Apart from diving Phuket there are so many Phuket day trips to places like James Bond Island from the James Bond movie “The Man With The Golden Gun” or to bamboo island Phuket the setting for the Hollywood movie “The Beach”. Scuba diving in Phuket continues year round with the best conditions being in the high season of November to April, with the absolute peak conditions being towards the end of this period. In low season the weather is less predictable, featuring more rain and choppier seas. In March and April there might be unpredictable termoclimes that might drop the temperature a few degrees, but only for a short while. Most divers wear a thin full-length wetsuit for protection.
