Accommodations

Where our Phuket Dive Center is located

Our Phuket dive center is located in Rawai Beach / Nai Harn, in the very south of Phuket Island. The quiet area, away from mass tourism Patong, Karon and Kata, have still largely retained their original charm. Near by there are several idyllic beaches like Nai Harn, Ao Sane and Yanui with good snorkeling. Our attractive house reef is located at Yanui Beach. We are often seen there while diving both by day and night.

Popular Highlights: The Promtep Cape is just around the corner and is a popular view point for breathtaking sunsets. There are many charming guesthouses, hotels, bars and restaurants in the region with free Wi-Fi available. Of course there is no lack of 7/11 supermarkets and Thai massages. Tailors are also well represented, producing tailored clothes for a reasonable price. At Rawai Beach (which is not convenient for swimming) local fishermen offer their daily catch on a small fish market. If required the food will be freshly cooked in a restaurant right opposite. Another “highlight” and point of interest is Phuket’s Big Buddha, just 10 km away. Of course we have a few more insider tips, we would like to share with our guests personally!

Getting around: Access to transport makes life and holidays here very comfortable and helps you to explore the countless attractions of the island. Motorbikes can be easily rented and are cheap (THB 200 to THB 350 per day). Inside information in vacationing on Phuket you find in the Travel + Leisure blog post: A Guide to Vacationing in Phuket

Accommodation: We are always pleased to assist our guests in finding suitable accommodation in the Rawai / Nai Harn Beach districts. There is wide range of accommodation available from low cost B&Bs to 5 star Hotels and beach-side Jungle resorts – and just about everything else in between!!

Transfer from your Phuket Dive Resort for Scuba Diving: All daily boat diving trips start from Chalong Pier, which is reachable within 10 minutes from our dive Centre. The transfer is free of charge from Rawai Beach and Nai Harn district.

We're a family of seasoned divers, and this is our first time in Thailand. My expectations were contained, because I thought this beautiful country is not exactly world class in terms of diving. I was WRONG!Alice, the lovely lady who runs the shop, has this uncanny gift to turn almost every dive into something unique. Seahorse for example: I see one every 300 dives, and this is my second. Assuming 50 USD for one dive, that's a 15000 USD value! She also set up a drag race between me and a black tip reef shark; I crossed the finishing line in P2, not bad for a human :).All in all, these guys have my warmest recommendation. Heil Switzerland!

It was an extremely great experience, cery organized dive center, and they do care about their customers perfectly. Their diving gear is excellent and organized, much better than orher companies in terms of details and type of gear they are providing. Also, they know the area verry well which is really needed to be safe and to see the most out of the diving sites.

Wir haben von meiner Schwester die Adresse von Aloha Diving erhalten. Unsere kleine Gruppe hat sich für einen Schnuppertauch-/ Schnorchelausflug entschieden und es hat sich wirklich 100% gelohnt. Alice und Marc haben uns perfekt betreut. Unsere Kids waren begeistert nach ihren zwei Tauchgängen und auch wir haben unsere Schnorchelgänge genossen. Wir können Aloha Diving nur weiter empfehlen. Sehr professionell alles erklärt! Sehr gerne wieder.(Translated by Google)We have received the address of Aloha Diving from my sister. Our small group opted for a trial diving / snorkeling trip and it was really worth 100%. Alice and Marc took perfect care of us. Our kids loved their two dives and we enjoyed our snorkeling too.

Aloha Diving is absolutely a top notch dive shop in Phuket combining Swiss hospitality with outmost professionalism and attention to customer’s needs. I had a pleasure of having a truly boutique and private diving experience with Alice off Phi Phi Islands in early July 2019. Everything, from booking on a very short notice only 2 days in advance to saying goodbye on a pier at the end of the dive day, was a 5-star experience. If you’re looking to avoid a conveyer style, tourists overcrowded Phuket’s dive shops and want to have a customized client-centric, safe & enjoyable diving experience, then Aloha Diving is that place!

