Fun Diving With Local Dive Thailand

When we say certified divers or fun diving, we are simply referring to any dive that is not a training or certification dive. So a certified PADI Open Water diver who books a Phi Phi Island day trip tour with Local Dive Thailand, is a fun diver and on one of our day trip diving tours can do up to 3 fun dives that day, in this case it would be 2 at Phi Phi and one on the return journey home at Shark Point or Anemone Reef, depending on conditions. So if you are already a certified diver, PADI, SSI, TDI or other agency, you are welcome and encouraged to come fun diving with Local Dive Thailand on one, or all of our scuba diving day trip tours listed below.

Phuket Elephant Sanctuary

The recently opened Phuket Elephant Sanctuary promises to be a new kind of tourist attraction for Phuket. Not only will it house rescued elephants from the tourist and logging industries, it will also be a much needed point of education for tourists and the local community.

What Are My Chances of Diving With A Manta Ray In Phuket?

They often swim int [...]
