If you have a passion for diving and would like to make the ocean your office then your journey to become a professional diver begins here with the PADI Divemaster Course!
Came to Phi Phi to do my rescue, EFR and divemaster course with blue view divers. They were so helpful when I was trying to plan my trip there over email, quick responses and loads of information!
All the staff there are awesome, and I really enjoyed doing my courses!
Diving off long tail boats is wicked and by far my favourite way to dive. Always small groups, it’s a lot more personal and you get to know people. The lunch was amazing aswell!
Diving around Phi Phi has by far been my best yet, good visibility and so much to see! Will definitely come back here to dive again!
Cheers to everybody at blue view for one of the best experiences and for making me a divemaster! 🙂bethSpleen Trip Advisor Reviewed March 2016
