Cressi Christmas tree

New Cressi dive gear for your rental gear

Because we at Andaman Dive Adventure Lanta value our divers safety and diving enjoyment, we change our dive gear every 6th season. Now we have bought from Cressi all new BCDs, which we are using for our rental dive gear. The “old bcds” will be used for the pool sessions and sold 2nd hand to divers and other dive centers. We take our divers safety seriously and also prefer to stay up to date with new equipment improvements.

Join us now for PADI dive courses or fun dives and try our new BCDS ! Try out your new BCD to buy for your PADI Pro course.

Whale shark at Koh Ha

Whale shark at Koh Ha

Whale shark at Koh Ha. Guitar shark at Hin Bida !
Never before did we have this many guitar shark sightings. Koh Ha 1, Back of Koh Ha 3, Koh Ha Laguna and now also at Hin Bida. And the lucky divers yesterday saw a whale shark at Koh Ha as well !
Some other divers saw a large blacktip shark. There are also mating cuttlefish and octopus about.
Come diving now to see these special animals !

The wind has settled down. The ocean is flat again. Ideal conditions for diving. And as we are just before Chinese New Year, we do not have that many divers right now ! Take advantage of these top diving conditions. Go diving with a whale shark or other shark.

Enjoy your life as a PADI dive instructor !

PADI Course Director Lisa Bier with PADI IDC candidate Linn

This was our first PADI IDC with the new online presentations. We loved the new set up and how it makes the classroom presentations more effective, shorter and reserve more time for real practice. Our next PADI IDC (Instructor Development Course) will be in January 2020. Please email us on info@andamandiveadventure.com if you are interested or have a look at www.diveinstructorthailand.com

Website PADI Pro courses

Andaman Dive Adventure Lanta in corporation with Lisa Bier, PADI Course Director have renewed their past website PADI Pro www.diveinstructorcoursethailand.com
As a result this website gives more detailed information to students, who would like to proceed to PADI Divemaster and PADI Instructor levels. Lisa also planned the first 2 PADI Instructor Development Courses (IDCs) for November 2019 and January 2020. Lisa Bier has been working in diving since 2001 and teaching PADI IDCs since 2007.

Changes website PADI Pro courses

What Andaman Dive Adventure is trying to do with the renewed website for PADI Pros is to make it easier to understand the costs and structure of the courses. The new website for PADI Pros also allows for easier interaction with PADI Course Director Lisa Bier.
As all PADI IDCs are changing from October 2019, it is important to do your PADI IDC (Instructor Development Course) course at an up to date dive center. Ofcourse you can also still follow our regular dive courses, like our favorite PADI specialty courses. Those diving courses are Lisa’s favorites as well. Because of this, we have a special offer in season 2019/2020 for some PADI specialty courses and PADI Specialty Instructor courses.
As we are still further developing this website for PADI Pros, please bare a little with us. Therefore have a look. And if you have some good suggestions or things you are missing on it, please let us know. If you need more information, please email us on: info@andamandiveadventure.com

First PADI IDC Course with Andaman Dive Adventure Lanta on Koh Lanta

PADI IDC Course with ADA in November on Koh Lanta ! Sign up now !

PADI IDC course on Koh Lanta. Andaman Dive Adventure Lanta has planned her first PADI IDC course (Instructor Development Course) on Koh Lanta in November 2019. The exact dates for this PADI Professional training are: 18th of November until the 1st of December. The PADI Instructor Examination is planned for the 4rd of December on Koh Lanta. Andaman Dive Adventure Lanta finished building her much bigger new dive center at Longbeach street (on Koh Lanta, Krabi) in October 2017, with a much larger wet room and 2 classrooms with tvs and dvds. In 2018 Andaman Dive Adventure Lanta earned the 5 star IDC status from PADI. Until this time Lisa Bier was both the owner of Andaman Dive Adventure, but also taught PADI Instructor courses for other PADI 5 star IDC centers in Thailand.

Local PADI Course Director Lisa Bier (also one of the owners of Andaman Dive Adventure Lanta) will be in charge of this PADI IDC Course. Let Andaman Dive Adventure Lanta teach you how to teach your students how to dive. Use the new classrooms and excellent large wet room to your advantage. Teaching in our classrooms, pools and from our beautiful big boat will give you the best training for your PADI Instructor Examination. Our very experienced PADI Elite dive instructors and local PADI Divemasters, will explain to you all the aspects of diving. Not only theory, but also real life diving examples, practicing servicing dive equipment, charging tanks and changing filters of compressors. Furthermore also how to respond to changing weather conditions, how to make diving safe for you and your students and very important: how to reduce our footprint on this earth and clean up the ocean and help the corals.
