PADI Specialty Courses with Indepth Dive Centre on Phuket, Thailand.
First of all, our PADI Specialty Courses allow you to focus on the various types of Specialty Diving that you enjoy the most!
For example, on your PADI Advanced Open Water Course, one of the Adventure Dives that totally blew you away was the Wreck Adventure Dive. Therefore you are going to want to experience more of the same. In this case the PADI Wreck Specialty Diver Course is especially relevant because it will take you deeper into Wreck Diving. In fact you will actually do a total of 4 Wreck Dives, finally including an actual Wreck Penetration!
Indepth Dive Centre (IDC) in Phuket is a great place to learn PADI specialty courses. Certainly, Phuket has a number of suitable wrecks. Another bonus is 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 dive and explore.
There really are PADI Specialty Courses for almost anything you would want to learn whilst diving!
PADI Specialty Courses Timeframe & Packages
Taking PADI Specialty Courses on Phuket takes 1-4 days depending on which Specialty Course or Courses 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 most of all when put into a Specialty Course package. As a result of taking this option you benefit from both a reduced overall cost and also increased learning opportunities. For example, The Wreck Diving on the King Cruiser is a great one to do in combination with The Deep Diver Specialty Course.
PADI Specialty Courses - EANx & Poseidon Rebreather Options
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. Therefore you can quite happily do 3-hour recreational no-Deco dives after this course.
PADI Specialty Courses at the Similans
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.
