Get back in the water here on Koh Lanta

If you have a diving certification and have not dived for a while then we can help you get back into the water with a Scuba Skills Refresher while diving on Koh Lanta.

Scuba Skills Refresh on Koh Lanta with Dive & Relax

Keeping your diving knowledge and skills up to date is a very important part of diving safely. Over time however, skills and knowledge are forgotten, resulting in problems remembering how to check equipment properly, taking a long time to descend, equalising ears, properly adjusting buoyancy and so on.

Do I Need a Scuba Skills Refresher?

You may be surprised by what you have forgotten, and our team of professional and friendly staff will be more than happy to bring you back to the underwater world.

We aim to create a safe environment for diving and to do this, we recommend taking a refresher if you have not dived for some time:

  • Did not dive for 6 months or more? you have less than 10 dives? you should consider a refresher.
  • Did not dive for 1 year or more? you have less than 25 dives? you should consider a refresher.
  • Did not dive for 2 years or more? you have less than 100 dives? you should consider a refresher.
  • Did not dive for 3 years or more? you should consider a refresher.

Why refreshers are essential after a break from diving.

Where will I do a Scuba Skills Refresher on Lanta?

There are many suitable dive sites for a Scuba Skills Refresher, such as the Koh Haa Islands, Koh Rok, or the Bida Islands for example.

If your dive skills are looking good and our staff agree then you can also book a dive to the further away and more challenging dive sites of Hin Daeng & Hin Muang (depends on previous dive experience).

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 fitness or 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.
