Aloha Diving Dive Center Phuket

I’m Aloha.

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.

Deeply Committed

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.

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!

    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! 😊read more

    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!read more

    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!read more
