What can you expect from this advanced open water course in Thailand?

First you will choose your 3 elective adventure dives after consultation with one of our instructors. For each of the 5 adventure dives that you complete for the course you will have to read the chapter in the PADI Adventures in Diving E-Learning manual and fill out the corresponding knowledge reviews online. All of the theory for the Advanced course can be completed before you even arrive on the island.

All 5 dives are conducted at various dive sites with 3 dives on one day and two dives on the remaining day.

A typical course would consist of the following:

Day 1

We will pick you up at your hotel at approximately 7:00 am and take you to the boat pier. At the pier you will review your dives for the day with your instructor discuss what you will be doing on the days dives and any preparation you may need.

You will arrive at your first dive site between 8:50 and 9:20 depending on which dive site you and your instructor have chosen for the day. You will complete 2 or 3 dives during the day with lunch in between and then will return to Koh Samui between 1:15 and 3:30 depending on the dive destinations.

Day 2

Will run similar as day 1 as far as the schedule. After your dives you will return to the dive facility to complete log books/paperwork and process your PADI advanced open water certification.

We also offer an advanced open water + nitrox certification course. This course is great if you plan on using your advanced certification to do deep diving or liveaboard in the future as being certified to use nitrox can greatly extend your bottom time on dives.
