Phuket is the «pearl» for the Princess Beatrice  

Phuket Island is one of the popular resorts in Thailand and one of the well-known diving places in Andaman Sea. Phuket is called the «Pearl of the South». Celebs often come here just to have a look at the colorful underwater kingdom. Thus, quite recently the Princess Beatrice of Great Britain had a provisional diving lesson in Phuket. You will certainly like diving lessons since they are easy and pleasant to anyone, from a newcomer to experienced divers for there very different conditions offered to satisfy tastes of many. Those who like adventures will like gardens of soft and solid corals, caves and sunken ships; the ones who love to be trained diving will get to see sandy bays with shallow water. By the way, it is far more comfortable to get to many other popular dive sites in Thailand.  You may dive from the shore and the dive-boat within the frames of one- or days-long safari along neighboring islands.  Under the water you will see Tiger Sharks in Shark Point and graceful devilfish in Racha Noi apart from runs of small colorful fishes and schools of sea pikes. Also you will find it interesting to dive to the talismans against tsunami mounted on the bottom.  

Similan Islands - high-class diving in Thailand

According to the ‘Skin Diving Magazine', Similan Islands are included in the Top Ten Most Beautiful Places in the World and it is the dive-site No. 1 in Thailand. This is the group of nine desert islands lying not far away from the border of Thai and Burma waters. Similan Islands were awarded the status of the National Marine Park. And it is no wonder why; the local coral reefs are approximately 5 thousand years old! This is the oldest coral masses in Thailand. The main peculiarity for diving on the Similan Islands is fantastical subwater landscape, in particular enormous sunken granite boulders and rocks that create quaint arks, caves and tunnels covered by the brilliant carpet of soft corals. And the additional advantage is the perfect visibility and ideal conditions for underwater photo shooting.  The frequent guests of the Similan Islands are tiger sharks and whitetip reef sharks, Napoleon wrasses, shockfishes, schools of barracuda and tunny fish. And there is the only disappointing moment- there are no hotels and the ground amusements. And it is possible to get here only by dive-boats during safari trips.

Phi-Phi Islands used to be as the decorations for divers while shooting the «Beach», Hollywood movie starring DiCaprio

Phi-Phi Islands won the fame of the most picturesque islands in Thailand, and very likely that in the whole world. They look very astonishing under water and above water equally. From the above you will enjoy affecting rocks, tropical jungles, and Paradise beaches with white fine sand polished by the pure blue water. It is the perfect decoration to any Hollywood movies! From the beneath heughs are covered with soft corals, enigmatic limestone caves, runs of motley fish, bushes of gorgonian and other solid corals. The dream of the scuba diver only! The most popular places for diving at Phi Phi is the Koh Bidah Nok and Koh Bida Noi, which are ideal for diving by the walls (so called wall diving) with the chance to admire a choice of corals and  run of barracudas. You will very often meet here tortoises and sometimes tiger sharks. Those who love diving into caves will appreciate the Wang Long Bay nearby one of the famous and the most beautiful subwater caves in the South-East Asia. Yet, Maya Bay attracts visitors and predominantly divers not only with its alive underwater life (it provides really wonderful conditions for a fresher), but with above-water life as well. And the famous movie «Beach» was shot exactly in this place with starring Leonardo DiCaprio.

Krabi - in search of adventures by Jean-Claude Van Damme

The Krabi province is like Phuket without any tourist ballyhoos, that Phuket as it was a few decades ago. All is changed in our life, certainly, and here the large hotels, restaurants and diving-centers are gradually erected, but exactly in Krabi you will find the eternal nature of Thailand non-touched by human beings, namely the pure sea, lonely coves, bushes of coconut palms, virginal corals and desert emerald islands. They say that this area of the South Thailand was opened by the brave Sindbad The Sailor and a while later the movie «In Search of Adventures» with starring Jean-Claude Van Damme  was shot here. So, if you want to feel like you are an adventurer welcome to Krabi! And yet, Krabi is an excellent place for a quiet and relaxing Krabi-diving and trainings on this kind of sports. There are over 200 species of fish and approximately 80 sorts of corals here. Enjoy seeing tiger sharks warming in the shallow water in the mornings, small groups of quids, groupers and lobsters, runs of barracudas.  The special rocky relief of Krabi is liked by many tourists. On the surface rock climbers choose the limestone rocks while under water the divers enjoy pictorial grottoes and splits with crowds of corals. We advise the rest in Krabi even to those who are afraid of diving but who would like to see sharks clearly and if you are lucky you may observe these killers while swimming on the water surface with the mask and a tube.

Koh Samui is the time of «no season!»

The Samui Island in the Siam Bay yields a bit to Phuket in popularity though there are all attributes of high-class resort, like luxury hotels of popular top brands ('Le Meridien', 'Imperial'), joyful night life, extensive sightseeing program and, certainly, the developed industry of diving. The submarine near Samui and neighboring islands, Koh Tao, for instance, is rich in soft and solid corals, runs of motley fishes and pictorial subwater rocks. A pleasant feature of the local diving is frequent «games» with the whale shark, an enormous but harmless and very magnificent. But the most important activity here is the chance to dive in summer times, when there is a rainy season in Phuket and Similan Islands. So, do you have your flippers and a mask ready for diving? You only need to go and buy a ticket for trip and go to win tropical seas and lands of Thailand! Just go ahead!
