Become a PADI Dive Instructor at your own pace!

Upcoming PADI Dive Instructor Course:

As currently all divemasters and instructors are busy with work, we are planning the first online integrated flexible PADI IDC Course.

What is different with other “normal” PADI IDC courses?

The difference is that we have a schedule with days in between. On these days students can choose to work, practice more, take more time to study or simply rest. It is a less stressful way to do your Dive instructor course. And allows students to reach their level at their own pace. While still working in diving at the same time.

To be able to plan around our students, we ask all interested students to come by and sign up before the 1st of March. We are aiming to be finished before the end of March.

How to teach students safely and up to PADI standards

How does this work in smaller steps?

  • Step 1: you sign up and fill out your paperwork. Together we check what you need gear-, education- and tools wise to make it to the PADI Dive Instructor Level
  • Step 2: you start with your PADI IDC online and let us know if you need any assistance. We will have 2 sessions in the dive centre that you can choose to follow for diving theory and PADI programs. These are especially interesting for crossing over students and students who have difficulties with this.
  • Step 3: you tell us when you have finished steps 1 & 2. After this we plan your pool practice. During this we have a look how your skills are from the open water course and the rescue diver course (exercise number 7).
  • Step 4: any refreshers for EFR or people who need to do their EFR Instructors Course? We will plan in a day for this. On this day you can also make adjustments or test your gear.
  • Step 5: the Opening session of the PADI IDC! Here is all starts!
  • Step 6: plan your classroom sessions and pool sessions with your PADI Course Director and Staff Instructor
  • Step 7: The End session of the PADI IDC! Let’s prepare for your PADI IE: the exam, which you should be more then ready for.
  • Step 8: PADI Instructors Exam
  • Step 9: Start teaching as a PADI Dive Instructor
  • Step 10: develop your diving career further by doing more specialities!

Divers setting up their dive gear

Busy diving high season on Koh Lanta

This season people are running away from Europe to Thailand, because of high energy prices, war and a general need for sunshine and a holiday after Convid19.

We are happy to see many familiar faces of previous divers here and are feeling really fortunate with the current dive conditions, marine life and yes: the first whale sharks have been spotted already!

Because of the amount of enquiries we are making ourselves ready for a busy season, so please reserve your spots on our boat, as we hate to disappoint you. From now on you can also reach us on WhatsApp: +66909523674.

See you soon?

Koh Ha Islands

Come and dive with us the beautiful Andaman Sea or learn to dive at the beautiful dive sites around Koh Ha. Enjoy amazing corals and fishlife and the quietness of Koh Ha marine park.

Corona closure diving

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.

Kind regards,
Team ADA

New PADI Advanced Divers

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 ?

Brian and Mona with their PADI Instructor Astrid Eisheuer
As there are so many interesting fish around Koh Lanta’s dive sites, under water naturalist or fish id are good topics for your PADI Advanced course
Whale shark at Koh Ha

Whale sharks again at Koh Ha !

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 !

Two new PADI dive instructors at Andaman Dive Adventure Lanta

New PADI dive instructors

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.

Congratulations to all new PADI dive instructors
