We had 3 days of diving with Michael and his team who created a nice atmosphere. Very competent team, who were very professional, attentive and friendly. Food was great, and the rented equipment was in great condition. Michael was very fast to reply and easy to communicate with. We had 6 amazing dives and we would highly recommend Wetzone Divers.
I had 2 day trip divings to Kho Bon and Richelieu with Wetzone. They were very processional and I could see that the whole equipments were new and very well, carefully maintained. This gave me immediate trust to this dive shop. The big boss, Michael, was meticulous on quality of air and all their equipments, he was dedicated and hardworking for making the best experience for his customers. He was also super generous on air, I got each time more than average air quantity 👍🏼 The whole staff, Lian, Kevin, Aira and all other staff were very friendly, easygoing but experienced, competent, caring and ready to help. They didn’t hesitate to have small chitchat / answer my questions, which they might have repeated hundreds of thousands times before. You feel very welcomed and close to them, helping more relaxed diving experience based on friendship and trust. They have good and chilling vibes and you will feel cared and having a ‘buddy’ rather than just being treated like a passerby customer. I saw other reviews about the space in the boat. It’s a speed boat and yes you might feel it’s smaller if you are used to be on a mass tourism diving/snorkelling boat with two floors. However, everything’s perfectly organised and I didn’t feel uncomfortable during my trip. Also, it gave me more chances to talk to other people next to me, which was also very interesting to share each other’s diving experiences. Wetzone is still small but strong, highly professional, almost artisanal, high standard of dive shop but keep friendly and amusing vibes in Khao Lak. Finally, Wetzone is eco conscious which I loved very much, too! I would definitely recommend Wetzone to my friends, families, and to all of you, planning to have a day trip to Similan National Park 🥰 Photo by Aira ❤️
What can I say….Wetzone Divers offer a 5🌟 service!!! I’m PADI certified (Open Water) but only had 10 dives under my belt, so it was very important to me, to go diving with a company, who had a great reputation and who I felt comfortable with. Wetzone were all of the above AND MORE!!! 🤿👌🏻 The team were so friendly, welcoming and organised, they made me feel at ease straight away!! ☺️ We went to Koh Bon on a day trip and did two dives and they were spectacular!! So much marine life!! 🐠 My buddy was Chris, one of the Wetzone Divemasters / instructors! Chris is so lovely, highly professional and really friendly!! 🙌🏼 Thank you to the whole team - you made it a day to remember and we had such a laugh too!! 🧜🏼♀️ The crew on the boat were also very helpful and the lunch was delicious!! Great service from start to finish!!! Highly recommend!!! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Prices were the average price for day trips to those dive sites but for the safety, thoughtful service, dive experience, boat speed and quality of guides, they are likely by far the most value for money in Khao lak, so don’t bother looking elsewhere for day trips. They offer trips to the best sites in Thailand. it is really worth highlighting that they made special efforts to invest in eco-friendly measures, eg selling reef-friendly sunscreen at rly cheap prices, no plastic bottles and no disposable food packaging, eco friendly boat paint coating. I think as divers we must support dive shops that spend on efforts to protect the marine environment which we travelled so far to experience. For that alone, I will highly recommend Wetzone. Also, their boat is super fast/new and clean. Other boats might take twice the time to reach those sites. The Thai boat crew are super helpful and fun. Instructors/guides were experienced and knew the places well. Lunch was simple but very delicious even by my Asian standards A few people on the boat can agree that compared to other dive shops in the area, this is probably the most well-organised dive shop and communication was very fast and easy. There are other shops that act as agencies that will send u to Wetzone for day trips and u have to pay a commission to them, so just book directly with them for best prices. But I personally can’t recommend taking the advanced open water course with them mostly because they only offer a limited number of electives and cannot offer night or nitrox electives (But I didn’t need them anyway so it was fine) and also the AOW course was much pricier than others (minus PADI e learning). The instructors/guides are excellent though.
We had a really great time doing our open water certification at wet zone. Michael the owner was very accomodating and made sure we had the best dive sites possible for the days we were there. Our instructor Jesus was absolutely brilliant! He went above and beyond to ensure we got the most out of each and every dive we did, as well as covering the course material thoroughly. The company boat is also great fun and much faster and with a better atmosphere than other dive boats in the area. Can't recommend these guys enough!
