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.

Similan Private Charter With Manta Queen 6

You won't have lots of room but you'll still visit the very best dive sites that Thailand has to offer. All cabins are air-conditioned and en-suite however you do share the bathroom with the room next door, there's access from both rooms and you [...]

How Much Does Scuba Diving In Thailand Cost

The cost of scuba diving in Thailand will vary depending on location, type of dive centre and in some respects yourself. Phuket probably offers the best all round diving in Thailand but it's also amongst the most expensive. It's not simply that we think you should pay more for better diving, simply down to logistics. Apart from a few really nice beach dives, most of our recognised dive sites are over an hour journey from port. You'll find [...]
