Diving in Phuket – Explore Exotic Landscapes under the Andaman Sea

A scuba diving vacation in Phuket is perfect for many reasons as Thailand is known for having the most amazing dive spots in the world located in the Andaman Sea, along the west coast. In fact, if you wish to explore all the dive sites in Phuket, you would need more than several vacation days.

All the dive sites are full of diversity and beauty to be seen, with a habitat of marine life, rare creatures, and colorful coral formations waiting to be discovered. All of which are combined with crystal clear waters and warm weather to soothe your mind.

Best Time to Dive in Phuket

Without a doubt, Phuket is an all-year-round scuba destination for seasoned divers and beginners where divers would book a Diving resort in Phuket and explore diving spots during their stay because there is always some good diving to be enjoyed.

However, the high diving season here is between November to April, during the dry season when there is minimal chance of rain and storms. The sea is mostly flat, the sun is shining, and the water is a beautiful blue. In contrast, the low season for diving is between May to October, so that you can enjoy a quieter diving experience.

Best Dive Sites in Phuket You Need to Visit

The Pearl of the Andaman Sea is full of incredible dive sites; some are near the beaches, while more exotic underwater landscapes are further into the ocean, but there is always a convenient boat trip to take you there.

Here are the 5 dive sites in Phuket we recommend:

1.Shark Point

This is one of Phuket’s best and most popular dive sites, located close to the anemone reef and the king cruiser wreckage, about 28 k.m. east of Phuket. The site has several underwater pinnacles where you can see an array of corals, various schooling fishes, and the leopard shark and bamboo shark roaming the area, hence the name Shark Point.

2.Anemone Reef

A limestone pinnacle is located only a few hundred meters away from Shark Point. In the shallow area, you will find a carpet of majestic sea anemones along with pink and purple corals. The deeper area of this reef presents a lot of soft corals and sea fans where you can find many smaller creatures like seahorses, ghost pipefish, and a wide variety of marine life.

3.Racha Yai and Racha Noi

Racha Yai is the largest part of Racha Island and it hosts several dive sites with a wide selection of attractions to see underwater. Starting from hard and soft corals, fishes such as garden eels, blue-spotted stingrays, and a school of pelagic fishes tend to make an appearance.

Racha Noi is the smaller of the island and it is uninhabited. It is the perfect diving spot for seasoned divers, while the shallow bay is a good place for beginners to practice diving. Here, you can observe sea dwellers such as the manta rays and other smaller schools of fish.

4.Phi Phi Islands

Phi Phi Islands or Koh Phi Phi comprises 6 smaller islands – with colossal limestone monoliths rising straight from the sea as their famous landmark. Under the surface, the island offers a wealth of sea life, from small fishes, sharks to a good chance to spot juvenile turtles.

5.King Cruiser

The King Cruiser wreck was a car ferry that sank in 1997. The site is to the east of Shark Point and Anemone Reef. Since then, the King Cruiser has become an artificial reef for many sea lives. Schools of snappers fish sit around the shelter of the wreck, along with lionfish and scorpionfish.

With all the amazing dive sites around Phuket, it is recommended that you book a diving resort in Phuket before starting your diving journey, such as the Hyatt Phuket, a 5-star hotel in Phuket that is always ready to tend to all your needs.
