Intro: Deep, Wreck & Enriched Air Diver Training in Koh Tao

Individual PADI specialty courses run for 8,000 baht each.

But when you take the Deep, Wreck and Enriched Air PADI courses together we can offer you the special package price of 18,000 baht. (A giant saving of 6,000 baht).

These three PADI Specialties greatly increase your diving skills and experiences, with exhilarating dives along the way:

During the PADI Deep Diver Specialty you’ll learn deep diving procedures and techniques, undertaking four deep dives which qualify you to explore right down to the recreational diving depth limit of 40 meters.

The PADI Wreck Diver course develops specialized knowledge and skills which allow you to see much more than the untrained diver. Exploring the shipwreck of the former Thai Naval vessel HTMS Sattakut, the course culminates in the opportunity for a penetration dive inside the shipwreck.

Finally PADI Enriched Air (Nitrox) Diver training teaches you to utilize enriched air gas blends containing up to 40% oxygen to extend your bottom times. We’ll apply these innovations during some of your deep and wreck training to gain more time at depth.

Schedule: Deep, Wreck & Nitrox Combo on Koh Tao

The three combined PADI specialties require us to complete eight training dives which we can run over three days. (Two days of three training dives & one day with two).

Or if you prefer a more relaxed approach we can spread the training over four days instead.

Let’s take a look at the highlights of each course:

PADI Enriched Air (Nitrox) Course

Our no-decompression limits (NDLs) & thus dive times are determined by our body’s nitrogen absorption and elimination rates. So by reducing the amount of nitrogen in our breathing gas and replacing it with oxygen, we can extend our bottom time and/or enhance the safety of our dives. Such gas blends are referred to as enriched air (EANX) or sometimes nitrox.

However, increased oxygen concentration introduces different complications. During the PADI Enriched Air (Nitrox) Specialty you’ll learn how to safely plan dives using nitrox, including analyzing gas blends, correctly marking cylinders and special equipment considerations.

For a full explanation of the Enriched Air Course see: PADI Enriched Air (Nitrox)

PADI Deep Diver Specialty

Whilst most recreational divers remain in the shallow water, exploring to depths beyond 30 meters provides a thrilling new experience.

During the PADI Deep Diver Specialty you’ll learn techniques and procedures allowing us to venture right down to the recreational diving depth limit of 40 meters.

Training dives give the opportunity for exhilarating adventures off Koh Tao, exploring rarely visited areas of our deeper dives sites such as the Chumphon and Southwest Pinnacles, Green Rock and Shark Island. Giant soft coral fans and bizarre brightly colored sponges, unusual critters and aquatic life await us in the depths, often accompanied by challenging diving conditions as we descend into the thermocline.

PADI Wreck Diver Training

Shipwrecks provide some of the world’s most popular diving attractions. Unique underwater architecture often rich in history and teeming with aquatic life, wreck diving offers a rare and rousing chance for exploration.

The PADI Wreck Diver Specialty educates you to orient yourself on a shipwreck, identify potential hazards and create a map which we’ll use in later dives. Training dives will also focus on using a reel combined with careful finning techniques to avoid silts outs and maneuver around a wreck.

Our training dives will be conducted around the wreck of the HTMS Sattakut; a former Thai military ship which lies upright in 30 meters of water just off Koh Tao. The final training dive of the course gives an opportunity to make a penetration dive inside the wreck; exploring the narrow corridors and holds, or making your want onto the bridge.
