The Advanced Open Water Course in Koh Lanta is designed so that you can increase your diving confidence and build your scuba diving skills
More importantly, it’s designed so you can become more comfortable in the water. Go straight into the course after a successful completion of the PADI Open Water Diver Course. You will build on what you have already learned before and go onto new activities to have fun while scuba diving. This course consists of five adventure dives. Furthermore, two of the five dives need to be a deep dive, anywhere from 18 to 30 meters, and a navigation dive. The other three dives can be of your choice. For example, digital underwater photography dive, wreck dive, peak performance buoyancy dive, AWARE-fish identification dive, or Enriched Air dive (Nitrox). In addition to fun, each of these dives will have a set of skills that you will complete under the supervision of your instructor.
The AOWD on Koh Lanta Island is all about diving! Also, it’s a great way to get more dives under your belt in the Koh Mu National Park’s beautiful dive spots. Additionally, you can join us for a trip to Hin Daeng and Hin Muang dive sites to get a chance to see the Mantas and Whale Sharks.
