Is Phuket, Thailand a Good Place to Learn to Scuba Dive?

Often divers who wish to learn to scuba dive are faced with a decision to learn in their home country or away. Learning to scuba diving in Phuket has its distinct advantages. 1. The Water is Warm Let's face it who likes to be cold? The water temperature in Phuket is generally around 29 degrees Celsius. Not only is more fun to be in but it is easier to stay focused. When you are cold a considerable amount to your body's energy is used to keep you warm. Less energy is available for concentration and focus. Further warm environments also make us happier.

Baby Seahorse Kata Beach Scuba Diving Phuket Marine Life

Has Kata Beach Dive Become A Serious Certified Divers Site?

In the past the Kata Beach dive was used more as a necessity and beginners dive rather than a dive site for certified divers. It is a dive site that can only be dived during the high season, October/November through to late April. The change of winds during the low season has the wind coming directly from the west and straight into the beach. These create high waves and increases underwater movement, reducing visibility and pushes trash into the dive site. The high season winds come from the east and make for better beach dive conditions. Kata Beach is quite a shallow dive site and given it proximity the heavily populated Phuket island, visibility is not always the best. However with some [...]

PADI Rescue Diver Courses

Becoming a PADI Rescue Diver

“The best moments in our lives are not the passive, receptive, relaxing times… The best moments usually occur if a person’s body or mind is stretched to its limits in a voluntary effort to accomplish something difficult and worthwhile.” ~ Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi One of the best ways to boost your dive confidence and level of experience is to do the PADI Rescue Course.

The answer may be simpler than you think! The PADI Rescue course is not only about learning how to rescue your buddy in an [...]

Travel Insurance Phuket Thailand Best Scuba Everything Else

Why you should have Travel Insurance

While individual circumstances may vary, Aussie Divers Phuket highly recommends to anyone planning to visit Thailand and Southeast Asia to invest in travel insurance. Altho scuba diving is a relatively low risk activity, as long as you listen to your instructor/guide, travel insurance is cheap these days. It really can go a long way in any accident, emergency or cancellations/delays whilst travelling. Many travellers to Thailand & Southeast Asia hold a perception that as basic medical care is relatively cheap, there's little need for travel insurance. While it is true that basic healthcare in Southeast Asia can be cheap, the emphasis should be on the word basic — not cheap. True, Thailand does have a higher standard of medical care than other [...]

Can I Fly After Scuba Diving?

Day Trip Diving In Thailand

When scuba diving in Phuket you'll be embarking on what is referred to as 'Day Trip Scuba Diving', day trips will take you to one or many of the Islands around Phuket that house our outstanding reefs & wrecks. Because these Islands are typically one to two hours from the mainland by boat it works out much better if you do multiple dives while you are out there. Day trip diving here in Thailand will usually see you doing two or three dives per day, which is awesome because you get to see a multitude of different dive sites, marine life and scenery for a relatively low price, plus we get you back home in time for dinner.

Day trip diving is suitable for divers of all levels, whether experienced, new, or total beginners, including Discover Scuba Divers, we have many options for day trip divers, including Phi Phi Island, Racha Noi & Racha Yai and the King Cruiser Wreck. Basically it is just a matter of deciding which day trip and dive sites best suit your level of diving comfort and then contact Aussie Divers to book it.
