LEARN TO DIVE ON A SIMILAN LIVEABOARD?

course03

One important aspect of learning to dive from a Similan liveaboard is that you don’t have the added pressure of time constraints. If your course takes you a little longer, with an average of 14 dives per liveaboard trip, there are plenty of opportunities to perfect your skills underwater.

“Learn at your own relaxed pace and become a skilled and confident diver”

"When learning to dive some people wonder, “what if I don't like it?”. It's a valid question, but more often than not, it is never dwelt on for long after your first outing underwater."

For some people this question is there and can put them off committing to learning to dive as part of a 4 day liveaboard trip. It is a big investment for something that you might not like.

WHY LEARN ON A SIMILAN LIVEABOARD AT A GLANCE

The best way to learn to dive is on a liveaboard in the Similans. A 4 day 4 night diving safari allows you to be amongst like-minded people and those with diving experience to share. Here you will be able to learn from others and will have time to quickly build up your own diving education in the Andaman Sea. Learning to dive from a liveaboard is the easiest and most enjoyable way to learn.

START YOUR DIVING EDUCATION FROM A LIVEABOARD

If you are fairly confident that you will like diving, then a liveaboard trip offers you the best possible way to learn. The liveaboard becomes your class room, and your practice location, the beautiful Andaman Sea, is never more than a few metres away. You are surrounded by other divers who can all relate to your learning status and readily offer encouragement, advice and help.

Diving becomes your world for these days and you will finish the trip feeling like an experienced diver, rather than someone who has just completed the basic dives required.

“When learning to dive some people wonder, “what if I don’t like it?”. It’s a valid question, but more often than not, it is never dwelt on for long after your first outing underwater.”

The logistical side of the course is also much simpler on a liveaboard trip. Your instructor has more time to spend with you on the important matters at hand; teaching you all you need to know to feel confident whilst diving. Most Similan diving safaris have some means to study from the course DVDs. PADI’s flexible learning system also allows you to take your book to the beach to study in the shade of a palm tree instead, if you so wish.

MORE INFORMATION ABOUT LEARNING ON A LIVEABOARD

There are a number of courses that can be taken from a Similan liveaboard. Of course, to start your adventures into the underwater world an Open Water Course (OWC) is the first step to take. Once you have become certified as an open water diver you can continue your education with an Advanced Open Water Course and/or the Enriched Air Course.

The advanced course will help you to perfect your diving skills and increase your knowledge of this activity. It will also teach you how to dive deeper, allowing you to explore even further and it will give you an introduction to diving on Nitrox. Both OW and AOW divers can take the Enriched Air Course, this gives you a more in-depth tutorial into diving on Nitrox.
