The King Cruiser Wreck

Unfortunately the intrepid captain's wanderlust resulted in a large hole in the ferry and the inevitable consequences. So was created Phuket's first wreck dive. Fortunately no lives were lost, all 500+ passengers were quickly rescued by the Thai navy and some passing fishing boats. Theories abound to how this 'accident' came to pass. These include insurance fraud due to the owners financial difficulties, alcohol and even that the local dive operators clubbed together [...]

Phuket Snorkelling With Local Dive Thailand Phuket Sights & Fun

Snorkelling Tours In Phuket

Snorkelling in Phuket can be a bit of a gamble but although Local Dive Thailand primarily looks after Phuket scuba divers we also offer a great service for non-divers and free divers. If we have snorkelers on the boat, usually they're accompanying a certified diver family member or friend, it's a great solution to keeping the whole group together rather than the diver going off for a trip alone. Generally a dedicated snorkelling tour in Phuket involves being loaded on a cramped speedboat with up to thirty other passengers. Sure you'll get to your destination faster but the whole trip will be spent staring at the person opposite you, if you're lucky they'll be at least aesthetically pl [...]
