Scuba Diver Experience After a quick morning in the classroom with a qualified instructor, you will be introduced to the underwater world via a confined body of water, usually a swimming pool, where you will take your first breathe underwater.

After you have become use to the feeling of weightlessness and breathing below the surface, your instructor will demonstrate some basic scuba diver skills which are necessary to accomplish for mastery of the course.

Once the instructor has demonstrated the skills they will ask you then to do the same skills. On the second day you will find yourself on a dive boat, the instructor will brief you about your next dive, things like the time, depth and what fish and other marine critters you will be seeing on the dive.

There are some fantastic dive sites around Phuket, with the visibility regularly hitting 30 metres; the water temperature is around 28 degrees, it is ideal combination for your introduction to Scuba diving.
