Cuttlefish on Richelieu Rock
The best scuba diving in Thailand
is to be found off the West coast in the Andaman Sea. With its warm waters crammed full of colourful hard and soft corals, rocky swim-throughs and caverns, the Andaman Sea
offers some of the most varied marine life and dive sites in the world!
Phuket, Phi Phi, Khao Lak and Krabi are probably the most popular resort locations for diving holidays. Phuket is central to all the dive sites
with the Similan Islands
easily accessible to the North and then Phi Phi Islands, Racha Islands and other local dive sites accessible to the South.
The biggest draw to this area is definitely the choice of Thailand liveaboard trips
that run from October to May each year offering the best of Thailand's dive sites
in one trip combination of dive-eat-sleep, with nothing more to think about. 100% best way to relax and dive the sites
Some liveaboard boats also have monthly liveaboard trips to Burma
during the winter months. If you are looking for a new diving adventure with world-class dive sites then this is definitely a place to explore!
are Thailand's top diving
destination and are preferably dived from a liveaboard but are also easily accessible by day trip from Khao Lak.
The most famous Thailand dive site of all has to be Richelieu Rock
and its reputation for whale shark sightings. Although you are not guaranteed to see a whale shark, this site is so varied; you can dive it over and over and always find something new from tiny seahorses, to cuttle fish, to octopus and barracuda, all the way through to whale shark. It's a photographers dream but the big question will remain, do you take macro lens or wide angle? It is a tough decision because Richelieu Rock
really has it all.
