Our Story

Discovery Divers in Koh Samui, Thailand. Discovery Divers has been operating since 1999 in Koh Samui at the Amari Koh Samui and is well known for our customer service and flawless safety record over those 20 years. Discovery Divers is owned and operated by Eric Vinik, who is a PADI master scuba diver trainer, as well as an Emergency First Responder instructor.

We have the most experienced staff of any of the diving schools in Koh Samui and all of our staff are full time employees of Discovery Divers and do not work for other dive shops. We use full time staff so we can train our staff to teach and lead dives the way that we want it done. This also creates consistency in our customer’s experiences as all of our instructors teach in the same manner and have worked with each other for a long time which creates the team atmosphere that we have here at Discovery.

We believe first and foremost in safety and customer service. All of our scuba instructors are emergency first responders and we provide our own oxygen and first aid kits aboard all of our boats. Our scuba diving equipment is top notch and replaced annually to ensure that you always have clean, comfortable and working equipment for your dives and courses. We keep all of our equipment on-site at our dive shop so that our customers can see the condition and we can also fit equipment correctly for all of our guests.

We keep all of our groups small for better experiences. We even can usually provide private instruction for your group upon request. We realize that you all have a choice when your are picking a dive school to visit during your vacation and we here at Discovery will make sure to make your time with us an experience of a lifetime.
