Customised diving experience while scuba diving in Phuket
For scuba diving in Phuket we use our own diving vessel M/V Matchanu exclusively for our divers. Although the ship is licensed for 20 divers, we only accommodate maximum 12 divers. This ensures our divers comfort and plenty of space to enjoy relaxed scuba diving in Phuket. We go out every day, all year round, but deliberately do without a rigid timetable. The criteria for choosing a dive site are weather, wind, waves, tides and currents. Of course, customer requests and diving course requirements are also taken into account. Another requirement is to dive at as “deserted” dive sites as possible and to avoid the large diving boats (with 50+ divers aboard) while scuba diving in Phuket. In addition, we have many years of experience in heading for selected dive sites at the right time. We make sure that the guided diving groups are small and divided according to the diving experience. Experienced divers can explore the dive spots on their own if they wish so. There are no dive time limits – we dive as long as the air lasts in our cylinders. The diving vessel collects us always quickly, no matter where we surface. Our diving trips don’t have a tight schedule which leads to an extremely relaxed atmosphere on board. All of this contributes significantly to the fact that you will experience extremely qualitative and individual scuba diving in Phuket.
Scuba Diving in Phuket to the Similan Islands
Further north of Phuket there are the famous Similan Islands with Richelieu Rock and / or Myanmar (Burma). The starting point for scuba diving tours there is Khao Lak, respectively a place called Tablamu. However, we recommend a multi-day liveaboard to see the highlights of the Similan Islands. Further north, the chances of spotting whale sharks and manta rays increases.
Rebreather diving in Phuket
Our dive excursions allow sometimes longer dive times required by rebreather divers. If you are a certified rebreather diver, you may join our recreational daily diving trips. In any case, we provide full support for rebreather divers, including rebreather gas fills. Secure storage for rebreather units is available free of charge. For Rebreather diving in Phuket we have a vast experience and can provide you with detailed information.
