Safety has always been Aloha Diving’s number one priority.

Our efforts start with new government regulations and DAN International recommendations, but go even further. New policies also include touchless electronic waivers, food safety practices, testing on site at hotels, and more. We want our guests to be able to relax and enjoy diving, knowing that every effort is being made to keep both guests and staff protected.

We ask of our guests:

  • Thank you for wearing your masks on the island, to support the local effort to protect everyone’s health and safety!  While in our shop and during boarding, we request that all guests use face masks, observe social distancing, and avoid physical contact as much as possible.
  • We ask all Divers to submit their Waivers and Diver Registration Forms online, rather than in person.  These forms are best filled out prior to arrival.  If on-island, they can be accessed via personal smartphones or tablets.
  • We ask all Divers to provide prove of covid vaccination or negative RT-PCR test or negative antigen rapid test within 7 days
  • We ask all guests to bring their own drinking water bottle.
  • We ask any Diver who experiences a fever, cough, or headache to not to join dive trips, to avoid risks to others.  If such circumstances arise, a customer can call our office to cancel and receive full credit for future visits when you feel better.  Please do not travel if experiencing symptoms.

We ask all Divers to follow DAN International recommendations to protect oneself and others:

  • Wash hands frequently
  • Maintain social distancing
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth
  • Cover nose/mouth with a tissue when coughing or sneezing.
  • Seek medical care early for a fever, cough, or difficulty breathing.  Locally, we recommend Phuket International Hospital if needed.
  • Stay informed and follow advice given by one’s healthcare provider


We provide for our guests and community:

  • All Aloha Diving staff are wearing masks at all times – in the shops, on the piers, and also on the boats.
  • Hand sanitizer is readily available for guest use and convenience at all our locations.
  • Our boat trips are running at reduced capacity to maximize social distancing.
  • Our public store location and desks are cleaned and disinfected twice a day.
  • Our boat is cleaned and disinfected in the morning at the harbor before all dive trips, and again after the trips. During trips, our crew has disinfectant products to keep cleaning as needed, especially high-touch surfaces such as w.c. handles, bars, ladder, etc.
  • On-board food is now organized into sealed sack lunches for each individual Diver.

Equipment:

  • Divers with their own gear are free to use our fresh water tank, which contains quaternary ammonia with sufficient concentration to safely sanitize dive equipment.
  • For rental equipment, please note:  regulators are rented without mouth pieces.  These are also available for purchase from our shop and other scuba boutiques in town.  If Divers bring their own, we can help install them.
  • Divers are required to clean and rinse rental equipment each day during their diving schedule.

Hotel location during your scuba diving vacation in Covid-19 pandemic

The Rawai and Nai Harn regions are particularly suitable for accommodation. Whether hotel, guest house or private villa; there is a wide choice for every budget. However it needs to be a SHA+ certified accommodation. The gorgeous Nai Harn beach, the breathtaking sunset viewpoints and the authentic promenade of Rawai are just a few highlights. In addition, the Chalong diving Pier is only a few kilometers away and can be reached within a 10-minute drive.

Can I book diving adventures with Aloha Diving and what are the cancellation conditions?
