Phuket Scuba Diving Packages

Package 1 - Superior 6 day Liveaboard

Cabin: twin bed on middle deck, with sea views, en-suite and minibar

Destination: Hin Daeng, Hin Muang, Koh Ha and Koh Phi Phi, then Similan Islands, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai, Surin & Richelieu Rock

Koh Similan is indisputably the most beautiful group of dive sites in Thailand and one of the best areas for diving in the world.

Richelieu Rock rates as one of the best places in the world for swimming with whale sharks. Sightings last high season occurred 80% of the time, with the best time is between February and April.

Koh Tachai is great for manta ray encounters.

Hin Daeng - Hin Muang is your best chance to see grey reef sharks, patrolling the walls. Besides that, it's also the second home in Thailand for whale sharks and manta rays. Dive Hin Muang and you'll experience the thrill of diving Thailand's highest vertical wall. Look out into the blue to catch sight of Mantas performing their loop-the-loops and gracefully gliding all around you.

Koh Ha is a superb cavern dive, especially if you make the dive first thing in the morning, when the sunrise is captured in brilliant emerald light through the cavern entrance.

"... Please pass on my thanks to the crew of the Colona VI for an excellent 6 day trip ... The food was excellent as good as any food served in the expensive hotels ... The captain and the rest of the crew were helpful and friendly ... Last but not least, special thanks to Martin, Jennie and especially Raoul who were always friendly helpful and above all made the diving safe and enjoyable ... I would recommend the Colona boats to anyone who was visiting Thailand and hope that I may have the opportunity to return in the future and dive with the Colona crew again ..." - Dan Carpenter - USA
