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.

In the unlikely event that your BCD (Buoyancy Control Device) was to falter then there would be no device to kee [...]

There have been some good results for us. Oddly though, I don’t think I was positive during this period, it actually felt [...]

The Curse of the Whale Shark

Was the curse of the whale shark fact or fiction? My first effort at scuba diving was a PADI Discover Scuba Diving way back in 2006. Back then I had never heard of a Whale Shark. A year later I became a certified diver and I was still none the wiser of the Holy Grail of marine creatures. I am not sure when in the following 3,500 + dives I became aware of them, but as with most underwater creatures that pass by the waters of Thailand, I just assumed a matter of time before I saw one…… or was it? Look for your whale shark with Aussie Divers: Book Here Scuba diving can be a cruel game. Given that marine creatures have a [...]
