Any Divers on Here?????

 

Just looking to see if any members are divers?

 

If so, any recommendations for Dive Charters?

 

I’ve used South Asia Divers and they where pretty good…. Great staff and cool Dive Masters…. Although it was a couple years ago, so there may have been a changing of the guard.

 

On the same note if any one is looking to team up for a dive I’d be game….

I’ve been diving awhile, and always float to the surface eventually….

I was B.S.A.C. 2nd class for 20 years and some of the best dives I had where in the UK, especialy in the Northern Isles.

 

Some very testing waters.

Great to see a few Divers kickin' around.... I'll probubly Use Mermaids Charter this time around, I've herd lots of good things! I'll be in town MAR 15th through to the APR 8th or so if anyone is looking to go for a dip.....

 

I've got around 10 years diving time, and would consider myself a good safe dive buddy (PADI, and ACUC Advanced open water, plus a few other certs).....

Advanced open water diver here. Just got back 2 days ago to the great white North from 31 days in Thailand. Did a liveaboard out of Phuket to the Similan Islands. Have done the Great Barrier off Australia, and the Similans are a close second. The food was amazing, but they need some girls on the boats!!!

 

I would recommend checking out the Similans and doing a liveabord. Went with Ocean Divers in Patong, and they had a good package, a good boat, and a great cook. The crew was awesome too.

 

Missing Pattaya like mad, spent 10 days there. Can't wait to get back

If it floats, flies or fucks, RENT IT!!!!! "He who hesitates, masturbates"

A friend of mine owns a divingcompany in Phuket - they are specialized for tech-diving and rebreather-diving and the onliest base in Phuket for this...so it's for real freaks!

I have been diving over 30 years spend some time underwater every LOS trip. Around Pattaya I think Mermaids runs a decent operation - not a lot of hand-holding micro management.

 

But for outstanding diving you have to head over to Phuket a get a fast boat to the Similans area - outstanding...but you will miss Pattaya :P

I have never been but would love to try diving. One question for you experienced divers, are there any masks avaialble that will seal well inspite of my moustache?? Every time I have tried a mask or goggles, it has leaked badly due to the moustache.

Rick,

 

I know you posted this quite a while back but here goes: One trick is to use vaseline on your mustache to help create a seal. Another is to stretch your upper lip as far down as possible over you mouth when seating your mask so it can seal @ the base of your nose, that seemed to work fine for me until I opted for no mustache at all. I hope this helps.

I hold a PADI Rescue cert and have done a few dives in Patts.

The first time I went it was with a guy named Max Foster he had a small dive shop but the last two times I was there I could not locate him.

The next two times I went through Mermaids good outfit.... The diving in Patts is ok but I've been told by most of my friends that the Similans and Phuket beats it hands down but, I'll dive Patts when I return

I've been pretty lucky with my masks, but using vasiline or silicone works pretty well, good luck......Mark

Too many late nights and too much muff diving recently to get underwater. Got PADI advanced open water and hope to get back into SCUBA soon.

I did my open water with Mermaids 2 which is located on Beach rd at Tipp Plaza next to the Subway. Great instructors who made sure you learned what you needed but in a fun way. They dive daily of thier own boat and cater for all levels of divers. (Apart from Muff divers !! :25: )

 

There web site is - http://www.divecentrepattaya.com/ and the guy who runs it is called Dave. He's an English guy who's a good laugh and likes the odd beer or seven. I'll hopefully be doing my advanced with them in August.

40 years under, PADI and B.S.A.C. Been fortunate to dive most places, the most stunning for me was Sipedan Island off Borneo; left the Maldives & Belize standing. Have never made it to the GBR

PADI Divemaster and been diving since 98. Learnt in the Cayman Islands and lived there for 2 years. Have dived in Caymans, Red Sea, Thailand, Australia, Borneo & Sulawesi, Bahamas, Coco's Islands, Burma and Galapagos. The most outstanding diving I have done was in the Coco's Islands.

 

Lem, where exactly are you planning on diving? This is a good liveaboard, but she is now out of Thai waters. http://www.ocean-rover.com/

 

PM me and I may be able to give you some advice?

I just did the Discover Scuba Diving course with Mermaids - very good indeed. I am going on to do the other 3 days to get the basic PADI qualification (and was offered a free extra day of diving by the Aussie guy on Beach Road, Siam Bayview Hotel). I'm hooked

PADI MSD. If you fancy diving British waters, I can recommend a quarry near Peterhead that`s fucking freezing!

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6 
      6th of June - Illuzion
      13th of June - (next bar we have open)

      I look forward to meeting people again.
