There are many dive shops in Phuket but not nearly as many boat. Often when you look at a website it looks like a whole fleet of Day Trip boats is available for your pleasure and you end up booking your dives with a booking agent or small shop that is not responsible for anything and just lives off the booking commission received from the boat owner . This often means you end up on the cheapest possible boat (for the booking Agent not for you) with not much on service, sitting like the sardines on a totally overcrowded dive deck, diving with a dive guide taking pictures the whole time wanting to sell you the CD with pictures after the dive while getting short changed on dive time (usually 30 to 40 minutes) and surface breaks(1 hour) since all they want to do is getting home quickly.
We truly believe we can do a lot better than that. We do limit the amount of guests on board, our guides look after you and show you the marine live around you without taking pictures the whole time and you will not be pressured to buy a CD after the dive. We allow a dive time of a full 60 minutes and have a appropriate surface interval of at least 90 minutes so you can make 3 x 60 minute dives in one day safely. Our experienced guides will also work with you and help you to expand your diving time if your air consumption leaves you a little short on dive time. Bigger, 15 Liter Tanks are available as well. The dive day with us is therefore a little longer and we serve a dinner on the way back after 3 dives.
The longer times under water and above between the dives and the dinner as well as the experienced guides also cost a little more money but we are convinced it's more than worth it. To give you a chance to see for yourself and to compare we have a 1 Time offer for you all. Get a dive day with 2 or 3 dives with us for just 3000 Baht plus equipment rental and see for your self.

Scuba Diving in Phuket and the Similan Islands
Phuket, Thailand is often referred to as the 'Pearl of the South' and for scuba divers it's certainly the crown jewel of the Andaman Sea.
This island paradise lies only 8 degrees north of the equator and enjoys a tropical climate year round. With an average water temperature of 28°C/78°F this area contains an amazing variety of aquatic life.
For divers, the true treasures of the Andaman Sea are found at famous dive sites such as the Similan Islands, Phi Phi Islands, Koh Raja and Shark point, where the warm, clear water draws large schools of tropical fish, manta rays, and the awe-inspiring whale shark. The wealth of aquatic life combined with good visibility will delight underwater photographers and marine naturalists.
With the combination of world-class diving, superb scenery, great entertainment and international resort facilities, Phuket, Thailand has all the right ingredients for a perfect diving holiday.
