Fun Diving In Phuket With Local Dive Thailand
Phuket diving is always fun, 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. On one of our day trip diving tours you can do up to 3 fun dives that day so in this case it would be 2 at Phi Phi and one on the return journey home at Shark Point.
Although we’re a PADI 5* dive center, divers from any agency – SSI, TDI, CMAS, BSAC etc are most welcome to join any trip. We even have special deals for people wishing to do multiple day trip tours. You can see the full range of dive sites Phuket has to offer with our expert local guides!
|Phi Phi Island +||3||3,900 THB ^|
|King Cruiser Wreck||3||3,900 THB ^|
|Racha Noi/Racha Yai||3||3,900 THB ^|
^ If you need to rent scuba equipment there will be an additional charge 300 THB for a full set.
*Please note that there is National Park Fee of THB 600 (foreign nationals), THB 240 (Thai Nationals) for the Phi Phi day only. For snorkelers the fee is THB 400 & THB 40 respectively
*Price includes diving insurance but it's always better to have your own. Do you have adequate scuba diving travel insurance?
All of our fun diving in Phuket day trip tours include: 3 dives, guide, tanks, weights, weight belts, breakfast, lunch, snacks, fruit, water, tea, coffee and soft drinks. Beer is available for purchase on the boat but only after the last dive. If you choose the Phi Phi diving tour, there is a THB 600 fee for entrance into the national park.

The Diving Itinerary & Dive Sites
Our day trip fun diving in Phuket tours are all 3 dive days. The only exception to this is extremely bad weather, mechanical breakdown or a medical emergency. All are rare in Phuket, so assume you will complete all dives on one of our tours. That said, the dives are completely optional. So you are not required if you are fun diving to do all the dives. You may pick and choose depending on how you are feeling. An example of a normal days Itinerary is below.
|07:00-08:00 AM||Pick up from your hotel or meet at Rawai Office|
|08:30 AM||Departure from Chalong pier|
|09:00 AM||Breakfast buffet|
|10:45 AM||Dive #1|
|12:00 PM||Lunch and Relaxing|
|01:00 PM||Dive #2|
|02:00 PM||Relaxing & Snack, fresh fruit|
|03:00 PM||Dive #3|
|04:00 PM||Pancake, fresh fruit & Departure from the Island|
|05:30 - 06:30 PM||Arrival at the pier|
|06:00 - 07:00 PM||Arrive at your hotel|
Occasionally the dive sites may change at the discretion of the tour leader. He or She will decide based on currents, weather conditions and customer requirements the best dive sites to do that day.
For example the Phi Phi Island day trip tour, we do two dives at Phi Phi, maybe Turtle Rock & Koh Bida Nok are planned. If upon arrival there are 5 other dive boats at Turtle Rock, the tour leader may move the dive site to Palong Wall for safety and enjoy-ability of the dive. Then onto Koh Bida Nok, and on the way back Shark Point. Changes in the day trips dive sites are rare, but can happen so please be considerate and understanding that this was done with the best intentions.

Why Get Certified
Certified scuba divers enjoy lower prices for day trip diving and fun diving than those doing a Discover Scuba Dive or a PADI course. This holds true all over the world, not just in Phuket or Thailand, it's a rather good reason to get certified if you are not already, or to improve your certification level, allowing you to dive deeper and potentially for longer!
If you are not a certified scuba diver, you have some options, you can do a Discover Scuba Dive as an introduction to the underwater world and to see if you enjoy diving, or you can do your PADI Open Water certification and become a certified diver.Contact Us
