What is the Underwater Visibility Like in Phuket?

A question that we often get asked here in Phuket is “What is the underwater visibility like when I am there?” Good visibility and bad visibility is a subjective thing and people when commenting should be giving an example of what level of visibility they are comparing it too or with. For example, a diver that regularly dives in lake or quarries and they compare to that, may think the visibility is good. Those that regularly di [...]

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 [...]

PADI have set the age limit for both their PADI Discover Scuba Diving and their entry level Certification, the PADI Open Wa [...]
