Highly recommend this place for your dives in Taiwan! Coaches are amazing! They're a bunch of real dedicated and fun people and you would love the whole communal living concept if you're staying in the hostel and you would feel like part of the "big family" and it's really fun! The water in Kenting is beautiful, white sandy beaches, white fluffy clouds and a sea so blue that I saw a giant sea turtle on my second dive, Nemos and barracudas! What reason not to come? Professional. The way the lesson is being conducted is safe and progressive. The instructors know what they must do and what they have to do, and will take even take photos underwater of you, so it's like having fun in a safe and controlled environment. I'll definitely be coming back to do my Advanced Open Water with Taiwan Scuba Diving again! Thanks for the great memories! :D


This was the first dive centre I visited after completing my PADI Open Water course and I've returned many times. The main reason for going back - aside from the great diving - is the people at the centre, they make you feel very welcome. All the guides and instructors are very professional but great fun at the same time. The prices are very affordable and they serve up some great food to keep you going after a hard day underwater. I can't recommend it strongly enough whether you're an experienced diver or a total beginner.


I took the open water course at TDC (Taiwan Diving Center) and by the end was so glad I did the course with them. The salty wind and water naturally take a toll on the buildings and vehicles in Kenting. Don't be fooled by the rusty trucks, the instructors and equipments at TDC are excellent. During my open water course, my instructor, Ah-How, was patient and thorough which I believe was key to a solid foundation for learning to scuba. The staff were helpful in everyway possible and I met others who were beginners or is stationed there long term to get their dive master. Everyone went to town together each night for dinner which was a highlight for me, it doesn't get any better than hanging out with people who knows where the best places are. Go during the weekdays if you can to get the best TDC and Kenting has to offer and avoid the weekend rush.


This dive centre is very well located, within easy reach of the sea. Its staff are really friendly and helpful, and willing to go the extra distance to help visiting divers.
