A fantastic team for a PADI IDC

I did my PADI Divemaster course with Ashley Walker in Queensland in 2013. Ash mentioned he was having a great time working in Thailand with Aussie Divers.

Ash convinced me to head to Phuket and to do my PADI Instructor Development Course with Aussie Divers Phuket.

Darren and the team really made the course a couple of weeks to remember.

Ash recommended that I do PADI IDC online and I am glad that I did. It freed me up to work on other parts of the course and even let me have a days break in the second week which I really needed.

The support I got through the IDC not only from Darren and Ash but from the whole team was unbelievable. From the moment I arrived in Phuket the whole team from the cleaner (Joy) to Darren the Course Director made me feel like I was a part of their team and not just a customer.

Many thanks to Hua and Nan (office staff), Big (Divemaster), Mike, Nina, Emily, Martin and Andre as well as the staff at Happy Days for a fantastic two weeks.

I highly recommend doing you PADI IDC with Aussie Divers Phuket.

We have been talking for a long time about re-designing our web presence to match the level of enthusiasm we have for all things related to scuba diving in Phuket, Thailand. We wanted to build a web site that could not just inform people about what we do, but one that would create a medium by which we could truly communicate with our current and future customers. We wanted a web site that you could view any where and on any device, and we definitely wanted it to be simple and easy to use. So with that in mind, welcome to our brand new web site, dedicated to bringing the Aussie Diver experience to more people than ever before, and to help bring awareness of the issues we face and the good times we have diving here in Phuket! A Diving Community What is a diving community? Well that is exactly what Aussie want to help people understand. We are not just a dive shop, we are a larger group of diving individuals with a common thread that links us all together, that thread is scuba diving, that thread is protection of the marine environment, that thread is being updated on what we can do to play our part so that the health of the worlds oceans and reefs improves and does not decline. Communities can be powerful voices for change, or they can just be a cool place to get information and find dive buddies. So we want you to come with us and be part of our dive community, a big Aussie Divers family, right here in Phuket! Mobile Friendly Today there is not much point having a web site if you can't look at it on your mobile or tablet. So we have worked hard to make sure everything on our new web site works nicely even on the smallest of screens. That way you guys can look up information on courses, day trips, dive site and read our blog with out the hassle of re-sizing and wrestling with your device!

You should quite easily be able to browse our new site with any device or internet connection available to you! We have also worked extremely hard at updating our content to be more relevant and less like reading a text book or thesis.
