Fun Diving Phuket With Local Dive Thailand

Diving In Phuket With Local Dive Thailand

Diving in Phuket is always fun, we are simply referring to any dive that is not a training dive although they’re mostly fun too! 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 two at Phi Phi and one on the 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!

Our dive sites around Phuket are incredibly diverse in both marine life and topography. Reeks, wrecks, wall dives, huge boulders and sandy areas make sure there something for everybody at every level.

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.

Safety First

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.

Getting To The Pier

If you are diving with us on one of our day trip tours, we will pick you up and take you to the pier, where you will meet your dive guide and be taken to the boat. This is a free service for customers in certain areas of Phuket, if you are outside the free areas there will be a surcharge for pickup, we have included the pick up times and locations below.

Why Get Certified

diving is always fun with local dive thailand

diving is always fun with 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 plenty of 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

We have hope that’s perfectly clear for you and hope to welcome you onboard for a fun days diving in Phuket. If you have any more questions then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
