PADI Deep Diver

Go Deep Diving And Explore the Hidden Depths of Phuket

The lure of the unknown is what got many of us into scuba diving in the first place and I’m sure like me you glance wistfully into the depths wondering what they’re hiding. There’s always the feeling of excitement and mystery when exploring somewhere that not many others can.

The PADI Deep Diver specialty will extend your current depth limit to 40m/130ft allowing you to check out new environments, deep wrecks or maybe just get away from the crowds all with confidence gained from the course.

The course comprises of theory and actual dives. Over two days you will complete 4 open water dives*and understand the reasons for deep diving and the importance of realising your personal limits.

The theory and dives will cover specialised deep diving equipment, deep dive planning, buddy contact procedures, buoyancy control, managing your gas supply, dealing with gas narcosis and safety considerations.

Due to the nature of the course and the topography of our dive sites, all dives will be completed in the clear waters of Racha Noi/Yai. You will learn on the course that conditions are key for deep diving and these islands are the best and safest location to conduct this informative programme.

You’ll need to be PADI Adventure Diver rating or higher, and at least 15 years old to enrol in the Deep Diver course with Local Dive Thailand.

Surin Island Dive Site Koh Tachai

Koh Tachai Pinnacle

Koh Tachai is a picture postcard tropical island with lush greenery and white sand beaches situated 20km north of Koh Bon and the Similan Island National Park. Underwater it's even more spectacular, huge granite boulders, healthy corals and tonnes of fish. A couple of mooring buoys is all you will see above the surface, the top of the dome shaped pinnacle is at 12m and falls away to 45m on the deepest side. The site is usually exposed to strong currents so you'll make your descent and ascent on of these buoys that will safely guide you down to an area of shelter from the current. On the west side you will find large boulders and swim-throughs and on the east there's gardens of sea whips [...]

A Maze of artificial reef at bay 1 Racha Yai The Archives

A maze of cubes

Many dive sites in Phuket are home to artificial reefs, an initiative that has been ongoing for many years and definitely pays off. Cubes are not the only thing you’ll see underwater around Phuket. There are numerous wrecks, reef balls, statues, even a scooter! Artificial reefs in popular day trip destinations have expanded over the recent years and have become an attraction for scuba divers. In addition to promote coral growth and attract marine life, artificial reefs help the ecosystem in some areas to “take a break” as divers have more things to explore. And places like Bay 1 of Koh Racha Yai, as you can see in the pictures, offer an underwater maze of structures to di [...]
