The PADI Adventure Diver course takes only 1 day and includes academic session with your Instructor, a little bit of homework and 3 exciting adventure dives. We recommend to have the orientation of the course a day prior to starting, so you have enough time for the homework. However, if you are really short on time one day will be just fine.
Anytime | Orientation: After check in you will receive the PADI Adventures in Diving Manual and complete all the necessary paperwork. Choose which adventure dives you wish to do and receive the knowledge reviews to the according chapters.
Homework | Complete the 3 knowledge reviews of your preferred adventure dives.
08:30 to 17:00 | Meet your Instructor at the dive centre, correct your homework and discuss all the questions you may have. After a lunch break you join our afternoon boat trip for the two adventure dives of your choice.
17:45 to 20:00 | Night dive: Go for your third dive of the day just as the sun is disappearing in the ocean and explore Koh Tao’s underwater world at night.

If you haven’t been diving for 12 months or longer a scuba refresher is required to ensure your safety underwater. We recommend the PADI ReActivate program as it offers great value for money. If you are short on time, alternatively you can do a scuba refresher in the swimming pool. This can be done on the same day as your PADI Adventure Diver course.

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.
