Phuket Diving

We will be going to Phuket and Phi Phi in late June and would like to do some diving.
We are recreation divers with 2 dozen dives
logged. Will diving be safe this time of
year? How is the visibility? Where can
you recommend as far as dive sites? We booked at PP Princess for 1 night. Is this a good hotel?

Also, has anyone out there ever stayed at
Kamala Beach Estates on Phuket? If so, please comment.

Regards

I enjoyed the P P Princess. Their Waterfall Restaurant is on the beach and is very good (not spectacular, but very good.) There is also a nice bar pool. It's also convenient to the "town," if that interests you.

Around Phuket the best dive site would be the Simillan Islands - Depth about 50 - 70 foot for a good dive. Being close to an Island in June will also be a bonus as the sea can get rough.

If the weather permit I would try to dive the "Burma Banks". Open sea, underwater mountain with depths around 120 - 130 foot deep. Again only if the weather permit.

Visibility should be good near the islands.

From May to October most people into diving head to Koh Tao and surrounding islands. Phi Phi / Phuket area in June is Monsoon time of year so naturally that affects the diving.
