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

Ultimately it was for their benefit and the benefit of the grea [...]

Scuba Diving – Fun for the Whole Family

Scuba diving is a fun that the whole family can enjoy together. There is a stereotype that scuba diving is only for young and adventurous men. This myth couldn’t be further from the truth. In 2010 34% of all PADI certifications worldwide were female. This is a sharp increase in the initial early days of scuba diving and it is slowly on the increase. The figures for scuba diving in Phuket and Thailand are very similar. PADI do have some age restrictions on ages for some of the more difficult scuba diving courses. However the entry-level courses such as the PADI Discover Scuba Diving, PADI open Water Course and PADI Advance O [...]
