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 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
