Not only is Phuket an excellent base for exploring some of Thailand’s great dive sites, but it’s also a lively holiday destination packed with fun.
The presence of a combination of several hazards simultaneously is common in diving, and the effect is generally increased risk to the diver, particularly where the occurrence of an incident due to one hazard triggers other hazards with a resulting cascade of incidents.

Although there are many dangers involved in scuba diving, divers can decrease the risks through proper procedures and appropriate equipment.
