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.

We all know that our oceans are under siege, big time! Some of the issues facing our oceans are difficult for us to solve, some require a complete life style change. The good news is that there is one thing we can all do from the comfort of our computer screens and that is changing the type of sunscreen we use. Actually it's a no brainer if you are a scuba diver.

They have the ability to blend in the environment quite well and they can be quite difficult to notice underwater.
