SSI SCUBA Diving Courses in Phuket – Serious Diving, Serious Fun!

Since 2012 Oceanic have been teaching SSI dive courses in Phuket, and the owners have actually been certified SSI instructors since 2007. So we know a thing or two about helping people learn to dive! While we trust our instructors to do a great job, we still get involved with every course that's run at Oceanic, so that you will feel less like a customer and more like one of the diving family.


Come to Oceanic for the best SSI Dive Courses in Phuket

Our aim is to create confident, happy divers, and that is more important to us than profit. We give personal attention to every SSI course we conduct here at Oceanic in Kata, Phuket.

Every one of our team of SSI instructors has a proven record of excellence in teaching diving. When we take on a new instructor we're not just looking for their diver training credentials, although, of course they are very important: but we also want our instructors to have empathy, patience, and enthusiasm for their work. In other words, we're all "people people"! And it shows, the minute you walk into the dive center in Kata, you will feel like a member of the Oceanic club!

SSI Dive Courses

You don't need any previous experience to learn to dive in Phuket. In fact, we can offer the SSI Try Scuba program to anyone over the age of 8 years old, even if you've never once been in the sea! During our dry season (between November and April) we can dive at our amazing reefs at Kata beach and Karon beach. Or, year-round we can take you to Racha Yai and Racha Noi.

The SSI Open Water Diver course, is the entry level certification. This certifies you to dive with a buddy anywhere in the world, and it takes three days.

For divers who are already certified, we can offer the SSI Advanced Adventurer, or SSI specialties, like the Stress and Rescue specialty, which is also your next step on the way to becoming a diving professional!
