Our Dives

Scuba diving is a magical sport though it can be extremely hard to explain to non divers why we and our customers love it so much. So we thought, “Hey, how can we show people”, divers or not, the majesty of the underwater world here in Phuket. So we created the ‘Our Dives’ community section, where our instructors post stories, photos & videos from their dives with our customers, fore-ever immortalizing their day as a true Aussie Diver and showcasing the wonderful underwater world we have here to enjoy in Thailand!

Phuket Scuba Diving – Wet Monsoon Months – Low Season
