Sunrise DASH Divers

Sunrise Divers has been in Phuket for just about 10 years now, and one of the biggest changes over the years has been on the internet. Physically we have moved only one time, from a small office in Karon Beach to a larger one where we are now with a spacious equipment room, main office, back office and airconditioned classroom.

But on the web, changes have been huge. Our first websites in 2000 - 2002 were, to put it mildly.. poorly designed.. but on the other hand most dive centers were similarly bad! We realised in 2002 that the internet was changing and over the years have continually tried to improve our website, adding more information, easy browsing, trying to make it easier for people to find exactly what they need. We hope that our current design is good for you! Always happy to hear if anyone has any suggestions.

Now back then we were not so web savvy, and so we chose the web address with a dash, minus, hyphen, whatever you wish to call it. There was no thought to domain name protection or the chance that someone might copy our name. A few years later we thought it might be wise to also own the domain name without the dash, minus, hyphen, thing. BUT some clever nerd somewhere had bought it, was not using it, just holding it. We asked to buy the domain and were given a crazy price. A few years later the price had come down a notch, but was still way too much.

Last week we finally obtained the web address Seems whoever owned it had finally given up on us parting with huge sums of money. So finally we can be Sunrise DASH Divers and also just plain Sunrise Divers with no dash, minus, hyphen. I am so glad we don't have to have to say "dash, minus, hyphen" again!
