PADI Scuba Diver Course

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.

Scuba Diver Course 3 2 10,900 THB

Course Pre Requisites

  • Minimum 10 Years of Age
  • You can float in a swimming pool for 10 minutes unassisted by flotation devices

Once you have completed the PADI Scuba Diver course you will be certified to dive to 12m with a PADI professional. This means no more Discover Scuba Dives as you are now a certified scuba diver and can typically dive at lower costs than your non certified travel companions.

You also get a PADI Scuba Diver license delivered to your mailing address which you can carry with you on your travels so dive shops and instructors can instantly recognize your level of training. You’ll also be kept on the PADI diver database so even if you lose your card there will always be a way to prove that you are a certified diver to anyone that needs it.

If you are diving with Local Dive Thailand you’ll also gain the best training Thailand has to offer. Our highly qualified and super dedicated dive instructors are second to none!

Dehydration And Scuba Diving

We as any good dive boat should provide water free of charge on our day trip tours but even though it's free when we calculate the guest to water consumption ratio we find you're coming up well short on what you should be drinking. This has to change. Dehydration in scuba diving can make you more susceptible to decompression sickness. It's not the most common cause but staying hydrated is good practice for diving health.
