Course Overview

Ever fancied a wreck dive but was unsure of the techniques for diving them? Been to wrecks but never been inside? Now is your opportunity to do everything you ever dreamed of on a wreck. From basic wreck navigation techniques to hazard avoidance your ultimate goal is to safely go inside and visit areas never seen before.

All wreck dives are carried out at the King Cruiser wreck. The course is 4 days in total with a maximum of one dive each day on the King Cruiser wreck (for safety reasons) and two non-course dives at Shark Point and Koh Doc Mai. For the non-course dives your instructor will act as your own private guide.

It is also recommended that enriched air is used during the course. Enriched air tanks can be rented for an additional 200 baht per tank. If you are not enriched air certified then this is the perfect opportunity to combine the two specialties. Contact us for a combined course price.

Three Reasons To Dive With Us

With so many choices of who to dive with in Phuket, why choose us? Here are three good reasons:

  • Safety: This should be the first priority of every diver when diving anywhere, especially in a new place. With over 30 years between us of diving in Phuket we have an excellent safety record. This is due to our vast experience of diving in general but also because of our local knowledge. Our focus is on preventing problems from occurring rather than having to solve them.
  • Quality: We started our own diving company in Phuket because we felt unable to offer the quality we wanted when working for the bigger companies. Rather than being about profits we wanted to be about personal service. This is why we became the first dive company to offer diving courses in Phuket with only private instruction. We continue to do this and to stay small rather than give up our principles and make more money.
  • Fun: You don't dive because you have to, you dive to have fun. Us too! There is no place on this planet that we prefer to be than underwater. We never get bored of being surrounded by fishes. If we can help you to have as much fun diving as we do then it will probably be the best experience of your time in Phuket!
