Overview

Local Dive Thailand is one of the few full stack Phuket diving companies, with our very own fully purposed scuba diving tour boat, M/V Kepsub runs daily dive trips to Phi Phi Island, Racha Yai/Noi & the King Cruiser Wreck. Though there are many other dive companies and some other dive boats to choose from, LDT is simply the only choice to make if you want to ensure that you have the best day possible while diving and access to the most exciting scuba diving sites Phuket & Phi Phi have to offer!
