DIVE CENTER NEWS (updated 25th February 2013)
Oceanic Branches out after Thirteen Years as a PADI 5* IDC Center
|After thirteen years as a PADI Five Star IDC Centre, we want to offer our divers more. Within the PADI accreditation system, five star status is the highest accolade for dive centres, and we're proud to have met the critera every year since 1999. Now we want to give our divers more choice and so we have decided to become a Multiple-Agency Diver Training Centre offering SSI as well as PADI. Our excellent Five Star facilities are still the same, and so are our excellent Five Star instructors, and Five Star rental equipment, but now you have the choice of which Diver Certification you prefer to hold. With SSI growing year on year, and recognised worldwide in all the places PADI have reached, and more, we're proud to become their newest member, and offer our members more choice.
The Mantas are back again! Similans liveaboards
It's been a great season in the Similans again this year. Since the National Park re-opened in November, we've had a bumper year with boats filling up very quickly. After seeing very few mantas since Christmas, this week they seem to be coming back to Koh Bon and Koh Tachai. Two of our divers reported a grey reef shark last week and several white tips too. If you want your chance to swim with these beautiful creatures then check out our hand-picked selection of boats on our Phuket Liveaboard Boats page. We offer the full range from budget to 5-star luxury but they all share one thing in common... a proven track-record of excellence in customer service and safety. Please email us for more information firstname.lastname@example.org
Phi Phi Islands Overnight Dive Trip Special Offer
This is always considered a special trip because of the great dive staff, lovely air-conditioned accommodation on Phi Phi, delicious food and, not forgetting, the amazing diving! At 10,900 Baht per diver it's already special value, but this year we can offer the same, amazing diving with a no-accommodation option for those that already have somewhere to stay on Phi Phi, or are happy staying somewhere more budget than the high-standard hotel used on the trip. If you book the trip and opt to book your own hotel or hostel, it will cost just 7,900 Baht. For more details, please check out our Phi Phi Diving page on this site or contact us by phone or email.
Hin Daeng, Hin Muang & Koh Ha... superstar dive sites!
Sometimes it seems all the attention in the diving community of Phuket is on the world-famous Similans, so these other treasures of the Andaman are often overlooked. Just a bit too far for a daytrip, Hin Daeng (Red Rock) and Hin Muang (Purple Rock) are described in more detail at this link and we visit them on shorter 2, 3 or 4 night liveaboard trips which will also visit the enchanting islands Koh Ha and Phi Phi and the ever popular Shark Point. On previous trips the divers were treated to whalesharks, mantas, mobulas, seahorses, ornate ghostpipefish and many more fabulous surprises. These trips run throughout the year, so even when the Similans closes for the low season in May, you can still get in some wonderful diving and experience the convenience and camaraderie of life on board a liveaboard dive boat.
Half-day and Day Trips for diving and snorkling around Phuket every day.
Now the conditions on Phuket's Western beaches are fabulous for divers, snorkelers and swimmers. If you're short on time then join us for a beach dive in the morning or afternoon. All of the daytrip dive sites are getting better and better every day. If you like to be out on the open ocean, the conditions are always superb at our popular diving and snorkelling sites at Racha Yai. Snorkellers and divers of all abilities will find what they're looking for diving at Phi Phi too. For divers with a little more experience, our daily trips out to King Cruiser Wreck, will astound you with the number and varieties of schooling fish around the wreck.
Please do be aware, though, that not every day can offer perfect conditions for your daytrip. Even in our "Dry" Season the weather can change and on days when the wind blows the sea can get a little rough and uncomfortable. So don't take any chances, take advantage of our reputation as "the friendliest dive center in town"! Drop in for a chat or email us for the latest weather forecast and genuine advice about the best trips and the best days for you to choose. Our email address: email@example.com
