Scuba Diving Thailand

Are you planning a diving holiday in Thailand? Congratulations, that’s a great decision! Because Thailand is quite rightly a very popular holiday destination. Besides excellent diving the country offers so much more! Although some regions are very touristy, the Asian way of life is still very much present. The mentality of the people in the Land of Smiles is extremely pleasant and unobtrusive. You really don’t have to worry being constantly ripped off. The infrastructure is very high developed in the tourist areas. “Modern” amenities such as free WIFI, good roads, electricity, hot water, air conditioning and 24 hour shops on every corner are not everywhere standard in Asia. This also applies to the good medical care. Traveling around the country is cheap and without any problems. Whether by plane, train, bus or ferry; get easily to your destination. There are countless accommodations from simple but charming Guest Houses to luxury Resorts right on the beach. The standard in Thailand compared to other countries, such as Egypt, is very high. You do not have to book at least a 4-star hotel. And what about the delicious food! Whether in restaurants, in markets or along the road, the meals are fresh, wholesome and simply delicious. There is around the clock a large selection of local and international food as well. Of course there are also plenty of very diverse recreational activities. Besides diving, there are snorkeling and sightseeing trips, temples, Buddha statues, shopping, adventure parks, quads, elephant trekking, museums, etc. available. The prices are still moderate for tourists from like Europe, Australia, United States of America.

Since there are quite various destinations in Thailand, it is not always easy to do the right decision. Especially if you are a diver or want to become one. Perhaps you are traveling with family members or friends who are not interested in diving. One looks for a party place or another one preferably take a vacation in an “all inclusive” resort on a beach in the middle of nowhere. And the next one is rather an individual-tourist and a proactive adventurer. Then the question about the best traveling time arises. Let’s assume that diving is the main motivation of a holiday.

Your Scuba Diving specialists in Phuket

For divers want to make the daily diving trips to the southern dive sites of Phuket, a hotel in this region is advisable to book (e.g. Chalong, Rawai, Kata Noi, Kata, Karon, Patong or Kamala). Long and tedious journey times to the port can be avoided like this.

Aloha Diving is awesome. My girlfriend and I emailed Simon months before our trip about taking an open water diver course. Simon promptly responded to our email (as he does with any email or message you may send him) with all the information we needed to get started plus set us up for some online learning. Once we arrived in Phuket, Simon picked us up from where we were staying and we began the class room portion of the course. Simon is an incredibly kind, knowledgeable, and efficient teacher. By the time it was time to start diving Simon had answered all of our questions and we felt very prepared. On the diving days Simon and his staff were prompt with pick up, briefed us on each location and the skills we needed to perform there, and overall ensured we got the most out of every dive by giving us tips and pointing out many different types of sea life. Simon also sent us a file full of pictures he took of us on each dive which is an added plus. I really do not believe we could have had a better experience. Simon and his team are the best and i would recommend them to anyone.read more
