Cave Diving Thailand Cave diving in Thailand has grown in popularity over the last few years with the discovery and exploration of many new systems both in southern and northern provinces. Phuket is centrally located to access the caves down in the south both in the Khao Sok National Park, Trang and Krabi. Recently widely profiled dives have been conducted in both Sra keow Cave and Song Hong Cave to extreme depth sub 150m with penetrations over 1km linier distance. We are finding more and more caves in each region and its now becoming accessible by those who are full cave trained.

Pro-Tech offer Training upto full cave diver thease classes are normally conducted in Khao Sok National Park north of Phuket, Thailand. This area is covered with Limestone and gives the diver a perfect opportunity to explore amazing freshwater cave systems in a very unique environment. This extremely remote location is protected and has remained untouched and un-spoilt by tourism thus providing a real place to unwind and explore virgin dive sites not visited by the masses.
Cave training is completed in many of the different caves in this area with the most famous one being Pra Daeng. Huge stalagtites and formations, good visibility and low flow are amongst the benefits of this fantastic playground. Courses from Beginner to Cave CCR are available. We can also organize guided cave dives for certified divers please email for the costs. Course prices can be found on our website, full equipment hire is available through Pro-Tech.

Cave students can opt to combine certification levels to suit their time frame. Combination courses can be run on request, schedules permitting.


Sra Keow Cave - Located 2 hrs away from Phuket in the Krabi province, this unique system is surrounded by absolutely breathtaking scenery. Amongst the limestone cliffs you will find two pools used by elephants to cool off and drink from, they are known locally as Sra Keow Caves. They are considered an extreme dive due to their depth. The belief is that this cave system could be one of the deepest cave dives in the world, therefore is only accessible by very experienced cave divers.
