fun and fast

The lessons was too heavy, to much stuff for 2 days. The teacher, patrica is a so good woman and it was a lot of fun with her and the group. The price was ok. It will be pretty nice when it g7ves more time to learn aaand du divs. But all in all im happy to made this.

Absolutely fantastic!

Great dive school, so friendly and welcoming. Our instructor Alex was absolutely fantastic, so thorough and professional, as well as being a great laugh too! Felt so safe whilst diving with him - a fantastic person to make you feel at ease on your first dive course! Our other instructor Nic was hilarious and a great addition to the group. Helped us out in some rough currents too, cool calm and collected. Overall amazing time at Davy Jones and would recommend to everyone!!!

PADI OW Certification -- not a good experience

I did my PADI Open Water certification there (3 days) and the reason for choosing DJL was a recommendation from a friend. Unfortunatelly I can't recommend them to others at all.

I was there at the end of last November and since it was the low season, I was the only student and ended up having private classes. They signed me up with a freelance instructor, which was good with the technicalities, but quite unfriendly, to say the least.

Besides the not so good experience with the instructor I had a couple of other issues:

1. I had money stolen from my wallet which I left in the classroom while practicing in the swimming pool. It was a small amount (360 BHT, which is enough for two meals there), so I didn't call the police or anything. I just notified the school, which, well... didn't do much about it other than "promising to investigate".

2. They promised I would be registered in PADI.com in 24h or so after the end of the course, but it took almost 20 days for it to happen. And that was after me contacting the school twice to request it.

Finally, regarding the equipment, it was "OK" for my (low) expectations. DJL is not the most expensive school there (but they're not the cheapest either). I really missed a depth gauge and my wetsuit had a big extra hole in it, but like I said, I had low expectations anyway.

After this bad experience, I rushed to a different school for two extra dives, now as a certified OW diver. I was relieved to learn there are much better schools there and had two great dives with others before heading home.

Great if you want to be an instructor, if you just want to be a good diver you won't get the attenti

Wasn't very impressed. Signed up to do my divemaster and decided to cancel the program. I was convinced I didn't want to be a scuba diving instructor, I just wanted to be a competent scuba diver. I felt that because of this a lot less interest was shown to myself. I said I wanted to get my money back for my dive master program and it took them 4 attempts to give me my money, on each of these attempts not once did they ask why I didn't want to continue with the program. This is a real shame because I actually really enjoy diving. Also the resort is very clicky and I am not into that sort of environment.

Incredible place to learn

Did my Open Water and Advanced PADI courses there and was super impressed by not just the price but the staff too. We had Alex and Nic as our instructors and couldn't have asked for better teacchers. A great laugh but also knew their stuff inside out so you always felt safe and in capable hands. Cannot recommend it enough!

Nice scubadiving center, great Course Director

I spent 2 weeks at DJL Diving for my IDC Course, I really appreciated the availability of Pete and Guy, the two Course Director. They did everything to help us to improve and gave us the time to do it and to get ready for the IE. The atmosphere was nice and we've had a lot of fun, both in the classroom and during the pool/open water sessions.

Well, in brief I really recommend you DJL for any scuba diving course you wanna take :-)

The place to learn diving

I've been diving for a couple of years (nearly 100 dives) before I came there. Ultimately stayed for over 2 months, doing EFR, PADI Rescue, Divemaster internship, as well as TDI Intro to Tech, Advanced Nitrox and Decompression Procedures. Had a lot of fun diving, including a couple of private trips ;-). DJL has become a go-to place on Koh Tao for me, I would definitely recommend them for all things diving: professional staff, logistics and guidance are top-notch. Classes are really good (even the dungeon), pool (with a bar!) is a big plus. Huge thanks to all instructors, DMT crowd, Mama & Papa, see you all soon! :-)

Didn't meet expectations

All in all, it was a fun day of scuba. I have only been once before in Maui, so my expectations were pretty high. All instructors were nice and helpful. Gear was perfect. My main reason for a 3 star review is the fact that we only dove for 20 minutes, however the trip took up our entire day. That would have been fine, we would have planned accordingly, but this was never told to us. We went at 9AM to sign up, had to wait, were given an hour lesson, had to wait, walked to the dock, had to wait, and so on. I have heard of other company's with better experience. Wasn't a bad day, but certainly could have been better organized.

Group of Irish there end of July

Fantastic staff for open water cource, so much fun and know exaclty what do, went on to the Advanced and James was a brilliant instructor and tailored the dives to what the group wanted. Night dive was fantastic and the wreck dive is something I will never forget.
The overall experience was a brilliant one, the video was a really nice thing to have after and is always great fun to watch. Would definately go back and dive there again. Having a bar next door to it was also a plus.

Awesome diving school and team!

Great instructors, fun-loving peeps! However, a smaller diving group would be better especially in the small pool (we asked for 4 and we were 8 in the group!)

Awesome Dive school, great instructors!

Did my open water with DJL, instructors were amazing. Everything to do with the teaching and diving was amazing I couldn't have asked for better. Awesome place to chill and eat food too.
Only thing I would say is that the accommodation was not good (for me). It was clean but No aircon in Thailand is something I wouldn't even wish on my worst enemies and the holes in the walls of these traditional style homes let in some nasty critters! If you don't mind feeling like you're the cheese melting on top of a nice piece of toast in the grill and trying to survive spiders the size of your hand go ahead and stay in the rooms, I did and can live to tell the tale. Anyway... what I'm saying is do your diving here for sure you will not regret it, but just stay somewhere else.

Great time diving

My partner and I had a wonderful time on our Open Water Course with Dani & Ray. The two instructors were patient, professional and passionate about diving. The groups were very small and we were all individually looked after with the absolute most care. The first days of theory helped prepare us for the real dives and made me feel much more confident about what to expect. I can't say much about the diving school in general, except that the equipment was sufficient but basic, which is perfectly fine for us beginners. The pool was pretty disgusting though. The water was really cloudy and jam packed with so many chemicals it left my with rashes on my skin and bright red burning eyes. Once we left the pool and got in the sea everything was great!
