Thailand Divers in the Similan islands
This week in phuket scuba diving is in the Similan Islands with Thailand Divers and it has been amazing. This week at the Similan islands has been perfect. Blue sky, warm water, cool breeze, and so much varied sea life. Scuba diving in phuket has it all.
From the warm clear waters of the Similan Islands that produce perfect visability and minimal currents make it a perfect location for divers of all levels. The diving here is so relaxed that no matter where you go after then nothing will compare. Shallow reefs with turtles drifting past, reef sharks up and down, sea horses and sea moths for the macro lovers to the huge Napoleon Wrasse there is something for all on every dive.
