PADI Specialty Courses are an awesome opportuinity to take while on holiday on Phuket

PADI Specialty Courses with Indepth Dive Centre on Phuket, Thailand.

PADI Specialty Courses allow you to focus on the various types of Specialty Diving that you enjoy the most!

For example, if you have taken your PADI Advanced Open Water Course. And one of the Adventure Dives that totally blown away with was the Wreck Adventure Dive and you want more. Then the PADI Wreck Specialty Diver Course will take you deeper into Wreck Diving. In fact you will actually do a total of 4 Wreck Dives, including an actual Wreck Penetration!

Indepth Dive Centre (IDC) and Phuket is a great place to learn PADI specialty courses. Certainly, Phuket has a number of suitable wrecks. These include the sunken passenger ferry the King Cruiser which is our favourite. In addition there is also the Wreck in Bay 1 on Racha Yai, as well as several other wrecks for you can explore.

There really are PADI Specialty Courses for almost anything you would want to learn to dive!

Taking PADI Specialty Courses on Phuket takes 1-4 days depending on which Specialty Course/s you choose to take. This is because some Specialty Courses have 2 dives, and others 3-4 Specialty Course dives.

When taking more than one Specialty Course, they are often best taught in conjunction with each other. Again this is due to the number of dives we do per day and the variety of dive sites that to choose from. Specialty Courses work very well when put into a Specialty Course package. By this we mean both pricing and what you will be able to learn. For example, The Wreck Diving on the King Cruiser is a great one to do in combination with The Deep Diver Specialty Course.

And extending your dive time with Enriched Air Nitrox Diver is always a popular choice. In contrast Chris loves to teach the PADI Poseidon Rebreather Diver Course. This teaches you to dive a fully-closed rebreather (CCR), emitting no bubbles. Because of this, you can get really, really close to the marine life and stay down longer as your exhaled air isn't wasted. Hence you can quite happily do 3-hour recreational no-Deco dives after this course.

Also If you are lucky enough to be going out on a Similans Liveaboard trip, you might want to think about some Specialty Courses. Probably the most popular are: The PADI Deep Diver, Digital Underwater Photography and Enriched Air Nitrox Diver courses. Having these under your belt, will certainly help you get the maximum experience out of The Similans and surrounding National Parks.
