Six months ago i decided to go to Koh Tao and take up scuba diving like I always wanted. With so much choice around and no reference to base my choice of dive school on, I took to the web and send out a bunch of emails. Marcel van den Berg responded promptly and unlike all the other generic emails I received, Marcel took the time to explain all the details and even how best ro get there and what else I could expect from life on the island. My decision was made and from the first time instructor Emma Ong took me under her wing I knew I made the correct one. I have recently completed my Divemaster training through the guidance of Maddy Barker and Gaz Jameson and it was without a doubt the best experience of my life. The facilities and accommodation are great, the instructors and staff friendly, helpful and utterly professional and the diving incredible. Sairee Cottage Diving is definitely the place I would choose for any further courses or programs. 5* plus!!
