Transform your life! …

Get off to the best possible start in your diving career by joining us at Crystal Dive with our team of highly motivated PADI Course Directors & Master Instructors on a “Diving Lifestyle” Instructor Internship program @ Koh Tao’s “Award Winning Dive Centre”.

Your adventure starts – or continues – here. Becoming a PADI Instructor opens you the doors to opportunities everywhere in the world!

Not a diver yet? Here we start! …

This is where it starts … you’re about to start your diving career taking the 4 day PADI Open Water Diver Course. Once you have completed this course you’re entering the PADI Advanced Course.

At this stage you might want to build up your dives, confidence and just get a few dives in before you join the EFR & Rescue Diver and finally Divemaster Courses over the next 4 – 6 weeks.

NOTE: As you are required to be a certified diver for at least 6 months to enter the Instructor Course (IDC), you’ll have plenty of time gaining experience diving, traveling or even working already as a qualified Divemaster!

Course Price: 170.000 THB

Already Open Water Diver? Let’s go Advanced!

You know already what it’s like to breathe underwater and to deal with your equipment and stay with your buddy … now it’s time to broaden your horizon and find out what dive activities you’re interested in. Our 2 day PADI Advanced Course is your start to your career in diving.

You might even decide to take a few fun dives or join us for one of our many PADI Speciality Courses before going on to start your EFR & Rescue Diver and finally Divemaster Courses.

Course Price: 162.500 THB

Already Advanced? Rescue ready!

As an Advanced Open Water Diver you can go straight into our EFR & Rescue Diver Courses.

Depending on how many dives you have under your belt and how comfortable you feel with your general diving skills, you can always opt for some extra dives or start your education with us with one of our many PADI Speciality Courses before getting “Rescue ready”. Once done with your Rescue training, you’ll be ready to take the Divemaster challenge!

Course Price: 153.000 THB

Rescue Diver done!

If you are already certified as a Rescue Diver you can go straight into our Divemaster Training. If you don’t have the required 40 dives for your official course start, build those up for free whilst gaining experience and knowledge alongside our experienced Divemasters & Instructors.

Your Divemaster program will start off with an orientation with our DMT-Coordinators Tina Major & Carsten Neuhaus and you’re on the road to success …

Now it’s time to aim for your IDC-Date! Take your time but stay focused and dive a lot!
