Torolina Reef – Surin Islands

Torolina Reef is situated on southern of the two Surin Islands. Only ever accessible by the scuba diving liveaboard vessels out of Phuket or Khao Lak. This can be a deep dive as a lot of the dives in the region are.

This site has a scattering of rocks and hard corals and is quite different to most of the dive sites in the area. There are vast areas of sand even at 20 metres and the reef gradually slopes and keeps slopping down past 30 metres.

The currents can be ripping strong at times and if the they are up the site could be difficult for those that are not experienced. It can make for an interesting drift dive and if no current could be a very interesting exploration site for experienced scuba divers.

A good selection of pelagics, eels, glass fish and trigger fish here.

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 afloa [...]

What is the Underwater Visibility Like in Phuket?

A question that we often get asked here is “Is the visibility good?” 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 dive in deep waters may think that that the visibility is poor. We regularly have divers from both spectrums and then can arrive back from the same dive trip and one saying the visibility is good and the other saying it is not good. There are a [...]

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 [...]
