PADI Scuba Diving Courses

To divers world-wide, PADI is the most trusted and recognized organization for recreational diving education. For many years we have been a PADI 5* Star Dive Center, because we believe “To help more people share our love for diving, we must help to train good divers. To help train good divers, we must first help to train good diving instructors”.

Many of our staff are our former students, dive master trainees, or IDC candidates, trained by the company and recruited afterwards as dive guides, instructors or office personnel.

By doing so we also have the advantage of keeping our service quality consistent for our customers. No matter who your dive guide is today, you know he/she is going to be as good as the one before. If you are taking a scuba diving course, you can trust that all of our instructors are taking their job of teaching YOU very seriously (while making it fun at the same time).

Scuba Diving Daytrips
Diving in Thailand is all year-round and suitable for divers at every level. With a weekly schedule, our day-trip boat is one of the most popular dive boats around Phuket.

Our goal has always been to provide the best service to divers from all over the world. The boat was carefully designed and equipped to meet divers’ needs, and we try to keep our standards high.

So what sets us apart from others?
Could it be our detailed briefings about the boat, the dive sites and safety? The ready, helping hands of the boat boys before even being asked? The small size of each dive group? How the captain spots you within seconds after you surface from a dive and moves the boat, positioning the ladder right in front of you? Or the smell of the most delicious pancakes (the only ones served on a dive boat here in Phuket) cooking in the kitchen on the way home? Most of our customers say “it’s the whole package”. Join us and find out!

Similans & Richelieu Liveaboard

The 9 islands some 70 kilometers northwest of Phuket, known as the Similan Islands, offers some of the best diving in Thailand. White sandy bottom or dramatic tunnels, swim-throughs amongst granite boulders, colorful reef species or big pelagic life, stunning corals and clear water, the Similan national park has everything to offer.

The best and most relaxing way to enjoy the diving in the Similans is with a liveaboard boat – don’t miss a liveaboard trip to the Similans onboard one of the many liveaboard boats on offer.

All the liveaboard boats we offer are professional liveaboard diving vessels. Apart from all the facilities designed specifically to meet divers’ needs, the cabins are tastefully decorated in Thai style and provide most comfort at sea.

All the boats have very experienced cruise directors to pick the best sites and give full briefings. The dive groups are small and divided by the divers’ level of training and interests underwater to make sure each and every one of our customers can get the best out of each dive.

When you are not diving, there are always other things to help you relax and rejuvenate: freshly prepared food or snacks or a movie in the lounge. You will definitely find each minute of the trip enjoyable!
