at Phuket’s Anemone Reef
The underwater world reveals a brand new world: once on Phuket and wanting to see the magic, a full day
scuba diving off Anemone Reef will guarantee a good change to be mesmerized by various
species of sea creatures and, of course, a plethora of anemones.
WHY THIS TOUR?
Scuba diving off Phuket is one of the more exhilarating activities one can undertake; the broad selection of dive sites that are interesting, challenging and simply stunning in terms of marine life and corals have proven over and over again to be a great success for even the most experienced divers.
A site that one has to explore is Anemone Reef; as the name implies, anemones and corals are available in abundance. A day where will take it easy with 2 top quality dives, just to max out on an underwater experience that matches other dive sites in the Kingdom.
08:00 - 18:00
We will pick you up from your hotel along Patong, Karon or Kata (other Phuket beaches and regions are subject to supplementary charges) and we head out to the boat pier. Once settled in, we will go through the dive gear (rental of the gear and tanks is included) as our vessel for the day will head out in the open sea. The sailing time from Phuket harbour to the base of Anemone Reef is approximately 1.5 hours one way. En route to the dive site, a freshly-cooked breakfast is served.
We drop anchor right near the descent point of Anemone Reef as we start to gear up and are ready to lower ourselves towards the ocean bottom. The reef, rising close to the surface, has gained name and fame for its exquisite coral beauty with plenty of clown fish navigating themselves through the corals and anemones. The somewhat craggy rock formations – like a submerged pinnacle – as the base for hundreds of anemones and various forms of soft corals are the ideal home for sea life such as aforementioned clown fish and gatherings of lion fish among other species. During the two dives included, we venture into all corners of the reef after carefully planning our dive with our dive master. On various occasions, scuba divers have been fortunately enough to see barracuda, snappers and even turtles and sea snakes; the frequency of these sightings have made Anemone Reef one of the more popular sites for scuba diving day-trippers. A simple lunch is included on board.
In the afternoon, our captain sets course for mainland Phuket (around 1.5 hours back) and transfer you finally to your hotel along Patong, Karon and Kata Beach. We expect to pull up at the hotel at around 6 pm