Wir haben insgesamt drei Tage mit Aloha diving verbracht. Es hat Riesen Spaß gemacht und die Eigentümer sind uns von Anfang an entgegen gekommen. Simon war sehr freundlich bei der Beratung und hat uns alle Infos die wir brauchten gegeben. Alice hat uns vor Ort betreut und sich um das organisatorische gekümmert. Mark der Tauchlehrer der uns auf dem Boot und Unterwasser begleitet hat zeigte sich auch sehr bemüht und professionell. Einfach nur weiter so :) Kann man nur empfehlen.(Translated by Google)We spent a total of three days with Aloha diving. It was great fun and the owners came to us from the beginning. Simon was very friendly with the advice and gave us all the information we needed. Alice took care of us on site and took care of the organizational. Mark the instructor who accompanied us on the boat and underwater was also very helpful and professional. Just keep it up :) Can only be recommended.

Update vom 30. März 2019: Was soll ich noch groß schreiben liebe Leute..Der 5. BESUCH bei den Beiden mit Aloha und du kommst an und weißt einfach, hier bist du richtig. Ein wunderbarer Tauchtag nach Koh Racha Yai und Noi mit 3 Tauchgängen. Kommt einfach und genießt DAS WAHRE TAUCHABENTEUER! Es wird euch gefallen. Danke an Mark für den tollen Tag! :) -----------------Update 2nd November 2018: Heute mal auf Deutsch..Der vierte Besuch bei Aloha Diving in Rawai auf Phuket und mal wieder 5-Sterne Service! Trotz relativ neuer, widriger Umstände durch verschiedene große Bootbesitzer, die versuchen die kleineren Tauchschulen ausbluten zu lassen und kräftig im Preis anziehen wollten, lässt sich Aloha nicht kleinkriegen und sticht jetzt mit wesentlich gemütlicheren Booten und zwei Deluxe Tauchgängen in See. Die Boote sind etwas kleiner, Personenanzahl insgesamt auf 15 begrenzt, was es ehrlich gesagt wesentlich angenehmer macht und trotzdem genug Platz an Bord ist. Verpflegung wie immer super, die Crew fantastisch und was der Oberhammer ist, die Tauchzeit ist unbegrenzt. Der erste von zwei Tauchgängen war 70 Minuten!!! Der zweite ca. 60. Alles ohne Stress, ohne Hektik, jeder solange er Luft hat. Dafür wird gesorgt. Nicht wie auf den großen Booten wo man ständig gehetzt wird. Alice hat sich super viel Mühe gegeben, alles bis ins kleinste Detail er- und geklärt und sich wunderbar um mich gekümmert. Waren eine Gruppe von 2. Was soll man mehr sagen? Auch Simon stand wie immer mit Rat und Tat zur Seite. Eines ist sicher, Simon und Alice werden mich jedes Mal wiedersehen, wenn ich vor Ort bin. Danke euch für diesen schönen, sehr fischreichen Tag und euren außergewöhnlich, exzellenten Service! Aloha und bis bald wieder hoffentlich!Richard___________________Update 27th March 2018: Third visit and stay at Aloha Diving and amazing again like all the time before! Every time you're with them, you feel very familiar and close to them. First time for me to meet Alice, the wonderful lady also in the office with Simon, who told me everything about my next possibilities in things of diving and adviced me perfectly. Had a great trip again to another spot for me. Phi Phi and Sharkpoint was wonderful to dive, perfect conditions underwater and also on the boat with that perfect organisation and of course the transfer from the hotel before, even if some hours booked before. My instructor Tony was very helpful, experienced and open