    Can members give the names of boats/operators in Phuket who are currently running daytrips to the local Phuket dive sites. I'm here now and seems most shops are on temporary or permanent hiatus.

    I'm happy to help you out. On our website you will find the daily trips on offer here, Phuket dash Scuba dot Com news and updates. I am not on Phuket myself at the moment, and since there are no walk in customers right now the shop is only open on request. Email contact, or Facebook, Messenger, WhatsApp etc, is best right now.

    Probably the only way in a situation like now.
    No need to commute to the office and work at home or anywhere else.

    Only part of what we sell on a personal basis, simply because pricewise (which is really important for online sales) they're much more expensive than others.

    Thanks for the reply...yes, I have been diving with Seabees the past 2 weekends. For March, they are diving weekends and Thai holidays but for April, they are planning to go out 7 days a week.

    B5800 for 4 dive weekend (2 days)...I subtract 1000 baht for not eating in restos for those 2 days (four meals) and 600 baht for equip rental leaves me with B4200 for four boat dives or 1050 per tank. Pretty cheap for probably the best most comfortable day-trip boat on the island.

    Most hotels have breakfast included. As I said "Only part of what we sell on a personal basis,", I am not going to comment on operators here on the open forum unless there is a specific need for that.

    Enjoy your trips.

    To make sense of stevenl's reticence, you need to understand that Thailand's over the top anti-defamation laws make it extremely ill-advised for locals to publicly state anything beyond the barest facts about a Thai business.

    Posting anything negative about a business or person can result in fines or jail time and even expulsion from the country for non-citizen residents. Unlike US law, it does not matter if the the post is pure opinion or demonstrably true.
