PADI Open Water Diver

This beginner course will introduce you to the world of diving under the personal guidance of an experienced professional diving instructor.

The 3-4 days course (Scuba Diver, 2 days) will provide you with the essential knowledge to become a safe diver, using state-of-the-art training aids, including online theory, videos, and dive computers.

On the first day, you will spend time in the classroom watching the Open Water Diver video, and then move to the pool, where you can put the newly acquired skills into practice.

On your first day of open water diving, you will head to Koh Bon & Koh Tachai for "training dives" to repeat and improve your newly learned skills in the colorful world of the reefs there.

After the first 2 open water dives, limited to a depth of up to 12 meters, you'll already be a PADI Scuba Diver. Two more open water dives, limited to a maximum depth of 18 meters, and you'll earn the internationally recognized certification of a PADI Open Water Diver.

Advanced Open Water/Adventure Diver

The Advanced Open Water course can be started directly after completing the Open Water course. No more "cramming" in the classroom, no final exam. The motto is Fun Diving while expanding and deepening your previously acquired knowledge through various specialty dives.

The theory consists of answering review questions online. Your diving instructor will provide you with detailed briefings regarding the specialty dives you have chosen.

In addition to the deep dive and underwater navigation, which are the "mandatory dives" of this course, you have the option to choose from specialties such as drift diving, naturalist diving, wreck diving, fish identification, among others. Unfortunately, we cannot offer dry suit and ice diving due to local conditions in the Andaman Sea.

After 3 dives, we can certify you as an Adventure Diver. After 5 dives, you will receive the certification of an Advanced Open Water Diver.

PADI Rescue Diver

The Rescue Diver course is, as many say, the most significant course for advanced divers.

After completing a First Aid course, whether here in Thailand or in your home country, you will be trained under the expert guidance of your dive instructor in theory and practice regarding accident management, problem-solving, and water rescue procedures.

The course includes theory instruction, practical sessions in open water, various dive accident simulations, and different water rescue exercises.

Certification as a Rescue Diver is a prerequisite for the Divemaster training.

Be cautious, as this course will push you to your limits and beyond!

In addition to theory in dive physics, physiology, equipment, and other areas, you will be integrated into the "normal" daily operations of the dive center. Your tasks will include dive training, supervision of dive students and certified divers, rescue exercises, and endurance training. You should allocate at least 4 weeks for this very demanding course.

Enriched Air/Nitrox

Through its simple structure, this course is suitable for every diver. You will complete the entire theory online and analyze Nitrox diving cylinders with your dive instructor. The Nitrox course is a "dry" course, without any actual dives!

Nitrox diving cylinders are available for free for divers who hold the "Enriched Air Diver" certification on our day trips.

After successful completion, you will be certified to dive with an oxygen content of up to 40% O2. Besides the advantage of increased safety, extended no-decompression limits can also be enjoyed by Enriched Air Divers during their dives.
