PADI Continuing Education

What to expect from diving in Langkawi:

PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course

Prices season 2024-2025


With limited visibility it is a challenge to do the Advanced course in Langkawi. Before adding these new skills be sure that you:

-Have practiced and feel comfortable with all skills you learned in your Open Water course, and have done several fundives since.

-Have been diving in the last few months or have recently done a refresher dive.


Before each adventure dive you will need to read a chapter in the online manual and answer knowledge reviews. Your instructor will discuss any questions during the predive briefing.

Available PADI Adventure dives. (*compulsory for AOW certification, **should be compulsory)

  • Buoyancy dive**; with limited visibility you will need to be very close to the corals, and your buoyancy skills will be even more important.

  • Navigation dive*; learn little tricks for navigation the professionals use.

  • Deep dive*; For this dive it is recommended that you dive deeper than 22m, we can’t get to that depth at our reefs. To solve this, we dive away from the islands, on the sand or “in the blue”. We will only conduct this dive if the water conditions are safe to do so.

  • Fish ID dive; a fun challenge to start with learning about marinelife.

  • Limited Visibility Dive; learn more about safety and techniques of the type of diving around Langkawi. More info on the full specialty course, see below.

  • Digital Underwater Imaging; learn the basics of taking great photos or video during your dives. Bring your own camera or rent our camera.

PADI Limited Visibility Diver

Specialty Course

Prices season 2024-2025

Diving in clear water is great, seeing as far as 30-40m, looking at the big pelagic animals swimming by. But did you know that there are places with incredible marine life (like Langkawi!) that do not have that amazing visibility?

There are incredible creatures and beautiful reefs living in waters where you can see just a few meters in front of you. You might think that diving these places is too difficult; what if you bump into something, what if you lose your buddy, what if you get disorientated?

The goal of the PADI Limited Visibility Diver Specialty course is to show divers they can enjoy diving in limited visibility, while learning skills like the use of buddylines and navigating like a pro.


After a theory session and a thorough briefing you will do 2 dives at the divesites of Langkawi. During both these dives you will learn practical skills for diving and navigating in limited visibility. After completion you will receive a PADI certification.

Duration: 1 day (2 dives)

For who: any certified diver

Included:  Course materials, PADI certification fee, equipment rental, coffee/tea and snacks in the surface interval.

Price RM690,

Included: online learning materials, 1 adventure dive & 1 certifying dive, PADI certification.

Upgrade after adventure dive RM420



We dive with max 2 divers per PADI instructor and we only take 6 people on our boat; to make sure you have a spot, it is recommended to book in advance. A deposit is required.

Your health:


Medical questionair: Diving is a very safe and relaxing sport but can at times be physically demanding and you need to be in good health. Before each course you will have to fill in this medical form.

If you can answer all questions with NO(including the question about Covid19), then you can start your course right away. If you have to answer YES, then get the form signed by a physician to make sure it is safe for you to go diving.

Glasses: Do you wear glasses? You will not be able to keep them on during diving so it is recommended you wear contact lenses during the program.

Flying: For health-reasons, do not plan your dive on the day that you are flying. The current recommendation is to wait 18hours after diving.
