What's Next?

Diver-Certification-Koh-TaoAfter becoming a certified Open Water Diver, there are 2 main routes to continue. Firstly, you may decide to Fun Dive with us. Our ex-student rate is 700 THB per dive, and all students get their first 2 dives at 50% discount! Otherwise, highly recommended, is the Advanced Open Water Course. This will give you 5 additional dives in 5 different focused topics, for example night diving and wreck diving. This will certify you to dive to a depth of 30m.
