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.
