Kata Beach – Single Beach Dive – October to May only

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

Since late 2017 and early 2018, and recently with the low tourist numbers over the covid-19 period, there has been an explosion in marine life found whilst scuba diving the Kata house reef. The Kata dive site has now become a relatively nice and unique dive for divers who are looking for something different and easily accessible.

Please be aware that the Kata house reef 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. If your planning a single dive then an hour or so before the slack high tide is the optimal time.

Scuba diving at Kata beach can at times provide a range of unique creatures that are not normally found at other dive sites in Phuket. 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.

This is a question that I often get asked, and really it is not as simple as YES or NO. Here is some explanations and reasons why. If you want to become a certified scuba diver by doing the PADI Open Water Diver Course, the answer is yes.

You also have to be able to tread water or float for at least 10 minut [...]
