West of Eden – Island 7

West of Eden

Situated on the west side of Ko Pa- Yu (Island 7) this is a typical western Similan Island dive site comprising of giant granite boulders.

Although this is not as beautiful as it’s eastern counterpart it is a very enjoyable dive. It is a great exploration dive with some nice canyons, giant sea fans and soft corals.

You should be able to find plenty of lobsters on this site amongst other interesting things including Red Fire Gobies, Cowrie Shells and Stonefish.

The boulders are definitely the highlight and traveling to far north or south will produce rubble so take your time and enjoy these massive creations. Keep an ear out for the creaking boulder, quite an eerie sound when diving.

Depths Range 12 -35 metres, Visibility is good and it is a great dive for all levels of divers although check with the captain first in relation to currents.

Depth: 12-25m Difficulty: ✩✩ Marine life: ✩✩✩ Coral: ✩✩✩ Currents: ✩✩

Lat: 8.596976 Long: 97.638588

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 [...]

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 [...]
