Family Scuba Diving Koh Tao Songkran 2021

Despite the challenges of COVID-19 restrictions Aussie Divers was still able to conduct some great family scuba diving in Koh Tao over the 2021 Songkran break.

Dominated by families Aussie Divers was able to conduct PADI Bubblemaker, PADI Discover Scuba Diving, PADI Open Water training and some certified diver’s trips.

The easy diving and the shorter day trips make Koh Tao an ideal beginner’s dive destination. With morning and afternoon dives adds more flexibility in planning dive trips. Most morning trips arriving back in time to have lunch in one of the many secluded beachfront restaurants.

Junior Divers

There are important benefits in children learning to scuba dive including greater environmental awareness. By diving children have a greater respect for the underwater environment and will be our future ambassadors in taking care and protection of our fragile underwater ecosystem and precious marine life.

Doing the PADI Open Water course also creates a great sense of self-achievement and PADI’s learning system has students starting with easy skills and progressing to the more difficult skills. In a matter of days children move on from simple mask skills to mastering the complete removal and replacement of equipment underwater. The non-competitive aspect of scuba diving has all children participate as equals.

Children also become a part of a social scuba diving community that brings together people of all ages, race and social status and treats them as peers. With scuba diving conducted in more than 170 countries around the world, with many diverse scuba diving options, scuba diving gives children a lifelong skill to explore this great world.

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