Snorkelling & Diving

Hi everyone

Just wondering who is the best company to go for a snorkelling tour with leaving in 2 weeks!!!! So excited.

Also do u need a license to scuba dive in Thailand? Or can you just do it?

To go diving uou either need a license or you can do a discover scuba diving experience. This is a 1 or 1,5 day prorgramme where you learn the basics and under supervision of an instructor will make (normally) 2 dives.

We are total beginners, and whilst I'm not a great one for it, Mr Mitch has done a beginners dive course a couple of times with Phuket Scuba Club. They were really helpful, and the dive master that accomandied him was really friendly pointing out some nice sights that as a snorkeller I missed - so now he has boasting rights to a sea horse!

I would contact them http://www.phuket-scuba-club.com/ or just pop along to their beach shop right at the southern end of Karon beach (which has some nice snorkelling too) their dive shop has a blue roof and is next to a great restaurant. They also have a little shop in Kata, again next to a nice restaurant, where they meet up in the evening, so there is a social side too.

Well worth giving them a shout!

After reading a post a last year we did a snorkelling trip off southern Karon Beach with Phuket Scuba Club. Like Mitch has already said, it was a great experience!
