Family Scuba Diving Koh Tao Songkran 2021

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.

During the period we were able to visit some of Koh Tao’s best dive sites including Hin Ngam, Aow Leuk, Japanese Garden, Twin Rocks, Chumphon Pinnacle all followed by a certified divers day trip to the famous Sail Rock.

The week was highlighted by more junior divers than adults which highlights that scuba diving is not only an adult activity.

Congratulations goes to PADI Bubblemakers Jonah (8), Alia (9) and Simon (9), PADI Discover Scuba Divers Tadhg (10), Daniel (12), Finley (13) and Caleb (14) along with new PADI Open Water Divers Maxime (10), Luka (12), Lucille (13), Nico (14) and Felix (16) with support from Junior PADI Open Water Divers Ben (13) and Nina (14).

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?

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 [...]

My First Dive – Aussie Divers Staff

The staff at Aussie Divers Phuket talk about their first dive. The first ever dive I did was on the Great Barrier Reef out of Cairns, Australia around 2004. I did a two dive PADI Discover Scuba Diving with a friend and it was her idea. The trip that we went on was a spit between snorkelers and scuba divers. Most were snorkelers. The experience was quite strange for me getting used to breathing underwater. I can recall not feeling too comfortable until the second dive. From what I remember the colors of the coral were vibrant and the was not that far below the surface. It was a nice dive with good visibility. Strangely en [...]