minded. Thanks to you too Tony! Last but not least, Simon, thanks for all of your good and safe organisation! Guys, you're really great, thanks a lot again and hope to dive with you soon! Best regards & AlohaRichard__________________Update 20th Oct 2017:Decided one day before in the afternoon to join this great adventure again and had a another very cool and exciting diving trip. Different locations than yesterday, same great boat, same great and nice crew (always very helpful), same perfect instructor as yesterday (many thanks to Klaus again) and a lot of other fishes (also a shark), reefs and also a wreck but ten times bigger as yesterday. It was a great tour guys from Aloha Diving! Thanks again for these amazing two days! Best regards! -----------------------------------Fun-Diving with Aloha Diving on 19th Oct 2017I was driving by the way to Rawai, looking for a Diving company in Phuket and saw Aloha Diving. Simon (Part CEO/ very nice and experienced) told me everything what I want to know about Fun Dives and the Advanced Open Water Course, because I made my Open Water 4 weeks ago on Koh Tao. Decided to practice with Fun Dives was a good decision. Klaus, my personal Instructor (very competent and experienced too) told me everything to need about the region, showed me incredible beautiful fishes and as a highlight dived through a old wrack. It was a perfect day, perfect conditions, perfect team, perfect boat with all Inclusive. Fantastic breakfast, lunch, afternoon cakes and Drinks for free. A very big thank you to Simon and Klaus! Hope to see you soon again Guys! It was a pleasure for me!(Translated by Google)Update from March 30, 2019:What should I capitalize dear people ..The 5th visit to the two with Aloha and you arrive and just know, here you are right.A wonderful day of diving to Koh Racha Yai and Noi with 3 dives. Just come and enjoy THE TRUE DIVE ADVENTURE! You will like it. Thanks to Mark for the great day! :)-----------------Update 2nd November 2018:Today in German .. The fourth visit to Aloha Diving in Rawai on Phuket and again 5-star service! Despite relatively new, adverse circumstances by various large boat owners who try to bleed the smaller dive schools and wanted to attract strong in the price, Aloha can not get on and off now with much cozier boats and two deluxe dives in the sea. The boats are a little smaller, total number of people limited to 15, which makes it frankly much more pleasant and still enough space on board. Food as always great, the crew fantastic and what the Oberhammer is, the diving time is unlimited. The first of two dives was 70 minutes !!! The second about 60. Everything without stress, without hectic, every as long as he has air. This is taken care of. Not like on the big boats where you are constantly rushed. Alice made a great effort, everything in the smallest detail clarified and looked after wonderfully to me. Were a group of 2. What should one say more? Also Simon was as always with word and deed aside. One thing is for sure, Simon and Alice will see me every time I visit. Thank you for this beautiful, very fish-rich day and your exceptional, excellent service! Aloha and see you soon again!Richard___________________Update 27th March 2018:Third visit and stay at Aloha Diving Every time you're with them, you feel very familiar and close to them.

