No. For insurance reasons, all our diving day trips are guided by one of our professional Instructors.
You will also gain from their extensive knowledge of the dive sites and marine-life around Phuket to make your day memorable.
No. We do however have a professional videographer onboard who will make a DVD of the day which is then available to buy for 1,000 Baht.
Our maximum group size is one instructor to 6 divers- but generally we will keep the group to one instructor to 4 divers.
The groups are split depending on the divers qualification level and experience, so the depth limitations are maintained within the whole group. For example, a group of Open Water divers will only be taken to maximum depth of 18m.
If you would prefer to dive in a lesser experienced group, for whatever reason, then please talk to our tour guide who will try and accommodate you.
Please remember to bring along your dive certification card for verification.
Please bring along a towel, swimwear and some money if you wish to buy a beer or T-shirt on board. Also, don't forget sun-protection cream, hat or cap and a smile!
You must absolutely NOT fly after diving for at least the current recommended no-fly time of 18 hours- for multiple dives in a day or multiple days diving you should wait at least 24 hours.
There is no reason why you can't dive after diving though. For example, you could land in Phuket in the morning and then join a liveaboard in the afternoon if you wished.
In most cases, the answer is yes. And don't worry, your breast implants are not going to explode from the pressure as they are made of saline or silicone gel and so exhibit properties similar to other liquid-filled parts of your body.
Divers should consult with their physician before diving after any surgery, including a breast augmentation. A diver must be fully recovered from surgery with no complications before returning to diving.
With the correct training scuba diving is a very safe and enjoyable sport.
It is the individual's responsibility to stay up to date with any developments and to seek further training if required.
It is also advisable to inform the company who you are planning to dive with if you haven't been diving for over one year. They can then advise you on an appropriate course of action to get you diving again safely.
If you're on the boat then the best place to be will be at the back of the boat in the centre. Look out to the horizon and take deep breaths.
Vomiting underwater is never fun, but it can be done safely when unavoidable. As with most less-than-pleasant experiences in life, even vomiting underwater has a silver-lining. Fish love diver puke. A diver who vomits underwater will quickly be surrounded by schools of fish eager to share his last meal- in fact, this is often referred to as "feeding the fish" for this very reason!
There are two options available:
1. Invest in your own mask that can be fitted with corrective lenses to match the prescription of your eyes.
2. If appropriate for you, the wearing of soft contact lenses rarely causes problems (as opposed to hard or gas-permeable lenses). Just remember to close your eyes first before flooding or removing your mask underwater to avoid having the lenses accidently washing away.
The official high season in Phuket is from November to early May when we experience blue sky, very little rainfall and calm seas to produce exceptional diving conditions.
This is also the time of the year when the Similan Islands and Richelieu Rock National Marine Parks are open to liveaboard boats.
From June to October, it is still possible to dive around Phuket as the water temperature is fairly constant all year-round. You will also be able to pick-up good deals on hotels at this time of year.
