On the 4rd and 5th of December, PADI conducted a PADI Instructor Examination on Koh Lanta. All candidates passed !!!
Of course we are very happy for our long term diver Linn, who passed as well ! Congratulations to all IDC and IE candidates !
Enjoy your life as a PADI dive instructor !
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 firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested or have a look at www.diveinstructorthailand.com
Last week divers had a whale shark on Hin Daeng and Hin Muang. They also saw 3 whale sharks between the Bida Islands and Koh Lanta.
Normally these incredible animals swim past Koh Lanta from the end of November.
This year they are early !
Today, the 29th of October we have loaded our beautiful boat ADA Numchock 9 again.
Tomorrow, the 30th, will be our first trip of this season to Koh Ha area.
We are looking forward to dive every day from our spacious big boat again !
If you have not booked, yet, for this season, please reserve spaces soon.
We at Andaman Dive Adventure Lanta look forward to take you out diving on our next trip to Koh Ha.
p>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.
Normally manta’s start visiting Hin Daeng and Hin Muang from about end of November, but they are early back this year. So far we have seen 3 at the same time. This season we have the opportunity to go to Hin Daeng and Hin Muang every other day (weather and currents permitting ofcourse) by fast catamaran boat for 3 dives. The dive sites will usually be Hin Daeng, Hin Muang and a dive site at Koh Ha on the way back. Start time for this trip is 7 AM and usually the boat is back around 3.30 PM. Please pass by Andaman Dive Adventure Lanta’s dive center or contact us on: 0901596661 or by email on email@example.com
Andaman Dive Adventure Lanta is very proud to receive the Certificate of Excellence in 2018 again. Our previous guests gave us excellent reviews on TripAdvisor. This is the fourth year in a row. Also a big thank you to our experienced diving and boat staff. They are the main reason for our high TripAdvisor ranking.
Andaman Dive Adventure Lanta has undertaken a partnership with Dive Assure. This results in a free insurance for Padi open water diver students for diving during their Padi open water diver course. Also it gives other divers the chance to take a 2 week, one month or even a year insurance for diving through Andaman Dive Adventure. Please ask us for quotes. More safety while diving !
Because of the many media reports of the floodings in Thailand, we are receiving many emails with questions about the weather. Our current weather conditions are: calm see, bright sunshine and very hot. It is important to understand that the West coast of Thailand has summer season now. The East coast has their rainy season now.
Koh Lanta has their summer season from October 15th until May 15th. Please come and enjoy the sunshine and great diving with us !
If you look at the picture: Koh Lanta is on the left side of the picture under Phuket, next to Krabi in the ocean
Yesterday divers saw a whale shark at Hin Daeng on one of their dives !
We were hoping for the migration of whalesharks to start soon again and I guess it just started again. Come over now and take a chance on seeing these magnificent creatures under water.
