Deeply Committed!

Aloha is an internationally well-known form of greeting and means both Hello and Goodbye. The Aloha Spirit is a life philosophy and describes the way we treat each other with love and respect and share positive feelings and thoughts. The Shaka hand gesture (our Logo) is the ultimate symbol of the Aloha Spirit and simply means “hang loose” – relax and enjoy the moment.

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 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.

We can advise you on most points of interests in the Rawai Beach and Nai Harn Beach districts: for example where to find a good bakery, supermarkets, restaurants, Thai massages etc. We can also provide assistance in renting a motorbike or finding accommodation nearby.

Aloha Diving is an authorised dealer for scuba diving and snorkeling equipment for Mares, Scubapro, Apeks, Aqualung and Poseidon. We also have our own branded accessories such as tee-shirts, caps, mask straps and rash shirts. When an item you need is not on stock we can usually get it delivered from the warehouse within 24 hours.

Opening hours & Location
Phuket Dive Center workshop

Aloha Diving has a fully equipped dive workshop – with all the tools and spare parts (for most makes of equipment) that allow us to service and repair your equipment at short notice if required.

We also have a full range of quality diving and snorkeling equipment for hire – so you don’t need to worry about bringing any of that “heavy stuff” on your International flight and risk being overweight!!! If you want to be absolutely sure we can meet all your equipment needs you can order what you need (and specify sizes) online through the Aloha Diving Phuket.

Our Aloha Fun Tank was originally a steel shipping freight container that has travelled thousands of miles on ships, railways and trucks all over the world!! After it was taken out of service the globetrotter has been given a new permanent home at Rawai, Phuket with a new life as an above ground all-purpose diving/swimming and recreational event pool.

Asia’s first event swimming pool is operated by Aloha Diving (known as the Aloha Fun Tank).

Meet the Aloha Diving Team and a hello form the owners

Aloha from Alice and Simon! – we are the Swiss owners of Aloha Diving. We left Switzerland to follow our passion for diving. We are both SSI and PADI certified instructors and have worked for dive centers in Thailand, Cyprus, The Maldives and Egypt. Over past years we have trained and accompanied a wide range of divers and gained valuable work experience.
With the launch of Aloha Diving we had the chance to fulfill a long-held wish to become the owners of a boutique dive center in Phuket, Thailand.
We love sharing our passion for diving with our students and certified divers. Teaching and working with different people in consistently new and challenging situations inspires us. And to see smiling, happy faces after an awesome dive is simply great!
