Discovery dive

I cannot heap enough praise on Adang Diving or Aris my instructor. I received one on one tuition from Aris, who is one of the nicest people I have ever met, and he was so patient and calm.

    The SSI Scuba Diver Course is halfway between Try Scuba Diving and the Full Open Water Course. It will give you a license to dive around the world to a maximum depth of 12 meters under the supervision of a professional instructor. It is essentially more than half of your Open Water Course, with some theory, confined skills and 2 Open Water dives to 12 meters.


    The course starts with Dive Theory for the SSI SCUBA Diver course you will watch and read the first 3 chapters of the Open Water Course. This takes around 3 hours to complete. After you finish reading there is a knowledge review and quiz to complete for each chapter.

    Dive Skills

    Once the dive theory is complete you will next start the diving skills in confined water off one of the beautiful beaches around Ko Lipe. There are about 15 dive skills to complete for the SCUBA Diver Course. These include a variety of skills including mask, buoyancy and emergency procedures.

    For the SCUBA Diver Course you need to be able to float in the sea for 10 minutes.

    The Fun Stuff

    Finally you can start diving. You will complete 2 dives to 12 meters on one of the many beautiful dive sites around Ko Lipe. On these dives you will practice the skills you learnt during your confined dives.
