Detailed Descriptions Of Our Most Popular Phuket Diving Sites

Choosing the perfect Phuket diving sites 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. You can dive in Phuket all year so use this guide to find the right one for 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. More experienced divers will enjoy the healthy coral at depth and some small but interesting wrecks. We do occasionally get magnificent manta rays at Racha Noi, will you be the lucky one?

The Phi Phi Islands have some stunning dive sites that are generally very easy. Marine life is prolific and corals are healthy. Turtles, black tip reef sharks and huge schools of snapper are all very common sightings. Above water the scenery is amazing so your surface interval is one to remember.

The King Cruiser trip is a day for the more experienced divers and what a day it is! An amazing mix of reef, wreck and wall teeming with life. Not common by all means but this definitely the trip that gets the most whale shark sightings.

Aqualung i450T Dive Computer

Having used the same computer brand for nearly 20 years, it was hard to jump ship from something that had only occasionally let me down. Especially to a brand that is although well trusted in the other diving equipment would be their first foray into the dive computer market. So enticed by a great deal and free in house quick and efficient repairs I decided to take a chance. The Aqualung i450T certainly looks the part, a sleek design a [...]

Where Can I Snorkel In Phuket?

The best places to snorkel in Phuket are all found around the west coast beaches. At most you won't see much more than sand and the occasional crab so head a little south. The southern end of Phuket is much less populated than Patong and you can still find some coral reefs just offshore. The best option is to join us on our dive boat to Phi Phi or Racha Noi for a great snorkelling tour with exceptionally professional snorkel guides.. If that' [...]

phuket dive boat mv kepsub News & Updates

Shipyard Complete!

At least once every year our trusty Phuket dive boat MV Kepsub will be unceremoniously hauled out of the water and into the dry dock in Phuket Town for a 3 week overhaul. It's a nice break for our hard working boat crew and office staff but a bit of a nightmare for the owners. Well just about everything, the entire boat will be inspected for any problems and new features added. There's generally quite a few bodies clambering around bot [...]
