SSI Stress and Rescue Diver Course

Take the next step and become a rescue diver.

Hard work but serious fun!

Best dive center in Koh Lipe!

Best dive center in Koh Lipe! I did my Rescue Diver course and a few fun dives here. Many thanks to my instructor Dan and my divemaster Ris for this awesome experience.

The dive center is close to Sunrise Beach and with their speed boat they can reach every dive spot within a few minutes.

    10% Discount on all Diving Courses and Dive Trips during our Green Season from May to October!

    What’s Included!

    Prices are fully inclusive of diving equipment rental, lunch, drinking water, diving insurance & dive instructor fees.

    Diamond Access Upgrades

    The online theory is only available for 3 months or until after certification if you wish to have unlimited access to online materials then there is an additional 1,000 THB surcharge.

    E-Card Certification

    We have opted to only use E-certification cards using the MySSI Dive App to reduce plastic. If you would like to order a plastic card this is still possible but with a 1,000 THB surcharge.


    Cut down the amount of hours spent in the classroom on your diving holiday, and sign up on the MySSI app. Complete the theory portion in your own time at home! This means more time in the water when you get here and less time in the classroom!

    The SCUBA Diver Course will then take only 2 days!

    Enroll in the SSI Stess and Rescue Diver Course Online for immediate on your computer tablet or mobile based access to the Open Water Manual and Video. Integrated into seamless, guided online learning.

      About the Course

      This is the first time as a recreational diver that you have to start thinking about other divers as well as yourself. The course reviews self rescue techniques, rescue of other divers, missing diver scenarios, as well as recognising diver stress or panic in others and the correct way to respond.


      We start on dry land reviewing the rescue course video and theory chapters. After this you will complete all the knowledge reviews for each chapter. You are also required to make an emergency action plan, followed by a final exam.

      Dive Skills

      You practice new rescue skills in confined water sessions off our beautiful beaches. Starting with self rescue, you refresh many of the skills from the Open Water Course. Rescue Skills included dealing with tired and panicked divers and responding to both responsive and non responsive divers in trouble.

      The Fun Stuff

      The last parts of the course are the final scenarios, which can be sprung on you at anytime. You will put together all that you have learnt in this course and deal with a fully unresponsive diver situation, from underwater to land! It is a seriously fun course that will transform the way you think about diving!

      You can expand your knowledge of emergency equipment by enrolling in our Oxygen Provider Course which can be done alongside your Rescue Course.

        Diamond Rescue Bundle

        Price – 18,000 THB

        Duration – 3/4 days

        We offer a Diamond Rescue Bundle including React Right and Stress and Rescue speciality courses. The two courses can be combined together, by first learning CPR and first aid on land, then learning the practical parts off the beach. We then put what you have learned together on 2 or more dives.

        What’s Next?

        Once you are a SSI Stress and Rescue Diver the next step in diving is to become a dive professional by training as a SSI Divemaster, and then even an SSI Instructor! Taking this route is a great option to start a whole new career anywhere in the world!

        Another option if you do not want a career in diving is to complete SSI Specialities. And work towards becoming a SSI Master Diver. This is a fantastic way to enhance every aspect of your Scuba Diving training. And learn about the areas of diving you are most interested in.

        Dive Medical Check

        We must let you know that certain medical conditions may prevent you from scuba diving such as asthma and heart conditions. If you are currently taking any medications, or are unsure about your fitness to dive, please have a look at the Diving Medical Questionnaire. If you answer YES to any to any questions listed then you must print out the RSTC Medical form and take it to your physician prior to coming to Thailand.
