PADI Deep Diver

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.

Anita’s Reef

The yellow lipped banded sea krait has a very powerful myotoxic venom and is probably the only snake you'll encounter on your Thailand holiday.
