Incredible Diving

18.03.2020 by Julia Anderson report

Jonathan is an exceptional teacher and was the perfect Advanced Open Water instructor. Not only is he very patient and knowledgeable, but his love for diving is infectious and he is full of great stories. He prepared me well for dives that had particularly strong currents and made the experience very enjoyable. My boyfriend, who is a more experienced diver, is also convinced that Jonathan is one of the best divemasters out there. He knew all of the dive sites we went to in the Similan Islands like the back of his hand. As a bonus, Jon's great underwater photography skills captured our magical dives better than we could have imagined. I would highly recommend Jon for any course or dives you are planning and we will definitely be reaching out to him next time we are in Thailand.

    Hi Julia and Peter Thank you very much for your awesome review! It was great to meet you and have a lot of fun together during the Advanced Course above and below the water. We were very lucky with so many Mantas in the Similan's! I look forward to seeing you both back here soon for more diving. Stay safe Jonathan.

First Diving Experience

26.02.2020 by Adrian Sheen report

John was a very reassuring trainer to an ‘old boy’ who was diving for the first time. My daughter came with us, though she has many dives to her credit and agreed with me that John was excellent and probably the best dive trainer she has met. I look forward to my next diving experience with a PADI trainer.

First and exp diving

26.02.2020 by Johan Persson report

Me and my girlfriend went out diving with jonathan and had a great time, for me being the first time we felt safe and for my girl who already been diving she felt an awesome experience without me dragging the diving down. All made possible with Jonathan’s leadership.

Jon Went All Out :)

23.02.2020 by Mr. Adam chuang report

Just another regular diving trip just to clock dives we thought. But Jon's personal attentiveness made it different. He went all out to make sure we see and experience what diving in Phuket had to offer.....Sharks, Barra, 3 legged turtle, Nudibranch, soft corals, caves.....blah blah blah. Ensured our comfort, safety & most of all a memorable fun time both above and under water. Man with years of experience and knowledge of the trade and location. Well done Jon!!!! Hope to see you in Komodo....Yum Seng!

Thankful to have had Jon with us

21.02.2020 by Adam Glass report

Like many others, this was my wife and I's first time diving. Any instructor can relay safety information and procedural information. Not everyone can make you feel as safe and secure as Jon did, while creating one of our most memorable experiences in Thailand. His calming approach was very reassuring during the entire day. He was incredibly knowledgeable and experienced. He recognized my wife's stress rising and immediately jumped into action making her experience enjoyable. I would highly recommend him to anybody considering first time scuba diving as we will never forget our time with him.

First time diving

20.02.2020 by Nadia Glass report

This was my very first experience with scuba diving. John did a fabulous job of prepping us for our first experience as well as making us comfortable with the equipment and safety rules. I was so nervous on our first dive, but John was there by my side the whole time! I was very grateful for his patience and support. By the third dive, all my fears were gone. Thank you John for making our first scuba dive such a great experience! Adam is really excited to get certified now!
