Kata Beach – Single Beach Dive – October to May only

In the past Kata Beach has been relatively ignored as a serious dive site for experienced / certified divers.

However as of through late 2017 and early 2018 there has been an explosion in marine life there and it has now become a relatively nice and unique dive for divers are looking for something different.

Please be aware that this is a shallow dive site and visibility is not always the best. Dives are best planned around high or slack tide when the water movement is the least and visibility is higher. Slack high tide is the optimal time.

The dive at times can provide a range of unique creatures that are not normally found at other dive sites in the area. The site has a resident mimmic octopus, rare rays, sea moths, snake eels, sea horses, cuttle fish, some nice reef fish, pelagic fish, squid, the odd turtle and is you are very lucky a reef shark.

There has also been a fantastic selection of the popular macro photographers favourite, the nudibranch. This has had our instructors flocking with their cameras even on their day off.

If you like taking you time and doing a slightly longer dive or enjoy underwater photography this could be an appealing dive.

Kata Beach is about 20 minutes drive from the popular holiday spot of Patong and about 10 minutes from the the main scuba diving boat harbour of Chalong. It easy reach to most of the island.

The dive is as easy as it gets n the diving world. The maximum depth is about 10 metres however a lot of the coral is only metres from the surface. It is void of currents however at times it can get some strong surge. It is definitely best dived at slack high or slack low tides. Outside of high and low tide the visibility can be poor.

Do I Need to Know How To Swim to Scuba Dive?

This is a question that I often get asked, and really it is not as simple as YES or NO. If you want to become a certified scuba diver by doing the PADI Open Water Diver Course then the answer is yes. In the PADI Open Water Diver Course it is specified that you have to be able to swim 200 metres with any stroke and also have to be able to tread water or float for at least 10 minutes. The reason for this is not for the fact that scuba diving requires you to swim, but rather it is for yours and your groups safety. In the unlikely event that your BCD (Buoyancy Control Device) was to falter then there would be no device to keep you afloat [...]

Travel Times in Phuket to Chalong Pier

Phuket Island is a lot larger than most new visitors believe. It is around 50km in length and about 12km in width. It takes in about 576 square kilometres of land. The island is also a lot busier than some new travelers expect. Official reports have the local population at almost 400,000 however some unofficial reports say that there could be up to 1 million people on the island at any one time. The large number of locals and visitors on the island and the long travel distances creates quite dense traffic conditions and at times can hamper travel times making them a lot longer than expected.
