Feb 22, 2019 | NEWS

We welcome you to a world of diving! Since you’re reading these lines, chances are that you’ve shown an interesting in the fascinating hobby (and passion) of scuba diving. If this is your first time, we would love to provide you with some valuable advice, making sure that you know how to properly prepare for your scuba diving trip. Here are a few pointers to get you started.

Research what sites you want to visit

When planning a diving trip, you first of all need to determine what you want to see and what you’d like to do during your trip. Some places have better visibility or stronger currents than others. It is always an advantage to know upfront when exactly you can go diving, as different seasons offer different sights and areas to behold. Of course, we’d gladly help you plan your trip and support you in every possible way during the process.

Getting an experienced instructor and knowing your skill level

If you are unsure what your skill level is, you should have an instructor with you. When diving with Nautilus Diving in Phuket, you can be certain that our professional staff knows exactly what they are doing. However, some people like to dive by themselves, without the help of an instructor. Especially when one is inexperienced, this can often lead to injuries or other unwanted outcomes. We therefore advise you to always have experienced staff with you, guiding you throughout the trip.

Diving is a sport as many others and as that, it also has several skill levels. Knowing your own skill level is fundamental in enjoying your diving trip to its fullest.

Especially beginners often overestimate their abilities and get into undesired situations that easily could have been avoided. In Phuket, there is a wide variety of beginner-sites with little to no risk of unwanted outcomes – and there is no shame in starting there!
At Nautilus Phuket, we are always ready to assist you. It is not only our job, but also our passion to dive and help others endeavor the underwater realms.
We want you to enjoy your diving trips, and your safety is in high regards to us.

Allow us to guide you through the process

At Nautilus Phuket, we can arrange everything for you related to diving, so you can focus on things that matter the most – the trip itself.
After all, its your holiday, and that means that you should relax.
