It is with regret that we announce the closure of our dive center until further notice, due to the corona virus outbreak.
We do this reluctantly, but our priority has always been to put the health and safety of our customers and staff first.
Thank you for your support in this matter. We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future. We wish you and your family and friends good health and patience / perseverance in these challenging times.
Congratulations to Brian and Mona on achieving the PADI Advanced diver level ! Andaman Dive Adventure Lanta’s regular Swedish divers improved their diving through Peak Performance Buoyancy. Now they can both dive until maximum 30 meter depth ! So what is next ? The PADI Deep speciality diver course or the PADI Rescue diver course ? Or maybe just some PADI Under water naturalist speciality course ?
After a busy whale shark season, we again are having several whale shark sightings at Koh Ha area. On a few occasions even 2 or 3. It seems that now is the time, if you are a diver, that you would like to dive Koh Ha with us. The beautiful part is that you can do your first time diving even here or bring your family snorkeling !
Why not join us for our next dive trip to Koh Ha ? We are diving there again tomorrow !
The EFR first aid course: Emergency First Response Course.
Are you stuck in Asia ? Or would you like to do a course, but you don’t want to dive ?
Or maybe you would like to do your PADI Rescue Diver Course or Divemaster course ?
Anyone (min. age is 8 years) can do their EFR first aid and CPR course. Let our EFR Instructors teach you how to help other people, while making sure you will be okay. Different topics of this non-diving course are:
1. Assess the scene and apply barriers
2. Airways open and look for breathing
3. CPR (heart massage)
5. first aid and secondary aid
This EFR first aid course is a 1 day program and does not involve any diving.
Andaman Dive Adventure Lanta would like to congratulate Yeliz & Tor with achieving the PADI dive instructor level, by passing their PADI dive instructor exams. Also a congratulation to PADI Course Director Lisa Bier on another 100% passing score for her PADI IDC course. The open water part of the PADI instructor exam was from the beach at Longbeach on Koh Lanta. It is the same place the students practiced their teaching diving during their PADI IDC course.
We wish Tor and Yeliz many great students and marvelous dives in the future.
Come diving with Andaman Dive Adventure to Koh Ha Laguna and meet our residential porcupine fish. We actually have a few and some of our divers have named some Eric and Steven. Especial great hits with the children for snorkeling and for the 8-10 years old PADI Bubblemaker diver students. But we also have very experienced divers coming back every year from Hong Kong, UK and the Netherlands to see their porcupine friends.
Meet our porcupine fish yourself on your trip to Koh Ha Islands.
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.
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.
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 !
