Phuket is one of the top 10 diving destinations not just in Asia but in the world. Experienced divers, as well as beginners, will appreciate diving attractions at Phi Phi, the King Cruiser wreck near Anemone Reef, and the excitement of Shark Point.
Scuba diving activities really take place far out into the sea. To truly enjoy the very best diving sites, you will need to hire a very fast boat to take you on day trips to the Similan Islands and then back to Phuket. You can enjoy the best scuba diving in Phuket.

This can be costly as you will likely hire the boat for several days. Your dive time will also be limited because the travel time from Phuket will eat up a huge part of the day.
The other (and often better) alternative is to join a liveaboard for several days. A typical liveaboard trip that lasts 4 days covers 450 kilometers or so, and the prices are surprisingly affordable.
Whatever type of Phuket diving holiday you choose, it's a good idea to book early so you can get the best deals. But if you really don't have the time to plan your Phuket holiday, don't worry-the place is very tourist friendly, and you should have no problems buying an assortment of diving daytrips upon arrival.
