Only reputable dive center in Cambodia
Brilliant dive center and wonderful staff. Was so impressed by their professionalism that I had my 11 year old son complete his open water certification here. I wouldnt have trusted anyone else in Cambodia. The equipment is excellently maintained and the staff very safety minded.
We spent an overnight on the liveaboard, which we both loved. Waking at six in the morning in a tropical lagoon with the noise of the jungle is something that should be experienced. Good site briefings and great camaraderie on board..
Great day diving trip!
After having just finished my open water course in Thailand I decided to go on two fun dives with scuba nation. They were very attentive to my needs and the fact that i had least experience in a group. There were two dive masters for the group of four people. Since I used my air much faster than the others one of the dive masters, Andy, always looked after me and took me to shallower waters and for the second dive they split the group from the beginning so that everyone had the best experience. I always felt safe and even though the visibility was not the best, I saw some nice fish and corals. I really enjoyed my diving experience with scuba nation.
Attentive & Caring Staffs. Nice corals & Turtle.
We went to Last Chance & Koh Kon West with Mike. It was a great experience.
The weather was not so good, rocking boat and high waves, unclear visibility but luckily the water wasn’t that cold.
There was more things to see on Koh Kon West as more corals, fishes and even a pretty Turtle appeared out of nowhere. I was looking for a chance to see moray eel but unfortunately there was none…
However, the staffs of Scuba Nation, especially Mike had left us impressed. He was very attentive, careful and patient as my friend had terribly fear of cold water. He took her by his side the whole time and calmed her down.
Overall, I guess I will come back to SNV and dive with SN in a better weather condition to actually see the beauty of Koh Rong at its peak.
Dear Gerard & Vicky,
I wanted to email you to say a massive thank you for the opportunity to complete my open water course with Scuba Nation Cambodia. It was a very special moment during my 4 months of travel that I will never forget.
Your communication from the start via email was very prompt, professional and informative which made my decision to dive with Scuba Nation Cambodia an easy decision. Any follow up emails or questions I sent were once again actioned promptly and gave me the confidence to complete the online components prior to the practical course.
Once I arrived in Sihanoukville after a 6 hour bus ride from Phnom Penh I arrived at your dive shop. I was welcomed and felt at ease as soon as I walked in. Alison, Max, Ashleigh and Sopheak were fantastic from the start, I was so impressed by how friendly they all were. A team like that is a credit to them and yourselves!
Confined pool dive time! I only learnt at the end of the course that Sopheak is the only or first female dive instructor in Cambodia? She was fantastic! She was clear, concise and made everything super clear with the skills I needed to learn. After completing the skills in the confined pool dive I felt comfortable and confident with hitting the open water. I owe this to Sopheak she is a top class instructor. On a side note after the dive was done I was attempting to book my bus ticket back to Phnom Penh. Without being asked she took over the conversation and helped get me the bus ticket I desperately required. Thank you Sopheak!
Moving onto the open water. Firstly the boat was spot on. There was plenty of space and the sleeping quarters on the top deck was beautiful. I don't think I have had a better sleep over my whole trip! The captain and the crew were brilliant. I assume they don't speak English but when needed they would smile and assist whenever needed. I was amazed with the quality of the food. Every meal from breakfasts, lunches and dinner were prepared at a top level. Who would have thought you could have so many options out on the water. The quality of the Scuba gear was top class on the boat and I can see now why everyone goes to Scuba Nation for their gear, services etc.
My background is teaching and I always start my lessons with the end in mind. Do I feel confident and comfortable scuba diving at my new level? The answer is yes! The reason for this is because of the fantastic instructor Ashleigh who I feel so lucky I had her to teach me the skills required over the four dives. Ashleigh was professional, friendly, strict yet flexible and the best thing about her is if you didn't get the skill right she would let you know about it, give you some advice and make you do it again until she was happy you got it right. She comfortably was able to instruct two Swiss German speaking divers and an Australian with ease. I believe as a coach or instructor the hardest thing is to recognise different personalities, cultures, languages, abilities and cater for those accordingly. Her skills obviously as a diver are first class but as an instructor she is an unbelievably talented individual. I was lucky enough to catch up with my fellow open water crew (the Swiss) for a beer after the course and they thought the same thing about Ashleigh. I'm sure I am not the first and I know I won't be the last in my sincere thank you to Ashleigh for the confidence she has instilled in me to continue diving.
Thank you Ashleigh and the Scuba Nation team for a wonderful experience! I have a dive booked for Thursday off Indonesia and I can't wait!
