Charter Your Very Own Phuket Private Diving Tour

Phuket is a busy diving destination and trying to avoid the crowds can be difficult. We try our very best on our own very comfortable dive boat MV Kebsup. We can’t always do it so occasionally it can feel a little crowded. Most divers enjoy the opportunity to meet fellow like minded people but some don’t. For those who’re not quite as gregarious a others then you can charter your own speedboat.

A private boat charter is the only way to ensure you get the Phuket diving sites to yourself. You can choose the dive sites you like and avoid other boats. It’s relatively inexpensive if you have a decent size group to share the costs.

Even though these boats are not owned by us, our staff will go with you to make sure everything runs smoothly and you receive the level of service and care that we pride ourselves on. There’s no better guides on the island than our super experienced PADI pro’s.

Where Can I Go?

Well that’s up to you, all of our local Phuket diving sites are certainly on the menu. You could even charter to the fabulous Similan Islands or the fantastic Southern Andaman dive sites. At the very southern tip of Racha Noi we have a seldom visited manta ray cleaning station! Definitely worth considering.

If you just want a half day and be back for lunch time, you can simply go to Racha Yai. In a speedboat the journey will only take about 25 minutes and you’ll be in the water long before the day trip boats arrive. You’ll then have the rest of the day to just relax back at your hotel or enjoy some Phuket sightseeing.

Only Diving?

Nooo, it’s your charter! If you want to go to a secluded beach in between dives then you can do so. If not all onboard are divers then they can go snorkelling, either direct from the boat or from the beach. At Phi Phi, Racha Noi and Racha Yai we can take you to great little beaches with very few or no other people. Have your picnic lunch either on the beach or on the boat, it’s really up to you.

Free diving and snorkelling is just as popular for private tours as diving. Again it will get you away from crowds, good snorkelling spots can often be very crowded. With your own boat you can either get there first or just divert to a place which is just as good but not convenient for the larger boats.

What Do We Do On Your Phuket Private Diving Charter

We will organise the boat of your choice and our excellent staff will accompany you. All diving or swimming supervision will be undertaken by our experienced PADI professionals to ensure your safety and enjoyment. All equipment will be supplied by us. We don’t trust anybody else when it comes to your safety or the standard of the scuba equipment you’ll be using.

How Much Does It Cost?

That depends on numbers, destination and the standard of boat you’d prefer. If there’s a just two or three of you then it will seem quite expensive but for groups of 6 or more it will feel like a bargain. Fast comfortable speedboats will cost from THB 25,000 per day. If you want something luxurious then we can arrange fast yachts that vary in price from THB 65,000 to super luxurious THB 400,000. a slower but classy yacht starts from THB 29,000

Some of the dive sites there are absolute mecca's for Black Tips, and another one of our favourite dive sites, 'Turtle Rock' is a home for hungry Hawksbills, many of them very unperturbed by divers so they make for great muses for photo [...]

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 [...]

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.

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 [...]

Phuket is not well known for wreck diving but we do have a few and some are very good. In one bay at Racha Yai we have 5! Ok, we're using the term wreck a little cheaply for a couple of them but they were boats and now they're on the ocean floor so it's a wreck. Our premier wreck for diving in Phuket. It's the oldest of our recreational diving wrecks and very much worth a visit for all experienced divers. The bottom of the wreck is ove [...]
