Phuket Dive Sites
Racha Yai Island (Koh Raya Yai)
An excellent Phuket dive destination for relaxing dives in crystal clear water. There are several dive sites to choose from along the east coast of Racha Island plus Siam Bay and Bungalow Bay. Racha diving is generally easy. The shallow reefs slope gently from the beaches.
These dive sites are also great for snorkelers and for training dives. We teach our Open Water students and Discover Scuba Divers at Racha Yai Island. You can expect to see large schools of fish, barracuda, stingrays, giant moray eels, lionfish, scorpion fish, turtles and much much more. The coral is mainly hard coral including staghorn coral, cabbage coral, fire coral and brain coral to name just a few. Gorgonian sea fans cling to granite boulders.
Further south of Racha Yai is the less visited and smaller Racha Noi island. This granite boulder island is edged by small idyllic bays with shallow reefs that offer relaxed diving in clear water on healthy coral reefs. Dive on the south or north tips of Racha Noi however and it’s a different story. Strong currents at North Point and the South Plateau can make the diving challenging but the conditions also attract the big fish. We regularly see manta rays at the south plateau and schools of chevron barracuda at North Point.
Named for the Leopard sharks that live here and identified by a small lighthouse on a rock. It doesn’t look like much from above but underwater it’s paradise. Phuket Scuba Diving Tours mainly dive Shark Point 1 and Shark Point 2, both pinnacles covered in soft corals and sea fans.
These rocks are absolutely covered in fish. Leopard sharks can be seen on the edge of the reefs, normally resting on the sandy bottom. Lionfish and scorpion fish are seen in and around barrel sponges. Stingrays are seen in the sandy passage between the two rocks. Divers can see anything from seahorses to whale sharks at Shark Point.
Close to Shark Point, Anemone reef is a pinnacle that starts at just a few metres below the surface and submerges down to about 35 metres. It is completely covered in soft corals, sea fans and anemones. It is an explosion of colour and life with reef fish everywhere. Leopard sharks can also be seen at Anemone reef and Turtles are common. Join now our Phuket Scuba Diving Tours.
Phuket Scuba Diving Tours to King Cruiser, Phuket’s biggest and best wreck dive. The King Cruiser hit Anemone Reef in 1997 and sank shortly afterwards. She now sits upright in 32 metres of water and is a fish magnet. At 85 metres long she has plenty to explore. With the shallowest point of the wreck at 17m and occasional strong currents the King Cruiser is not a dive for beginners. It’s an ideal dive for PADI Advanced courses.
Doc Mai Island is a favourite dive site for critter hunters. Dive slowly along the wall and look in every sea fan and every rocky crevice. You can find seahorses, harlequin ghost pipe fish, white eyed moray eels and much much more.
Phuket Scuba Diving Tours to Phi Phi Island. Phi Phi is beautiful above and below the water. The stunning limestone cliffs that are home to trees and birds above are home to coral and fish below. The nutrient rich waters provide home for a huge variety of marine life.
You can see it all at Phi Phi from the smallest critter to the biggest whale shark. Leopard sharks and Black tip reef sharks are common. Bamboo sharks can be seen under rocks. We also see a lot of turtles and sea snakes. We dive at Koh Bida Nok, Koh Bida Nai, Maya Wall and Loh Soma Bay. Phi Phi is also great for snorkelers.
Between November and April it is possible to do day trip dives from Phuket to the Similan Islands. If you have time we recommend a Thailand liveaboard to the Similan Islands. But if you want to dive Thailand’s best dive sites in a day then we can arrange that for you. The Similan Islands has the clearest water and the most prolific marine life. Koh Bon is home to Manta Rays.
Phuket Beach Dives / Longtail Boat Dives
For those with less than a day to spend on a dive boat we can arrange dives to local Phuket reefs from the beach or in a traditional Thai longtail boat. Ask us for details.
