Personal Teaching Methods

learn at your own pace - flexible PADI courses designed around your needs

Learn to dive at your own pace with our friendly, approachable PADI Instructors and our personal teaching methods.


We believe small is best when it comes to scuba diving on Lanta, so we promise you small groups or individual tuition if you prefer, learning tailored to your own pace, unbeatable personal service, flexible pool diving times to fit around your holiday plans or family’s needs, and above all, a great time!

Our team of professional PADI Instructors have a combined 20+ years teaching experience! Each instructor has their forte, and understands that learning to dive can be daunting for a number of individual reasons. Do any of these sound like you?

  • I am very nervous about learning to dive.
  • I have concerns about swimming.
  • I am scared of deep water.
  • I am worried about the marine life I may encounter.
  • I have tried diving before and had a less-than-enjoyable experience.
  • I don’t know if I can equalise.
  • I have children with me.
  • Our whole family is here.
  • I am a bit older and wonder if I can dive.
  • I have a disability and wonder if I could still dive.

None of these issues are insurmountable…in fact they are quite common concerns and situations which we are experienced, understanding and adept at dealing with!!

Our aim is to ensure you feel you can place your trust in your instructor, enabling you to relax, ask questions, and build your confidence, skills and knowledge.

We hope that we are the lucky ones who will have the privilege of sharing your first breathes underwater, and experiencing the amazing underwater world with you. So come and make the most of our personal teaching methods.
