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 so 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 in Phuket 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 fun diving in Phuket 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 optionalso 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

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. 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.

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.

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.

Racha Noi South Tip

Quite honestly we wish we could get to Racha Noi South Tip every trip but the converging currents from either side of Racha Noi make it a challenging dive even on weak tides. Only once or twice a month the current is low enough for us to get there but it's a real treat when we can. Even the guides are queuing up for this trip! The dive site consists of a series of huge granite boulders that have been washed smooth by the strong currents. C [...]

All cabins are air-conditioned and en-suite however you do share the bathroom with the room next door, there's access from both rooms and you just have to lock the opposing door to make sure nob [...]

Our day trip to the King Cruiser wreck is one of the most popular on the Phuket diving scene, it's even more enjoyable if you dive with Enriched Air Nitrox. The depth of the wreck 18 - 32m can make it a short dive on normal air tanks but with Nitrox you can easily make a full 50 minutes as long as your air consumption allows. With this is mind we decided to invest in a Nitrox membrane system, allowing divers to chose on the day if they wou [...]

How Do I Avoid Seasickness?

Fortunately throughout the Phuket diving high season we're blessed with generally flat seas. Around the beginning of May we start to get a swell come in from the open ocean. Although for most this has little impact on your dive day, for those who get seasick it can be horrible but there are ways to avoid it. Not going to go too far into the science but essentially your brain is being confused. With intentional movement (walking, runnin [...]
