What to Expect

The PADI Advanced Open Water Course takes only 2 days & you will be certified to 30 metres after 5 Adventure dives with 2 compulsory modules; Deep Dive to 30m and the Navigation Dive. The remaining three dives are up to you and you can choose from many options including; Peak Performance Buoyancy, Wreck Diver, Underwater Digital Imaging, , AWARE Fish ID or Naturalist, Search & Recovery, Boat Diver or Night Diver. For each dive you review a short chapter which you can do before you arrive to the island!
On the dive day we depart from the pier after paying your National Park fees and drive 20-30 minutes to the Marine Park area of Phi Phi Leh & Bida Islands for your first dive. Expect to see amazing marine life, colourful corals and fish. There is a good chance to see sharks and turtles at our local dive sites. We enjoy zero waste lunch in between dives at a beautiful spot (Maya Bay, Pileh Lagoon, Palong Bay or Viking Cave). Your second dive site we choose on the day, according to conditions & what you would like to see, then we return to the pier to log the dives. Deep dive is your first dive on Day 2 of the course & your night dive departs at 6.30pm if you choose that module.
