Project Description

Scuba Diving Day Trips

What makes our Phuket scuba diving day trips special?

We carry out diving day trips with our own diving boat MV Matchanu. To ensure comfort and enough space for our divers, we only take a maximum of 12 divers on the day trips. This contributes significantly to the fact that our scuba diving trips are extremely individual, familiar and comfortable. In addition, we have many years of experience in heading to selected dive sites at the right time.

How is the itinerary of a scuba diving tour in Phuket?

Our first class dive tours in Phuket take place every day and all year round. The day trips for diving start and end in Chalong, where Phuket’s only port for diving boats is located.

A day trip starts at 8 a.m. Depending on the diving destination, we will be back in port between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m.

After boarding the crew holds a boat briefing, explaining the daily routine. Then the divers are assigned to their places where the diving equipment is ready to be assembled with our support.

The distance to the dive sites varies between 9 and 26 nautical miles. The boat trip takes between 1 and 3 hours, depending on the diving destination.

Before we extensively explore the exciting underwater world of Phuket during two dives, we hold a dive site briefing.

Free drinking water, coffee and tea are available throughout the day. A light breakfast, a selection of Thai dishes for lunch and various fruits are also served. Softdrinks and beer are available at a surcharge.

During the surface break of at least 1.5 hours, we have enough time to take lunch, rest or have a chat. On the way back we relax on deck and look forward to another great day of diving in Phuket.

Quality Scuba Diving Day Trips that pays off

No matter if you plan just one scuba diving day trip or several day trips; we are delighted to discover the beauty of the Andaman Sea with you!

You have the option to book individual, single day diving trips online or on site. Or you decide in advance to go for the discounted diving package which includes multiple day trips for diving in Phuket.

The diving days of the diving package can be distributed over your entire vacation, depending on availability.

We can grant you an additional discount of THB 200 per day trip if you organize the round-trip from the hotel to the port yourself.
