Local Dive Thailand Shop Now In Patong

Local Dive Thailand Shop Now In Patong

Visit Our new Dive Shop In Patong

Patong remains the busiest beach resort in Phuket. Many of our dive guests choose to stay in this popular area of the island. We’ve now opened a shop on the beach front, divers can now drop by and meet Simon to finalise their diving plans.

*Unfortunately we’ve had to temporarily close our dive shop in Patong on the beach road. You can contact our main Rawai office via telephone or email. If you’re in Patong and would like to speak to us face to face, visit Nan at the Nice Hotel.

It’s only a small shop but it’s in a very convenient location. Sandwiched between a Starbucks and McDonalds just outside the Baanthai Beach Resort on Beach Rd. Just a stones throw from the famous/infamous Bangla Rd party strip. Our main office and centre of operations remains in close proximity to the boat departure point at Chalong.

All transfers from Patong for fun divers and students are included in our prices. So if you want to stay close to the amenities at Patong but still enjoy your scuba diving, it won’t cost you any extra and now you have the option to speak to our team in person or even settle your bill before stepping on-board MV Kebsup.

By Justin Hartrey

I've been enjoying the incredible marine life in our oceans for over 25 years. 13 years ago I became a PADI professional, hoping to introduce as many people as possible to the incredible beauty of the seas.

Having been fortunate enough to dive all over south east and especially Thailand, I enjoy sharing my experience and passion on this blog.

Thailand Liveaboard SY Diva Andaman

SY Diva Andaman

This oppulent sailing yacht offers a very different experience from the other liveaboards cruising Myanmar and the Mergui Archipelago. Champagne, bathrobes, table service and great cabins give the feel of floating boutique hotel. You half expect a butler offering refreshments to appear during the dives... Two onboard wine cellars, an excellent chef (not to be confused with a cook) serving gourmet food and even bathrobes set the tone for th [...]

When Will Thailand Reopen For Tourists?

For short term tourists, we simply don't know when Thailand will reopen for tourists. The various tourist associations on Phuket do have a plan to privately vaccinate the tourist workers. The plan will hopefully enable vaccinated tourists to arrive on the island in October 2021. However this has yet to be approved by the government but we have our fingers firmly crossed. *Update: Phuket has been chosen for what the government are calling t [...]

Titan Triggerfish – Phuket Diving Guides Nemesis

The titan triggerfish in Phuket are not going to win any modelling contracts but they can add a little excitement to a dive. A head that's 2/3rds of its body mass, independently moving weird googly eyes and a set of teeth that wouldn't look out of place on a hyena. Along with an attitude that can only be described as cantankerous They're a very prominent fish on Phuket's reefs. Signs of their activities are everywhere. Deep excavations in [...]
