By being an 8 times winner of this sought after trophy as the "Best Dive Center in South East Asia," and with several second places, we have been able over many years to enjoy the trust of the divers and voters of this award.
No other dive centre in Thailand has previously been honoured with this prize.
Most other dive boats serve mainly as a means of transport for "boatless" dive operators and function more as a dive taxi and not as a comfortable and well-organised dive boat belonging to one single dive centre. Sea Bees does not do do factory production line diving.
As the majority of Sea Bees guests are our own customers, you will always find yourself on the boat you chose - a Sea Bees owned boat.
Here, you will be welcomed and treated as a special guest instead of a number being shipped to your dive site - this we guarantee!
As the first and only dive centre in Phuket and Khao Lak, Sea Bees Diving was honoured with this prestigious award from the Ministry for Tourism & Sports. The criteria covered service, safety as well as an emphasis on the environmental impact of the operation. An award of which we are extremely proud.
Sea Bees Diving is the only dive centre on Phuket which has its own dive resort and the harbour within walking distance. This will save you a transfer by minibus and sometimes a longer drive due to traffic jams, especially during rush hour.
This means getting up later in the morning and leaving the dive centre on your return on your own terms - unless you want to hang around for a "post-dive" drink!
This covers safety in the dive centre, the compressor as well as on the dive boat. An independent committee thoroughly examines these criteria and assigns stars based on their own strict guidelines.
Sea Bees Diving has been awarded the maximum amount of 5 stars and possesses, as the only dive centre on Phuket and in Khao Lak, internationally certified safety.
Contrary to other dive companies, we operate exclusively with our own boats and do not book guests on other dive vessels. Our boats are our signature and form a local guideline which others try to match.
This gives you the benefit of ending up on the boat you actually booked and not "one day here, the next day there" on different vessels.
Just keep in mind that the cruise to the dive sites around Phuket and Khao Lak averages a minimum of 1.5 - 2 hrs. You spend a lot of precious holiday time on the boat and should not have to make any compromises - even when it comes to safety.
Quality Divers is an international association of elite dive centres who only include the best from each country. Sea Bees Diving is extremely proud to be the exclusive representative for Thailand.
Apart from the assurance of booking with a reputable dive centre, you also have the advantages of Quality Diver Member Card which entitles you to discounts in the future on diving at the best dive centres worldwide.
As one of the oldest and most experienced dive centres on Phuket and in Khao Lak, we possess the necessary expertise regarding safety and service. "Our Knowledge Is Your Advantage."
This ratio is not up for discussion and we therefore dive only in very small guided groups. Our guides are specially trained for this and can show you underwater "creatures" which you might never have found on your own.
Although this should go without saying, sadly it isn't.
Our guides will always try to extend your dive time to 60 minutes to ensure maximum dive pleasure. As the subsequent surface and desaturation interval is a very important factor for your health and safety, it will be always a minimum of 1.5 hours.
Longer dive time + sufficient desaturation = better performance and added safety.
