After a lunch break you join our afternoon boat trip for the first two adventure dives, usually the navigation and peak performance buoyancy dives.
17:45 to 20:00 | Optional night dive: If you choose to do the night dive it will be either on day 1 or day 2, depending on our boat schedule. Jump in the water just as the sun is setting and experience diving in a totally new way.
05:45 to 11:00 | Get ready at the crack of dawn for your next two adventure dives. Enjoy a coffee and some toast on our boat while the sun rises over Koh Tao. Your first adventure dive will be the deep dive, to a maximum of 30 metres. The second dive could be the wreck dive or any other adventure dive you’ve chosen.
17:45 to 20:00 | Optional night dive: If you have not done the night dive on the first day you will head out on the second day.

To ensure your safety underwater any diver who has not been diving for 12 months or longer is required to refresh their scuba skills and dive theory knowledge. We recommend the PADI ReActivate program as it offers great value for money. If you are short on time, we also offer a scuba refresher in the swimming pool which can be done on the same day as the first adventure dives.
[social_icons type=”normal_social” icon=”fa-user-md” size=”fa-2x” icon_color=”#515151″] Please read the Medical Questionnaire carefully. The purpose of this form is to find out if you should be examined by a doctor before participating in diver training. A positive response to a question does not necessarily disqualify you from diving. A positive response means that there is a preexisting condition that may affect your safety while diving and you must seek the advice of your physician prior to engaging in dive activities. As not all conditions can be cleared on Koh Tao we strongly recommend to see a physician prior to your arrival.
