The Best Diving in Phuket Thailand

The Best Diving in Phuket Thailand

Sunrise Divers has been based here at Karon Beach, Phuket since 1999. We offer all the best diving options from Phuket including 1 day trips, PADI dive courses (we are a PADI 5 star dive shop), overnight trips and longer liveaboards from 3 – 6 days to the Similan Islands and Richelieu Rock. In high season, a liveaboard is the best way to dive, but of course not everyone has time for such a trip, so maybe you’d want a couple of day trips for diving from Phuket. Or maybe you need a refresher or want to take a dive course. We can help!

Liveaboards depart from Phuket or Khao Lak to the Similan islands and Richelieu Rock, and there are also some trips into the Mergui Archipelago in Myanmar. We offer the best liveaboards in all price ranges from backpacker style to luxury cruises.

Day trips run year round to Phi Phi, the Racha Islands and the King Cruiser Wreck. Racha Yai island is good for a first time dive, or an easy refresher. Racha Noi is good for all levels of diver, Phi Phi too. The King Cruiser is a more advanced dive. We can book single day trips or packages for you.

We hope to see you here! Please do contact Sunrise Divers for all your Phuket diving!
