PADI DIVING COURSES
The Surin’s preferred dive operator, H2O Sportz, is a 5-star PADI training facility offering accredited dive courses from introductory to advanced levels year-round. The introductory course is a quick and safe way to experience the thrill of scuba-diving in one day. The course consists of a brief introduction to dive equipment followed by a pool session during which basic skills are introduced. An instructor-led dive follows that same afternoon. PADI Open Water Certification and all other PADI courses are available, along with a wide range of dives for experienced guests. Full gear and private dive boats are available.
The waters surrounding Phuket offer some spectacular diving experiences. Racha Island, less than 15 kilometres south of Phuket, is one of the most beautiful destinations in the region. The Malay word for ‘king’, Racha Island has two snow-white sand beaches and is a wonderful snorkelling and diving site. Just 40 minutes from the East coast marinas, Shark Point is a shallow dive site (about 10 metres). It is famous for its leopard sharks, bright-purple sea anemones, snappers and schools of moray eels. Koh Dok Mai, perhaps the area’s most spectacular dive site, is about 40 minutes away to the East. This wall dive takes you through caves and crevices filled with scorpion fish, sea anemones, coral and all the brilliant underwater marvels the Andaman Sea has to offer.
