  • Trip introduction

    Even certified divers may forget scuba diving techniques if they are not diving regularly. The Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) recommends undertaking a refresher course if you haven't been scuba diving for more the six months. On this refresher course, your instructor will brief you about the theory you learnt during your previous scuba diving course followed by a training session where you will learn using scuba gear, practice buoyancy control and underwater communication gestures, along with safety tips.

    After your refresher course, you will go a boat ride across the Racha Islands to scuba dive in the Andaman Sea. You will complete three open water dives in total at Racha Noi and Racha Yai. You will see several exotic fish like manta rays, barracudas, travelly, clownfish and many colorful corals while scuba diving in these islands.

    This refresher course is for travellers who have completed PADI/SSI Scuba Diver (SD) course or higher.

    Important: The price displayed is the per person price of two people travelling together for this scuba diving refresher course.

    Destination

    You will be diving in the Racha Islands, which are located off the southern coast of Phuket and are well-known destinations amongst scuba divers and snorkellers due to its white-sand beaches and crystal clear blue waters. The water currents at Racha Yai are mild and the underwater visibility ranges from 20-25 meters (65-80 feet), making the dives suitable for all level of scuba divers. Diving at Racha Yai offers you the opportunity to swim along with the schools of barracudas, triggerfish and stingrays, along with many colorful corals.

    The Racha Noi island also features excellent visibility of up to 30 meters (100 feet), and has massive granite boulders underwater which make impressive swim-throughs and canyons. At the southern tip of Racha Noi, you will see a huge submerged pinnacle where you may see barracudas, travelly, and also the majestic manta rays, as there are cleaning stations at the southern tip. The northern part of the island offers a great drift dive experience w
