Welcome to Oceanic Dive Center!
Whether you're a veteran of diving Phuket for many years, or never yet experienced the magical world beneath the waves, we can provide all the dive courses, fun-diving day trips and similans liveaboards that you're looking for while you're in Phuket. Oceanic is run by a family of divers, and we've been diving Phuket for ten years, catering to divers of all abilities, and keeping our Phuket diving school personal, professional, honest and knowledgeable. "More a club than a dive shop" is the most common comment we get from our scuba divers, who come back to Phuket year after year, and send their family and friends to experience the very best diving Phuket has to offer. We also arrange snorkeling trips for you and your family, either with or without scuba diving.
Similan Island Liveaboards - Diving Phuket to Similan Islands, Surin, Hin Daeng, Hin Muang, Koh Haa and Phi Phi
Join us on one of our Similan Islands liveaboards to scuba dive with manta rays, turtles and whalesharks! Phuket is an ideal starting point for your Similans liveaboard adventure. Most Similan Islands dive trips are 4 days and 4 nights - that's 14 dives - and you will dive Similans and sites further North of the Similans at Koh Bon, Koh Tachai, Richelieu Rock and Surin Islands. If you prefer a shorter trip, we have Similan liveaboard boats with a flexible schedule that you can join or leave any day you choose. Or you can head South to the less-visited, but equally beautiful, Hin Daeng, Hin Muang, Koh Haa, and Phi Phi on one of our Southern Andaman liveaboard safaris. Over our years of Phuket diving, since 1999, we have hand picked the best Similan liveaboards for you and we guarantee that, whether you choose a budget overnight Phi Phi trip or a luxury Similan Islands safari, you'll be treated like a VIP both under water and back on board. That's why our divers come back to us year after year.

Why Come Scuba Diving in Phuket?
Phuket has been a popular dive destination for many years now, and with good reason: new divers enjoy the easy conditions we have on many sites, with good visibility, little current and a LOT of fish life; divers with more experience can find rare species and spectacular underwater scenery to keep them amused; and if you've never dived before? Phuket dive sites harbour an incredible range of marine life species, living on the easiest of dive sites, so you never know what you may see, even on your first dive ever.
Another great advantage we have here diving in Phuket, is the climate. The water temperature remains at a steady 29°C (84°F) for the entire year, so there's no need for bulky wetsuits weighing down our divers' luggage!

Children's Diving in Phuket
We specialise in providing dive training courses for children. Over the years, we have developed our scuba courses to remain fun and engaging for kids of all ages, at the same time as instilling a keen sense of safety and responsibility. Children can dive, in a controlled environment, from as young as 8 years old, but it's not until they reach 10 that they can take the full scuba course to become Junior Open Water Divers.
In Phuket we have some fantastic dive sites that are shallow, and safe enough, for the youngest divers to meet all sorts of fascinating marine life. It is truly magical to watch your kids learning to dive, and we encourage families to join in on their children's dive courses. Whether you are already an experienced diver, or learning scuba at the same time as the kids, it helps forge an even stronger bond, experiencing the wonders of the underwater world together, and creating unforgettable memories.
