PADI Scuba Diver Course

Start Your Phuket Underwater Adventure with The Two Day PADI Scuba Diver Course

The PADI Scuba Diver Course is a great choice for those with limited time in Phuket or lack confidence in water. You’ll only need two days to complete this great little course and there is no swim test involved. Although we do highly recommend that you’re a confident swimmer before taking up any diving activity.

The course will go over all the basic safety and problem solving skills that you require to enjoy our incredible underwater world. Our professional PADI instructors will closely supervise every aspect in a safe, controlled environment and make sure you have great fun along the way.

A PADI Scuba Diver course has some basic pre-requisites listed below but essentially anyone of almost any age or experience can sign up for the Scuba Diver course and learn how to dive safely. Don’t trust your first Scuba Diving experience to anyone else. Book now with Local Dive Thailand and begin a life changing journey of discovery so you can see the majestic and downright weird animals that make it their home.

Course Options & Pricing

A 2 day PADI Scuba Diver course won’t take a chunk of time out of your holiday. The first day will take around 6 hours split between the classroom and the pool. On the second day you will head out to the clear blue waters of Racha Noi/Yai to practice your skills and therefore get a taste of this new world that’s being opened up to you. The third dive will be just for fun and a chance to explore under the guidance of your PADI instructor.
