My First Scuba Dive

First Time Scuba Diving – When I Fell In Love With The Underwater World

Around fifteen years ago, I embarked on what would become a life-changing experience: my first scuba dive. As a PADI Discover Scuba Diving Experience participant in Phuket, Thailand, I was both nervous and excited to explore the underwater world. Little did I know that this would be the start of my scuba diving journey, which eventually led me to become a PADI scuba diving instructor.

Before my first dive, I underwent a brief training session with my PADI instructor. We went over the basic principles of scuba diving, such as equalizing pressure in my ears and mask clearing techniques. Even though it was just a quick session, it was enough to give me the confidence I needed to enter the water.

As I descended into the crystal-clear waters of Phuket, I was in awe of the beauty that surrounded me. Schools of colorful fish, vibrant coral reefs, and sea turtles gracefully swimming past me. It was a surreal experience that left me completely captivated.

The weightlessness that scuba diving provides is one of the most freeing experiences I’ve ever had. The feeling of floating in the water and being able to move in any direction without any resistance is truly unique. It was such an exhilarating experience that I knew I had to do it again.

I continued to dive in various locations around the world, becoming more and more fascinated with the underwater world. I eventually decided to become a scuba diving instructor myself so that I could share my love of scuba diving with others.

Looking back at my first scuba diving experience, I am grateful for taking that first step into the unknown. Scuba diving has given me so much joy and opened up a whole new world of adventure. It’s an experience that I will always cherish and a reminder of the endless possibilities that await when we step out of our comfort zones.

In conclusion, if you are interested in scuba diving, I highly recommend taking the PADI Discover Scuba Diving Experience. It’s an excellent opportunity to try scuba diving for the first time with a professional instructor guiding you every step of the way. Who knows, it may just be the start of your own scuba diving journey!

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. Here is some explanations and reasons why. 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 continuously for 200 metres. This can be with any stroke however it does need to be continuous without stopping. There is alternate option and that is you do a 300 metre mask, fin and snorkel swim. Some do find this easier to the 200 swim. You also have to be able to tread water or float for at least 10 minut [...]

Can I Fly After Scuba Diving?

Flying after scuba diving is possibly one of the most asked questions when booking a day trip or PADI course here in Phuket, Thailand. "When is it safe to fly? Can i fly the same day as scuba diving? If i finish my course on Friday can i fly that night?" This question is covered in all beginners Open Water Course's, however the recommendations do change from time to time, and if you haven't dived in a while you may have simply forgotten some dive theory (perhaps you need a refresher?).

My Most Memorable Dive

Here is a list of the staff at Aussie Divers most memorable dives. My most memorable dive was at South Tip, Racha Noi in 2009. It was a charter trip with a company I used to work for. The boat was full of either divemasters or instructor. My group was the last in the water, there were three of us. We were doing our safety stop when I noticed a huge Oceanic Manta Ray in the distance swimming towards as. The manta ray swam right up to us and started swimming circles around us. It was amazing and needless to say we start a bit longer underwater than we should have. We were pumped when we got back on the boat and would not shut [...]