One Day Trip auf die PhiPhi Island, einfach ein Traum! Drei Tauchgänge waren dank der Guten Organisation von Simon & dem Team möglich. Bei Aloha Diving habe ich mich sofort gut aufgehoben gefühlt. Es wird großen Wert auf Sicherheit gelegt, ohne Tauchcomputer gehts nicht ins Wasser (bei der Ausrüstung incl.) . Das kannte ich von KohTao bisher so nicht. Außerdem hat Simon für uns tolle Bilder gemacht, so konnte ich mich ganz auf das Tauchen und das genießen des Tauchgangs konzentrieren, ohne störende Kamera in der Hand. Vielen Dank, ich empfehle Euch gerne weiter!(Translated by Google)One Day Trip to Phi Phi Iceland, just a dream!Three dives were possible thanks to the good organization of Simon & the team. At Aloha Diving I felt immediately good hands. It is very important to safety, without dive computer is not in the water (with the equipment incl.). The not I knew from KohTao been that way. In addition, Simon has made great pictures for us, so I could concentrate entirely on diving and enjoying the dive, without disturbing camera in hand. Thank you, I recommend you to continue!

Everyone said go to Thailand and do the diving and that's exactly what we did. My husband booked an Open Water Course with Aloha Diving and he was so exited and I had my doubts if I can do this or not. As expected my husband did alright and did almost everything from first try and I struggled with few skills. I have to say without Simon, our instructor I wouldn't be able to do it. He was so patient and chilled, controlling the situation at all times, and helping me to overcome my fears at my own paste. I would definitely recommend Aloha Diving for all underwater activities no matter which diving level you are and Simon as the best instructor for all girls out there who are overthinkers and have doubts about venturing into open waters. Thank you Aloha Diving and Simon, keep in touch!

Fantastic experience, couldn't recommend more. Three of us signed up for the Open Water Diver course, 2 beach dives and 2 boat dives. We were lucky to have a super relaxed instructor and another trainee instructor to ourselves, which particularly helped ease me when I had a mini panic attack on first entry in the beach dive. The equipment seemed state of the art, from the deep container pool at the training centre to the wetsuits, regulators, diving computers etc. And we got some amazing photos in the mix! They seriously went above and beyond, and set a really high bar to beat for our future dives!

Amazing diving in Phuket! Small group, no more than 15 people. Simon had great communication and very responsive from first point of contact. Many personal touches in customer service. As I was diving solo and was fairly new, I was assigned a dive master, Marc, to dive one on one with. Mark was very patient and educational along the way. I highly recommend this group. They are more concerned with enjoying the dive and customer service rather than overcrowding and rushing through to maximize their earning potential. They also were conscious of my vegetarian diet and were able to accommodate when the included lunch was served. They will not disappoint!

First time to Phuket and decided to do my open water course. There are so many diving schools in Phuket and spoilt for choice but very glad I had chosen Aloha! My instructor was Marc. He is a very experienced, patient and knowledgeable instructor who gave me a lot of diving tips and assurance and always ensured safety first. Even though it was a course with exams involved, it didn't feel stressful and instead it was a relaxing and leisure experience for me. I knew I was in good hands. Thank you Marc, Alice and Simon for the warm hospitality and laughter on board. No regret spending a bulk of my holiday on diving as it was the highlight and most enjoyable activity of my trip. Beautiful dive sites, fun and friendly crews and fellow divers. Will definitely be back for fun dives in the future! Thank you for the beautifully taken pictures too! Great to have them as my memories. Happy to return home as a certified Open Water Diver with Aloha and the journey of the beautiful underwater begins!

Found this place on Travel + Leisure magazine. What was supposed to be a three day course turned into 6 and I cancelled my other plans just to keep diving with Simon and Alice. These two have a real passion for diving, and you can feel it with the detail and care they take to ensure your dive experience is top notch in every way. Patient, kind, understanding, reassuring, challenging, yet encouraging, and very hospitable. If you’re learning to dive, brushing up, or just want a great guide these are your people. Small intimate boat, great crew, excellent experience all around. I would give it a million stars if I could!

An insgesamt 4 Tagen hatte ich die große Freude, gemeinsam mit Simon tauchen zu gehen. Es war eine sehr entspannte Atmosphäre auf einem nicht überfüllten Boot. Ich bin froh, mich für Aloha Diving entschieden zu haben, um folgenden Dingen aus dem Weg zu gehen: - Massenabfertigung beim Tauchen- strikte Zeitpläne- strkte TourenvorgabeBei Aloha Diving reagiert man spontan nach Wetter und Auslastung eines Tauchplatzes, wohin man fährt. Dies macht es zu einem unvergessenem Erlebnis!Danke ans Team!(Translated by Google)On a total of 4 days I had the great pleasure to go diving with Simon. It was a very relaxed atmosphere on a not crowded boat. I am glad to have chosen Aloha Diving to avoid the following things:- Mass processing during diving- strict schedules- strict tour requirementWhen Aloha Diving one reacts spontaneously to the weather and utilization of a dive site, where to go. This makes it an unforgettable experience!Thanks to the team!

