Discover Scuba Diving

If you don't have the time for full diver training, but would like to experience the ease and thrill of diving, join us for our one day program. Our Instructors will teach you the basic theory of breathing underwater and familiarize you with the equipment before accompanying you on two beautiful controlled dives to limited depth at local coral reefs.

Open Water Course

The Open Water Course is for the beginner who would like to get certified with the basic entry level qualification. This course gives you all the required knowledge and skills necessary to make your diving safe and fun.

One day of the course is devoted to diving theory and practice, with five knowledge modules, four short quizzes, the final exam. Another day is aimed to teach you the basic skills in the safety of a confined water environment. Here we cover all the safety skills, and do a 200 metre swim test. The remaining two days include four open water training dives under the supervision of your instructor, while allowing you to develop your diving skills whilst enjoying the tropical reefs of the Tarutao National Marine Park.

After completion of the course, you will become certified as an internationally recognized PADI Open Water Diver, and will be able to dive to a maximum depth of 18m without the supervision of an dive professional.

Scuba Review

If it's been a while since your last dive, or you feel that your skills and knowledge are a little 'rusty', then take this PADI refresher course. Our Instructors and Divemasters will review your diving theory and skills, making sure that you haven't forgotten anything!

This short one-day course includes a basic theoretical review, confined water training, and two fun dives.

Advanced Open Water Course

Here you have the chance to expand and continue your diving education under the guidance of a PADI Instructor.

You will complete two 'core' dives in underwater navigation and deep diving after receiving academic training in these areas. You will also select and complete three 'elective' dives in areas such as peak-performance buoyancy, multilevel, wreck, drift, night, fish ID, underwater naturalist, digital underwater photography and boat diving.

The Advanced Course can be combined with beach dives and day trips. You choose what option interests you the most! If you have difficulty deciding, your Instructor will help you choose the specialty training that is right for you.

Emergency First Response Course

Emergency First Response (EFR) is a basic course in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and emergency care. You learn simple, logical steps that you can take to assist somebody who needs help. With practical application and hands on experience this course becomes beneficial for both diver and non-diver.

The Emergency First Response course meets the certification requirements for several PADI courses, including Rescue Diver.

Rescue Diver Course

The PADI Rescue Diver course is a dive life-saver course designed to develop the necessary knowledge and skills for you to effectively perform a rescue, manage a diving-accident situation and administer proper first aid.

Although the nature and context in which such training may be used is very serious, you’ll find the course both interesting and challenging, whilst still being enjoyable. The primary objective of this course is to prevent the need for the use of rescue skills. A good diver does not only solve problems, but prevents them in the first place!

The course includes five academic sessions and twelve in-water training exercises over a minimum of three days.

The PADI Rescue Diver rating is a prerequisite for all PADI leadership programs including Dive Master and Instructor.

Divemaster Course

To begin your professional career in diving, you’ll need to attain the PADI Divemaster rating. After successfully completing Advanced Open Water and Rescue Diver training, you’ll work closely with a PADI Instructor to expand your diving skills and knowledge to the professional level.

Then, in the most fulfilling part of your course, you’ll learn and practice supervising diving activities and assisting with student training.

Medical Checklist

We advise our customers to have a look at the PADI medical checklist before they sign up for a dive course.

If you have to say “yes” to one of the questions, please see your doctor/physician before you start the course to make sure that you are fit to dive and please bring a medical statement to show us*.

For the divemaster course it’s mandatory to bring a medical statement from a physician*.

*Note: there is no full-time doctor/physician on Koh Lipe and so you will need to obtain any medical statements on the mainland or back in your home country before you leave.
