Amazing Local Dives

If we tried to sum all of our yearly dives, we would simply run out of fingers. So we don’t write about every dive, just the ones that matter, like the times we get Minky Whales on our safety stops, or the dives when a Whale Shark decides to do laps around Anemone Reef for 45 minutes so that everyone can get a selfie with her in the background!

Manta Bay – A Beautiful Phuket Dive Site

We started diving the beautiful Phuket dive site at manta bay a few years ago. Mainly when Banana Rock was too busy but the new coral growth and marine life has seen us return frequently. It's now a regular dive site for the second immersion on the Racha Noi/Yai scuba diving tour. There's plenty to see for all levels and conditions are generally very easy. Everyone! It's a very simple dive site. The shallow areas are perfect for PADI D [...]

Night Diving In Phuket – Simple And Rewarding

You won't see night diving in Phuket advertised very often simply because there aren't too many options. It certainly is possible and a single long dive at Kata Beach can be very rewarding. Kata Beach is a calm sheltered bay and you don't need to go any deeper than 12m. Unusual and interesting creatures that don't seem to be found anywhere else around Phuket reside here. The reef is only a short swim from the beach and you can begin the di [...]

Why We Can’t Wait To Go Diving Again

Scuba diving is a lot more than just getting wet. It's been 9 weeks now that we've been unable to go diving and although we understand why, that doesn't make it any less frustrating. There's many reasons that so many decide to take up scuba diving and continue to do so for the rest of their lives. We asked our staff and some of our guests what they get out of diving and here's what we've come up with. Obvious we know but it really is s [...]

Scuba Diving New Normal For Phuket