When I am visiting Phuket I always end up diving with Aloha in Rawai because the company provides me with quality diving in a relaxed way. They understand that not everybody wants to be on the big boats, crammed with tourists, visiting the busy dive spots. Our last trip was on board the Poseidon. This boat can easily fit 15 to 20 divers but we were only a small group which was fantastic. We had all the time and space for laid-back diving and guess what? We discovered a new boat wreck! I definitely recommend this trip. Next I will be taking the 3 day trip to Phi Phi. I cant wait! 😊

Wir haben ein Schnuppertauchen gebucht, es war wirklich toll. Es hat alles perfekt funktioniert, weniger bürokratisch als die Konkurrenz und beim Preis war echt alles dabei. Tauchlehrer war richtig kompetent und freundlich. Wer in phuket tauchen möchte, den kann ich aloha diving nur empfehlen.

We’ve never thought that diving would be that amazing. We were glad to make this experience at Aloha diving. They were very professional and explained to us everything very well which makes us feel save under water. Also their tank is very beautiful! We’ve had an amazing trip and diving tour as well. We’ve learned a lot! If we ever go back to Pukhet we definitely come back visit them!

I went for a full day diving trip. I was picked up late due to traffic jam, but they kept me up to date with the situation. Other than that, the entire trip was smooth and flawless. My guide, Franck, is kind, knowledgeable and prepared me well for the 3 dives. The equipment are in good condition. Truly an unforgettable experience! I would recommend Aloha Diving to anyone!

Aloha Diving is awesome. My girlfriend and I emailed Simon months before our trip about taking an open water diver course. Simon promptly responded to our email (as he does with any email or message you may send him) with all the information we needed to get started plus set us up for some online learning. Once we arrived in Phuket, Simon picked us up from where we were staying and we began the class room portion of the course. Simon is an incredibly kind, knowledgeable, and efficient teacher. By the time it was time to start diving Simon had answered all of our questions and we felt very prepared. On the diving days Simon and his staff were prompt with pick up, briefed us on each location and the skills we needed to perform there, and overall ensured we got the most out of every dive by giving us tips and pointing out many different types of sea life. Simon also sent us a file full of pictures he took of us on each dive which is an added plus. I really do not believe we could have had a better experience. Simon and his team are the best and i would recommend them to anyone.

We went with the family (2 adults, 1 teenager) on three tours with 3 dives on each tour. We had a great time. Dive instructors (Alice, Simon and Marc) did a fantastic job. The equipment was in perfect conditions, email communication was in "real-time" . Organisation (hotel pick-up, boat, briefing) very nice. The boat, the crew was excellent. If I could give once in a year a 6 star award, I would give it to Aloha diving!!!

Aloha diving made it possible!We had a great time with amazing dives and met wonderful peoples. The service you get is just on top of the top. Transferring you like a VIP from your hotel to the boat and back...all you need to do is to slip in your gear and jump in the water....just awesome! Also during the boat ride where enough food and drinks for all to keep everyone happy. Briefing and De-briefing was good and easy understandable for all and made the dives even more enjoyable. They also look after your diving skills to make sure you got the best dives for your comfort level. Alice and the team did great and we would go diving with them any time any place again! Companys like Aloha diving became rare. Where peoples get treated like individual personalities and taken the way they are. We really appreciate that personal touch!

We traveled to Phuket in June 2017 with a focus on spending the majority of our time diving. We went with Alice from Aloha diving and are so very pleased we did! This is a great small company it was just my husband and I and Alice. From our transport to and from the hotel, to the high quality equipment, local knowledge, safety and experience it was simply outstanding.We had booked 2 days diving with 3 dives per day and on the final dive I was so impressed we booked another day and ended up having 9 dives in total with Alice and Aloha Ocean Adventures.Having our Open Water dive certificate but not many dives under our weight belts having a professional instructor / guide who put our safety first was so very important to me and Alice and Aloha Ocean Adventures did not disappoint.Alice met us at the marina and brought us onto the shared large diving boat, she had an excellent working relationship with the crew and boat leader who were very helpful and knowledgeable. Alice explained everything to us, since it had been over a year since we dived, Alice walked us through our equipment by the end of the first dive we were handling, using and setting up our equipment like pros. Before each dive Alice would sit with us on the boat and go through the dive site, our plan for the dive and the marine life we were likely to experience. Her professionalism and love for diving made for some amazing dives! Her guidance and education has taken us from being novice divers up to the next level - she has invigorated our love of diving again.I am already planning another dive trip to Phuket and certainly be using Aloha Ocean Adventures again. Highly recommend.

