Why booking your Similan Islands Liveaboard Adventure with a local company trip is better

Today more than ever, consumers are faced with many different ways of purchasing or buying the same product.

Scuba Diving is no different, particularly the Similan Island scuba diving liveaboard adventures.

In recent years has seen the introduction of two large online liveaboard booking agents, Liveaboard.com and PADI Travel. Both are legitimate business. Both operations European based and have huge advertising power beyond the reach of local Thai operators.

Prior to that booking were made either directly by the liveaboard operators or through local agents. The local businesses then supported the local economy.

Buying local means more money stays within your community. Every dollar spent generates twice as much income for the local economy. It creates more jobs and helps other local businesses. The increased spending helps local communities improve the conditions of their roads, parks, community areas, schools and hospitals.

Further we will offer local support and local knowledge to help plan you trip. Locals can give assistance with accommodation and where to stay, transport to and from the liveaboard, equipment and what to wear and what equipment will be required, recommendations for food and what to bring with you.

Local operators have intimate knowledge the different vessels, dive sites, water conditions and pending weather, all which make for a better scuba diving experience.

Since the advent of the two big booking agents, local operators have been suffering and as a result it having an effect on local scuba diving employment and that rolls onto other local businesses.

Aussie Divers Phuket is such a company and currently employs 10 local Thai staff and uses up to 20 other local businesses.

By booking through local agents you will be know that your money will be staying in the local community and contributing to heath and development of the local economy.

Aussie Divers Phuket will attempt to match any final price offered by the two big online agents and provide and much better.

Please support local business.

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 would be no device to keep you afloat [...]
