Phuket is often referred to as the ‘Pearl of the South’ and for scuba divers it’s the jewel in the crown of the Andaman Sea. This island paradise lies only 8 degrees north of the equator; it enjoys a tropical climate with average water temperature of 28°C/78°F and has an amazing variety of aquatic life.
For divers, the true treasures of the Andaman Sea are hidden below the surface, where the vast panorama explodes into a virtual symphony of colors and corals. The warm, clear water draws large schools of tropical fish, manta rays, and the awe-inspiring whale shark. The wealth of aquatic life combined with good visibility will delight underwater photographers and marine naturalists.
World class diving, superb scenery, great entertainment and beautiful luxury holiday villas – Phuket, Thailand has all the right ingredients for a perfect diving holiday.
