Scuba Diving in Phuket
So you have arrived to Phuket as a part Sandbox opening and what you can do. Although there are a lot of activities that are still closed, scuba diving in Phuket is up and running.
Scuba Diving is a family activity and can be by anyone over the age of 10 years and is enjoyed by adults well into their 60’s and 70’s.
Phuket is a world renowned scuba diving destination. Her clear warm waters make attract divers from all over the world.
Our tropical tempered water make our diving suitable for the first time diver through to the most experienced of divers. If you have never scuba dived previously, Phuket is a seriously good place to start and Aussie Divers is a seriously good SHA approved dive centre.

Racha Ya and Racha Noi
Loosely translated, Racha is the Thai word for “King”, Yai translates to “Big” and Noi to “Little”. So we have the Big King and Little King Islands.
The islands will provide the best scuba diving allowable for those who are restricted to the Sandbox regulations.
Their waters are generally clear and there is an abundance of marine life to see there and Racha Yai is also the home of the Harruby Wreck.
The has some wonderful marine life including the docile and lovable Leopard Sharks, turtles, stingrays, octopus, eels, cuttlefish, some beautiful reef fish and barracuda.
f you are very lucky you may see one of our majestic manta rays swimming by or one of the scuba divers favourites the massive and harmless whale shark.
