Experience scuba diving with Phuket Scuba Club during your next holiday in Phuket and explore the wonders of the world underwater.
We did, and found it to be one of the best things to do in Phuket.
Now we can't wait to return to go scuba diving with the professionally run team again..
As first time divers, this was a fantastic experience and one that we hope many others visitors will also discover when travelling to Phuket.
Phuket Scuba Club is owned and operated by Chantal and her late husband Kevan; from the very first time we met Chantal and Kevan some years back, we found them both to be warm and very welcoming.
Chantal knows everything there is to know about scuba diving and knows the Island well, as she has lived and worked on the Island for 22 years.
When we decided that we were going to go scuba diving on our most recent holiday to Phuket, we contacted Chantal, and she suggested that we would be best to do the “Discover scuba diving program”.
This program is specifically designed for novice divers, and is an excellent program which allows you to explore the underwater world directly off the sands of either Kata or Karon Beaches.
Safety is paramount; and the scuba diving club maintains strict training and safety standards with a team of professional and highly experienced diving instructors.
Even though the club has strict
safety standards, the diving instructors have a wonderful way of making
your dive a fun and interesting experience.
The Scuba Club offers a range of Padi and SSI scuba diving courses for
all levels of experience, from beginners like us, to courses that are
suited for more experienced divers.
The scuba club also has scuba diving day trips to some of the best dive sites offshore from Phuket, including the beautiful Racha Islands and Phi Phi Islands.
Also available are a range of live-aboard scuba diving cruises, these cruises can take you to other
areas in Thailand including the Similian Islands, Surin Islands and Burma .
Phuket Scuba Club have relocated to Shanti Lodge Guest House in Chalong.
Address: 1/2 Soi Bangrae Choafa West, Ao Chalong, Muang, Phuket.
Prior to their relocation Phuket Scuba Club was located at Kata and another office was directly on the beach at the southern end of Karon Beach.
From our own personal experience, and the amount of return customers that we met during our time at the scuba diving club.
feel that we can recommend the professional services and extremely
qualified diving instructors at Phuket Scuba Club for anyone who would
like to go diving while in Phuket.
