This is why I Love phuket Thailand and the Similan Islands

This is why I love phuket thailand. There is so much to do if you like adventure and a busy holiday. There is scuba diving in phuket, shopping centers bowling and 1,000s of bars and places to eat.

But there are also so many places to go just to get away for some peace and quiet as well. Miles of empty beach. Isolated places ideal for scuba diving in phuket.

Friendly locals and stunning warm blue ocean always ending with awesome sunsets.

Tiny places to eat away from the crowds and the menu is what was caught from the boat that afternoon. Scuba diving phuket is just one way for you to get away from the madness of the holiday resorts and discover one of the truly great countries on this world and the friendliest people on earth. Thailand Divers offers it all. What a stunning country. phuket thailand so much more than just diving.

What better place is there to Discover Scuba diving in phuket. The sea is so warm and clear that even the most nervous person forgets their fears as there is so much to see under the water. In phuket scuba diving is made easy and so much fun. You dont even need to be able to swim to take part in this program as it is not a license course. We teach you the basics, some safety skills and the safety theory then take you into the tropical waters with an expert instructor. The key is the instructor. The instructor for this must be experienced and not a gap year student doing something fun or a high season worker. They must be a career instructor who knows the dive sites and how to make the day safe and fun. For teaching then the more experience the better and as all Thailand Divers instructors are experienced career instructors then you can be sure of always getting the best. This latest review says it all. There is no better place than to learn to scuba dive in Phuket
“Simply Amazing!”  5 of 5 stars
I had contacted Thailand Divers through Facebook prior to our holiday & they were really helpful! They gave me all the info I needed as a first time diver & were really easy to talk to! My girlfriend & I chose to do 3 dives at Phi Phi & when we arrived at the pier we were instantly greeted by our amazing instuctor Mike. He took us to the boat where we had a short briefing about discover scuba (as i said, we were first time divers) before getting some food before our first dive. Once we were in the water & learning all the basic techniques & skills that we needed to know. My Girlfriend was unable to do the skills at first & began freaking out saying she couldn’t do it, but Mike reassured her that she could. He took the extra time needed making sure she was comfortable in the water & even if we didn’t have as much time to actually dive down on our first dive, it didn’t matter. What mattered was the fact that Mike stayed patient with us the whole time while we were learning the skills & let us learn at our own pace so that we could enjoy the process of it all. Once we got to our second dive we were much more confident & spent most of the dive under water getting down to our 12 meter limit. I cant put it into words how amazing & serene it is watching all the fish, turtles, & other marine life just swimming & watching how they live under there. Its really something you have to experience for yourself. Overall we had an amazing day & seen so much marine life, we seen 3 turtles, 2 black tip reef sharks, an eel & a huge variety of fish! Wish we could do it again already! highly recommend this company to everyone!! Thanks again for the amazing day guys!!
So when you want to discover the underwater world when in phuket scuba diving with the best makes all the difference. Thailand Divers only uses experienced instructors then you will be sure to get the best instructors and  best training when diving Phuket.  The great tropical reefs are with in easy reach of all which makes Phuket diving one of the greatest places on earth to dive.

A big congratulations to Corey Parker on achieving his 30 years of outstanding service award as a scuba diving instructor. Corey has been here on phuket scuba diving now for a good few years so really does know how to get the most out of every dive and every diver. Scuba diving in phuket is one of the best locations in the world so it only seems right to book one of the most experienced instructors around to show you all there is to see. Every student he has passes with ease and everyone who dives with him comes home with a smile and some amazing stories to tell. title
Corey is one if not the most experienced instructor scuba diving phuket. But not only scuba diving but sky diving too. He is also the only person that has been allowed by the governor to sky dive over Patong which is the islands priemiere party town and land in the center of the beach right at the end the famous Bangla road in the middle of the busiest weeks of the year.
Well done mate. No instructors are as experienced in fun and living the dream. Corey has been with Thailand Divers now for a good few years and its great that he is planing on being here on phuket thailand for a few more years yet.
titleThailand Divers is lucky to have such a high standard of instructor. All our instructors have years of experience behind them as we want every student to get the best, every certified diver to dive with the best and every instructor to get their 30 year award. Every dive center has gap year students and back packers passing through but what counts is the experience and relaxed style to teach even the most nervous diver to relax and enjoy the day. That only comes with experience. All our instructors are full time proffessionals like Corey who have made enjoying life their full time job.
So next time you are in phuket scuba diving then get in touch and Corey can show you round real close to see all there is to see.Phuket thailand has some amazing diving and a few amazing instructors too but none have the experience and style that 30 years in the industry can bring. Well done mate.title
So when planing your next trip consider phuket thailand as a top location. If you are already here and lookig for something to do then scuba diving in phuket is a great day out and you may find you get addicted and then it can be you that is getting your 30 year award one day. If its Corey teaching you then the chances rise dramatically as his enthusiasm will rub off on you for sure as it will with all the instructors that are scuba diving in phuket scuba divingwith Thailand Divers. Well done Corey.
A quiet minute to relax and catch some sun.

