Sea Fun Divers was super cooperative and helpful in booking dives and
trasporting back and forth to day trips. Nitrox was available and blends
were always 32-33%. Boat boys were very helpful on boat. Dive instructors
lead dive trips and the ratio never got greater than 3-4 divers per
instructor. The instructoirs tried to group divers with similar experience.
While the profile was not strictly enforced, the dive time was.
Occasionally the boat would have snorklers on board and the boat would get

Phuket has a limited number of dive sites worthy of diving and they all
require day trips by boat. The dive operators try to spread out and rotate
the dive sites but often there are numerous boats at the same dive site
which can be overwhelming for new divers that get confused underwater.
Spent 3 weeks diving and got bored with the same dive sites on week three.

Visibility varied depending on the rain, seas and current. Dove on the
wreck King Cruiser and 2 of the 3 dives (3 different days) were low
visibility. Did see a whale shark on one of the low vis days.

Lots of soft corals and marine life. Lots of colors and macros for photos.
Would recommend to other divers.

Will explore the live aboard option next trip to Phuket.

Sea Fun Divers were great to dive with and I would recommend them to anyone
traveling to Phuket.
