Advanced Scuba Diving on Koh Tao

Advanced Scuba Diving on Koh Tao

Do you want to continue your scuba diving training at Koh Tao after your open water course? There are so many scuba diving courses on Koh Tao to explore once you have your open water license but a lot of them, and around Asia, go below the 18m level, which is your depth limit of the open water course.

You do not have to go deeper as you can see everything as the waters are very clear but would it not be better to be able to go deeper and a have look at something interesting?

What Is The Advanced Course About?

You learn a little bit more theory but you are taught a lot more skills with the focus on practical knowledge and skills beyond the open water course that you can start to apply to all your future scuba diving on Koh Tao and beyond.  Our normal schedule is a 10 am start for this diving course for the theory and briefing of skills for the dives.

For this advanced scuba diving certification on Koh Tao we start with Navigation and Perfect Buoyancy dives in the afternoon as you will use the skills learned on the remaining dives. You learn to use a compass and natural navigation and work on your trim, diving techniques, and weight position.

Next is a Night dive, an amazing experience to see everything illuminated by torchlight. 

The next morning we make a Deep dive to 30m and normally a Wreck dive on the HTMS Sattakut, sunk on purpose for diver training so it is perfect.  And that is it.  There is no exam or theory test; just learning new skills from your instructor and applying these to your course and future dives.

5 dives in 24 hours. Done, another scuba diving course Koh Tao completed! And you get the SSI Advanced Adventurer certification.