You never know a phuket diving course may just change you life forever. here in phuket thailand we have warm clear waters perfect for scuba diving. Shallow reefs teeming with life (ideal for wooden treasure ships to hit and sink). In phuket scuba diving is well worth doing as its cheap to learn to dive in Phuket and the rewards are amazing even if you dont find a treasure a ship.

 Is there any reason that the next big find can not be you. You can never find this if you do not know how to dive. Learn to scuba dive Phuket and who knows????

Spanish galleon was sunk by British guns off Cartagena in 1708 as it sailed with emeralds, two tons of platinum and personal wealth of the Viceroy of Peru – making her the richest treasure ship lost in the western hemisphere.

Colombia has found a Spanish treasure galleon that sank three hundred years ago off the coast of Cartagena, reputedly loaded with emeralds, gold and silver coins.
It could reveal one of the great lost treasure chests, with valuables worth as much as $17 billion (£11 billion).
The remains of the Spanish galleon San Jose, which sunk off the Caribbean coast of Cartagena de Indias, Colombia.

There are still thousands of treasure ships lost that are just waiting to reveal themselves to us. Still billions of pounds of gold, silver and jewels just waiting to be found. If you discover scuba diving phuket then who knows what will happen.

When the San Jose set sail from South America in 1708 she was carrying riches destined for King Philip V’s war chest as he fought Britain in the War of Succession.
She never arrived. She was sunk after a 90-minute battle with HMS Expedition, part of a four-ship squadron hunting the Spanish treasure fleet in the southern Caribbean.

Commodore Charles Wager described the close quarters broadsides – and said the San Jose exploded with such intensity he could feel the heat from his own ship.
“I believe the ship’s side blew out, for she caused a sea that came in our ports,” he wrote. “She immediately sank with all her riches.”

Most ship lost are in shallow waters. They may have hit a reef or rocks just off the coast. They may have been attacked after leaving port before getting into open waters and up to full speed. Not many ships were lost in open sea as there is nothing for them to hit and far harder for another ship to find them in the open ocean. Once a ship is under full sail then its far harder for another ship to catch them which is why most ships were sunk just off the coast as they were far easier to find. These shallow waters just off the coast are the perfect places for scuba diving too,  just like the reefs of the Similans.

Some reports said she was carrying 116 chests of emeralds, two tons of platinum and the personal wealth of the Viceroy of Peru – making her the richest treasure ship ever lost in the western hemisphere.
The location of the San Jose has been known since 1981 but efforts to explore the ship and salvage her treasure have been hampered by a dispute between the government and Sea Search Armada, an American company, over rights to the proceeds.

In 2011 an American court declared the galleon to be the property of the Colombian state.
The San Jose is estimated to be one of more than 1,000 galleons and merchant vessels to have sunk among Colombia’s coral reefs.
Earlier this year, treasure hunters said they had found $4.5m of Spanish gold coins off the coast of Florida, part of another of King Philip’s treasure fleets shipwrecked in a hurricane while en route from Havana to Spain. There are stories and port records that mention European pirates operating around Phuket and the West of Thailand.  There are many reefs around the Similan islands which will be a perfect hideout for pirates.

So next time you are thinking of taking a holiday then why not tale a look at phuket thailand. Even if you have you Open Water or even Advanced license. What about a Wreck course so you will know how to explore a new wreck in safety. Wreck diving is fun anyway.

Then if your new wreck may have something of value that you need to bring to the surface. Search and recovery will get you lifting things from the sea bed. This again is of use. Everyday cameras, phones, watches, rings and wallets are dropped off the boats. Search and recovery will teach you various search patterns to maximize your chances of finding them again.

Thailand divers has been teaching scuba diving in Thailand  for over 14 years now and has vast experience diving in the waters off phuket. diving in phuket is easy to complete all courses in the warm clear waters that will at the very least give you a great dive. When in phuket scuba diving will change your life even if you dont find the next treasure ship.
