Dear Jo,

I would absolutely love to leave a comment because that was an absolutely amazing experience and having a fun, exciting, ready to have a time(excluding the mornings pre-coffee!) instructor makes all the difference. I truly had a fantastic time and fell instantly in love with diving. I hope to someday dive with you again, maybe on some 1800’s wrecks in the newfoudland!

Well I have you to thank for certifying me and giving me one of the best B’day I could imagine and one I certainly will never forget.

... and a big THANKS to Padi and Seashell for being awesome and extremely accommodating…thanks guys!)

Cheers and Happy Diving!!

Specialement pour Julien beraud,

Arrive par hazard sur Koh Tao, Julien fut l'un des premiers francais que je rencontrais. Assez reserve au premier abord, il a suffi de prendre le temps pour lui decouvrir une personnalite tres attachante, tout comme sa petite famille…et meme la GRANDE famille….Seashell.

Si attachante en fait qu apres avoir passe l'open water je decidais de rester pour l'advanced et d'autres fun dives. Patient, consciencieux et tres pro , je recommande aux francais passant sur cette ile de venir faire un tour a Seashell, meme s'il s'agit juste de boire une biere et d'ecouter les histoires droles des instructeurs.

Merci encore a Julien de m'avoir fait decouvrir la plongée et de me l'avoir fait de manière si ludique , tout en nous faisant comprendre l'importance de suivre les regles.

A tout bientôt pour le DMT


I am so thrilled taht my very first dive experience was with Seashell. I must admit that I didn't know what to expect and I was a little nervous when I first got in the water. My instructor Jo made me feel so comfortable and relaxed. She explained every step in detail, slowly and repeated it.

She is a wonderful teacher and did her job well..I am addicted ! I can't wait to continue on this diving journey and I am so thankful to seashell for helping kick it off !!!

Thanks so much
Hannah Klempika


Salut a tous !

Merci a vous d'avoir pu me faire realiser un de mes reves si lointain pour moi qui suis souvent paralysee par la peur. Merci au film « les dents de la mer » de m'avoir rendu la tache si difficile !!

Mais aussi merci a caroline et a celine pour leur gentillesse, leur sourire, leur comprehension et leur competence… Je me souviendrai toujours de vous deux pour m'avoir permis d'acceder a un nouveau monde merveilleux comme un reve….et qui n'est pas fini ..



La plongee c'est comme le voyage…quand on y a goute on ne peut plus s'en passer!

Je ne pensais vraiment pas faire de la plongée un jour. Finalement une fois arrivee a Seashell/koh tao j'ai enchaine l'open water et l'advanced..

Vivement les autres plongees…


Awesome days diving, great dive school, great staff.

The divesites are all great and chumphon was amazing, down to 30 meters not the greatest viz but yeh we did it! Caro was an amazing teacher. I learnt so much that I will recommend her to everyone. Celine was a great DMT, very helpful and always with a smile on her face.

Great times, Great people….Will miss you guys !


Thank you to everyone at Seashell for making our Open Water Course the best experience we've had so far on our travels. We spent a lot of time shopping around the many dive schools on Koh Tao and choose Seashell because they were by far the friendliest on the island. Everyone is so nice and made us feel very welcome.

Big special thanks to Nico for his patience and outstanding teaching skills. Without him, we would probably still be at the bottom of the sea wondering what to do!

Our first open water dive was an experience I will take to my grave so THANK YOU for making that possible. You are all wonderful amazing people and thank you once again for taking the time to know us.

We look forward to returning here again in the future. Many thanks and Big Love

I have a number of things to say and all are really valid so they are to be read :

Firstly, really good pricing with 4 nights free accommodation this was by far the best deal we found. Next, the setting of the dive center is astronomical!, really it was quiet amazing. The facilities were world class and I recommend that William and Kate should come here when they next travel!
Josephine was so cool, extremely clear in the teaching and instruction but also fun and enjoyable at the same time. I always felt safe coz Jo was always in control of every situation. As a result, my passion for this sport has been kindred immensely and I cannot wait until I descend the water depths for more fun.

Jo sets a fine example of an instructor indeed, all the staff are really awesome.

Thank you so much for an unforgettable once in a life time experience !

Thanks guys & a special thanks to Leo for the great day! We had loads of fun "discovering" scuba diving and we will be back for more! Big cheers from Portugal and Ukraine!

Dear Seashell Divers,
I´d like to compliment you on your service today - my daughter (junior scuba) and I ware having some fun dives at Tao. We have been diving at Tao and elsewhere in Thailand quite a few times, and it´s everything else than self-evident that the dive instructors take good care of her. Today was perfect - helping with the equipment (mine as well, since I have a slight wrist power problem), helping with the current, really looking back u/w every minute if she´s ok, giving her the possibility of breaking off the dive if needed.
A big thanks to your diving school and Chris, our Divemaster. We will sure use your services next time on Tao and are happy to recommend you back in Bangkok.
Happy New Year, Johanna Vänskä, Head of Primary School


We had an awesome time on Koh Tao because you guys showed us how wonderful the Open Water could be. We met a lot of nice people in this resort, diving school and enjoyed every minuet staying with you. Many thanks to "Moh" the best instructor we could imagine.

To Jo & all the Seashell crew.
Thank you so much for an awesome 4 days. I thoroughly enjoyed diving and can't wait to continue exploring the depths of the ocean. This has easily been the most enjoyable experience of my travels. Thanks for your patience, enthusiasm & consideration towards us.
All the best for the future … Lee
