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 and on one of our day trip diving tours can do up to 3 fun dives that day, in this case it would be 2 at Phi Phi and one on the return journey home at Shark Point or Anemone Reef, depending on conditions.

So if you are already a certified diver, PADI, SSI, TDI or other agency, you are welcome and encouraged to come fun diving with Local Dive Thailand on one, or all of our scuba diving day trip tours listed below. We even have special deals for people wishing to do multiple day trip tours and see the full range of dive sites Phuket has to offer with our expert local guides!

The Diving Itinerary & Dive Sites

All of our day trip diving tours are 3 dive days. The only exception to this is extremely bad weather or a medical emergency, in Phuket, both of these are rare, so assume you will do three dives on one of our tours. That said, the dives are completely optional, 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.

Time Activity
07:00-08:00 AM Pick up from your hotel
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

Also please be aware that all dive sites and locations are chosen by and are at the full discretion of the day trips ‘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 but 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

PADI Course being taught on the M/V Kepsub - Local Dive thailand

PADI Course being taught on the M/V Kepsub - Local Dive thailand

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.

Diving With The Olympus TG5 Equipment We Like

Olympus TG 5 Underwater Review

Local Dive Thailand had a bit of a break from Phuket diving and took the new Olympus TG 5 for a trip to Komodo, plenty of upgrades and new features to be tried out. Should have brought the manual really... A gentle macro dive to start the trip, the macro capabilities of the TG series has always been great for a compact and this still remains the same. If your not a smartarse and read the manual you'll find out that the flash in the TG5 can now be adjusted manually. Full power is extremely bright, the first nudi I took a photo of ignited... after a brief play with settings available from the easily accessible menu it was business as usual.

Diving WIth Alien In Phuket Rare & Peculiar Critters

Diving With Aliens

Ridley Scott's alien monster has had people hiding behind the couch for over 30 years but in Phuket we scuba dive everyday with an animal that has the same fearsome set of double jaws, luckily the penchant for snacking on humans isn't also emulated. All bony fish have a set of pharyngeal teeth in their throat but moray eels have a complete pharyngeal second jaw that they can launch forward and use to swallow their unfortunate victims. Considering it's such a common animal you'll be surprised to find out that this alien like feature was only discovered in 2007. The second jaw is lined with backward facing curved teeth that gives it's prey no chance of escape, maybe [...]
