We recently dove with Phuket Dive Tours aboard the Mermaid. The day was well organized, and the provided transport was comfortable and easy. The boat was comfortable and organized, the food was great, and the crew was extremely helpful in all aspects of the dive. The dives were amazing.

We had the great pleasure of diving with Jon Parr at King Cruiser, Shark Point, and Koh Doc Mai.

Jon is extremely methodical and gave us the most thorough dive briefings we’ve had so far in the whole of our diving journey (Advanced Open Water for 2 years now). His detailed mapping, game plan, and contingency planning gave us the utmost confidence going into the dive. Where we are sometimes nervous going into the first dive of a day, with Jon we had full reassurance with made us energized and excited.

During the dives, he executed exactly to plan, and communicated clearly during potential branches in the plan, so we knew exactly where we were in the dive, and what was coming next. He also takes amazing photos, and does a great job of pointing out hard to see sea life sightings and picture opportunities while keeping safety at the top priority. It is clear he takes great pride in giving each and every diver the safest and most enjoyable experience, and we would highly recommend him to guide you at the Phuket dive sites.

Phuket Dive Tours; where to start. We travelled for 3 months and by far this was one of the best experiences we encountered. From the start, when we entered the shop l, we were greeted with so much warmth and care. Benz was so welcoming and provided us with great details about scuba diving. Benz even took us up to see David and the other instructors before making the decision to get our scuba diving license. David and the team provided us with so much information, which made us feel so comfortable about committing to the scuba diving course. We never felt forced to take the course but instead felt guided and at ease. For the course, our instructor was Beto who made the course itself so enjoyable. Beto is so knowledgeable, supportive, and overall just such a great instructor. Beto went out of his way to make sure that everyone personally felt comfortable and was doing okay. Beto was the reason that each day we felt confident and comfortable in the course. We can’t say enough positive things about Beto, if you get a chance to suggest an instructor, I would 100% recommend Beto. At the end of each day David greeted us at the boat and asked us if the equipment was good (which it was!) and if we were enjoying the course. This goes to show how much care is given to each student. Overall Phuket Dive Tours is such a pleasant place and if you are on the edge, I would suggest to just do it (you won’t regret it)! Thank you Phuket Dive Tours and everyone who made our diving course so special. P.S: take the catamaran: it a small group of people and in a nicer boat. The boat crew were so pleasant, wonderful, and went out of their way to ensure that guests had the best experience.

I did my SSI certification with PDT 3 years ago and haven't dived since. I was pleased with them the first time so I figured I re-book with them for 3 boat dives + refresher course. I am happy to say their quality was top notch from what I remembered! Tim, my diving instructor was, very calm, knowledgeable, and fun. We performed different skills and I was able to feel comfortable despite not diving in over 3 years.

I decided to book a second dive the following day to Koh Phi Phi and again, Tim, was our dive leader. He was very attentive despite have a 4:1 divers to dive master ratio. The marine life was spectacular and the boat served food/drinks the entire time on the sea.

The staff and crew were extremely professional and kind. Their prices are very reasonable given the amount of value I was able to take away from 2 days of diving.

I highly recommend PDT and Tim for your next scuba trip from phuket!

We had a very short stay(Only 3 nights) in Phuket so wanted to spend one full day for dives that too the 2nd day, so we had no time for visiting the dive companies and deciding, had to take a call beforehand. We after researching a lot through reviews and recommendations decided to go with Phuket Dive tours. I am an Open Water Certified diver and my wife wanted to do DSD/Try Dive but we wanted to Dive together at the same dive sites. We did Racha-Noi 3 dives Day trip as suggested by the Phuket Dive tours team. Both David and his Wife were very prompt and helpful in recommending, guiding and explaining the tour. I corresponded with them through Whatsapp.

All the 3 Dive Sites were amazing.
The dive Boat was very clean and with hygienic toilets. It was so well planned that the food, equipments and other necessities were all ready at the right time for us.
Pickup and drop off was smooth. We were intotal 50 people including Instructors and the boat had lot of space to make you comfortable and sleep in between/before/after dives. The food served was amazing and had vegetarian options aswell. It followed all safety guidelines.
Boat Name: Freedom Dolphin

Our instructor was Kwat from the Phuket Dive Tours, she was a very experienced and patient instructor. As my wife panicked a little on her first dive but Kwat made sure that my wife takes her time to be comfortable with the water. She also made sure that I don’t waste my underwater time so asked her colleague to go with me so that I can explore till the time my wife’s comfortable. She also took some amazing pictures, edited them and air dropped us while on our way back to the island.

