Depending on the season we may have the chance of reef sharks, leopard sharks, bamboo sharks & turtles along with all the regular marine life that we are so lucky to have in Thailand.

Classes run for 2 days by necessity. We need to get in 5 dives for your advanced certification and the requirement is no more than 3 training dives per day. We can do a combination of boat and beach dives depending on your preference!


The PADI Advanced Open Water course takes you directly to some of the best diving locations in Phuket to learn new skills. You will complete the knowledge sections at your own leisure before starting the course and will review those together with your instructor prior to every dive as part of the briefing. This advanced diving course will prepare you for some of the more challenging and exciting diving locations.
