Take your diving to the next level! With the PADI Advanced Course, you will slowly build more confidence in the water, and get new skills through 5 different dives. The PADI Advanced Course extends your depth limit to 30 meter. With this depth range, you can access many fantastic dives around the world!

Out of all the diving offered on the East coast of Thailand, Koh Tao has the better of it. The island is famous for its laid back atmosphere on land. It is a cool paradise for those wanting to do their initial course or already certified divers continuing their education. It's not a lie, when said that Koh Tao is addictive. Backpackers usually end up staying for weeks. The reef has taken some damage from the tourism, but due to a massive effort to protect and rebuild the reefs, the corals and the fish life is doing really well. Koh Tao is now offering some really good diving for divers on all levels. Many dive sites are sheltered reefs with beautiful corals, good visibility, shallow depths and little to no current. Sites are reached in less than 20 minutes by boat. Deeper dive sites with pelagic marine life can be found a short 45 minute boat ride away. All year round lucky divers are encountering Whale sharks, Reef Sharks, Rays and Turtles.

Koh Tao in general is packed with different bays and beaches that are well worth visiting with your snorkeling gear. The island itself has a great size in terms of exploration, and it is easy to get around on a scooter. However, if you want a young and very vibrant vibe, Sairee beach is the place to be! The atmosphere is buzzing with hippie happy backpackers hanging out in the cafes, the beach bars and obviously on the beach itself… which is the longest and most popular beach on the island. (you will see why!)

Introduction to course
The PADI Advanced Open Water course will get you even more comfortable in the water by simply completing five adventure dives under the supervision of a PADI Instructor. If you're looking to build your confidence and gain more experience, this is the natural next step on the ladder.
The course is designed so you can go straight into it after the Open Water Diver course. The Advanced Open Water Diver course helps you increase your confidence and build your diving skills so you can become more comfortable in the water. This is a great way to get more dives under your belt while continuing to learn under the supervision of your PADI instructor. This course builds on what you've learned and develops new capabilities by introducing you to new activities and new ways to have fun diving.
You'll alter your skills by completing 5 adventure dives that introduce you to:

- Underwater navigation
- Deeper water diving (typically anywhere from 18-30 meters)
- A sample of 3 Adventure Dives of your choice



DIVE PACKAGE:
Itinerary
The PADI Advanced Open Water Course is performance based. That means you have to understand and pass the theory and perform the in-water skills correctly and with ease. Therefore, the itinerary can vary slightly from course to course. The course will take 2 to 3 days depending on the students enrolled. 5 dives will be spread out on the available days. No more than 3 training dives will be conducted each day. To give you an idea of what to expect, see the itinerary below.
Itinerary

Koh Tao - Sairee Beach - Advanced course - dorm room

Day 1: Arrive at 10am to sort out paperwork and get introduced to the course. Head out on the first 2 Adventure Dives with the afternoon boat. Come back to relax, eat some food, and perhaps head out for the Adventure Night Dive, if it appeals to you. Review the chapters of the dives with your instructor.

Day 2: Reviewing of the chapters applying for the dives of the day, then head out for your Adventure Deep Dive and perhaps followed by the amazing HTMS Sattakut Wreck Dive?

Day 3: Depending on the previous days of diving, you might already have logged your 5 Adventure Dives and be a certified Advanced Diver, or you might spend the morning with your last dive. Make sure you ask what time to check out.

Activities

5 dives

Accommodation

Both the dorm accommodation and the private bungalows are right next to the dive center, and in the middle of Sairee beach. Walk out of your room, and within 15 seconds of walking (really slowly) you will be standing on the beach, next to the dive center. The dorm rooms are just above the walking street of Sairee beach. You can look down at the dive center and the beach. The bungalows are a little more drawn back, and provide a calmer and more private setting for your sleep. The dorm rooms are fitted with 3 bunkbeds, a balcony and a private bathroom with hot water shower. The dorm rooms are fan only, (which is preferred by many divers), but for an extra fee (paid locally), you can upgrade the dorm to A/C. We try to keep boy and girl rooms seperate, but we can't guarantee that you will not be in a mixed dorm. The private bungalows come standard with the option of both A/C and a fan. Private bathroom with a hot shower and a small porch.

Local transport

The easiest way to get to Koh Tao from Bangkok, is to take either the bus or the train down South to connect with the Lomprayah High Speed Catamaran in Chumphon, for a 1,5 hour crossing to Koh Tao.
If travelling down to Koh Tao in the high seasons or around a full moon party it's always a good idea to book your bus ticket in advance!
Your travel agency can help you reserve and book your ticket.

Regardless of where you are in Thailand, your travel agency can get you to Koh Tao on the fastest and most convenient way.

To be picked up at the pier on Koh Tao, contact your dive center with your ferry information. You will find the contact details for the dive center, on your voucher.
