Scuba diving Wall in Phuket. All dive sites with Wall in Phuket
A wall is essentially an underwater cliff face, of either coral or rock, more commonly a reef edge that runs vertically, usually running from shallow to deep and drops off suddenly into the depths of the ocean. Walls are usually found around islands or continental coastlines where the sea bed which gradually slopes downwards, suddenly drops to the depths of the ocean. Diving a wall can be very exhilarating and requires good buoyancy control because there is no seabed to prevent the diver descending too deep. Reef walls usually have strong upward or downward currents running along the wall as the current from the deep hits the vertical rock face and rises, making it extremely challenging to navigate and swim which adds to the challenge 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..
