Diving and Snorkelling in Thailand

With over 3,000 kilometres of coastline, Thailand is a natural destination for people interested in diving and snorkelling.

Thailand's beaches and islands are some of the best in the world, offering exotic landscapes and flawless beaches. But it is the crystal clear water and coral that really provide the fascination and draw for many of the kingdom's visitors, whether for a dedicated diving holiday, or just part of a holiday experience.

Although best between October and June, diving is possible all year round. For novices with no experience of diving or snorkelling, there could not be a better location for a first attempt. Compared to the west, diving is relatively cheap and all the equipment needed is available for rent at a reasonable price - no major outlay to indulge in something you might only ever try once or twice. Diving in Thailand is also safe - there are hundreds of dive schools and PADI - a professional diving organisation - ( oversees training standards. There are no short cuts, nothing done on the cheap - diving in Thailand is as safe as anywhere else in the world.

For people with a bit of experience, Thailand offers a delightful diving experience. In some of Thailand's waters visibility is up to 30 metres and there is a lot to see! Underwater mountains, coral gardens, undersea rock formations, hard and soft corals - it is all there, alongside a rich variety of marine life including whale sharks, silver tip sharks and manta rays - enough to impress even the most experienced of divers. There are also sites for more experienced divers that offer holes in rock formations to swim through and journeys into sunken battleships.