I cannot recommend this company highly enough! My husband and I went to Phuket June 2017. Our Dive instructor Alice was simply amazing! Very professional, fun, knowledgeable, an excellent diver and most importantly put safety above all else. While my husband and I have our Open Water Dive certificate we do not have many dives under our weight belts and to dive with such a professional was an absolute pleasure. Alice took us from being novice divers to the next level, her guidance and training has really elevated our diving skills. We had booked 2 days with Alice to do 6 dives on our last dive I convinced my husband to spent our last day in Phuket with Alice diving - best decision ever! So we ending up doing 9 dives in total and each dive was a magical experience.Before each dive Alice went through the dive site with us on the boat, spoke about our plan for that dive, what we could expect and the marine life we were likely to see. Planning our dives was just part and parcel of her professionalism and her love of diving and the local dive sites. Our equipment was of the highest standard and she provided us with dive computers which was a first for us, no going back now. In fact I have asked for a dive computer for my upcoming birthday :) Our transport to and from our hotel was hassle free and organised by Aloha Diving. Alice has a close professional relationship with the boat crew and our boat was excellent and the crew and leader were very helpful and outstanding. We so very much appreciated having a dive instruction for just the two of us and it made us feel very safe and comfortable. Alice was able to plan our dives for maximum fun and safety.If your planning a dive trip to Phuket do not go past Aloha diving you will not be disappointed. Alice thank you so much for our experiences we will treasure them! I have already starting planning next years' trip and I will certainly be diving with you again. Until then take care.Much loveKaty & Nick

My wife and I booked for two days diving (6 dives) with Aloha. It was so good we added a third day's worth of diving. We dived with one of the owners, Alice and met the other owner Simon. They were great - transfers from our resort were seamless. The dives were wonderful and Alice not only provided great guidance while diving by spotting and pointing out the various forms of aquatic life but also provided great company in between dives. As a bonus she also provided us with photos from all of our dives for free rather than at a price (as is the usual custom among tourism operators.Aloha's diving equipment was in excellent condition and the dive boat which they used was spacious and comfortable. I'd thoroughly recommend Aloha Ocean Adventures to anyone interested in diving around Phuket. We'll be diving with them next year when we return to Thailand.

Went to Phuket for our anniversary, my wife has been wanting to try scuba diving as long as I can remember. I was nervous at first to jump right in without any training or prior knowledge, but our Aloha Guide, Simon, was an incredible instructor who kept us calm, well-informed, and allowed us to have 3 amazing dives! By the third dive, I felt like a pro already!We tried the "Try Scuba Diving" full day trip with 3 dives, and it was everything we hoped for - easy transportation, great service, delicious food, beautiful views and incredible diving. Would absolutely come back and scuba-dive again with Aloha!

My boyfriend and I went diving with Aloha in April and had the best time! He was new to diving, so we did the Try Scuba Diving full day boat trip. On the way out to our first (of three) dive location, Simon, our instructor, reviewed with us the basics of the equipment and then went into the fundamentals of diving. Once in the water, he made sure my boyfriend was comfortable with the techniques and the equipment. We both loved it and highly recommend Aloha and Simon. There was lots to see and Simon took great photos of us and the sea life, all of which were sent to us the next day at no charge.

