AP Inspo CCR Advanced Trimix Course in Phuket
Ben Reymenants has just finished the IART AP Inspo CCR Advanced Trimix course with Michael M down here in Phuket. Michael is from Melbourne Australia and has dived the unit for over a year now and is Advanced Wreck diver.
The IART AP Inspo CCR Advanced Trimix course teaches the CCR INSPO AP diver to safely dive to a depth of 100 meters. As we do not have those depths here in Phuket, on the Phuket Dive sites, we take our students to the lake of Song Hong in Thung Yai, Nakon Sri Thamarat Province, down South of Thailand. This lake also has caves which can reach a depth of 180 meters.
Normally we conduct this course over 5 days total.
The first day is here in Phuket where you do a classroom session and a pool session in the afternoon. The next day you are going on one of the Phuket Dive Boats where you will be doing 3 dives. Depending on your level the instructor decides on the pool day how deep the first dive on the boat will be. The 3rd day is an other classroom/pool day and the preparation for the deep dives in the lake. Day 4 and 5 will be conducted in Thung Yai.
For these course we do recommend you are an Advanced Wreck diver or Caber/Intro to cave diver. This is because the cave has a heavy overhang which means you get into “overhead environment” and we think its safer to have at least 1 or 2 certifications for overhead.
CCR Cave Courses
Michael stayed after his AP Inspo CCR Advanced Trimix course and had 1 week of relaxing down here in Phuket before he started his CCR cave courses. The CCR cave course, for all 3 levels, takes 7 days/6 nights and is held in Thung Yai and a few caves in Krabi and Ao Luk.
