Experience the best that Thailand has to offer!

Vast species diversity of marine life, excellent diving spots, comfortable boats and much more – our offer might be completely personalised, depending on your scuba diving skills, experience and general conditions. You have no diving license yet? Don’t worry – you can go either for Discover Scuba Diving program (diving intro for those who are not sure yet if diving’s their kind of activity) or for Open Water Diver course to start your diving adventure! We’re 5* PADI dive centre, and for the last years we’ve trained hundreds of students on different skills levels – starting from OWD up to OWSI, technical, wreck, deep and cavern diving!

What is the Open Water Diver course, you may ask? It’s the best adventure you can give yourself. Start with PADI's online eLearning course. Move to the pool and practice your new skills. Then experience four open water (ocean/lake) dives.

The skills include selection, functional testing, preparation and transport of scuba equipment. You'll learn how to plan your dives, how to prepare and set up for a dive. Water entry, descent, breathing underwater, monitoring the dive profile (depth, time and decompression status), personal breathing gas management, situational awareness, communicating with the dive team, buoyancy and trim control, mobility in the water, ascent, emergency and rescue procedures, exit from the water won't be stressful for you anymore. Disassembling after the dive, cleaning and preparation of equipment for storage and recording the dive, within the scope of the diver's certification. The amount of time spent on skill and confidence development is generally proportional to the length of the training programme, as the necessary skills are usually learned relatively quickly.

The exact time and detailed schedule of the diving day are up to the boat leader and will be announced on the boat briefing in the morning.
