SSI and PADI Diving Courses

With excellent training facilities, course materials and experienced and enthusiastic instructors we can offer here on Phuket Thailand the full range of SSI and PADI dive courses. As an SSI divecenter and with Steven as SSI and PADI Master Instructor we can offer you all PADI and SSI recreational scuba dive courses, and even a good, hands-on divemaster course. With easy to follow explanations in your own language you will be surprised how easy learning to dive can be. At all times however, we apply our 'safety first' policy.
Provided it is properly taught, diving is one of the safest and most enjoyable recreational activities.

We offer everybody who wants to enroll in a diving course a choice between two different certification programs: SSI and PADI. Both are recognised worldwide and they are comparable, but PADI is better known, especially amongst beginner divers. This means that SSI is cheaper, and that saving we pass on to our students.

For all beginner courses we include free diving insurance.
