Although there are many great dive sites available from shore here in Phuket, some of the world’s best diving is accessible only from a boat. With this in mind, the philosophy of this course is to focus on the comfort and ease of diving from a boat.
The goal of this course is to teach student divers a systematic, methodical approach to enjoying boat diving. Student divers will develop the techniques involved in boat diving within recreational limits and while avoiding disturbing delicate marine life. The best way to learn boat diving procedures and to apply them is by doing it.
This course philosophy therefore, expands student diver knowledge about the advantages of boat diving, boat terminology, types of dive boats, basic rules of the road, safety equipment for boat diving, boat diving procedures and etiquette, and the basic guides to boating safety. Student divers will apply the knowledge they gain by reading the PADI Boat Diver Manual, watching the PADI Boat Diving video, and on at least two open water dives practicing and demonstrating the practical aspects of boat diving.
