Aloha Dive Center

Mission

With uncompromising professionalism and consistent commitment we offer to our guests from all over the world incomparable, innovative premium quality scuba diving and water sports activities at the best possible price-performance ratio in Phuket.

Aloha Dive Center

Vision

We are dedicated to upgrading Phuket as a diving destination and to show the beauty of the Andaman Sea in its correct light.

To achieve this we consistently stick to our convictions and strategy. This means that we accommodate a limited number of participants, a maximum of 10 divers per diving excursion, on our boat which is available exclusively for our guests. This sets us apart from other diving centers without an own boat. They have to book their guests on collective boats with up to 50 places. Instead of insisting on a fixed schedule, we plan our scuba diving activities individually by focusing primarily on nature. For example, there are routes that are associated with an uncomfortably rough crossing when there are high waves. Or dive sites that are too challenging with strong currents but easy and with the best visibility on another day. This means that we take into account weather, wind, waves and tides a few days in advance and decide which dive site is best based on our experience. Further criteria that are included in the planning are variety, customer requests, diving requirements and avoiding other diving vessels at the same spot as much as possible. We specifically carry out 2 dives a day. They are extensive because there are no diving time requirements, the guided groups are small and put together according to the diving experience. Our diving trips are designed for quality, enjoyment and relaxation. So basically, we are „diving“ against mainstream in Phuket. Because usually 3 dives are offered with a tight daily schedule and little flexibility.

Thanks to many technical achievements, diving is nowadays accessible to almost everyone and just one leisure activity out of many. The more we wish that scuba diving is no longer degenerated into a consumer good, but rather that it is a deep passion connected with nature. Like the scuba diving pioneers back then, we enjoy the privilege of experiencing the mysterious and fascinating underwater world up close and adoring the enormous abundance of fish and the impressive biodiversity of the Andaman Sea over and over again. Decent with us and join us on this mission!

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.

Meet the team

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 PADI and SSI 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!
