If you're already PADI Open Water (or equivalent from another dive organisation) then why not improve your diving skills and get certified to dive to 30m? Better buoyancy and confidence in the water means better air consumption and longer dives!
The PADI Advanced Open Water course consists of 5 Adventure Dives, each one being an introduction to a different specialist diving area. You have many different dives to choose from, however you must complete the Deep Diver and Underwater Navigation dives to qualify as an Advanced Open Water diver; the other three are up to you!
We like to teach the PADI Advanced Open Water diver course over 3 days, 2 dives per day. With a total of 6 dives, learning is at a relaxed pace, giving you more time to practice your new skills, enjoy the diving and of course, your holiday on Koh Lanta.
If you have not been diving for a while then we will also include a free Scuba Skills Refresher on the first dive.
The PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course includes 2 mandatory Adventure Dives, Underwater Navigation Dive and Deep Dive.

We love to dive as much as possible, however all our trips depend on the weather, sea conditions, currents and minimum numbers and may be subject to change at short notice.
We may schedule a Shark Point & Anemone Reef trip or a KledKaeo Wreck trip on Saturdays, upon request, minimum 4 divers required - please let us know if you are interested.
Whilst scuba diving is a very safe activity, it is important to know that you are fit to dive and that you do not have any medical conditions that could increase your risk of an accident underwater.
