The Best Scuba Diving In Phuket

Sample The Best Scuba Diving Phuket Offers With Our Great 3 Day Package

You won’t see all we have to offer but some of the best Phuket scuba diving can be covered in our 3 day package. As an added bonus you’ll get a great discount for booking multiple days. The best scuba diving around Phuket for just THB 1,100 per dive! Start your diving on either Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Friday and you’ll cover the best Phuket diving tours.

What Phuket Diving Sites Will I Visit?

Nine in total from the clear waters of Racha Noi to the imposing shadows of the King Cruiser Wreck. A whole range of underwater topography will be covered, walls, reef, boulders, sand flats and multiple wrecks. You’ll of course visit our iconic dive sites such as Shark Point, Koh Bida Nok and the King Cruiser Wreck. A truly diverse three days of diving. Along with the well known dive sites we have some great locations that tend to go under the radar. Koh Doc Mai for example is a terrific macro site. Seahorses, ghost pipefish and lots of vibrantly coloured nudibranch’s hide in the many cracks and crevices.

Koh Bon in the Similan Islands is famous for manta ray encounters but did you know that Racha Noi is also a favourite haunt? We certainly don’t see them all the time but if you’re lucky…

On the Phi Phi day we visit the stunning Koh Bida Nok and usually Turtle Rock. Turtle Rock is a great dive site that really lives up to its name. As well as the almost guaranteed hawksbill turtles, there’s plenty of other life to see. Fan corals, barrel sponges and swim throughs all often surrounded by schools of different snapper species.

Is It Suitable For Everyone?

Not quite, all of the dive sites are suitable for Open Water divers with the exception of the King Cruiser Wreck. You should be a minimum of Advanced Open water or at least have plenty of bottom time under your belt. You can take the opportunity to complete your Advanced Open Water for just an additional THB 4,200. Add another THB 3,500 and get certified with the extremely useful Enriched Air Nitrox Specialty. Our boat is the only Phuket diving day trip boat equipped with it’s own Nitrox membrane system.

What Will I See?

We’d love to real of a long list of spectacular marine life but there’s no guarantees with nature. What we can guarantee is if it’s there our superb guides will find it. Our dive masters and instructors dive at the sites everyday so if an animal has a permanent home, we’ll know the address.

Not only will they be able to show you the best scuba diving Phuket has to offer but they’ll keep you safe. Our guides have intimate knowledge of the topography and can navigate safely around the dive sites even when the current is at its strongest. Vital on our sometimes small dive sites.

How Much Will It Cost?

A three day package will cost THB 10,000 and would include: 9 dives, guide transfers (from Kamala, Patong, Karon, Kata, Rawai, Nai Harn and Chalong only), breakfast, lunch, snacks, water, tea and coffee. Pretty much all inclusive diving!

Equipment if required is THB 500 per day and there is a THB 600 Marine Park fee for the Phi Phi day only

I've been enjoying the incredible marine life in our oceans for over 25 years. 13 years ago I became a PADI professional, hoping to introduce as many people as possible to the incredible beauty of the seas.

Having been fortunate enough to dive all over south east and especially Thailand, I enjoy sharing my experience and passion on this blog.

Shark Point Phuket

For many divers visiting Phuket, Shark Point is at the top of the list. These stunning pinnacles half way between Phuket and Phi Phi attract tons of life from the featureless areas surrounding it. It's named after the leopard sharks that like to rest on the sandy bottom in the day time. They're not so common as they used to be but regular enough visitors for the dive site to frequently live up to it's name. Even without the sharks it c [...]

Yellow Boxfish – Toxic And Inspiring?

Yellow boxfish are virtually guaranteed on any Phuket scuba diving trip. Cute, quirky and very photogenic, the yellow boxfish hides a couple of surprising facts. It should be of no surprise that the yellow boxfish has some hidden survival strategies. Being bright yellow and swimming around with no discernible plan isn't going to keep you alive very long. It's swapped the usual fish strategy of being fast or spiky for something different. [...]

Cuttlefish – Cross Dressing Light Bending Camouflage Kings

Cuttlefish belong the to the mollusc family and look like something between an octopus and a squid. Unlike most molluscs, the cephalopod branch which includes cuttlefish, squid and octopus are fairly smart. Certainly compared to their simpleton slug cousins but as with all geeks there comes weirdness - lots of weirdness. Let's get the ball rolling with this cardiovascular indulgence.
