Now Its Possible to Do Your PADI Open Water Course In The Similan Islands.

Yes now it is possible to get your PADI open water certification while diving the best islands in Thailand. This has been some thing thats been quie hard to do for so many in the years gone by but now you can do your open water course in the similan islands.



There are many phuket dive shops all selling tours and liveaboards to the similans.  The big problem is these days many people are pushed for time as they only come to places like phuket Thailand for a week and then want to see as much as possible. The problem arises when they want to see the similan islands as this until now you need to be an open water certified diver to do so. Then the Open Water course takes three days. The other main issue is when a couple / group where one is certified and the other is not as that is when scuba diving Thailand became a headache.  But fear not as now Thailand Divers is offering PADI Open water courses in the similans. Now you can learn to dive in Phuket and dive in the Similan islands too.


Now you can have time to do the open water course phuket, dive the similans and do all the other things to do in phuket that you planed on the one trip. What we do is arrive at the dive centre by 9am in the morning for your pool and class sessions. Then we board the similan liveaboard in the late afternoon and head out to similan islands during the evening. This way you save on the cost of the hotel too. You have time to relax and settle in to your cabin and have dinner on the deck as the sun sets. The boat then arrive at the first location before you turn in for the night so in the morning when its time to dive you are fresh and well fed too. Now you are ready to the course.


Then after your first 4 dives of the trip you are certified and still have another five dive over the next day and a half to explore the best islands in Thailand.  The open water course phuket is available on certain trips and not all cruises are possible. To experience the similan islands diving on the open water course you need to do the 3 day three night trip or longer and you can then head on up to the Surin islands too as these are just as good diving too and then you get a day diving Richelieu rock which is one of the top ten dive sites of the world.


What better place is there to get your open water certification or to do any other course come to that than in the best islands in Thailand and that means the world. Just pop in to Thailand Divers which is known as very flexible Phuket dive center so you can arrange the trips and courses to suit you. Diving phuket is a world beating place to dive so why not learn to dive in one of the best places on earth.
