Corals are tiny animals that live together in colonies to form coral reefs. These reefs are underwater structures made from calcium carbonate secreted by the corals, and which grow best in warm, shallow, clear, sunny and agitated waters. Coral reefs are one of the most biologically diverse habitats on the planet and play host to an extraordinary variety of marine plants and animals. In fact, although coral reefs occupy less than one percent of the world's surface, they are home to 25% of all marine species. Corals can be found all around the world and majority are classified as either hard corals or soft corals. Phuket is the gateway to the best scuba diving in Thailand. Phuket Thailand has an impressive variety of diving available; the marine life is truly outstanding. There are dive sites for all levels of divers and to suit all tastes from wreck dives, coral reef dives, wall dives and many more. 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. The water temperatures range from 26°C (January and February) to 30°C (May and June). 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..
