Southern Andamans Liveaboards Adventures – Try Somewhere Different

There are a small number of liveaboard boats that head to a small but stunning group of dive sites situated in the south of the Andaman Sea. These liveaboards are usually short term and no more that two or three days. Some take in dive sites like Phi Phi or Shark Point on the way there or on the way back.

The dive sites of Koh Haa (5 Islands), Hin Muang (Purple Rock) and Hin Daeng (Red Rock) are to this day only accessible by these liveaboard vessels and there are currently no day trips out of Phuket to any of the dive sites.

Hin Muang and Hin Daeng are no strangers to the classic favourites of the manta rays and whale sharks and Koh Haa providing a visually stunning spectacle for divers above and below the water. These dive sites would make for alternative to the common liveaboard destinations of northern Andamans.

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.
