EARTH DAY 2002

SEPTEMBER 21st. 2002

Our last environmental project in February was a great success due to the assistance of P.A.D.I. Asia Pacific and the Project A.W.A.R.E. Foundation. Let’s not forget all of the environmentally friendly divers from around the globe who showed up to do their share and showed the world they care.

Our next project

For Earth Day 2002, Phuket Pro Dive & Sail, and Pro Diver Boats will be joined by P.A.D.I Course Director Mr.Lars Mueller from the Sea World Dive Team, Scuba Service and Mermaid Live A Boards in a combined effort towards the underwater cleanup of Racha Yai Island. Racha Yai is located about 12 kilometers south of Phuket and is a popular scuba training and snorkeling site for locals and tourists. We intend to restore the natural underwater attractions of this beautiful island for everyone before the upcoming high season.

Free Specialty Certification

The staff of Phuket Pro Dive & Sail and Sea World Dive Team would like to thank you for your assistance with this worth while environmental project. In return, we will be conducting the P.A.D.I AWARE Peak Performance Buoyancy Specialty or the AWARE Fish Identification Specialty for you as part of this event.That’s right! A free P.A.D.I. specialty certification as part of the cleanup program. Improve your buoyancy skills, decrease your air consumption, expend less energy and therefore get more enjoyment from your dive. Or choose the fish identification specialty and learn the names of the common and the more unique fishes and corals in our tropical waters and experience a more rewarding interaction with the marine environment with your new skills.

The Schedule

On Friday September the 20th P.A.D.I. Instructors from Phuket Pro Dive & Sail and the Sea World Dive Team will conduct the poolside and academic portions of the two AWARE specialties at Sea World’s Scuba Service location in Patong. You choose the morning (10; 00 am) or the afternoon (1;00 PM) session with free transfers to and from your hotel depending on your schedule. You will then complete the two dives for the specialties during the cleanup with your specialty instructor at beautiful Racha Yai Island on Saturday. Lunch will be served between dives on the boat and then return to Chalong Bay.
The P.A.D.I. AWARE Certificates of Recognition for the cleanup effort and the specialty diver certifications will be awarded to each participating diver at the main Phuket Pro Dive office in Chalong before the return hotel transfers.
