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.

Course Options & Pricing
A 2 day PADI Scuba Diver course won’t take a chunk of time out of your holiday. The course will begin in our PADI 5* Dive Center in Rawai. We have very comfortable classrooms and our own swimming pool for a seamless course flow. There’s no 30-40 minute truck ride to the nearest swimming pool which is the case with many Phuket Open Water courses. When you get hungry, we also have an onsite restaurant to fill your belly.
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.
