Discover Scuba Diving Racha Yai From Phuket

3. Discover Scuba Diving Racha Yai From Phuket

Have you always wondered what it is like to breathe underwater? If so you do not necessarily have to pay for a course to have certification. Begin your diving adventure at your own pace. During the experience, you get an introduction and briefing on scuba diving and you are taught how to use the scuba diving equipment in shallow waters. Please note that this is not a scuba diving certification. Breathing underwater is a whole new experience - it takes a few minutes to get used to it. This is not a typical human behavior and it is completely normal to be a little hesitant to put your face in the water and inhale at the beginning. However, within a few moments, your body adapts and you will be taken over by the freedom of movement while discovering the amazing marine life!

What people are saying about Phuket

This was a spectacular activity. The snorkeling was fun with lots of colorful fish; the Thai lunch was delicious, and the beach was gorgeous. At first we weren’t sure whether we needed an English speaking guide, but we were glad we had one in the end. Great value for money

Very good guide and other staff A little music so there is better atmosphere on the boat. Maybe stay and eat on an island

Super crew, very nice guide! It was a great day. Only the time of 12 hours is incorrect. Maybe that should be changed.

Fabulous well organised trip, food and crew were amazing, I recommend this trip to everyone

Outing was super good, but with the pickup time of almost 45 minutes was not Ok
