How often do courses run?

Courses start every day, at around 08.00. You can book now, or come in to see see us while you’re on holiday in Ko Lanta. We offer free transfers to and from your resort in Ko Lanta for any of our dive courses or daily dive trips.

How long does each dive last?

It depends how long it takes you to breathe one tank of Air. The greater depths and pressures that we dive to, the quicker we will use our air. Often in the deep diver course your dives will be limited by your no decompression limits more than air consumption. Your air tends to last longer the more relaxed you are and the less you exert yourself underwater.

What's the next step?

Becoming a certified PADI Deep Diver is only the start!

Your next step may be to complete a further 4 PADI Specialty Courses – 5 PADI Specialties allows you to apply to be a Master Scuba Diver, the highest non-professional level in recreational diving!

What will I learn in the PADI Deep Diver Specialty Course?

The 2 day course consists of two main areas which include academic training via self-study sessions, and 4 open water deep dives:


Self-study: You’ll gain the knowledge, dive theory principles and basic information required to make your deep diving safe and fun. Learn about the additional planning, equipment considerations, safety aspects and benefits of diving to the greatest depths recommended to recreational divers and complete the knowledge review.

PADI courses are designed to help you learn in the way that’s best for you. Courses combine visual, reading, writing and practical learning techniques to ensure you really understand each section.

During the days out on the boat, you’ll complete 4 Deep Specialty dives to a maximum depth of 40m under the direct supervision of your PADI Instructor. Your first 2 dives are in the 18 m – 30 m range, and a further 2 in the 18 – 40 m range.

You’ll learn how to set a drop tank, deploy a DSMB (Delayed Surface Marker Buoy), practice planning and diving with a dive computer, and discover your reactions to nitrogen narcosis and colour loss.

PADI Course Health Requirements

You must complete and sign the PADI Medical Statement, which includes a medical-history section, to enrol in PADI scuba training programs. A positive response to a question does not necessarily disqualify you from diving but indicates a pre-existing condition that may affect your safety while diving. Your doctor would be required to complete the PADI Medical Statement & Guidelines for Recreational Scuba Diver’s Physical Examination on your behalf in this instance.
