Get Your Dive Computer Settings Right!

Getting your dive computer settings right may sound obvious but on a few occasions we’ve had to stop guests from diving. We really, really don’t like to do this but if during or after a dive your dive computer goes into error mode then we have no choice. It’s simply not safe.

On most of the rare occasions that this has happened, it’s a simple matter of guests having their dive computer set up incorrectly. We often get asked by guests to help set up the computer. There’s so many different brands and models available that we simply can’t know them all.

Switch To Tables?

Sounds a good idea? but some models will completely block out access to any menus so you can’t retrieve your data from your dive. Using your buddies or your guides computer data is not practical. You simply can’t guarantee that your profiles will be exactly the same. You may have gone a little deeper which can significantly affect your safe dive time.

Rental Computers

If you’re taking a PADI diving course with us, we supply Suunto Zoop or Aqualung i300. Our instructors know how to set up these computers so there won’t be a problem. The same goes if you’re a certified diver and hiring a dive computer from us. That being said, along with mask and fins a dive computer should be one of your first equipment purchases.

Read The Instructions!

Simple as that, every computer will come with an instruction manual to make sure you get your settings correct. Even if you’ve purchased your computer second hand you will find the instruction manual freely available online. If you need a little help with that, we’ve put links to some of the more popular computers below. The links will take you directly to the manufacturers page.

I've been enjoying the incredible marine life in our oceans for over 25 years. 13 years ago I became a PADI professional, hoping to introduce as many people as possible to the incredible beauty of the seas.

Having been fortunate enough to dive all over south east and especially Thailand, I enjoy sharing my experience and passion on this blog.

The big Phuket news for July 2022 is the legalisation of cannabis. Laws are somewhat smokey but at the moment it's a free for all.

A clarification of the law will come soon but at the moment you can spark up a fat one without the fear of being arrested as long as your not in a public space.

How Does Maya Bay Closure Affect Divers?

Maya Bay is probably the most famous beach in Thailand, unfortunately it's become a victim of its own success. It's been 18 years since the release of the movie that brought Maya bay its fame but the popularity hasn't diminished. Thousands of tourists alight everyday to visit the stunning location portrayed in 'The Beach' but most leave a little disappointed. Maya Bay really wasn't recognisable from the movie because speedboats and lon [...]

Changes For Phuket Sandbox From October 01st

Changes had to be made and from October 01st we will see some easing of restrictions. We're still not where we want to be but none the less the changes are welcome and we hope it will boost the appeal for a holiday and diving in Phuket.
