“EXTEND YOUR LIMITS”
SPECIALTY PACKAGE

AS A PADI ADVANCED OPEN WATER DIVER YOU CAN EXTEND YOUR SKILLS & DIVE DEEPER FOR LONGER AND BEYOND YOUR LIMITS

In the PADI Open Water Course you learned the basics to dive safely. The PADI Advanced Open Water Course got you to get a taste for activities underwater and dive deeper than before… But there is more to explore!

Take the plunge with this 3-Specialty Package and learn how to safely extend depth, bottom time and available areas to explore.

The PADI Enriched Air Nitrox Specialty let you stay longer than with normal air, as you breathe less Nitrogen…

The PADI Deep Specialty will take you beyond 30 metres to a maximum of 40 metres depth exploring areas you couldn’t before…

and the PADI Wreck Specialty will allow you to safely enter wrecks to explore the hidden treasures inside.

Ready to broaden your horizon and extend your limits? Let us take you deeper, longer & inside our deep wrecks on Koh Tao.

Get ready for the next step!

3-4 Days – this is how you get 3 PADI specialties:

DEPending on your experience you will take 6-8 dives spread over 3-4 days to get 3 Specialties at once

What the exact schedule looks like depends on which dives you have taken as part of your previous courses and we can always adjust the program to you, but in general, these are the elements:

NITROX (Enriched Air) Specialty

The PADI Enriched Air Specialty is focussing on the difference of normal air compared to air with higher oxygen content, advantages and safety procedures.

As such there is no diving skills involved, but mainly theory and predive-procedures that you learn about.

You will sit in for a Knowledge Development Session including Video, Knowledge Reviews and Exam followed by analysing the content of the Nitrox tanks, that you will use on most of your dives of the Wreck & Deep Specialties.

PADI DEEP DIVER Specialty

If you already passed the PADI Advanced Open Water Course or PADI Deep Adventure Dive, those dives will be credited towards this Specialty and you will have to participate in 3 more dives to gain this certification.

The theory for this specialty contains of a short video and Knowledge Reviews, which can be done around your dives – practical tasks are in focus instead.

On the dives you will look at changes to pressure sensitive objects, color as well as shorter no decompression limits.

Navigation at depth, reacting to Narcosis as well as emergency procedures in case you accidentally exceed your limits will as well be part of your training dives.

And the last dive will be in your control – you plan and execute your Deep Dive like a Pro…

PADI WRECK DIVER Specialty

You may have taken the PADI Wreck Adventure Dive as part of the PADI Advanced Open Water Course or just by itself. In that case, this dive can be credited, as it is just a general orientation to Wreck diving itself and you will only need to complete 3 instead of 4 dives.

As with the Deep Specialty, the theory consists of Video and Knowledge Reviews and can be done around your dives. An added exercise is to get some land practice to get used to the gear you need (reels, torches, gloves) for your dives. 

Compared to the Wreck Adventure Dive as an orientation, Dives 2 – 4 of this specialty are packed with tasks, where you will create a map, practice using reels and torches, tying knots, using lines to signal to your buddy … and finally plan and execute a wreck penetration dive!
