The Fun Part
The fun part about this course is . . . well, just about all of it because learning to dive is incredible. You breathe underwater for the first time (something you’ll never forget) and learn what you need to know to become a certified diver. During the course, you’ll make at least five pool dives and at least four (possible six) dives at local dive sites under the supervision of your PADI Instructor. Dive sites visited will be the popular training grounds of Racha Yai and Racha Noi followed by Phi Phi and Shark Point.
My 16yo daughter wanted to learn to dive on our recent holiday in Phuket. You hear the stories of bad experiences so we did our research and ended up choosing Aussie Divers. As a parent, I could not have asked for a better option – their service and support staff, and the whole experience from initial discussions to our final dive days were really top shelf.

The Scuba Gear You Use
In the PADI Open Water Diver course, you learn to use basic scuba gear including a dive computer and standard accessories. Phuket’s warm climate and waters make it a perfect training environment, no need for thick and cumbersome wetsuits. Mostly we use 3mm short wetsuits however some wear not wetsuits at all opting for shorts and a rash guard.
Top quality rental equipment will be supplied throughout this course free of charge. We mostly use Scubapro which is recognised as one of the leading brands of scuba diving equipment in the world. If you wish to purchase your own equipment contact Aussie Divers Phuket for all your equipment needs.
