PADI deep diver specialty in Koh Lanta?

Participating in the deep diving specialty training called Deep Diver, in Koh Lanta, means enjoying the warm and clear waters where life abounds on all sides.
In addition, you will want to explore the slightly deeper seabed, after a few dives already.

To know that there is something exciting and mysterious that draws us to the depths. Especially since in Koh Lanta, the marine life is still as varied and abundant.

Wrecks and marine life in depth

The wrecks often lie thirty meters deep or even more. Therefore, additional knowledge and techniques are required.
Obviously, you want to dive deeper to observe creatures only encountered at greater depths.
Note that, in Koh Lanta, several dive sites have wrecks between 20 and 35 meters deep and are very interesting to visit.

Either way, deep diving is arguable one of the most fascinating aspects of diving. Nevertheless, it calls on notions of safety, techniques and knowledge, which will allow you to fully enjoy your dives.

With PADI Deep Diver Specialty training on Koh Lanta, you’ll be prepared for it.

Depth of dives

Note that the depth of the dives, during the PADI deep diving specialty training in Koh Lanta, vary between 18 and 40 meters maximum. In this respect, all dives are thus carried out without decompression and the deepest dives are always done as the first dive of the day.

If you’ve earned the PADI Adventure Diver rating or higher, and you’re at least 15 years old, you can enroll in the Deep Diver course.

This will increase your theoretical knowledge and your diving techniques and allow you to access many other sites.

Your training starts by reviewing reasons for deep diving and how important it is to know your personal limits. During four deep dives with your instructor, you’ll go over:

  • Specialized deep diving equipment.
