Refresher Diving Courses
If you have not been diving for a while, you will want to do a refresher course or refresher dives. After one of our courses, you will be comfortable and confident in the water again, so you can enjoy your diving experiences here in Phuket or at the Similan Islands. These refresher courses are fun, and have the extra advantage that on your following dives there will be no limitations, apart of course from the limitations imposed by your certification. After all, you would not want to come on a liveaboard boat, and have limitations on your first day of diving because your first dive of the day will be a check dive!
Phuket dash Scuba dot Com (phuket-scuba.com), your personal divecenter on Phuket, can offer you two different refreshers: the Scuba Review and a daytrip with two refresher dives.
- The Scuba Review Program consists of two parts:
- a Knowledge Review; and
- a Confined Water Skills Review.
The Confined Water Skills Review allows you to practice basic scuba skills. You will perform all the skills you already did for your open water course under guidance of a divemaster or instructor, and thereby update and fine-tune your diving ability. For this we have here in Kata on Phuket a swimming pool available that was specifically build to conduct divecourses.
The charge for the Scuba Review is, including equipment, 2,500 Baht for the first diver and 1,500 Baht for every extra diver, and will take about a half day. This is possible every day of the week.
Together with a divemaster or instructor you will make two dives at Racha Yai. On the way to Racha Yai you will do a Knowledge Review, covering the basic safety information divers learn during their entry level training. At the beginning of the first dive, in sheltered waters, you will do a short skill review. After that it is time for two fundives!
In addition you will also receive an area overview and a briefing on local conditions, hazards and points of interest, including information about aquatic life. We will also inform you about local procedures and habits.
These refresher dives we do at Racha Yai. The costs are 4,200 Baht, including equipment rental, transfers, etc. and take one day. This is possible every day of the week. Against a surcharge you can also do this refresher course with 3 dives at Koh Phi Phi or Racha Noi.
From November through April you can also do the refresher course with Phuket dash Scuba dot Com (phuket-scuba.com) from Kata Beach, again this is possible every day of the week. The charge is 3,200 Baht for two dives from the beach; for two dives from a longtail boat the charge is 4,200 Baht for the first diver, 2,600 Baht for every other diver.
Let us know when you would like to discover the Phuket underwater world. The refresher dives you can do every day of the week with your personal divecenter on Phuket.
