"Scuba Diving in Phuket" Scuba Diving Tip by Jamiemonk

Scuba Diving, Phuket: 8 reviews and 16 photos

There is a wide variety of diving available from Phuket, from 2 tank day trips up to 10 day liveaboard cruises up to Burma. Of the local (day trip) sites, my favourites are Racha Noi and Shark Point. Further afield, you can't beat the Similan islands for coral and fish life, and Hin Daeng has a great drop off and over the last few years has been the best spot for big fish.

Day trip prices are from 60 - 110 U$ depending on location, number of dives etc..

Liveaboards to the Similans can be as short as 2 days, though 4 days is recommended to see the most dive sites. If possible, get a boat that includes Richelieu Rock in the itinerary.

You can dive a good 10 days without repeating sites, making Phuket a great place for a dive vacation.
