Phuket Thailand Dive Information

Situated 8 degrees north of the Equator, Phuket's warm tropical climate is tempered by cool easterly breezes from November to April, and by fresh westerly monsoon winds in summer months. Phuket Weather is good for scuba diving and liveaboards almost the whole year, but is better from November to May, with plenty of sunshine. Divers can expect a few wet and windy days during May - October, but it's normally quite sunny. The low summer holiday season can actually be a great time to go diving in Phuket, since you find less divers under water, and much lower hotel prices.

Phuket is the largest island in Thailand and well known as a tourism and diving destination. Just a short hop by jet from Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur or Singapore, and with daily connections to most major Asian cities, Phuket is ideally situated for a short Thailand diving vacation or a relaxing holiday. Time is GMT +7 hours, 1 hour behind Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia.

The Andaman Sea, separated from the Bay of Bengal by the Andaman-Nicobar Ridge, is part of the Indian Ocean. Thailand's Andaman coast extends for 870 km from the Surin Islands on Thailand's border with Burma to Tarutao National Park (setting of bordering Malaysia. Hundreds of islands are reached by boat from Phuket, many of them uninhabited and fringed with spectacular coral reefs. To see the real Thailand, get off the beaten track. You often won't find even a footprint on the beach.

Phuket is the center of all this beauty. From here we can arrange for you Diving Courses, an amazing Thailand Liveaboard Dive Safari or a variety of adventure tours. The Similan Islands national marine park, to the Northwest of Phuket, is one of the best scuba diving destinations in the world. Thailand Liveaboards, Phuket Day Trips and Overnight Tours are all available. Diving liveaboards into the remote Mergui Archipelago in Myanmar (Burma) are also becoming more popular.

Best of Thailand

The spectacular rock formations of Koh Phi Phi and Krabi are easily reached by dive boat or local ferry. The limestone karsts of Phang Nga bay should not be missed (including the famous James Bond Island), and are best seen on a kayak tour through the mangroves, or by hiring your own charter boat. A couple of hours North is Khao Sok National Park where jungle treks can be arranged. Islands close to Phuket, such as Koh Racha Yai, provide excellent local diving and great snorkeling in clear blue waters. Whether you are scuba diving, snorkeling, exploring or just relaxing and watching the sunset, you can find everything here in Phuket.

The West coast of Phuket island has some of the best beaches to be found anywhere in the world and during the sunny and dry November - May season, the water is calm, clear and warm. Each beach has its own style and distinctive points of interest. Some, like Patong, are hot spots for nightlife and dining, while others like Nai Yang and Nai Harn are quiet havens away from the bars and crowds. In between there are delightful places like Karon Beach that offer a balance of peaceful relaxation within close vicinity to all the fun and activity you could want.

The fringing coral reefs of the Phuket area include some of the best in the world and are home to over 100 reef fish species. There are more than 200 species of hard corals playing their part in building this incredible underwater ecosystem, and an undetermined number of soft coral species. Hundreds of species of pelagic (open water) fish find their home in the rich waters of Thailand, including Manta rays and the majestic Whaleshark. Best season for whale sharks is March - May, at dive sites such as Hin Daeng and Richelieu Rock, best reached by Thailand diving liveaboards from Phuket. The variety and abundance of reef fish in the Andaman Sea can sometimes be quite breathtaking.

Thailand is home to four species of Sea Turtle - green turtles, hawksbill, leatherback and olive ridleys, and there are turtle nesting sites in this area. Turtle releases take place every year around Songkran. Dolphins are often sighted by Thailand divers on liveaboards in the Similan Islands, Burma and close to Phuket, and there have even been encounters with killer whales (Orcas) and larger whales. The underwater reefs of the Andaman Sea in Thailand and Burma are a natural treasure that we can all help to preserve. We hope to see you for some fun sun scuba diving in Thailand soon.
