Green Island

Green Island is a small rarely dived island that is due south of Shark Point and about an hour boat ride west of the Phi Phi Islands.

It doesn’t provide the same quality of diving as either Shark Point or Phi Phi hence the lack of appeal for the day trip boats to stop there.

It is a small circular island with a sparse mixture coral and rocks. The southern side of the island is basically a flat sandy sea bed with not much marine life. Having said this there are constant rumours that say there is colony of leopard sharks that reside there.

The north side is made up of hard corals and are becoming reasonably healthy over the years. There are you the common reef in attendance with some nice schools of snappers present. The reef is also home to other creatures such as turtles, cuttlefish and octopus.

If she was not surrounded by the better dive sites of Phi Phi, Shark Point and Anemone Reef she would probably be dived a lot more regularly.

One of here down sides is that she is a popular site with the local fisherman and often quite a number of fish cages and fish netting can be found there.

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 then the answer is yes. In the PADI Open Water Diver Course it is specified that you have to be able to swim 200 metres with any stroke and 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 yours and your groups safety. In the unlikely event that your BCD (Buoyancy Control Device) was to falter then there [...]

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. Have you ever been diving with a group of divers and a PADI pro, maybe a divemaster or instructor as a guide, and wondered how the guide seems to be so confident and comfortable underwater? 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 [...]
