Without question if you are interested in diving or even snorkeling for that matter, this is the place to visit. They are a long standing institution in Kamala and have excellent dive masters. They deserve their great reputation.

For get the tip about Chalong. In the high season better to stay in Kamala or nearby - to go on our local half day trips and for the Similan island trips too.
