Padi Enriched Air Specialty Diver Course Summer Special

PADI Enriched Air Specialty Course - Liveaboard Style

Scuba Cat Diving, Phuket, Thailand's large catamaran liveaboard MV Scuba Cat moored close to shore in a beautiful protected cove provides an ideal floating classroom, dive shop, restaurant and hotel all in one superb package. Without a doubt this is certainly the most convenient and enjoyable way to learn to dive or continue your training to new levels.

Spending time on the liveaboard allows getting to know your instructor much better as well as making the meeting many new diver friends a natural and enjoyable process. The amount of pertinent information and new insights gained will far exceed that which you have learned in the classroom and so much fun as well.

Our mooring at Racha Island is literally surrounded by dive sites and beautiful clear water. There are shallow sandy areas for demonstration of dive skills and navigation exercises, abundant marine life of a wide variety of fish, invertebrate and coral species for identification skills and underwater photography. Add to this our own artificial reef, Marla’s Mystery, for tailor made deep, wreck and nitrox training. The gentle slope into deeper waters provides the perfect depths for the PADI/ DSAT Tec Deep and Tec Trimix Diver courses.

The convenience of being surrounded by dive sites and the efficiency of sleeping on the boat means that our courses always include extra diving- 50% more in the case of the Open Water Diver course! These extra dives are done at a much more relaxed pace than on the normal day trip schedule- win win.

Enriched Air Diver saves you time by allowing you to:

- Stay underwater longer.

- Get back into the water sooner.

- Get your certification while simultaneously completing dives for other PADI courses.

Plus, by diving with Enriched Air Nitrox you may feel less tired after diving. For example, if you dive to 15 metres/50 feet on air, your no decompression limit is 80 minutes. But, diving on EANx36 gets you 220 minutes of no decompression time - an increase of 140 minutes! It's perfect for underwater photographers, wreck divers and anyone who wants to stay down longer.
