What to Expect?
First, there's the paperwork to do the day before diving. You'll need to provide us with some basic personal information and answer some questions on your medical history. We'll check some equipment sizes and confirm arrangements for the dive day.
On the day of diving you start with a briefing from your instructor, followed by a fast boat journey to one of the amazing coral reefs in the Andaman Sea such as Koh Haa Lagoon or Koh Bida Nok for example. During the boat trip, you can try the scuba gear and get used to breathing from a scuba tank.
Once at the dive site, you'll learn some basic diving skills in shallow water with your instructor, and then you're off exploring the same coral reefs as certified divers.
You'll have a dive instructor with you at all times and can dive to a maximum depth of 12m, around 39 feet.
During your dives, you'll have a chance to see some wonderful tropical marine life around the coral reefs.
After a delicious lunch on the boat and some time for snorkeling, we'll head off to the second dive site where you'll go on the 2nd dive with your instructor.
Includes 2 dives.
Maximum 12 meters depth.
Includes lunch & soft drinks on the boat.
Includes free equipment rental.
Following your 2 dives (up to 2 hours underwater depending on your air consumption), it's time to head back to Koh Lanta, returning around 2pm.

Scuba Diving is easier than you think!
We ask that all DSD participants check-in with us at our office at Castaway Beach Resort on Long Beach the day before diving before 5pm to complete the paperwork, diver medical statement, check equipment sizes, etc. This process will normally take around 30 - 40 minutes.

Of course, you might just enjoy the Discover Scuba Diving experience so much that you'd love to join the millions of other certified divers throughout the world and continue on to get your PADI Open Water Diver certification which qualifies you to dive almost anywhere in the world!
Are you Fit to Dive?
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.
If you answer 'yes' to any of the medical questions, please print the entire form and take to your family doctor who will assess your fitness to dive and issue a medical statement which we must see before you start diving.
