Day Trip Diving In Thailand

When scuba diving in Phuket you'll be embarking on what is referred to as 'Day Trip Scuba Diving', day trips will take you to one or many of the Islands around Phuket that house our outstanding reefs & wrecks. Because these Islands are typically one to two hours from the mainland by boat it works out much better if you do multiple dives while you are out there. Day trip diving here in Thailand will usually see you doing two or three dives per day, which is awesome because you get to see a multitude of different dive sites, marine life and scenery for a relatively low price, plus we get you back home in time for dinner.

Day trip diving is suitable for divers of all levels, whether experienced, new, or total beginners, including Discover Scuba Divers, we have many options for day trip divers, including Phi Phi Island, Racha Noi & Racha Yai and the King Cruiser Wreck. Basically it is just a matter of deciding which day trip and dive sites best suit your level of diving comfort and then contact Aussie Divers to book it.
