Thailand Divers in Phuket Thailand
Yes Thailand Divers in Phuket has had a very busy time making big changes. Thailand Divers is now the number 1 center for your holiday to Phuket. For many years we and been the premier center for diving in Thailand but we have expanded greatly. We still go to the best islands in Thailand plus so much more.
We still cover the best and most popular sites like Phi Phi, King Cruiser, Shark Point, Racha Noi and Racha Yai as three dive day trips. We are still running liveaboards to the Similan islands departing EVERY day from 15th October till the 15th May so you dont need to plan your holiday around your similan islands liveabaord dates but you can plan your trip to the similans to fit your holiday. The trip can be overnight, 2 nights, 3 nights or as many nights as you choose. Instead of the boat returning after each trip we keep the boat out there and just bring you out by speed boat to the main liveaboard boat on the first morning and bring you back on the afternoon of the day you want to return. We can even do day trips this way. Then we have other trips that depart to the similan islands in the late afternoon. This gives you an extra night on the boat. Settle in to the cabin, set up the equipment then relax with a sunset dinner as you head out to the start of you similan island adventure.
The Similan islands Thailand offers with no doubt some of the best diving in the world. Crystal clear water even down at 40 meters with the water around 80 degrees all season long. This makes the similan islands diving such a great experience. A typical trip will take in not only the similan islands but also heading north to the Surin islands and if you wish then up in to Burma to dive the Burma banks too.
There are so many things to do in phuket now that dont just include diving in phuket. We offer so much more. Great Phuket snorkel tours to locations away from the crowds too as well as the more popular ones. Phi Phi Bamboo island as always, the three Khai islands, Hong island, Chicken island, Krabi, similan islands, Koh Tachai. Stunning reefs and beaches to explore, tropical island hoping in an island paradise away from the masses. Phuket snorkeling is as good as its diving. There are so many great places to snorkel around the Phuket islands that you will be spoiled for choice.
Now the big new thing is all the Phuket tours available from phuket game fishing tours that come in several packages. From standard day trips that get you trolling for Tuna, hand lines for bottom fishing plus snorkeling too. Then for the people who want the really big stuff we have some of the best game fishing phuket has is just past the phuket diving and snorkel locations where there is a deep shelf that attracts the Black Marlin, dog tooth tuna, Sail fish and the like. Then we have night fishing trips too that are a bit of fun where squid is the main catch.
Take one of the many phuket day trips available. How about a phuket safari into the heart of Phuket and canoe in the mangroves, jeep up into the mountains, elephant trek through the jungle, Ox cart ride to a traditional Thai village and a rice farm, rubber tree tapping and Thai cooking. White water rafting in the mountains, Sea canoeing in the limestone caves in Phang Nga national park, ATV tours, and of course the 2 most popular as always James Bond island and Phi Phi Bambo island.
Then new for this year we are not only doing overnight safaris that involve diving phuket but we now have are offering an over night or 2 night Khao Sok safari trip. This is a great way to get off the Thailand islands and onto the mainland which is just a short ride from phuket. Here we can explore the Khao Sok national park. The Khao sok discovery trip can be an over night trip to explore the jungle by Elephant, canoe and on foot spending the night in a jungle bungalow. Or there is a top 2 day safari that explores the massive lake system by elephant, bamboo raft and long tail boats.
These are great for nature lovers, photographers and people who want to get away from the beaches. Then there is the three day 2 night that combines the jungle and lake safari. This one involves a night in the jungles and a night on a raft bungalow on the lake itself. this is a truly stunning setting.
If you really want some peace and quite many of the tours are available now as private charters. This way you make the plan, you set the start time and return times. You can avoid the crowds and go to your own private beach. We even have a super yacht for charter for that really special day or overnight. You will be the envy of all turning up
Thailand Divers really is a one stop holiday planner right up to the hotel too. The new shop is located just 5 mins from the center of Patong but the street itself (Nanai Road) is quiet enough with excellent resturants, bars to relax in after a great day out. The shop itself is located in what used to be the resturant of a very nice hotel called the Album Loft. Very comfortable and some rooms with their own kitchens, nice pool to cool off in. Not only is Thailand Divers the top phuket dive center but could soon be the top holiday center too.
With all these tours available we still run them all all in the same way.
