PADI Skin Diver

Explore the underwater world from the surface with Aussie Divers Phuket

What You Learn

The course provides basic information on skin diving equipment, dive science, the environment, problem management and safe skin diving practices.

In water training includes various techniques for donning and adjusting equipment, entering the water, checking buoyancy, surface swimming, clearing water from your snorkel and performing effortless surface dives.

Prerequisites

To enroll in the PADI Skin Diver course, you must be

at least eight years old
comfortable in the water.

The Fun Part

The best part is learning to use your mask, fins and snorkel so you don’t miss a moment of underwater action. Whether you’re looking at your local freshwater lake or the big blue ocean, you’ll have a new perspective on just about every body of water. You can use your new aquatic skills to explore a brand new world during an optional open water dive. And, when you’ve finished the course, you’ll get a PADI Skin Diver certification card for your efforts and be ready for your next adventure.

The Equipment You Use

The PADI Skin Diver course teaches you to use basic snorkeling equipment including a mask, snorkel, fins, buoyancy control device (BCD), exposure protection like a wet suit and dive weights as needed.

The Learning Materials You Need

The PADI Skin Diver is a simple course and you won’t have to do any reading or exams but you’ll enjoy the PADI Discover the Underwater World DVD. The DVD covers all of the great reasons to jump in and includes tips that will come in handy once you hit the water. A companion item is The Snorkeler’s Field Guide. This handy booklet illustrates various underwater environments along with their common aquatic life.

Do I Need to Know How To Swim to Scuba Dive?

This is a question that I often get asked, and really it is not as simple as YES or NO. If you want to become a certified scuba diver by doing the PADI Open Water Diver Course, the answer is yes. In the PADI Open Water Diver Course it is specified that you have to be able to swim 200 metres. This can be with any stroke. You also have to be able to tread water or float for at least 10 minutes. The reason for this is not for the fact that scuba diving requires you to swim. But rather it is for your and your groups safety. In the unlikely event that your BCD (Buoyancy Control Device) was to falter then there would be no device to kee [...]
