What’s our previous Divemaster trainnees thinks:
Divemaster training Doing my Divemaster course at Khao Lak Explorer was the best choice I made in my life, I gain tremendous experience and continue working with them after the completion of the course. My mentor Marcus was amazing, and diving with manta rays, whale sharks during a few month was breathtaking.
Now me and my boyfriend are cruise directors on a red sea liveaboard, thanks to Khao Lak Explorer to sponsor us and gave us a great recommendation.
Our life as changed for the best, thanks to Khao Lak Explorer Team.

Best Divemaster Training ever at the Similan islands, Thailand
Signing up for a Divemaster course in Thailand with Khao Lak Explorer was one of the best decision I made. Khao Lak Explorer team is family style, friendly team, everybody got along, I feel like Khao Lak was my new home really soon after arriving there. The diving was amazing, manta ray, whale shark and all the daily “usuals”, turtles etc… Now I made the choice to extend my year break to continue in the diving industry. A life changing experience !
