Exploration, Excitement, Experiences! That’s what the PADI Advanced Diver Course Koh Tao is all about. You don’t have to be “advanced” to take it – it’s designed to advance your diving, so you can start right after earning your PADI Open Water Diver certification. The Advanced Diver Course Koh Tao helps build confidence and expand your scuba skills through different Adventure Dives. You try out different specialties while gaining experience under the supervision of your PADI Instructor. You log dives and develop capabilities as you find new ways to have fun scuba diving.
Get credit! Each Adventure Dive may credit toward the first dive of the corresponding PADI Specialty Diver Course. If you’ve already taken a specialty diver course, ask your instructor if you’ve earned credit for an Adventure Dive.

Who should take this course?
PADI (Junior) Open Water Divers who are at least 12 years old are ready to step up and enroll in an Advanced Diver Course Koh Tao. Young divers may only participate in certain Adventures Dives – check with your PADI Instructor.
If you’re already an Adventure Diver, you only need to complete two more Adventure Dives to earn the Advanced Diver Course Koh Tao certification.
What will you learn?
You’ll plan your learning path with your instructor by choosing from a long list of Adventure Dives. There are two required dives – Deep and Underwater Navigation – and you choose the other three, for a total of five dives.
During the Deep Adventure Dive, you learn how to plan dives to deal with the physiological effects and challenges of deeper scuba diving. The Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive refines your compass navigation skills and helps you better navigate using kick-cycles, visual landmarks and time.
The other knowledge and skills you get vary with your interest and the adventures you have – photography, buoyancy control, fish identification, exploring wrecks and many more.
You may be able to get college credit for the Advanced Diver Course Koh Tao.
The Advanced Diver Course Koh Tao involves two compulsory Adventure dives: Deep and Navigation, plus three extra Adventure dives that you choose from:
- Digital Underwater Photography
- Fish Identification
- Underwater Scooter (DPV)
- Night Diver
- Multilevel and Computer
- Peak Performance Buoyancy
What languages do you teach and How many people are in each group?
We run PADI Advanced Diver Course Koh Tao in English, German, Swedish, Danish, French & Thai. We run semi-supported courses in Norwegian, Finnish, Spanish & Dutch. Please let us know if you require course materials in another language and we will order them for you. On the dive boats, we supply Drinking water, Tea, Coffee and fruit.
We keep group sizes small to ensure you receive maximum benefit from your tuition (maximum 4 students per Instructor). This also minimises negative impact on the reefs. Our emphasis is on safety, fun and personal service within a relaxed and stress-free environment.
“We keep group sizes to a minimum to ensure your underwater experiences are rewarding, safe and fun.”
