Daily Dive Sites

Phuket’s local dive sites offer diving for all experience levels, from gentle slopes with calm conditions for the beginner to wrecks and deep dives for the more adventurous diver. NEW for this season, we offer the superb and more distant sites of Phi Phi, Raya Noi, Koh Ha, Hin Muang and Hin Daeng by comfortable speed catamaran, as well as a fast dive trip to Phi Phi with a luxurious lunch, five times a week by speedboat.

Racha Yai
Racha Yai, located 14 nautical miles south of Phuket, is reached in 1½ hours by daily boat. Perfect for all levels of diver training or just for easy, relaxed diving with its shallow bays, gentle slopes and calm conditions. Visibility is among the best in the whole Phuket area. On the east side stag horn coral is predominate, while rocks and boulders are more common on the west side
.

Racha Noi
An additional 8 nautical miles further south, you reach Racha Noi. These islands (there are technically two of them) offer similar diving to Racha Yai, but the tips situated north and south of the island group exhibit surrounding deep water and sometimes extremely strong currents. These invite bigger pelagic marine life such as eagle rays, barracudas and big groupers. These are also the only areas very close to Phuket where Manta Rays are a possibility. Racha Noi is done by daily boat and, NEW for this season, also by fast and comfortable speed catamaran. With the latter, the time to the dive sites is a mere 50 minutes!


Shark Point
Shark Point, located 16 nautical miles east of Phuket, consists of three submerged reefs within swimming distance. This very popular dive site offers a variety of marine life. The name comes from the gentle, bottom dwelling leopard sharks which are common in the area. Other marine life often seen are moray eels, octopus, schools of sweet lips and trevallies.

Anemone Reef
A beautiful dive site, located only a short distance north of Shark Point. As the name indicates, the reef is covered with sea anemones and colorful soft corals. Schools of snapper, barracudas and fusiliers hover over the reef and leopard sharks are often found resting on the sandy bottom.

King Cruiser
On May 4th, 1997 the 85-meter-long passenger ferry ”King Cruiser”, heading for the Phi Phi Islands, hit Anemone Reef. She sank less than an hour later just a short distance away. Fortunately it was a perfect day with a flat sea and all 600 passengers were rescued by nearby boats. Sitting upright on the seabed at a maximum depth of 32 meters and with her bridge at 14 meters, she offers a nice wreck dive.


Phi Phi Islands
The Phi Phi Islands are world famous for their stunning limestone cliffs rising up to two hundred meters straight out of the sea. Located 27 nautical miles east of Phuket, we offer these splendid dive sites NEW for this season by speedboat five times a week, and also by speed catamaran twice a week. Journey times are a mere 60 to 75 minutes each way. No more long hours on a dive boat with late-night returns to Phuket in the dark. Instead you'll be back in Chalong in the afternoon. The variety of dives sites include wall dives, coral gardens and rugged rock formations with caves, swim-throughs and overhangs. Leopard sharks, turtles and sea snakes are frequently seen. There are also sightings of whale sharks every season ...

Koh Ha
Koh Ha means "five islands" in Thai, but actually there are six beautiful islands in this little archipelago. Famous for its regular great visibility and beautiful scenery both above and below water, we choose the best dive sites therein for the day, far from the crowds. This favourite dive area boasts wonderful swim-throughs, turtles and the occasional whale shark and big ray. Located 38 nautical miles southeast of Phuket, these dive sites are NEW for the season and reached by speed catamaran in only 1 hour 30 minutes.

Hin Muang and Hin Daeng
These are the best dive sites in Thailand outside of the Similan and Surin National Park area (which you should dive from our liveaboard). Hin Muang and Hin Daeng offer the deepest wall diving in all of Thailand. Hin Muang is a submerged ridge starting about 8 meters under the surface and dropping off to 70 meters. The fish life is amazing due to the currents which are often present. Hin Daeng is situated only a few hundred meters away and rises a few metres above the surface and drops to more than 50 meters. It has beautiful soft corals. These sites are the furthest away on the daily diving schedule and completely NEW for this season. They offer the best chance in the whole Andaman Sea outside of the Similans to see whale sharks and Manta Rays. We do them weekly by fast and rugged speed catamaran if weather conditions permit. They are definitely worth the ride time of merely 2 hours 15 minutes.
