National Park Fees introduced To Scuba Diving Phi Phi

The Thailand National Parks office informed the Phuket scuba diving industry on the 23rd March 2016 that they will be introducing a daily fee for divers entering the Phi Phi Islands national park.

This is similar to what is currently in place for the liveaboard adventures that visit the Similan and Surin National Parks.

This effectively means there will be a fee of THB 600 for every diver and THB 400 for every non-diver that visits Koh Phi Phi National Park. Fees will be payable in cash on the boat when entering Phi Phi

The fee is intended to help preserve the stunning marine fauna and flora found in the Koh Phi Phi National Park.

This has been a topic of discussion for many years now. The authorities will officially implement the fees from 1st April 2016 with the fee being paid in cash to park officials on the dive day.

Unfortunately this will increase the prices of our day trips to Phi Phi and PADI Open Water Courses and PADI Advanced Open Water Courses that involving diving Phi Phi.

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 then the answer is yes. In the PADI Open Water Diver Course it is specified that you have to be able to swim 200 metres with any stroke and 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 yours and your groups safety. In the unlikely event that your BCD (Buoyancy Control Device) was to falter then there would be no device to keep you afloat [...]

PADI Best Refresher Thailand Aussie Divers Phuket Courses

Do I Need to do a Scuba Diving Refresher?

PADI recommends when during their theory section of the PADI Open Water Course that you should do a refresher if you have not been diving for six months. This is for a very good reason, it involves your safety. Is this applicable to all cases? The requirement or need to do a refresher should not purely be based on time alone. The ability and confidence of the diver involved should also be taken into account. For example, a student who has only done the four dives of the PADI Open Water Course, was quite nervous during their course should look at doing a refresher. A divemaster with several hundreds or even thousands of dives [...]
