Phuket Diving Half Day Trips – Experience the local lifestyle

Half Day Diving Trip to Local Islands

Undoubtedly, the best way to dive in Phuket is to make a day trip with a spacious and comfortable diving boat. The spectacular dive sites around Phuket are namely a little further away and boats therefore must travel greater distances. For this you will be rewarded with world-class diving! Nevertheless, it is good to have a reasonable alternative to the full-day diving trips. Because in Phuket, resp. Rawai there are also on land to discover a lot of exciting things. It often happens that not all partners / family members dive or enjoy a boat ride. Therefore, we offer between October to May (because only then the conditions allows) Half-day Diving Trips, with a classical, thai Longtail Boat starting from Rawai Beach. Weather and tide dependent, we can go out during certain times of the day to the near by islands like Buddha Islands and Potato Island. These dive sites are still untouched, since large dive boats don’t go there. The reefs consist of large boulders, which are overgrown with intact hard and vibrant soft corals. At depths between 0-30 meters there is diverse marine life with sometimes limited visibility and strong current. After a short cruise along the stunning coast line, we make two dives with the prescribed surface interval between the dives. This Half-Day Diving Trips are also ideal for scuba diving courses and Try Scuba Diving. Not only for scuba divers, but also for free divers we organize this half-day boat trips. We take over the supervision on the surface and provide a suitable surface buoyancy device and descent line as well as safety equipment.

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!read more

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.read more

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 and we'll be diving with next next year when we return to Thailand.read more

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!read more

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.read more

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.read more

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 comfortable during the whole trip. We did 3 dives in different sites around the Racha islands. We loved it!!!read more

Wow! I wanted to scuba dive 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!read more
