On our recent trip to Thailand, we wanted to learn to dive, and we could not have had a better dive instructor!! Truly amazing is all I can say. THANKS again for all your help and incredible knowledge. We learned from the best. See you next time!

“Great diving for the whole family”
We booked a diving holiday with Blue Guru over Chinese New Year this spring and had an excellent experience. From the planning stage (with unlimited patience of Helen and Chris to answer all our questions), to the actual trip and the dive courses, everything went perfectly well. On top, we had an extremely pleasant time on the magic Island of Koh Phra Tong (where the dive center is located). The dive center with its outstanding crew, Ilona, Richard and Daniel (Snippy), did everything to make this one of our most memorable trips. The quality of the courses and the dedication of the instructors were outstanding. From bubble maker for our youngest, open water for our 12-year old and advanced for Dad, everybody's expectations were exceeded. Passion, fun and competence meet in a magic place - what more can you ask for?

"Learning to dive in paradise!"
...Once we got started our dive instructor Snippy was patient and we felt completely relaxed and confident in the water with him. The initial stresses were easily overcome and in the end we really enjoyed our Open Water course...Overall, our experience with Blue Guru definitely exceeded expectation. Ilona, Snippy and the rest of the team were so friendly and provided a fun, relaxed yet safe environment in which to learn to dive. ...

"Diving for Christmas"
My wife and decided to spend this past holiday season on a dive vacation and after looking at several site we sent an e-mail to Blue Guru which was promptly responded by Chris from Blue Guru. Chris was very accommodating especially when I had to change my plans on multiple occasions (Sorry, Chris) and he set us with a fantastic schedule of dive instruction and various other dives along with arranging transportation and lodging. When we arrived at Koh Phra Thong we were greeted by staff members of Blue Guru who were very helpful and friendly. The following morning my wife had individual instruction with Snippy for her Advanced Open Water and he turned out to be a delightful and fun instructor whom my wife really felt comfortable and confident with in the water. Also during this trip we later went out for several dives to Richelieu Rock, Surin Island, Koh Tochai , and a couple of off shore dives and every excursions was handled with extreme personal and professional courtesy. Blue Guru limits the number divers per Dive Master which really made the experience that much more enjoyable and staff were always friendly and available to answer any questions and to take care of any needs that arose during the trip. So Thanks to Ilona, Snippy, Rich, and particularly to Elana and Karen (for hauling all of our gear back and forth!) we had a great time and we would definitely come back again!

"BEST DIVECOMPANY ON PHI PHI"
I'm a DM and my boyfriend had to get certified so we decided to koh phi phi to get his open and advanced open water. He had read about Moskito online and already heard great things about it. While walking to our hotel we were lost and wound up right outside the dive shop. The entire staff was friendly and gave us directions so after dropping our bags we went right back to the dive shop and booked all of his courses and dives for me and they gave us an amazing price and it was worth every penny.
He was able to start his coursework right away and all of his enclosed skill that afternoon so we could dive the next day.
Daniel was our instructor and was amazing- super professional and friendly and made my boyfriend really comfortable with all his skills and was great at making the teaching dives enjoyable for me as well.
The moskito dive boat is by far the best boat and they always had really small groups and the captain was great at moving around all the other boats and finding the best spots. The food was amazing as well.
They also had the best kits I've seen at any dive shop- no problems what so ever everything seemed really new and well looked after.
I whole heartedly recommend this dive shop- you won't find a better one anywhere! Great for learners as well as experienced divers!!!!!"

A small, but very nice group of dedicated divers doing their best to make all your dives special. I was with them for three weeks and the small crew of three (low season), Walter, Daniel and Andy are all great guys and dedicated divers. "

"THANK YOU !!!!
Thank you to Moskito Diving and Daniel helping to make the most 2.5 days on Kho Phi Phi! I was traveling with my brother for 16 days and we went straight to Moskito once we were settled on the Island as they came recommended and we were not let down. Daniel was so patient with me as I had a hard time adjusting to the pressure and staying straight. He kept me feeling safe and close and point the most amazing fish out to me. He was also kind enough to send us the underwater pictures he took of our dive.
When wanted to see the world below in Kho Phi Phi go fine Moskito Diving and see Daniel! "

"Novice Diver - Excelant Time - reviewed July 30, 2013
My sister and I are fairly new to diving, only having submersed once before. Daniel aka "Snippy" at Moskito Diving came highly recommended by a friend who is an expert Diver. Knowing I was a photographer he mentioned that Daniel was a great underwater photographer. My sister and I had an AMAZING time. Since we were new at diving and only had 2.5 days on the island we were able to do the beginning dive corse of 2 dives. Daniel was cool, calm and collective, my sister and I had not dove in years and with all the annoying stunts my sister was doing and my ear issues, Daniel was cooler then James Brown. He also sent us a bunch of photos he took that day while diving.
Just make the right choice and head over to Moskito Diving"

"I enjoyed diving with Daniel (Snippy) and found him a highly professional Diving Instructor"
A. McGowan, March 2013 via private email
“The instructor Daniel(Snippy) was great, he was very patient throughout the dives. Before the dive he would brief us on the dive site and the particular skills she will be doing, and what to expect when we go down, during the descent, he watches us closely, making sure that we are all safe and problem free, and after the dive when we are doing the dive log, he shares the data from his dive computer and explains what we saw underwater. He knows the area very well and has a pair of very sharp eyes underwater - he can show us many wonderful creatures underwater. Without him, we would just swim right pass it!"
