This however does allow you to do the open water course similans on a similan island liveabaord. This does mean they you can learn to dive phuket or in the similan islands.
Because it’s world renowned for its access to nearby Surin islands and Similan Island diving is a huge draw to the island of Phuket. Thailand is one of the most affordable places to get into this hugely rewarding sport, yet it is not without its risks — safety is paramount when choosing your operator. When you are selecting a company, always check that it is PADI certified. Many of the storefront operations are just consolidators for other companies (meaning you get less quality care and pay a fee to a middle man), so ask if they have their own boats and make sure you’ll be diving with the folks you meet behind the counter. Also check about the ratio of divers to instructor or dive master; anything more than five-to-one is not acceptable, and it should be more like two-to-one for beginner courses.
If you are in phuket thailand and you do not visit the similan islands then you are missing out on not only the best islands in Thailand but one of the top places on earth.
