This course concentrates on giving you more experience in diving in different conditions, depths and using new equipment (dive computer). This certification allows you to dive to a maximum depth of 30m, opening up more dive sites for you to explore!
Doing your Advance Open Water course on our livaboards will give you a great advantage by having an instructor for several days, giving you more time and better quality training while making it easier as you don't need to perform in the traditional 5 dives but you can strech the course to a more relaxed gradual progress.
For this course you will get the "Adventures in diving" manual from which you will study 5 dives/chapters. Two of them being compulsory: Deep and Navigation. The other 3 dives you can choose. The course consists of 2 segments: Knowledge Development and an Open Water dive. This means that is a practical course, no theoretical examination, but just a review over the key points from the chosen dives and the actual dive from which you will receive feedback.

Why not combine the Advanced Course with a specialty, such as, the Nitrox course
Price 6,800 Baht
4 tanks of nitrox
Dive computer for nitrox dives
This is our most popular speciality. This course is the perfect choice for recreational divers and professionals, especially on Liveaboards. Commonly our staff dive on Nitrox reducing the amount of Nitrogen in their bodies and its effects. You are taught how to extend your bottom times and parameters of safety are increased. The course does not involve in water skills, but is more focused on theory, although not intensive it will teach you the considerations of diving with a higher percentage of oxygen (from 21 to 40%).
