Phuket Diving Day Trips
Phuket has a huge variety of dive sites within reach of a day trip and there’s something for everyone. From the easy relaxed reefs at Racha Yai to the King Cruiser Wreck and the soft corals at Shark Point, you’ll find every dive offers something different. We work with several boats and thus can easily tailor make a package for you with all the best dive sites whenever you want to go. Below you’ll find links to schedules and prices for various Phuket day trip diving boats. We work with various Phuket boat operators to ensure we can offer just about any dive site on any day. Please take a look at your options and contact us with your day trip wish list! Local day trips run year round from Phuket, though schedules may change slightly during the year.
Phuket Dive Tour Packages
We have prepared some ready made day trip diving packages for you diving at all the best available sites from Phuket. The following packages are available November – April during the high season when all dive sites including the Similan islands are possible. In low season (May – October) all local dive sites are still dived daily but the Similan islands are closed and local boat schedules may vary. Packages are flexible – you can start any day and have days in between dives as you wish. Packages are discounted from the full price. You are welcome to choose a custom itinerary and we will make a package price for you. All prices below exclude equipment rental and any applicable national park fees. All trips have free hotel transfers from Patong, Karon or Kata beach areas in Phuket. All trips include breakfast, lunch, drinking water, coffee, tea. Diving is in small groups. Sometimes you will dive with a diveguide who works directly for the boat operator. If you book 2 or more people we will often be able send our own dive guide, except for Similan day trips where all diving is led by divemasters who work directly for the Similan day trip operator unless you wish to pay extra for a separate divemaster – this is due to the expense and logistics of Similan day trips. If you book as a single diver and want 1 : 1 guiding this is available at an extra fee.

Please note – if you are already in Phuket and want to do some day trip diving, please do call us (+66 84 626 4646) or visit our shop at Karon beach for booking. Yes, we answer email / web enquiries quite fast, but for last minute booking, better to see us in person!
Phuket Diving Day Trip Schedules
If you want to choose your own package you can check details of all the day trip options on different boats here. We are happy to take bookings for multi day packages or single days diving. If you’re booking a liveaboard and want a bit more diving, a day trip or two is a great option as an add on. You may also want to check our overnight or 2 night trips. A great compromise if you want a longer trip, but don’t want a longer liveaboard.
See below for the different day trip dive tours from Phuket. You can pick and choose and make your own package, or combine day trips with overnight trips. There’s plenty of choice! Best idea … ask us! Just send us an enquiry telling us how many days you want to dive, give us an idea of your dive qualifications, whether you will need to rent gear, whether you want day trips only, or maybe an overnight and/or short liveaboard … and we’ll suggest an itinerary to fit your dates! Note – Similan Islands trips are only from mid October to early May.

Similan Islands Day Trips
The Similan Islands are just about within reach of a day trip from Phuket or Khao Lak. The Similans offer so many dive site options that a day trip gives you a mere sniff of what’s possible. If you have time, a liveaboard is a very good idea to get the best out of the best diving in Thailand. Most liveaboards run trips of about 4 days to the Similan islands. If you have less time, the South Siam liveaboard offers overnight stays or 2 night trips that are good value. But, if one day is all you have, day trips are possible to the Similan islands National Park. Note that it’s a long trip from Phuket and a higher price than the local day trips.
