    Unproffesional and possibly dangerous. It seems that unqualified staff are teaching discover scuba courses and that they have little or no knowlege of the marine life found on local dive sites. Most of the dive consisted of them picking up sea urchins or cushion stars to show off to the female divers while other members of the group were left unsupervised while their fins hit and damaged the coral.

      Dear Nell,

      Thank you for taking the time you write a review of the school.

      I’m not sure if you are based here, or you will be back to Thailand any time soon, but allow me to explain a little about the dive school.

      Phangan International Diving School was taken over by new management at the end of November, and now has a totally new team of instructors and divemasters.

      I’m very sorry that you had a bad experience with our predecessors and would like to offer you your DSD again with the new school that we have here at any time you choose.

      We strive to offer the highest standard at Phangan International Diving School and would be delighted to see you soon.

      Please feel free to e-mail me with any questions you may have at

      Kind Regards,

      Fran Mason

    After booking my open water course I had a look online and found these crappy reviews. I was nervous to say the least. But I can honestly say that my experience with phangan international dive school was fantastic from beginning to end. I think it’s under new management now or something.
    This dive school has great teachers, great facilities and simply amazing diving! A big thank you to my instructor Mark who was so patient and made me feel really safe. Recommend to anyone and everyone 🙂
    These guys rock!

    Weangthai Resort is now Hacienda Beach Club
    So whats still the same .
    The management and a lot of negative reviews followed by some self written answers .
