I went on a Discover Scuba Diving to Sail Rock and it was simply amazing. I enjoyed the two 45 min dives thoroughly and my guide was very helpful. My wife did not take part in the DSD but was able to join us on the boat and enjoied it as well. Couple of days later we went on the second trip with The Dive Academy to visit the Angthong National Park and what a trip. We had planned to visit Angthong but did not know they offered a trip like that as well. Even though it was probably somewhat more expensive it was worth every Baht. Being in a smaller group with helpful and knowledgable people was great. Sophie and Athien (hope it is spelled correctly) were great guides and showed us some very nice spots for snorkeling.
Thank you for two wonderful trips

Hi Orn,

Thank you for your great review and it was a pleasure to meet you and your wife. A DSD and Angthong would be 2 great new experiences here in Thailand and we are fortunate to have shown you both!

We will pass on your feedback to Sophie & Etienne!

Best regards,
The Dive Academy

Sophie brought me out to some really cool spots and made everything simple and safe for my intro to freediving.
With ten years of experience she has lots of tips and a great understanding, almost second nature to her. Such a fun and lovely person too!
