Learn how to Dive the Right Way.

Considerations for Safe scuba diving in Phuket start with basic training and the correct Training in a dive pool with a professional instructor.

If you want to save money, want to learn how to dive, or want to practice scuba diving and potentially avoid an accident then the best place and safest place is a dive pool.

Diving in the pool is the best way to practice, and learn safety, scuba diving lessons aren’t as expensive as you think, taking 1-hour pool dive lesson is often the most essential part of diving that covers safety requirements and is often overlooked by many certified divers or first-time beginners.

There’s a classic saying taking a shortcut to scuba diving in the ocean is a bit like sky diving without a parachute. Why would anyone avoid the correct training in any sport?

If you are in any doubt about how many people think they can strap on the equipment for the first time and jump in the ocean for the first time and dive without the proper instruction, think again about the success rate? very few nonswimmers realize that if you want to dive and avoid disappointment you need to take a pool dive first. Be prepared rather than gamble and take risks,  People often ask: “can you scuba dive without knowing how to swim”? yes, you can if properly supervised, you wouldn’t try swimming for the first time in the ocean so why go scuba diving in the ocean without a lesson in the pool first?

How to dive & save money learning to dive in a pool.

So you want to go scuba diving and want to have a great time and you look at the costs of a pool lesson versus a Day of boat diving for the first time.

Pool dives teach you how to dive how to practice, and the precautions that can prepare you for ocean diving. Pool dives introduce you to the water and the equipment you will be using underwater. Pool dives allow you to learn at your own pace and correct any concerns in a safe environment. Take a pool dive and find out if you want to dive in the ocean before you spend a tonne of cash on a course you may be unsure of.
