Phuket Diving Itinerary

PHUKET and KAO LAK LAND BASED

Phuket is Thailand’s largest island which is located 900 km south of Bangkok in the Andaman Sea. The majority of Phuket’s tourism can be found along the island’s west coast beaches of Patong, Karon and Kata, where you’ll find bustling bars, restaurants, custom tailors and lots of very affordable shopping.

The Diving
Phuket – Perl of the Andaman SeaYour enjoyment and safety under water are our number one priority. There is a max ratio of four divers to one guide if you feel like joining one of our guided groups. Of course, you and your buddy can also discover our beautiful dive sites on your own after a thorough briefing.

Phuket’s dive sites average between 18 – 30m, and offer easy to medium diving levels. Drop-offs, small caves and wrecks are present as well as bizarre rock formations and coral gardens. The maritime life of the Andaman Sea is very versatile, and offers amongst many tropical fish also rare species such as sea horses and ghost pipe fish. Leopard sharks are frequent companions during our dives, and from time to time a manta can be seen in flight.

KHAO LAK
Khao Lak, on the west coast of Thailand’s mainland, is located only one hour drive from Phuket International Airport. Mile-long white sandy beaches as far as the eye can see.

Bordered in the south by the Khao Lak National Park , and the famous Khao Sok National park in the north lies this region nestled in a picturesque landscape at the bottom of a tropical mountain side.

Khao Lak is the ideal starting point for day trips to the Similan Islands , or a liveaboard trip to Richelieu Rock, Koh Tachai and Koh Bon.

The Dive Centre
Our shop is integrated in our Palm Garden Resort – Khao Lak, close to hotels, restaurants and shops.

The Diving
The dive sites on our day trips are carefully selected, and the max ratio of each group is four divers to one guide. The Similan Islands are visited six times a week and Koh Bon once weekly. These sites are rated amongst the “Top Ten” dive destinations in the world, and we are happy to be able to visit them daily with our guests. In addition, our dive trips take us on a regular basis to Boon sung Wreck with it’s overwhelming abundance of marine life.
