Diving in Phuket Thailand

Diving in Phuket Thailand

Sunrise Divers has been based here at Karon Beach, Phuket since 1999. We offer all the best Phuket Thailand diving options from Phuket and Khao Lak, including day trips, SSI & PADI dive courses (we are a SSI training center), Similan overnight trips and longer liveaboards from 3 – 6 days to the Similan, Surin Islands and Richelieu Rock. During our high season from mid-October to mid-May, 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. Check our Phuket dive trip price list for prices and check our Reviews!

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