My wife, my 14 year old son, my 13 year old daughter and I (all PADI Open Water certified) spent four great days diving with Sea Fun Diver at Racha Yai, Racha Noi, Shark point, ‘King Cruiser’ wreck and Phi Phi Islands.
Our accommodation happened to be near the CEOs (Rene) home, so he kindly picked us up each morning and drove us directly to the boat with a joke from his staff that we must be VIPs.
The boat was clean and well-kept by the boat crew.
It comprised of two decks: a lower deck with wheel house/cabin (air con) up forward and the dive prep area astern; an upper deck with a small seating area up forward for the sun worshipers and a larger sheltered seating area astern for those wanting to keep out of the sun. There were two toilets on both the port and starboard sides of the vessel with light hearted instructions from the crew on the correct use of them at sea and at anchor.
When joining the boat in the morning there were hot and cold drinks on offer with sandwiches & croissants available for those that missed breakfast. For lunch there was a buffet with a couple of Thai meat dishes, a Thai vegetarian dish, rice, salad and fruit. Ample hot and cold drinks were available all day.
Though not the best time of year for diving off the west coast of Thailand, Sea Fun divers checked the weather forecast each morning and planned the safest and best dive sites to suit the prevailing weather conditions. We went on four dive trips in a week and were lucky enough to dive at different locations each time.
Our Thai dive guide ‘New’ was extremely friendly, helpful and knowledgeable with a health focus on safety. He had an uncanny ability to spot the un-spottable and to point out to us the fauna that we would have undoubtedly missed had he not been there. My family and I had a great diving experience with New and I would ask for him again.
It is difficult to list all we saw but the highlights, especially for the kids, were: the leopard shark, the black tip reef shark and the amazing colour displays of the mating cuttle fish.
Rene & his staff ensured we had a wonderful time and we cannot thank them enough for the great experiences we had. It made our trip to Phuket a memorable one & we would recommend Sea Fun divers to anyone.
