SCUBA Diving Phuket

We dive at all the great dive sites

What could be better than to round up your sailing vacation with some SCUBA diving Phuket? Exploring the beautiful underwater world of the Andaman Sea is a fascinating experience and there is no better place to do it than from your very own private catamaran sailing yacht. Scuba Diving has become very popular in recent years, with the unfortunate effect that many dive sites can be very crowded these days. However, when you charter your own private sailing yacht, you’re not tied to any schedule! We dive at all the great dive sites but we do so either before or after any other dive boat arrive, often because we have been spending the night right at the dive site or arrive at the dive sites when the other boats have already left. Being just a few people on board, the only other divers you see are your buddies and we believe that this is the only way to enjoy scuba diving thoroughly.

You might have dived from a big dive boat before with 30-40 divers in the water when suddenly a Manta Ray passed by and before you could enjoy the sight of this majestic creature all the divers went chasing after it, scaring it away into the blue. What a disappointment! This will definitely not happen when you dive from our charter catamaran Nakamal or any of our other sailing yachts we offer for private charter.

We promise you the best diving experience possible!

Thailand has many great dive sites either going north to the Similan and Surin Islands which are world renowned for their clear water and abundance of fish, or down south to Koh Phi Phi, Koh Haa, Hin Deng and Hin Muang where we often see Whale sharks and Manta Rays and even further to the stunningly beautiful and mostly uninhabited Butang Archipelago.

Not just limited to SCUBA Diving Phuket

Since the Andaman Islands (belonging to India) having opened up several years ago, SY Nakamal and her crew have ventured to further horizons, discovering the huge Andaman Archipelago during many sail and dive charters. Also, this is our absolute favorite destination; we know all the best spots in the area. OK, maybe you think you have seen it all; but give the Andaman Islands a try, and be surprised that it can get even better…..!

With us, you’ve definitely reached the right address for your sail and dive adventure in Thailand and the Andaman Sea! Dieter, the captain of SY Nakamal, has been sailing and diving in these waters for over 30 years and he has a great knowledge of the area. Dieter opened the very first PADI diving school on Phuket back in 1979! His love for diving has kept him doing so ever since. With thousands of dives under his weight belt he has many a story to tell. Up until today, Dieter guides everybody himself and he has an absolutely clean record, there has never been a single accident involving any of his students or fun divers, so you can be sure that you will be safe and we will take very good care for you and your loved ones, above and below the water!
