One of the leading scuba diving tour providers in Phuket uses a private yacht specifically designed for scuba diving and where the satisfaction, safety and comfort of divers are the main concern.

Phuket is also a great place to become a certified diver.

Some companies offer comprehensive PADI 5 star scuba diving courses as well. This way, you can make the most of the experience and be able to explore the underwater world safely and more conveniently.

Phuket's dive sites are examples of a diverse underwater topography that ranges from island reef slopes to submerged pinnacles and limestone islands that resemble cliffs. Scuba diving trips let you see and explore them throughout the year. You do not have to worry about coming in for diving after the summer or during winter.

The best time to go diving in Phuket is from November to May because it is the time when the sea is calmer and rainfall is limited. Phuket's average air temperature is 28 degrees Celsius, and its water temperature averages at 27 degrees Celsius. You can come to Phuket in the end of May to October to explore certain dive sites, too. Off-season has southwest monsoons that cause rainfall and strong winds, but most dive sites are still accessible, sheltered from prevailing winds, and close to the mainland. Just be sure that you are going with a reputable scuba diving operator in the island to ensure safety.
