Detailed Descriptions Of Our Most Popular Phuket Diving Sites

Choosing the perfect Phuket scuba diving site can be a little daunting so let us help! We have wrecks, reefs and walls that support a huge diversity of marine flora and fauna that will keep most divers happy but make sure you pick the site that fits you.

The clear waters at the Racha Islands are perfect for divers who haven’t got wet for a while and will help beginners gain some confidence. The Phi Phi Islands have some stunning dive sites that are generally very easy although we can get days when the visibility isn’t fantastic and the King Cruiser day is definitely only for Advanced Open Water divers and above.

Our wildlife does have a bad habit of moving around so nothing can be guaranteed but at Phi Phi sharks and turtles are common sightings and Racha Noi gives you the best chance of manta ray sightings although you’ll have to be lucky. The King Cruiser cluster is rich in diversity and where we get the most leopard and whale shark encounters.

Aqualung Regulators At Our Phuket Dive Centre Equipment We Like

A Simple Upgrade That Can Save You $$$!

I'm sure most divers at some stage have rinsed their regulator off after a days diving and forgotten to put the dust cap in place - why it's called a dust cap is a bit of a mystery, it's main purpose is to keep moisture out of your first stage and maybe calling it something more appropriate might trigger good habits in new divers. The auto closure device (ACD) on Aqualung systems has been around for a while but getting it fitted now in the long run can save money and reduce the risk of failure for the more forgetful/lazy divers amongst us. If you've let clean fresh water into your first stage then simply letting it dry before you use it again should avert any problems but if y [...]

Phuket Diving Site - Shark Point Amazing Local Dives

A Different Look For Mondays

Local Dive Thailand now runs a day trip to Shark Point, Anemone Reef and Koh Doc Mai every Monday. These three great dive sites are regular features on the diving trips in Phuket but rarely all on the same day and Anemone Reef is often skipped in favour of the more popular Shark Point. So we've had a little change to our schedule to make sure all certified divers have a chance of visiting this trio of great dive sites. The only opportunity to visit at least two of these outstanding dive sites in one day was as part of the King Cruiser day trip but this means that divers only qualified to dive 18m had to skip one dive or as is more often the case not join the trip at all. So taking [...]
