Learn to SCUBA Dive

Similan Islands SSI SCUBA Diving Courses with eLearning Available 

If you are new to the sport and wish to learn to SCUBA Dive by gaining your Open Water Certification or wish to continue your diving education by taking some extra courses, you can do both without losing any of your precious time in Thailand in the classroom!  Contact us about our available range of SSI Scuba Diving Courses, where you can complete all the academic parts of your course on-line from the comfort of your home before you arrive.  This will leave all the fun bits for when you are cruising with us on-board MV Oktavia and give you extra time to enjoy the magic of the Similan Islands.

Oktavia Dive Center and our vessel MV Oktavia are an affiliated SSI Dive Center and bring the best scuba courses in Khao Lak.

By clicking on the links below you can find out more information on the most popular of our course liveaboard packages.

All prices shown include:

  • 2 Day/2 Night Liveaboard on-board MV Oktavia
  • Maximum of seven dives
  • National Park fees
  • Free equipment on selected courses

For any guests who wish to lean to Scuba Dive or extend their diving education with a course on MV Oktavia please check the Student Record Medical Statement PDF [Click here]. If you answer YES to any of the questions you will need to gain a doctor’s certificate stating ‘Fit for Diving’ or you may not be able to partake in the course.

Courses can be included with our longer trip options and SSI Adventure or Specialty courses can be combined to gain your Advanced Adventurer or Advanced Open Water Diver certification.  Click on the ‘Advanced Open Water Diver’ icon to find out about individual Specialty courses and how to become an Advanced Open Water Diver.

We are still able to offer PADI courses if you wish and can also arrange courses while completing day trips from Khao Lak, rather than on our Liveaboard cruise – just get in touch for some great offers.
