Dive course theory – Knowledge Development

- Knowledge Reviews are completed on line and this will be reviewed by your Diving instructor so this independent study section of the manual is very important.

Choosing The Best Dive sites options for your diving courses.
As a student learning to dive the choice of open water dive sites for your training dives are often determined by the dive shop selling you the course, you have little or no say in the courses offered to you. Many shops dont offer any flexible choices or alternatives Why do we include beach diving as an Option (available Mid November – May) for Open water dives course? Beach dives allow you to spend more time with your family and less time in minivans or on boats! This is simply common sense to some people, If you are short on Holiday time then the open water course at the beach will save you 5 hours travelling in comparison to Boat Diving.
Option 1 (available late November to May) 4 Days – 3 Beach & 6 Boat dives

Not included are marine park fees for PHI Phi island @ 600 thb per day per diver..
The dive sites around Phuket are diverse when it comes to marine life and its often the case that the better deeper water sites do have better variation of marine life, however its worth knowing now that you then have to travel much further, as much as 3 hours to Phi Phi Islands. Remote islands like Phi Phi often have restrictive conditions at the premier dive sites and these may not be available meaning boats often redirect in low season to the not so popular reefs, this can often detract from you enjoyment specifically in late December 24th to January 10th due to the sheer demand. If Choosing Phi Phi you should note that you can spend 3-4 hrs travelling prior to making you first dive of the day at around 11am and Often more than not taking a 6 dive option would result in a very late returns
