Phuket Dive Sites
The main reason Iain and Oui both got hooked on Phuket was because of the large diversity of dive sites in and around the Phuket area. Within Phuket itself there are a great range of underwater landscapes: fascinating hard coral reefs, limestone formations covered in beautiful soft corals and anemones, large rock formations and even some wrecks!
What makes these dive areas more interesting is that each type of dive site contains different marine species. At the hard coral sites, schooling barracuda and stingrays can be seen, at the soft coral sites discover interesting macro such as seahorses and nudibranches. The wrecks are home to batfish and often large schools of fish such as yellow snappers.
Phuket dive sites are suitable for all level of divers except for the King Cruiser wreck. For this site we recommend a minimum of 15 dives or Advanced Open Water. Read on to find out more about what you can discover in Phuket.
