The Pearl of the Andaman Sea
The largest of Thailand’s islands, Phuket is a heady mix of bustling bars, night spots, restaurants and truly spectacular dive locations.
Phuket is Thailand’s largest island, located 900 km South of Bangkok in the Andaman Sea. The majority of Phuket’s tourism can be found along the West coast beaches of Patong, Karon and Kata, where you’ll find bustling bars, restaurants, custom tailors and a variety of very affordable shopping.
For your enjoyment and safety underwater, we operate a ‘four divers to one guide’ ratio at all times when you join one of our guided groups. You and a buddy can always discover our beautiful dive sites on your own after a thorough briefing.
Phuket’s dive sites average between 18 – 30m in depth and offer easy to medium diving levels. Drop-offs, small caves and wrecks are present as well as amazing rock formations and coral gardens. The maritime life of the Andaman Sea is hugely diversive, and offers, amongst many tropical fish, rare species such as sea horses and Ghost Pipefish. Leopard sharks are frequent companions during our dives and from time-to-time Manta Rays can be seen in flight.
The dive sites in the Similan and Surin Islands are in general slightly deeper and the fantastic visibility of usually not less than 30m is captivating. These dive spots are suitable for all diving levels and offer a wide variety of marine life, including Coral fish, barracuda and sharks. During February and May, Manta Rays and Whale Sharks can even make an appearance.
