Dive Courses on a Liveaboard

Khao Lak dive courseYou can do your PADI or SSI dive course on a liveaboard in the Similan Islands. Please ask us for details.

Most Khao Lak dive liveaboards are geared towards certified divers and therefore SCUBA certification is not offered on the boat. Most divers joining these liveaboards have some experience. Liveaboard operators may allow you to complete your final qualifying dives from their liveaboard if you have done your theory and pool training with them prior to the trip.

Advanced Open Water courses and specialty courses are usually available. Pre booking is necessary to ensure that a qualified instructor and necessary teaching materials are on the boat. Popular specialty courses are Enriched Air Nitrox and Digital Photography courses. These type of courses can be easily integrated into the scheduled dives on the trip without any disruption.
