Reef Dive Centre About Our Professional Team

Reef Dive Centre are proud to boast the best dive professional team on Koh Tao. We have searched the length and breadth of the island to bring not only experience that is second to none, but also a level of friendliness and professionalism you will find nowhere else.

Our entire instructor team speak fluent English. Many are able to teach in a variety of languages to suit many nationalities, but our favorite language is underwater signaling of course!

Our dive professional team hail from all over the globe, from different cultures and backgrounds, but we all have one thing in common; A love of scuba diving as a sport and introducing new people to our world, as well as fierce passion for protecting the environment, especially the extremely fragile underwater world.

JOE Instructor

Reef Dive Centre - Joe

Koh Tao veteran Joe had visited the island many times before finally trading in his retail career for a life in the sun as a scuba instructor. Joe has a big passion for marine life and the vibrant colours found under water and he loves to share these exciting experiences with new divers and also keep things interesting for the more experienced.

Joes other passion is wreck diving and having dived some of the top wrecks in the world, when he is not teaching you can probably find him at our local wreck.

DAMIAN Instructor

Reef Dive Centre - Damian

'From a city in the south of Spain called Sevilla. Damian was a Set and Scenery Constructor for theatre and cinema and fire juggler but his real passion was diving. One day he decided to turn his hobby into a way of life.

For Damian, teaching others how to be calm under the sea is really satisfying. Changing fear into confidence is great. He really finds amazing how the different underwater species interact each other creating this magic balance, like Nemos living in the anemonies or the gobies sharing a burrow with the blind shrimp.
