Scuba Diving Kamala: Diving Kamala Phuket
If you’re planning on scuba diving Kamala there are a couple of things to think about. For a start the diving around Kamala is only available during the high season months between November and April. Even then, the dive sites are very limited and simply don’t compare with what’s on offer off the south coast of Phuket at sites like Racha Noi, Shark Point, and the dive sites around Koh Phi Phi. If Diving Kamala Phuket is on your scuba diving Phuket agenda, then bear in mind that all of the other Phuket dive sites are also available to you, and not just during high season, but all year round.
Also, take a PADI open water course in Kamala and you’ll get just the basic four open water dives at local Kamala reefs just off the beach. All dives are by long-tail boats and no breakfast or lunch is included. All PADI open water courses with Super Divers Phuket are from large comfortable dive boats, include breakfast, lunch and refreshments, and also include at least one extra dive, usually two. Free t-shirts are also included with every course.
The PADI open water course has four open water dives as standard, but we like to offer our guests something extra, and two extra dives for free can really make a difference when it comes to increasing diver confidence, scuba diving skill, and as well as enjoyment. We’ll also get our students out for a couple of dives to Koh Phi Phi where it’s easy to find Sharks and more.
Scuba diving around Kamala is ideal if you just want a couple of quick dives and aren’t interested in seeing Sharks, but for the better diving and Phuket scuba diving wrecks, you need to head to the classy dive sites further away which offer a better chance to see the big stuff and usually have much better visibility. Super Divers is the only Patong dive centre to include complimentary pick ups for our guests in Kamala, and remember, the Kamala PADI open water course will only include four dives whereas the Super Divers open water course, will include at least one extra dive for free, usually two.
