Where to Scuba Dive in Thailand?

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.

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.

Update 27th March 2018: Third visit and stay at Aloha Diving and amazing again like all the time before! Every time you're with them, you feel very familiar and close to them. First time for me to meet Alice, the wonderful lady also in the office with Simon, who told me everything about my next possibilities in things of diving and adviced me perfectly. Had a great trip again to another spot for me. Phi Phi and Sharkpoint was wonderful to dive, perfect conditions underwater and also on the boat with that perfect organisation and of course the transfer from the hotel before, even if some hours booked before. My instructor Tony was very helpful, experienced and open minded. Thanks to you too Tony! Last but not least, Simon, thanks for all of your good and safe organisation! Guys, you're really great, thanks a lot again and hope to dive with you soon! Best regards & AlohaRichard_________________________________________Update 20th Oct 2017:Decided one day before in the afternoon to join this great adventure again and had a another very cool and exciting diving trip. Different locations than yesterday, same great boat, same great and nice crew (always very helpful), same perfect instructor as yesterday (many thanks to Klaus again) and a lot of other fishes (also a shark), reefs and also a wreck but ten times bigger as yesterday. It was a great tour guys from Aloha Diving! Thanks again for these amazing two days! Best regards! --------------------------------------------------------------------Fun-Diving with Aloha Diving on 19th Oct 2017I was driving by the way to Rawai, looking for a Diving company in Phuket and saw Aloha Diving. Simon (Part CEO/ very nice and experienced) told me everything what I want to know about Fun Dives and the Advanced Open Water Course, because I made my Open Water 4 weeks ago on Koh Tao. Decided to practice with Fun Dives was a good decision. Klaus, my personal Instructor (very competent and experienced too) told me everything to need about the region, showed me incredible beautiful fishes and as a highlight dived through a old wrack. It was a perfect day, perfect conditions, perfect team, perfect boat with all Inclusive. Fantastic breakfast, lunch, afternoon cakes and Drinks for free. A very big thank you to Simon and Klaus! Hope to see you soon again Guys! It was a pleasure for me!read more

We’ve never thought that diving would be that amazing. We were glad to make this experience at Aloha diving. They were very professional and explained to us everything very well which makes us feel save under water. Also their tank is very beautiful! We’ve had an amazing trip and diving tour as well. We’ve learned a lot! If we ever go back to Pukhet we definitely come back visit them!read more
