Do you love the ocean? Do you often snorkel and want to know how it feels like to breathe underwater? Are your friends or family already divers; but you are unsure whether diving suits you? Or you are simply looking for a new adventure? Then the try scuba diving program is just the thing for you. A Try Dive / Try Scuba Dive is the same than Discover Scuba Diving and can be done in one day. Some call it as well trial dive or check out dive.
It opens the gate to an indescribably beautiful and unknown world and you experience diving close. There is no other feeling like floating weightlessly over colorful coral reefs while looking at all the diverse marine life in their natural environment.

Where do I dive during the Discover Scuba Diving in Phuket?
In our family-operated diving school in Phuket, you will not be treated like a number. The Try Scuba Diving takes place in small groups and with personal attention on our own diving boat.
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 Try Scuba Diving day depending on prevailing conditions such as weather, waves, tides and currents. Enjoy 2 dives with no time limit, on our easygoing diving boat. Dive sites suitable for Try Scuba Diving in Phuket are the Racha Islands, Koh Mai Thon and Koh Doc Mai.
Please note that you are not allowed to fly after scuba diving for at least 18 hours.
Fit to dive?
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 start a SSI Try Scuba Diving 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.