This was absolutely amazing! My first diving experience was with Alice and she is a super-caring, experienced and lovely teacher. I was very scared to try diving for the first time, but with Alice everything went well and super smooth. She explained everything perfectly, she was by my side every moment, at the same time giving enough freedom to feel the real diving experience. Alice took great pictures and, unlike many other diving centers, Aloha Ocean Adventures don't charge an additional fee for the pictures. Alice is easy to get along with, she knows all the best spots and can find a right approach to any person. The boat is super comfortable, food is delicious, staff is helping and caring. I had one of the brightest experiences in my life and I highly recommend this diving center. This is a great example of people, who love what they do and know exactly how to make you love it as well.

I've had a great experience with Aloha Diving. It was my first time diving and I did a 2 day Scuba Diving course. Alice was a very competent and extremly nice instructor. I felt very safe at all times and learned a lot in those 2 days. It definetly made me want to continue to dive and if I'm ever again on Phuket, I will revist Aloha Diving.

I strongly recommend Aloha Diving when looking for a reliable diving company. We went for a try scubadive last december and had a great time with Simon. He is patient, very professional and especially passionate about what he does. It was the first time for us and we felt very comfortable during the whole dive. We did 3 dives in different sites around the Racha islands. We loved it!!!

Wow! I wanted to scuba dive and do an open water diver course since many years but never really had the chance. As I traveled to Phuket/Thailand I was looking for excellent diving schools and soon found Aloha Diving based in Rawai. Although I was based in Karon this was no problem as Aloha Diving will picks you up nearly everywhere in Phuket. Ok, so I gave it a chance and must honestly say that my expectations were excelled by far. Simon —one of the two founders— gave me the perfect introduction into the theory and practice of Open Water Diving and made sure that I felt completely comfortable and secure at all times. After preparing my theory via app and with Simon's help I took the test and made it easily on the first try. Now to the practical part: Starting in a very nice and exclusive pool (day 1) we stepped up the game the next day and went for 3 dives. Before entering the ocean (what a view) I was a little afraid I'd feel a little unwell as I never tried diving before (only snorkeling), but man was I wrong. I can say absolutely the same for day 3, which was even better (and another 3 dives, which is more than other diving schools give you) as I felt even more secure and understood the before learned better. I saw some amazing underwater life, we even dove through a small shipwreck. And now I am a diver!!! If you ever come to Phuket and want to give diving a try I highly recommend you check out Aloha Diving and do a beginner's course. I don't have any comparison to other schools but with this experience I don't need one. 6 stars :) I'll be back for more!

Im Februar 2017 hatte ich mein erstes Erlebnis in Sachen fun diving mit Alice und Simon von Aloha Diving und kann dieses Tauchzentrum nur weiter empfehlen. Da ich mit einem anderen Zentrum auf Phuket zwei Tage vorher nicht so zufrieden war, war ich anfangs skeptisch. Nachdem sich Alice dann aber die Zeit nahm alle meine Fragen (und die meiner Freundin, die ein Schnuppertauchen machen wollte) geduldig, freundlich, professionell - und mit Humor - zu beantworten, waren meine/unsere Zweifel aus dem Weg geräumt. Zu Recht, wie sich danach während des 1tägigen fun divings/Schnuppertauchens herausstelte! Es wurde gehalten was versprochen wurde (was leider nicht selbstverständlich ist) und der Bootsausflug mit drei Tauchgängen war rundum ein tolles Erlebnis. Schade dass ich am übernächsten Tag schon abreisen musste, sonst wäre ich sicher nochmal mit Aloha Diving tauchen gegangen. Beim nächsten Mal dann! 😀Danke an Alice, Simon und natürlich unseren guide Marc für das schöne Erlebnis! Alles Gute für euch und bis bald!

