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! Zippy & Relevant The new web site is quite a bit faster than the old one, we've done away with embedded video and third party plugins so that we can deliver you a blisteringly fast web site experience. 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. Have a look at some of our course pages and you will notice a big focus on visual story telling rather than mountains of text. We know your time is valuable, so we only include the important stuff, you can leave all the little details to us and if there is something you want to know, just send us an email, we are always happy to hear from you! Easier To Get Around You may have noticed how on the new web site the menu will follow you as you scroll the page, this makes it super easy to navigate the web-site, and we have kept the options simple.