We collect you from your phuket hotel or guest house phuket and take you to which ever location or tour you like and then return you to the hotel door in the afternoon in time for dinner. Plus we not have gathered a collection of phuket guest houses and patong beach hotels that have been very popular with our customers. all great prices and very good service. All in quiet location that are missed by the masses but all only a few minutes from the main attractions. They are just tucked away from view offering a perfect oasis of calm under a warm tropical sun.
The new shop still has the same instructors and is still English owned and managed as it always has been. We still offer the best diving in phuket, the best boats. We just thought that this low season that we can offer more than just diving. We can bring the same level of service to so many more things as well. So now when you come to phuket thailand you can really get a taste for the whole of Thailand rather than just phuket scuba diving. Thailand Divers now is one stop shop for all your holiday fun on phuket thailand.

Most people think of Phuket Thailand for two or three reasons. Yes Phuket is home to some of the greatest scuba diving Thailand has to offer.
The Phuket diving is in both the gulf of Thailand with places like Phi Phi being one of the more popular of the Phuket tours and out in the Andaman ocean. The Andaman ocean is home to some of the best diving in the world with the Similan islands just one and a half hours off the coast. The Similans are best done on a Similan islands liveabaord or a diving " safari" where you have 2-4 days on the boat and then you can really explore in style.
Then there are the perfect beaches that surround the islands in the area with Phuket itself being the largest of the Phuket islands. Thousands of people come to these tropical shores each year just to relax, grab some winter sun, swim in the warm waters and enjoy a break on the best islands in Thailand.
Then of course there are the party goers. Phuket has long been a place where you can party the night away in the party towns like Patong beach. Patong and Phuket unlike Ibiza is not full of drunk Brits being sick and fighting. Phukets mix of bars, shows, live music, coffee houses and restaurants means everyone can mix together no matter what your choice of nightlife. The quality of service does vary from bar to bar but mostly they are all friendly, inexpensive and most are looking for regular customers. Then the quality of live music in Phuket is well above most countries back home to the extent that not only do they do requests from people from all over the world but they do almost perfect covers. No matter what your taste of food, music or entertainment then its all close by in Phuket.
Now we move away from the " beach resort" to an area that most do not even know exists. Just north of Phuket is several large national parks. This area is home to great lakes, rivers, mountains, jungle and almost unlimited wildlife. As the national park ares are so close they almost link together makes for a very large area to explore. From the Phang Nga national park, then Khao Lak national park which runs into Khao Sok national park. This means that there are great Phuket safari tours right on your doorstep.
The best of these is the Khao Sok safari as this can be an over night trip or a 3 day two night adventure. The two day one night trip can be either a jungle safari or a lake / river safari as Khao Sok hosts a massive lake that is there to be discovered by long tail boat, canoe and on foot and is home to some stunning wildlife. The Jungle safari is done by elephant, on foot and Bamboo raft with you spending the night is comfortable bungalows. Where on the lake safari you stay on bungalows built on stilts on the lake.
Then the best options for a really great phuket safari is to do a three day two night and combine the jungle and lake safari. If you are a photographer or nature lover then this will be a trip of a lifetime. Just remember the battery charger and spare battery as you will take thousands of photos over the three day. Plus on both two day and three safaris then you also get a night trek which can provide some stunning wildlife photos. Khao sok discovery really is a trip not to be missed.
Then a bit closer to home is the Khao lak safari day trip. this trip will get you the jungle elephant trekking, bamboo rafting and other sightseeing locations including the temple and caves and you will still be home in time for dinner and a night out.
For all these and any other of the phuket day trips just go online and take a look at Thailand Divers site and chat online with them. From James Bond island speed boat tour, white water rafting, phuket game fishing to the Phi Phi bamboo which is one of the more popular of the snorkeling in phuket tours. Then all manor of diving trips for those who want to learn to dive phuket or get their PADI open water course phuket then its all here.
You are picked up from your Phuket hotel and whisked away on any number of adventures and then you know that you can be back in your patong beach hotel or phuket guest house in time for tea. Then if you choose then you can take a longer safari both on land or on water, diving or by boat. we can even collect you from your guest house phuket and return you to another phuket hotel after the trip so you can continue you adventures. Thailand really is a dream holiday destination for both water lovers and land lubbers alike.
