Boat Diver

The PADI Boat Diver Specialty course is a great way to get to learn the different terminology of boats i.e.: port, Starboard, bow and stern just to name a few. There is also the practical advantages from diving from a boat, shorter surface swims, more dive sites are accessible and if your doing a draft dive the boat will come to pick you up at the end of your scuba dive.


You will learn different ways to enter the water like the sitting back roll or the giant stride and how to exit the water safely. We will also get you familiar with the purpose and location of emergency equipment available on a typical dive boat.


This one day course starts at 7.00am with pick up from you hotel (Lamai), with a short drive to the pier to Bophut or Bangrak. The boat leaves at 8.00am to Koh Tao or Sail Rock and we return to Koh Samui 2.00pm (Sail Rock) 4.00pm (Koh Tao).
