Has it been a while since you last dived?
At Kiwidiver we have selected some of the best diving locations around Phuket Island for diving. Beach diving in Phuket is often overlooked in preference of boat diving but it is amazing just how much there is to see just off the local beaches.
While the beaches are only suitable to dive from during peak season (November through April) the marine life is abundant. Ghost pipe fish, Harlequin sweet lips, schooling barracuda are amongst some of the things you can expect to see.
Kiwidiver is constantly exploring new reefs to find good sites to take our guests. Some are remote and require 4wd access but you can be sure your average dive centre doesn’t explore them. Others are popular snorkeling beaches where we share the underwater beauty with other Thailand beach dwellers.
Some of the best diving in Thailand is right of the local Phuket Beaches. You will be amazed at what we can find just of the local beach.
Beach diving is wether dependant and we select the best beach to go to on the morning of the dive based on weather conditions
One of our favorite Phuket beach dive spots, you would be amazed to find the prolific marine life and variety of fish just off one of Phuket’s busiest beaches. With easy access, food, toilets and showers nearby.
Over the Thailand high season this is a popular dive reef and ideal training ground. We do two dives a day with lunch on the beach in between.
Also a favorite for our night dives as there is so much to see when the nocturnal marine life come out to play after dark.
You would be amazed to find the prolific marine life and variety of fish just off one of Phuket's busiest beaches. While we usually dive the north reef the south reef provides a change of scene for those regularly beach diving with us.
A relaxing day at the beach with two dives. A favorite location for Backpackers.
Hidden away in the south of Phuket this site is sheltered when the wind makes our other sites a little difficult. Ao Sane has a restaurant overlooking the beach for relaxing between dives. It is an easy site to dive with a good variety of marine life and easily accessible.
Once upon a time only visited by Backpackers and hikers we now have vehicle access. Ideal for a bimble down the reef or for conducting courses in a relaxed environment.
A new site we have discovered. Requires 20 minutes 4wd down a dirt track through the jungle. We are guaranteed to be the first to dive this reef. We will be mapping and naming this site as part of our next Divemaster internship.
We think this may be called Laem Mum Nok as this is the name of the dirt road we go down to get there. Acccess is not always available to this site.
More info available soon.
The best night diving in Thailand is right off our local Phuket beaches. While it is only available between October and May and dependant on conditions and tides when you get a good dive it is fantastic.
