We have a Contri compressor here in Koh Lipe, which has an external filter system. Our filter is changed every 50 hours so you can know that you will be diving with clean air when diving Koh Lipe.
In addition to our compressor we also so have an oxytronic continuous flow Nitrox system. So nitrox tanks are available for your dives or you can complete your Nitrox Course here also. Most of the diving on Koh Lipe is quite shallow so air tanks are also fine to use.
We do have a wreck which is quite deep and it is nice to dive on a nitrox blend of 28% to get a longer bottom time. The bottom of the wreck sits at 40 metres and the top around 28 metres. So this is a deep dive. If you dive this site on air (21% oxygen) you will only have a bottom time of around 20 minutes. If you opt for a Nitrox tank you can get around 40 minutes down on the wreck. You have to have you Advanced Open Water or Deep Speciality to dive this site.
We have 9, 12 & 15 litre aluminium tanks available depending on your air consumption. All our tanks are serviced yearly. For our tanks we use mainly Yoke Valve but we do have a few DIN tanks available or a DIN adaptor.
Our beautiful classroom is a shelter outside classroom. You can sit here to watch your diving theory before you start the practical exercises. The classroom is located 40 m from Sunrise beach so you can take a break and go swimming or sunbathing.
If you sign up in advance of coming to dive in Koh Lipe we can send you a E-Book before arriving. This will allow you to get ahead of the theory before coming to Koh Lipe. Please read our blog about E-books.
We also have some portable DVD players if you would prefer to do your theory in the comfort of your own room. Unfortunately our outside classroom does not have air-con just natural wind & fans. If you have a air con room and would prefer to watch your dive theory there, you can take the portable DVD to your room.
Another option is to do you theory at home online before you come on holiday with PADI E-learning. PADI Elearning is a great way to complete all your theory before coming on holiday. This means you can spend more time diving or enjoying the island as you have already complete all the theory at home. Please read our blog about PADI Elearning or click below to sign up to our online classroom.
We don’t advise people to sign up for Elearning for Advanced Open Water theory as there is not a lot of theory to do. We can send you the Online Manual before arriving and you can complete this before arriving.
