When shopping around for the right dive company to either teach you how to dive, or to take you diving when already certified, you can ask yourself two questions.
How experienced will my instructor be?
Is he or she a patient and caring individual?
Our teaching style is to have you go at your own speed, with an emphasis on your instructor being connected with your unique personality. From the first classes that I taught in 1997,I felt that teaching in small groups was in the better interest of the guest and when teaching children and or families. As our guest, you will learn the 3 C's. "Competence" "Confidence" and then "Comfortable". PRIVATE PADI courses for beginners as well as certified divers are available to have us custom tailor the right class and experience for you, your family and your friends. Our instruction team teaches in Chinese,Korean,Spanish,Italian,Japanese,Russian,French,German,Polish,Swedish,Danish, Thai and English. We can come to your hotel or villa, and give you the best personal service that you can find anywhere in Phuket.
Price should never be the deciding factor.... As some dive companies charge a little less than Siam Aquatic Adventures, I have priced our services to give you, the guest, the most comprehensive learning environment possible. Teaching private and semi-private classes is our form and style.We use Mastery learning technics that move away from a time based model, to a performance based curriculum. Our company has a "no rush" promise to you as our valued guests that we treat you as members of our family. For those of you that have children 10-14 years of age, I treat your children as my sons and daughters. I have two sons that I trained when they were both 13 years of age. Your children will be my children during either classes or when being guided during dives.

As of this year, I have 19 years of teaching experience on 4 continents, and my family of instructors, ALL have a minimum of 5 years of continued teaching and guiding experience, with some having more than 12 years. My philosophy is that expertise and experience is beneficial to the new diver.Please check out our many photo's on Instagram SiamAquaticAdventures.

Gregg has been a great instructor - and he was very good at making me feel safe during the dives. When I started the diving lessons, I had my doubts and was a little freaked out, but with help from Gregg and his dive master (Andreas) - I was able to get beyond my limits in the coolest way. I am very blessed that I got my certification, and I will definitely keep diving! A Huge thank you Gregg !
My name is Jialei,from China. I got my PADI open water 17-18th, August with my amazing instructor Gregg Aidikoff!!! From the beginning of the training, Gregg was encouraging me and trying to get me over my biggest fear which is the water, but he never gave up and tried his best to make me trust him and allow him to take me to this amazing experience, even when I tried to give up a couple times he was there to take care of me, and finally I DID IT!!! I can’t believe I had done six dives in two days and I did so well without fear and with all the skills he taught me. I can say I’m super confidence now diving under water, his patience and experience under water just made me feel confident of myself and I can’t ever forget this amazing experience I shared with Gregg and my lovely girlfriend Harriet!!! I strongly suggest Gregg as a wonderful instructor with more than 14,000 dives open water and 40 years of experience, he made me feel comfortable and relaxed with his patience and confidence, I’m looking forward to diving with him again next time in Thailand!!!
Gregg is an experienced and caring teacher who took the time to ensure that everyone understands key points and techniques. Learning to dive is the hardest part of diving and he makes it feel safe and easy.
Diving is a big challenge specially for the people like us from mountain. But diving with Gregg made this so simple and easy that one would just fall in love with the under water world. Thank you Gregg for making this possible.
October last year I completed my Deep Dive Specialty with Gregg. The training I received was very thorough, Gregg did a great job of highlighting the risks associated with the deeper dives. But at the same time Gregg was very easy going and was happy to answer all of my questions, no matter how silly. Will definitely dive with Gregg again in the future.
In May 2015 I took my Junior Open Water certificate, and I had Gregg as my instructor. Not only did he teach me how to dive, but also how to feel comfortable in the water.
As soon as he started talking to me and telling me what to do, I knew that I would be in good hands for the rest of the trip. It was a really fun experience and I am so glad that I did it.
Last year I was lucky to be able to join a class trip (week without walls) with my daughter’s school (QSI Zhuhai).
The trip included an Open Water class with Gregg. I joined the course together with all the students, and I had one of the best weeks of my life. Moreover, it was a very special and wonderful experience to share with my oldest daughter.
Gregg is an fantastic instructor, and I was amazed how well he interacted and handled all the kids. Before going to Thailand several of the students were a bit anxious. However, Gregg and his co-instructors always made sure that everyone felt safe and secure. All students certified the Open Water course and they all did great.
We look forward to many more courses and guided scuba diving tours with Gregg in the future.
I was there when Gregg fell in love with diving. It never failed to bring a smile to his face. I can see why it gives him such pleasure to reveal the magic to each student he invites to discover a whole new world.
