"I had my 2 days advanced diver course with Kontiki Krabi. They were an excellent bunch of people (instructors, on board crew, and even those at their retail store) who were friendly and gave us assuring answers whenever we needed them. To rate them, I would give them a '5 - excellent' rating. Our safety were well taken care of and we knew we were in good hands, because we have heard of rogue dive operators around in some Thai islands, and we were fortunate to have Kontiki to deliver quality services." - Jason Wu, Singapore, 6 May 2011 ...
"Everybody was professional in their job. They enjoy their job and therefore give their best to us. They are strict and I think that is professional, maintaining the standard of diving." - Alan Lim, Singapore, 10 April 2008 ...
"Excellent friendly service. Very professional. Diving with Kontiki really allowed me to relax as I knew the Divemasters, Maria and Ilva, were taking great care of my wife and family. For the first time I could relax and really enjoy my own dive experience without worrying about the safety of my wife, son and daughter." - Nick Whittle, United Kingdom, 29 March 2008 ...
