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!

Location Dives Price
Phi Phi Island + 3 3,700 THB ^
King Cruiser Wreck 3 3,700 THB ^
Racha Yai, Racha Noi 3 3,700 THB ^

^ If you need to rent scuba equipment there will be an additional charge 500 THB for a full set.
+ In April 2015 a National Marine Park fee was introduced for the Phi Phi Island scuba diving day trips. To date this hasn't been collected by park officials. Please bring THB 600 in cash with you, just in case the park officials decide to collect it on the day.

All of our day trip tours include breakfast, lunch, snacks, pancakes, fruit, juice, water, tea, coffee and more, all inclusive in the day trip price. Beer and soft drinks are available for purchase on the boat. Please remember to bring some money with you on the day for tipping your guides and the boat crew and for beers and soft drink at the end of the day!

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.

Phuket Critter Diving – Great At The Moment

Phuket Liveaboard In The Similan Islands The Archives

What Is A Phuket Liveaboard Safari?

The best diving in Phuket and Thailand for that matter is inside the Similan and Surin Island National Parks and the most efficient and cost effective way to dive these fantastic locations is on-board one of the many liveaboard safari boats that run trips from mid October to May. It's essentially a floating hotel that supplies everything you need for the trip. Once you step on-board the first evening of the trip apart from a couple of beach visits you wont set foot on dry land again until the end of the trip which is usually 4 days later. You'll be allocated a cabin for the duration of the trip w [...]
