Experience the adventures in diving

Dive propulsion vehicles are just one of the fun dives you can do on your Advanced course.

padi advanced open water OK after completing the PADI Open Water course it is time to move onto the advanced program to extend both your skills and the depth limits that you can dive to.

Right now you can breathe, fin weightlessly, see clearly and explore a whole new underwater world that was previously denied to you.

To make the most of the underwater world you need to actually experience some of the different activities that interest you whether it be, Ship wreck diving, photography, night diving etc the Padi Adventure or Advanced course will help you find your interests. For example you might want to share the fun and excitement of one of your dives with your friends and family, you can do this by taking photos or video of yourself while diving.


 Pattaya has 4 great Shipwrecks to dive.

To make things more exciting you might want to learn how to take a video of a shipwreck and show how nature has taken a steel man-made object and turned it into a colourful coral garden.      

On the PADI Advanced course you get to do 5 dives over two days.  Two of the dives are mandatory, one being a deep dive to a maximum of 30 metres the other learning how to use a compass and natural navigation so you can navigate underwater. Then it’s your choice, you have three adventure dives that you can choose from. Look at the list of the dives below that we can do in Pattaya.

Knowledge Development

PADI Advanced Open Water Good news here. There is NO classroom session on the PADI Advanced Open Water course. The knowledge development section of the PADI Adventure Diver program just requires you to read the relevant chapters (the Adventure Dives you have chosen) of the PADI Adventures in Diving Manual (which you will receive from Real Divers when you sign up for the course) and complete the knowledge reviews at the end of the chapters.

Your PADI Instructor will then run through the knowledge reviews with you and go over anything you have got wrong or not understood, show you some new equipment. It is then time for the diving.

Ocean Diving

PADI Advanced Open Water The adventure dives you choose will take place at the Pattaya and Samae San dive sites.

The Pattaya and Samae San dive sites are particularly good for the PADI Advanced Open water training dives due to the fact that they offer ideal training conditions such as a number of wreck dives and deep dive sites enabling you to get the maximum out of the experience.

Try new equipment such as full face masks

On each dive there will be some skills to do followed by practice and normal dive activities tour of the coral reefs/wrecks.

It is then back onto the boat where your instructor will debrief you and you will log your Adventure dive.

HTMS Khram shipwreck is one of the popular Advanced dives.

Generally we will do the deep adventure dive as the first dive on the second day of the course.

After three adventure dives have been completed you are a PADI Adventure diver, and following the successful completion of the final two dives, a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver qualified to dive with a buddy up to a depth of 30 meters/ 98 feet.
