Good diving school - better co-ordination required

The instructors are great. The reception staff are very friendly and are not pushy. The co-ordination could have been better. Communication on which vehicle to board wasn't very clear and we were left around to find things out by ourselves. The time seemed quite limited between the early dives and the afternoon dives so the instructors barely had time to organize everything for the afternoon dives if they were coming straight from their morning dive sessions, so everything seemed a little rushed.

Great staff, great experience

The only reason for not giving Excellent score is the equipment. It is time to refurbish. Other than that, the staff are professionals. Everyone! Special thanks to Matthew who was absolutely brilliant, professional as well as sensitive with my 12-year old daughter.

Two nice dives

We had two very nice dives. The dive sites were good, and the divemaster and the rest of the staff did a great job. I can strengt recommend DJL to other divers!

Good facilities but the same diving spots

The staff was nice and friendly and knowledgeable. The equipment were of good quality and the size of the groups was nice aka smaller. I did my basic and advance classes in a week and we basicually did the same two spots everyday because some staffers didn't want to get out of their routine.

Relaxed Environment and Energetic Instructors

Completed my PADI Open Water with DJL. Matt Hall was my instructor along with a couple others who assisted. All staff were helpful and enthusiastic, they made sure everyone felt comfortable during the dives and gave individual attention when needed. DJL equipment was in good working order for the most part, though some looked as though it could be replaced after long use and on one dive I had a hose that had a very slow leak leading to a shorter dive than expected despite being toldby the instructors that it shouldn't be an issue when I mentioned it during pre-dive equipment checks. The boat was old and pretty basic, but got us to and from each dive site without any issues; it would be nice if they had a it more shade aboard to escape the intense sun.

Great diving experience

I had a great time at Davy Jones Locker. The guys really took their time to guide and make sure I learn it on my tempo. I would had preferred a larger group than I was in. The group consisted only of two guys. I would figure that if the group is larger than 5, it can also get annoying. The diving sights were cool and I had the feeling I was learning in a fun and safe way.

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.

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! :-)

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!)

Great dive school, very friendly and has a more personal touch

There are so many dive schools on Koh Tao, and some of them are huge, I looked at perhaps 7 or 8 of them and just felt that the large ones were just interested in getting you in and giving you the standard chat, whereas with DJL I actually got to chat to them for quite a while, got a good feel for them and liked how the operated.

I did a refresher there and then the advanced course, the instructor was really knowledgable and helpful, made the diving very easy and lots of fun. Would definitely go back there again.

The instructors are great and friendly, i had the bad luck to have a rain and a late and quick training , which did not help me to get confident with the diving, but i will def try it again.

'Fin'tastic instructor!

My instructor was very helpful, knowledgeable and overall made my experience worthwhile, I even stuck around for the Advanced Open Water Course . The staff could be more organized as well as keep better maintenance of the client transport (ie add a rail to the taxi to ensure safety) and also keep first aid boxes equipped. The staff is friendly and the overall energy is positive, just a bit unorganized

Friendly and competent staff

Davy Jones Locker Diving is a very friendly diving center, with very affordable rates. I had my Advanced Open water with them, and they offered accomodation included in the course rate. The instructors seemed very competent. I think however that the service might be improved. For example, 2 or 3 dives have been made in the same spot. I think probably because this was more convenient, since on the same boat there were other people doing fun dives or other level courses. I think that the dives and courses could be tailored better in order to give a greater experience.

Siamo stati molto fortunati

Siamo arrivati da DJL per caso. L'istruttore Chris molto paziente e gentile.
Abbiamo avuto una bella impressione della scuola sin dall'inizio, dalla presentazione che ci ha fatto il ragazzo alla reception.
Molto ben organizzati ma anche rilassati.
Bellissima esperienza.

Diving school

This was my first time diving and I took the Open water padi and adventure course. I loved it. But the thing I didn't like which was kind of a big deal was that we weren't aloud to use our Go Pro (which we specially bought for this experience) in the first course, The Padi.. When we were there, there was so much better visibility in our first course, so the pic and videos were not nearly as beautiful as they would have been if we could have used it the first couple of days.
