SSI Adventurer & PADI Advanced Diver Course & Certificate in Phuket

PADI Advanced Open Water Diver courseThe SSI Adventurer & PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course is in many ways the best Dive Course of all diving courses – there are no theory lessons to attend, no quizzes or a final test to pass. The dive course is an experienced based course – the idea is to give the students divers 5 introduction dives for 5 distinguished dive specialities. The course is done with Merlin Divers dive club over 2 days of diving.

SSI & PADI determined that every Adventurer or Advanced Open Water Diver needs to have the experience of a Deep dive and a Navigation dive.

The additional required 3 dives are up to the student’s interest and preferences. Since there are a few wrecks around Phuket a natural choice is the Wreck dive.

Also, very popular are the following speciality dives: peak performance buoyancy, multilevel diving, underwater photography, fish identification, drift diving, wreck diving, boat diving – just to mention a few.

Special considerations

The specific program of each course is always discussed in details with participants and Merlin Divers Scuba Diving center and school tries the best to accommodate any special request.

The Benefits Of Becoming a PADI Divemaster

Most of all, a benefit for PADI Divemasters that is overlooked, but in the eyes of Merlin Divers dive instructors is quite positive, is the great sense of accomplishment and the rewarding feelings of self-esteem, self-confidence and self-respect associated with successfully completing the PADI Divemaster course.

And so for many Divemaster candidates, having faced the challenges, sometimes even surpassing their personal limits are the greatest rewards and accomplishment they seldom achieve through other aspects of their lives.
