Course Overview

Ever been on a dive holiday but had to miss out on a great site because it was considered too deep for you to go to? Heard of a wreck at 30 metres plus that you'd like to visit but it is beyond your current experience levels. Now is the time to change all that by diving to the maximum depth limits for recreational divers of 40 metres whilst being aware of the risks and understanding the procedures to follow to ensure a safe dive. The course includes insights into nitrogen narcosis, the effects of pressure on objects and colour loss.

Dive Site Options

Choose from four options for your dive experience:

  • Racha Yai Island - Generally clear water, wonderful marine life with dives in sheltered bays make this an ideal starting place especially for those who are a little nervous. Read more
  • Racha Noi and Yai Islands - A great mix of landscapes and marine life in quieter dive spots. Occasionally larger wildlife is spotted here including turtles and large rays. Read more
  • Phi Phi Islands - Beautiful scenery both above and below the water with very colourful reefs and a chance of a turtle or a shark. It can sometimes be more challenging to dive here though as the sites are more open to both waves and underwater currents. Read More
  • King Cruiser wreck + 2 of Anemone reef/Koh Doc Mai/Shark Point - The most challenging option but worth the effort with a great variety of dive sites. Only suitable for those with Advanced Open Water diver certification or higher. Read more
