Joining the course

We teach Advanced Open Water Diver Courses during our day trips (you have to join 3 day trips in order to get certified) and during our dive tours in Thailand and Myanmar (Burma).

At dive sites like Richelieu Rock it is very exciting to make a Naturalist Dive, as you will spot lots of different animals living with and near the varying corals. The dive site Koh Tachai is one of the dive sites which offer us very good conditions to make a splendid Deep Dive with you. While diving at the ridge and the wall of Koh Bon, we can show you in real time how to make a Multi Level Dive in a proper way.
