Diving in Phuket with Poseidon Diving
Diving in Phuket was completely unknown at the beginning of the 70-s, as Phuket Island was a sleepy province far away from the already popular Bangkok. The locals lived from fishing, pewter digging and rubber plantations. There was no tourism. Except for a few hippies and adventurers exploring new paths. In 1972, Klaus Orlik opened the first dive center here. Since then diving in Phuket has become popular and the island is now a well-known destination for holiday divers.

Why diving in Phuket with Poseidon?
- Because the owners are themselves are on board every day
- They know the dive grounds well and take pleasure in showing you the full range of interesting things to see
- As the owners are on board, they attach great importance to safety and avoid any risky situations
- Staying with the guests lets us know what the guests want and need
- You have a direct contact for questions and concerns and you will not be left wondering
- Because we are not a big company with dozens of divers on board
- Because we are flexible and do not operate according to a fixed timetable. We don’t see any point in spending the day in rough seas on an open reef. Or in calm seas in a protected bay. Just because the schedule dictates it
- Diving in Phuket should be safe, comfortable, offer beautiful dives and be fun.
- The fact that many divers have been with us for more than 45 years speaks for itself. And that we haven’t lost a single diver since our start in Phuket in 1972 may says something about our safety standards The Poseidon Diving crew in Phuket
We like to dive ourselves for the rest of our lives. And we want you to feel comfortable with us and to have beautiful dives. And maybe you’ll come back to Phuket to experience underwater adventures with us. Or maybe you come with us on one of our special diving trips to Indonesia. Diving in Phuket is much more than just business for us. Of course we have to earn money. Otherwise we can make the dive center the same. But our main focus is on diving and holidaying together for you.
