Phuket - 21 to 25 Oct 09

Post Number:#1  Postby Ketam » Thu Aug 13, 2009 11:07 pm

Hi MUWians,

Ketam and Ketamnette are going to Phuket on the above dates but as yet booked anything but plane tickets. So here is a list of querries Ketam have and would appreciate any help.

a) Ketam understand may not be the best time to dive Phuket, but if really bad, maybe we just hang arround the beaches. Anybody can comment on this.

b) Live on board or day trips would you guys recommend for Phuket diving

c) If day trips, any suggestion for accommodations.

d) If LOB, what would you guys recommend.

e) Any tips on diving Phuket?

f) Anybody going to be there during this time? (Maybe can join ou guys)

Again appreciate all the help you guys can offer.

Not actually organiser but another diver is joining me, thus right now count is three divers. Contacted some dive centers and mostly LOB are not advisable as season is just opening there and water maybe choppy. So probably day trips only. Target budget is below 2k per person (not including flight) and received some good quotations. So anybody wanna join, lets go. With more divers maybe can get more discount....

Wokey guys,

Here are the trip latest info and costings. If anybody is interested just leave name here.

Lodging:
Karon Beach (Nearer to dive jetty)
The place I have in mind has a restaurant, a lounge area with a pool table, and a small swimming pool.
Standard Room = THB 600 per night x 4 = THB 2400
Deluxe Room = THB 700
Super Deluxe = THB 900
Superior = THB 1100

Diving day trips:
Oct 22nd (Thurs):

3 dives
Anemone Reef/Shark Point/Koh Doc Mai (soft coral sites and wall dive at Koh Doc Mai)
THB 3500 per diver
Equipment rental @ THB 600 full set

Oct 23 (Fri):

3 dives
Racha Noi + Racha Yai (hard coral sites)
THB 3700 per diver
Equipment rental @750 full set

Oct 24 (Sat):

3 dives
Phi Phi = Bida Nok + Bida Nai and Koh Doc Mai (you can dive the other side this time)
THB 3700 per diver
Equipment rental @ 750 full set


So roughly total for divers without equipment = THB 13300 or around RM 1400

So anybody game for a Thai escapade?  :glasses9:

Prices: Thanks to Marcia
