Snorkelling In Phuket With Local Dive Thailand

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 pleasing to look at if you’re unlucky they could start projectile vomiting as soon as you hit the first wave.

We’re travelling with small children who are just learning their way around open water. We had a professional guide attending every detail of our day. Boat was very spacious. Kids loved the bean bags to sleep on during transfers. Bigger boat is more suitable for smaller kids that would not necessarily like the noise and bumpy ride of the speedboats. Food & crew was great. Thanks also for saving my fin which I dropped from the boat by accident!Janne Hietala

What you can be sure of is that you won’t get an opportunity to witness the beautiful scenery or soak up the sun on your journey to the islands. On our boats it’s very different, you’ll get a nice relaxing journey to the snorkelling site. On the way you’ll be able to walk around the boat, have some breakfast, talk to your friends, lay out on the shaded outdoor area or on the top sun deck. We also have a generous indoor saloon on the lower deck and a small saloon on the middle deck for those who would rather sit inside. we have clean western style toilets that have been fitted with environmentally friendly septic tanks so that no waste goes on the dive sites, if you’ve ever tried using a toilet on a speedboat you’ll really appreciate this feature. We also have fresh water showers to hose of the salt water and a full medical kit with trained staff to assist in the unlikely event of an emergency.

Diving And Snorkelling Are Easy Both Easy From Our Phuket Boats

Diving And Snorkelling Are Easy Both Easy From Our Phuket Boats

When you get to the snorkelling site there will be a full safety brief, tips on making snorkelling easier, information on the marine life that you might see, and most importantly how to snorkel responsibly without damaging the marine environment or your good self. All conducted by a guide whose at least PADI Rescue Diver qualified. If you’re not a confident swimmer then you’re welcome to use a life jacket and our guide will accompany you all the way with a surface marker buoy and a safety flotation device. The more experienced and free divers can go off on your own but there will always be a member of our crew looking out for you.

In between locations there’ll be delicious food prepared by our on-board cook, and free flow of water, tea and coffee. Again you can find a spot to relax on our spacious boat and talk to your guide about the animals you’ve seen. On the way home, lay back and enjoy a cold beer or soft drink and enjoy the sedate cruise back to the pier.

Nitrox Tanks Ready To Use The Archives

Why Do Scuba Divers Use Nitrox?

Nitrox or Enriched Air Nitrox to give it's full name is the most popular PADI speciality course that we teach and for good reason. It's relatively cheap, can be done in one day, straight forward and really is beneficial to the diver. Excessive absorption of nitrogen into our body tissues is the factor that limits a divers time underwater. So by simply putting more oxygen into our scuba tank, therefor reducing the amount of nitrogen we [...]
