See Exactly What Scuba Diving In Phuket, Thailand Is Really Like

Aussie Divers Phuket offers the best choice of scuba diving and day trip adventures. We do not own our own boat, preferring to use charter boats which allows you to have a greater choice of destinations and greater flexibility for your scheduling. Most day trip boats leave from Chalong Pier which is to the south of the island and is about 25 minute minibus ride from Patong. Day trips are usually conducted in one of two directions, Racha Yai and Racha Noi to the south and Koh Doc Mai (KDM), Shark Point (SP) , Anemone Reef (AR), King Cruiser (KC) and the Phi Phi Islands to the east.

The most common day boat is the traditional style dive boats which can accommodate anywhere between 20 and 60 divers. They are often preferred given their size, allowing room to move, relax and or sleep if you choose. All provide breakfast and most have freshly cooked lunch. All provide tea, coffee, water and soft drinks and most have beer for the trip home. All have western style toilets, showers and a number have an air conditioned salons.

Day Trip Diving Options

Here in Phuket we do multiple dives each day from the dive boats, these are referred to as Day Trips.

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 [...]
