We are a dual-agency training center offering PADI and SSI courses in Phuket.
Oceanic became a PADI 5 star dive center in 1999, and we set the standard for diving in Phuket for many years. In 2012 we decided to offer our divers more choice, and we joined SSI (Scuba Schools International) to become one of Phuket's first dual-agency dive centers. While our facilities and excellent standards have not changed, it is prohibited to hold PADI's "5 Star" name while also offering SSI courses (or any other training agency). We offer dive courses in several languages, from the beginning level (Open Water Diver) to professional level (Divemaster). We also arrange try dives (Try Scuba, Discover Scuba Diving). If you're unsure of whether to choose PADI or SSI, we can advise you, based on your own experience and expectations.
Getting to know you...
Avoid the bubble factories! When you're learning to dive in Phuket, or anywhere else on the planet, you're undertaking an activity that does not come naturally to humans - breathing underwater! For many first-time divers, breathing on scuba goes against every instinct in the brain. So, while you're learning to dive, you want the reassurance that your dive instructor is watching you closely, has assessed your in-water strengths and weaknesses, and is going help you, every step of the way, to make it as easy as possible for you.
At Oceanic, we keep dive training personal: your instructor will be the same throughout your whole dive course; your class size will be small; you will get to know the whole Oceanic team, and feel like one of the family straight away.