Aloha, Respect to the guides, especially Alice (our guide above and underwater). Everything was arranged perfectly and we had so much fun on the boat and even more underwater. We went to the Racha island and did 3 dives. First we learned the basic stuff on board and then began to dive. Alice was really nice and patient with us. She did her job great and made us feel like real divers at the end. She also showed us many wonderful fish, clams and we even so one big stingray and a octapus. She is also super good at taking pictures so we got some wonderful pictures of us underwater ( see yourself ). Just amazing - not a single bad word about the trip. The transport is not an issue, you also get breakfast, lunch and snacks after diving. It was truly our the highlight of our 2 weeks trip and we definately want to do more diving after this. Have fun,Jakob and Liis

Our experience with Aloha Diving was excellent!Our day trip to Racha Island began with Alice and Simon collecting us from our hotel to be taken to the port. Throughout the experience, Alice and Simon kept us informed with everything that was going on which allowed the experience to be very easy going. As a first time diver and a weak swimmer, I was made to feel very comfortable as I was guided throughout every step of the day. As for the diving experience itself, words cannot describe how amazing it was. I will definitely be diving again in the near future and it most certainly will be with Aloha Diving!

I had been wanting to try scuba diving for many years but hadn't really had the chance before. Now in phuket, although I had not planned it, I decided to give it a try and was referred to Simon from aloha diving. He came to meet me personally and was very friendly and keen to explain every diferent option in detail. Then, after thinking for a day, I decided to go for the "Try scuba diving boat" trip. I must say it's been one of the best decisions I have ever made when it comes to touristic activities. I really enjoyed every bit of it. Everything was just great, the trip included 3 dives at different locations, good buffet breakfast and lunch, coffee and tea and afternoon snacks. I must say that Simon was always very professional and patient towards a novice diver like me, always giving clear instructions and showing a big commitment to safety and customer service. To begin with, it was himself who picked us up from the hotel lobby to go to the pier. The boat was also very nice and clean, and the crew was very friendly and helpful. My wife also joined us for a cheaper price as she did not dive, however she enjoyed the day on the boat and went for some snorkeling at the diving locations. At the end of the day, I felt sorry that I had not planned this before coming to Thailand, otherwise I would've gone straight for the 3 day course Simon offered me without thinking twice. My wife was also very pleased with the experience and the service provided that she said she would definitely try it on a next holiday. Thank you very much to Simon and aloha diving for an amazing experience. God bless :)

Great experience for a first dive with no swimming experience. Had a wonderful moment with Aloha. A personalised one to one diving instructions given by Simon. Overall attitude to work and customer service was perfect. Friendly, excellent communication thru email, calm behaviour at the time of diving and providing instruction to novice divers, and a very dedicated and sincere attitude to his work. If anyone wants to have a first diving experience in Phuket, I would recommend everyone to choose Aloha. It was a best experience of my time in Phuket.

I did a full day trip with Simon to the Phi Phi Islands with 3 dives. Simon was very professional and kept an extra eye out for me that hadn't dived for a while, everything was really smooth from transportation from the Hotel to Phi Phi and back. And even if the weather could have been better it was 3 good dives and we saw some Black Tip Reef Sharks which is allways cool. Thank you Simon and Aloha Diving, I can for sure recommend you guys to people diving in Thailand

We had a great first experience diving with Aloha Ocean Adventure. Alice & Simon explained us everything very well, with patience and pedagogy. We felt safe and in good hands. We highly recommend every one who want to do diving in Phuket to contact them. Moreover, they are very well located (only 10 min drive from the harbour) and next to the nicest beaches and area of the island. We did 3 dives around Ko Phi Phi island (the best one was in anemone rift). It was a full day on a big diving boat (from 7am to 7pm) that you share with other groups. The boat is very confortable with a lot of space for everyone (we did’t feel cramped). Breakfast, lunch, fruits, pancakes, the and coffee were included. Overall a great experience.

A superb local small business owned by two people who find scuba diving as their ultimate passion. All booking communications were done through Alice and she made it seamless. We dove with Simon, and it was the experience of a lifetime. I was a first time diver and experienced some pretty serious anxiety on the first of three dives. He calmed me down and refused to let me quit, even though I persisted. His persistence and patience lead me into not only enjoying the second and third dives, but loving them! It was an amazing experience, and I would highly recommend Simon & Alice if you're thinking of diving
