Underwater Picture ( Incase you want underwater picture, you need to pay 500 THB to the diving instructor on the boat at the time of the activity, this is over and above your normal dive charge)
Once at the island the Instructor will give you an introduction to scuba briefing and also get you familiar with the equipment and some techniques used for diving.
The Instructors and Divemasters will help you put the equipment on in the shallows and know it’s time for your first exhilarating breaths underwater, which is easy and a lot less difficult than you might think.
The Instructor will show you some skills and techniques such as mask clearing, finning and how to swim underwater.
We start the first dive in water you can stand up in and train to a maximum depth of 6 metres. This dive usually takes 45 minutes to an hour and there’s a lot of fish life around you.
After this we will go on the 2nd reef dive; Under the close guidance of PADI Instructors and PADI Dive masters we will take you on a shallow coral reef tour (maximum depth 12 metres) but generally diving at the 6 t0 7 metre mark where most of the best fish life is.
This dive usually lasts for 45 minutes to an hour. You will see colourful tropical fish-life like Angel fish and marine life such as rays as you explore the coral reef with a great chance of seeing large Hawkbill Turtles as we see them on virtually every dive.
After the second dive we will take lunch/snorkel and relax on the boat or island. Its not good to eat between dives it can cause people to feel uncomfortable when they dive on a full stomach.
