Overview

If you already a certified diver but have not dived for a while then this one day program gives you a great opportunity to refresh your diving knowledge and skills. Take a quiz to assess your understanding, practice some skills prior to diving and then enjoy two or three dives at the amazing dive sites of Phuket or Phi Phi. This course is recommended for anyone who hasn't dived for a period of six months or longer.

Dive Program

  • On the journey out to the first dive site take the PADI Scuba Review quiz and then check through your answers with your own personal instructor.
  • Next your instructor will demonstrate how to set up the equipment whilst reminding you of the different parts of your scuba gear and how to use them.
  • At the beginning of the dive your instructor will demonstrate the most important skills needed for diving and then get you to repeat them.
  • Once the skills are complete it's time for the fun to really begin by going off to explore the reef.
  • After lunch get back in the water for a second dive. Continue to explore the reef and practice buoyancy control.
  • Depending on the package chosen, enjoy a final dive admiring the amazing marine life around Phuket.

Dive Site Options

Choose from three options for your dive experience:

  • Racha Yai Island - Generally clear water, wonderful marine life with dives in sheltered bays make this an ideal starting place especially for those who are a little nervous. Read more
  • Racha Noi and Yai Islands - A great mix of landscapes and marine life in quieter dive spots. Occasionally larger wildlife is spotted here including turtles and large rays. Read more
  • Phi Phi Islands - Beautiful scenery both above and below the water with very colourful reefs and a chane of a turtle or a shark. It can sometimes be more challenging to dive here though as the sites are more open to both waves and underwater currents. Read more
