Half day diving trips to local islands

Aloha Diving Phuket

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 usually good visibility. 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.

Or according to the motto “who sleeps longer in the morning, will last longer in the evening”, we offer another half-day tour, which is particularly suitable for long sleepers and sunset lovers. This tour with a speedboat starts at 12.00 noon from Chalong and ends at about 6.30 pm, including a sunset cruise. We do two dives at the nearby island called Racha Yai.
