Where do I dive during the Discover Scuba Diving in Phuket?

In our family-operated diving school in Phuket, you will not be treated like a number. The Try Scuba Diving takes place in small groups and with personal attention on our own diving boat.
There is an abundance of marine life at the dives sites located in the Andaman Sea around Phuket and your instructor will show you a diverse variety of fish, corals and marine creatures. As we have a flexible boat schedule we choose the dive sites in the morning of the Try Scuba Diving day depending on prevailing conditions such as weather, waves, tides and currents. Enjoy 2 dives with no time limit, on our easygoing diving boat. Dive sites suitable Try Scuba Diving in Phuket are the Racha Islands, Koh Mai Thon and Koh Doc Mai.


Please note that you are not allowed to fly after scuba diving for at least 18 hours.

Fit to dive?
We are asked this question quite often. Almost everyone is going to be fit to dive, but some medical conditions can cause problems underwater so it is important to make sure that you know if you are medically fit to dive. When you start a SSI Try Scuba Diving program, you are required to complete a medical statement to declare yourself fit to dive. This statement lists medical conditions that may be affected by diving so be sure to answer completely and honestly – it’s for your own safety.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any dangerous creatures I need to worry about?

Injuries to scuba divers from marine creatures are very rare. There is a lot of talk about sharks however attacks to scuba divers is extremely rare. There are a lot of different creatures in the sea that can bite or sting however 99.9% of the creatures are placid and timid and will not bother you. The golden rule is don’t touch or intimidate and you won’t get hurt. Very wise words.

Do I need a licence to Scuba Dive?

No, you can try scuba diving with this one day activity also called Try Dive, Discover Scuba Diving, Taster Dive or Discover Scuba.

Do I need to know how to swim to scuba dive?

The short answer is no (but it helps). You can do the Discover Scuba Diving – SSI Try Scuba Diving without knowing how to swim. If you would like to become a SSI certified diver then you will need to know how to swim 200m or snorkel 300m!

No – We discontinued offering SNUBA in 2013 as we think there are better ways to discover the underwater world. We would be delighted to take you out on a boat day trip for try diving.

We offer introductory dives bring you the fun of diving closer and are therefore carried out in small groups of a maximum of 2 – 3 students per instructor.

What do I need to take on the day trip boat with me?

Sunblock, towel, swimwear, in low season it’s a good idea to bring rain wear and a warm jacket. Most things are included in our trip price.
