Referral Open Water Scuba Diver Course in Phuket
SSI courses are very flexible, meaning you can start in one dive centre and finish in another. Maybe you don’t fancy sitting in a classroom when you’re on holiday. Or you may started a diving course on a different holiday but had to stop for some reason and now you want to continue. Sign in for your Referral Diver at Aloha Diving. Or enhance your knowledge and diving skills by doing the upgrade from Scuba Diver to Open Water Diver.
In our family-operated diving school in Phuket, you will not be treated like a number. The Open Water Diver Course takes place in small groups and with personal attention.
It does not matter where you are staying in Phuket. We pick you up from your hotel (Karon, Kata, Chalong and Rawai – other regions upon request) free of charge and bring you to the pier.

Referral or Upgrade Course Itinerary
First day referral course: At 7:45 your day starts with the transfer to Chalong pier. On the boat you set up your equipment. After a briefing you do your first dive at a maximum depth of 12 meters. Between the two dives you enjoy a delicious lunch. After the second Open Water Course dive we are back around 5 pm. Second day referral course: You will be diving to a maximum depth of 18 meters for three more dives. Realise that you will be more relaxed then ever before. Together with your instructor, you will complete your scuba diving log book where you can track your diving experience around the world noting the fish you see and friends you will meet along the way.
If you like to upgrade your Scuba Diver certification to the Open Water Diver certification the itinerary will be similar to the Scuba Diver Course itinerary.
Once you get your SSI Open Water diving license in Phuket, you will be recognised world wide as a certified diver who can go on dive trips, rent equipment and conduct your own dives with a buddy up to a depth of 18 meters, anywhere in the world!
Congratulations for your first SCUBA dive certification. When you complete the Open Water Diver course with us you do not have to pay for rental scuba diving equipment during the same stay on Phuket Island.

Where do I dive during the Referral Open Water Diver Course in Phuket?
There is an abundance of marine life at the dives sites located in the Andaman Sea around Phuket and your instructor will show you a diverse variety of fish, corals and marine creatures. As we have a flexible boat schedule we choose the dive sites in the morning of the Open Water Diver Course day depending on prevailing conditions such as weather, waves, tides and currents. Enjoy 2 dives each day with no time limit, on a small, easygoing diving boat. Dive sites suitable to complete the Open Water Diver Course in Phuket are the Racha Islands, Koh Mai Thon, Koh Doc Mai and Shark Point.
We are asked this question quite often. Almost everyone is going to be fit to dive, but some medical conditions can cause problems underwater so it is important to make sure that you know if you are medically fit to dive. When you continue your Open Water Scuba Diver Referral program, you are required to complete a medical statement to declare yourself fit to dive. This statement lists medical conditions that may be affected by diving so be sure to answer completely and honestly – it’s for your own safety.
