Discover Scuba Diving in Phuket
Give it a try! After a basic introduction in diving theory and practice in the pool, go for 1 or 2 open water dives with an instructor.
If you want to find out but aren’t quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course, the Discover Scuba Diving will let you try scuba diving to see if you like it.
This scuba diving program is actually not a scuba certification.
However during the Discover Scuba Diving experience you’ll learn how to use scuba equipment in shallow water and get a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore Phuket’s underwater world.
There is nothing like breathing underwater for the very first time. It takes a little getting used to – after all, we weren’t designed to do that – but after a few minutes of awestruck wonder, most people realize how easy scuba diving really is.
The biggest challenge instructors have with the Discover Scuba program is not coaxing participants into the water, but coaxing them out when the program is over. The fun part? It’s all fun!
Plus, you can get credit! If your Discover Scuba Diving program includes an actual scuba dive in open water, your experience may count toward PADI Scuba Diver or Open Water Diver certification, putting you a step ahead of the game when you decide to go for it.
