Scuba Diving Phuket - Day Trip Schedule/Price

As well as having great beaches, wonderful culture and superb restaurants, Phuket also has world class diving within easy reach. The dive destinations on a Phuket diving trip vary greatly with hard corals, soft corals, massive granite boulders plus an amazing variety of fishes. As well as the usual reef fishes such as colourful parrotfish, moorish idols and pufferfish there are also large schools of snappers and barracudas, exquisite lionfish, and even a chance of larger species such as a turtle, rays or harmless reef sharks.

To visit the dive destinations on offer requires taking a boat journey with the closest areas about 1 1/2 hours away from the Phuket mainland. The furthest place is diving Phi Phi islands, almost 3 hours away. Because of this, all the dive trips are a full day out. Transfers to the departure pier are provided free of charge from hotels in the major tourist areas such as Patong. To ensure comfortable days out the dive boats are large and spacious with international safety standards to ensure your safety. In true Thai style, divers are well-fed throughout the day with fantastic freshly-cooked food on board.

Dive Times

Maximum dive times are 50 minutes per dive. We would like to offer longer times (we would like more time underwater too). Unfortunately, because of the journey times, if we offered longer dives the boats would get back to the departure pier very late in the evenings. However, we will always try to do full dive times (air and no decompression limits permitting). We never cut dives short except for safety reasons.