Overall it was the best decision to choose Phuket Dive tours.

Suggestion to others: All dive companies in Phuket usually use the same Dive Boats so choose the Dive company with good Instructors, the one who responds to all your queries and yes economical(most importantly :p).
And for us Phuket Dive Tours checked all the 3 Criterias.

Thank you David and Team Phuket dive tours!!

Did our first dive with Phuket Dive tours. Our instructor Jon is truly a wonderful instructor who is not only knowledgeable but super patient. My first impression when I met him on my first day was that he was super friendly and thorough with teaching the basics of diving. More importantly, he was someone who was safety oriented and conscientious. In such a short span of a few hours in the pool session, he managed to get us comfortable with using the BCD and breathing with the regulator and provided detailed explanations, so that we were ready for our boat dive the next day. During safety drills like mask clearing, he was very reassuring and stayed by our side to ensure we were confident and so we would not panic. Although we were nervous on the day of the boat dive, he constantly reassured us and was very dependable. He is also humorous and lightened the mood with jokes. When we were prepping our equipment for our first dive, he was by our sides to assist us and made sure we did the proper checks. During the dive, he was calm and gave clear instructions underwater so we were not confused and knew what to do. At our first dive site at Banana Bay, we felt very safe following his lead. He was very familiar with the site and knew the best spots, constantly pointing out unique or interesting marine life with his keen observation. The next day, our route involved swimming through boulders but the current was too strong so it wasn’t really safe for us to go through. Jon made sure to check ahead and prioritized our safety. Overall, Jon made my first dive experience fun, fulfilling and enriching. I highly recommend Jon to anyone looking to do their open water course. We would definitely come back to Jon for further dives. Best instructor ever! :)

The best scuba diving in phuket,
Great dive site knowledge, very profession, excellent dive equipment, only use the best dive boats with great food and boat crews. David always goes over and beyond to make your dive trips effortless, nothing is to much trouble and every situation has a solution.
Can not recommend these guys more highly, there is a lot of good dive shops in Phuket but only one excellent - Phuket dive tours.

Just finished the open water course with PDT. What a great experience!

The initial communication with Dave the owner was first class, he’s very quick to respond and get everything sorted as I did it all online.

Our coach was Jon (scuba_junkie1 on insta). He was excellent throughout, and very thorough meaning we got the most out of the course.

Day 1 was in the pool, Jon ensured we all surpassed the standard and were very confident going into day 2 when we would dive from the beach.

The beach dives were fantastic, there is a lot of life on the reef at Kata beach which made our first ocean dives ones to remember!

On day 3 we took the boat to the Ratcha islands and conducted 3 dives. We saw sting ray, barracudas, tiger fish, puffer fish and dived in a wreck which was a cool experience! Jon also sorted us out with high quality images which are an awesome keepsake from the course.

Overall, the fantastic instruction from Jon and assistance from Adam, both top notch blokes, made the course very enjoyable and I will be sure to dive with Jon next time I’m in Phuket. Thanks guys!

We did a 3 day 2 night liveaboard in the Similan Islands on the South Siam 4 boat with Michael (Scottish) as our instructor doing the SSI Advanced Adventurer course too.

The organisation was smooth on the part of Phuket Dive Tours from hotel pick up to drop off (at a different hotel). You pay a slight premium to go to the Similans vs other areas but it is worth it. We also made use of the package deal for Advanced SSI course which included private guide, all gear (very good, no complaints) and rental of dive computers.

We felt very safe and comfortable with Michael who gave good dive briefings, reassured us on our first night dive and would definitely dive with him again!

We were extremely lucky at the dive sites which weren't too busy seeing whale sharks, manta rays, white tip sharks, turtles and lots more.

Amazing trip - set the bar very high for our first liveaboard!

Phuket Dive Tours was above board with regard to all aspects of the trip. Covid protocol was handled responsibly and all the travel logistics were flawless. David was a master at moving us between water and boat for a day trip that included three dives and enough food in between each dive to feed a small army. Once in the water the professionalism continued, and David was keen on handling our direction and flow, while also managing to take astounding photos of us novice divers, and later made sure we all had access to the photo files. Truly, the kindest and most professional group of folks handling dive tours. Can't wait to return, and many many thanks to Phuket Dive Tours for the experience. Highly recommend.

I had an amazing time with Jonathan Parr and Adam, they are really friendly, funny and professional, I strongly recommend Phuket dive tour, because you can have an excellent diving experience. Like I did in my advance courses, it was amazing they will bring you to the best diving spots for your diving trips. seeing shark and cave dive is my highlight moments.
