Phuket Diving offers exceptional diving as it's the only resort area, set in the center of the Andaman Sea where divers can reach most of Thailand's main diving attractions.
There are regular liveaboard trips departing from Phuket to the renowned Similan Islands Richelieu Rock, Hin Daeng and also Burma. Phuket counts around 30 dive sites all of varying degrees of depth making it possible for divers of all levels and experience to find something.

Always dive according to your level of training. Check with your dive center for safety, additional information and level required for each dive site before entering the water.


Diving in Phuket is possible all year although the best conditions are available November through to April.
Water temperatures fluctuate between a comfortable 27-30°C (88-98 feet). The surface conditions are generally calm to moderate.

Beware that late May to October brings monsoon winds and surface swells to the island, sometimes reducing visibility by about 25%-30%, but it's pretty rare that diving trips are cancelled due to bad weather. October also comes with heavy rains.

There are a lot of liveaboard operators in Phuket and the liveaboard season runs from October to around mid May. However you can find a few liveaboards departing for Phi Phi Islands and the Similans all year round despite the unpredictable weather conditions of May - October. Liveabaord cruises generally last 1 week but may vary according to demand.

While in Phuket you will have the chance to dive sites like:

Anemone reef, King cruiser wreck, Koh Dok Mai, Racha Noi, Racha Yai, Koh Hi and Shark point just to name a few as the list is very long.

More details about the different regions of Phuket and the dive sites accesible from there can be found in the Phuket sub pages.
