- Liselott Håkansson
Big Thanks to Blue Planet for a great day 3/3. And specially thanks to Brice who was a very professional and nice diveinstructor. He gave me a very good refresh for my OW cert because its been a while sins my last dive. After that we did two really good dives at Koh Bida.

Together with my son and daughter we booked a day dive trip to Koh Haa, Hin Muang and Hin Daeng, with Blue Planet Divers. Although a bit expensive (specially after Koh Tao), we were very satisfied with the high quality of their service. The office staff were kind, friendly and helpful with information in both english and french. Highlights: catamaran trip to dive sites with tasty food and enough space to chill and admire the beautiful landscape * well maintained equipement * Koh Haa is a must! With caves, extraordinary biodiversity and a gorgeous setting. Thanks to Yann, Johan and Fins for their diving support. Highly recommended!
