Best Scuba Diving Sites in Krabi (Thailand)

The province of Krabi in the west coast of Thailand is as beautiful under the water as it is above it. Scuba diving in Krabi scene attracts thousands of tourists and divers alike from all over the world every year, and the experience offered by the beaches and offshore Krabi dive sites is totally worth it. Moving away from the rugged limestone hills, lush green mangroves and bustling cities, the peninsular coast along the Andaman Sea offers the best spots for scuba diving in Krabi.

    Mayukh from Breakbag Holidays nicely executed the trip and provided timely assistance for Thai pass and other travel formalities.Hotel provided in Bangkok was average as rooms were quite normal and breakfast options were also not great. Cabs provided were good and ensured timely transfer to Pattaya
    and then back to airport. We booked Koh Larn transfer through speed boat , however the option of private boat was not provided which came known to us while we started from Koh larn and saw that the shared boat was quite crowded.Overall the experience was fairly good. Bangkok has great night life to offer and we enjoyed it thoroughly.

    Pooja's 6 days trip to Krabi

    The experience in Thailand was amazing, thanks to the agents, they were in touch with us throughout the tour and made our trip hassle-free. Infact, I had taken my mom and dad for the tour and unfortunately my dad fell ill on the third day for 2 days. Both the agents in India and Thailand were very h
    elpful and got us every possible help/facilities. After dad recovered, we continued our tour which was indeed memorable. We stayed for a total of 7 days and 6 nights in Phuket & Bangkok, everything was well coordinated from hotels to transfers to sight seeing. All in all a wonderful experience. The Tripoholic team led by Gaurav can be trusted, may it be a honeymoon package or a family tour, they can manage everything very well. I am looking forward to another holiday with my husband and am sure to contact Gaurav again. Thank You to Tripoholic team.

    Loved the mix of rural, urban, natural environments. Our tour guide was phenomenal, but the accommodations were fine and not clean. All the cabs and taxi drivers were humble and very well guided. The only black mark was the long queue standing for VISA. It was pretty tiring where we all were standi
    ng for 2 hours. Again, the travel was flawless.
