Our diving courses in Ao Nang

Sawasdee Divers Krabi is a 5* PADI IDC Dive Resort and the only PADI CDC (Career Development Center) in Ao Nang, Krabi, Thailand. We offer the whole range of PADI diving courses in Ao Nang, from the Scuba Diver course for beginners to professional training, as well the PADI specialties and Nitrox (enriched air) diving courses. At our 5* dive resort you are in good hands for any diving course in Ao Nang, Krabi.

It is in a fantastic tropical environment that Sawasdee Divers Krabi invites you to discover diving, get certified or continue your diving education. You can also become a professional with us. Our team welcomes you in a comfortable, air-conditioned classroom and a special dive training swimming pool on site. An outstanding place for a PADI diving course in Ao Nang.
In order to maintain our quality standards, we fix the maximum number of students per instructor to 4 for all courses, and to 2 for the open water dives of the PADI Discover Scuba Diving program.
All of our courses include PADI certification, equipment rental, PADI manuals and the boat rides (including lunch and drinks) for your open water training dives at Phi Phi Islands.

If you’re going to be on a tight diving timetable while you’re away – or just can’t wait to get in the water – our PADI eLearning course is just the ticket. It’s a really flexible way to complete part of your scuba certification before you even fly to attend your diving course in Ao Nang. The big bonus is that you’ll tick off the academic side of things at home, so you won’t have to spend precious diving time in the classroom once you’re here. It frees you up to go straight into the water to learn the practical side of things.

The other great thing about the PADI eLearning course is that you can complete it in the comfort of your own home via the web. All you need is a PC and you’re away. You can get started straight away – you don’t need any prior scuba knowledge, as you’ll learn as you go. Best of all, you can go at your own pace and at a time to suit you, not us.

You’ll find the PADI eLearning course really structured and simple to follow. The content is broken down into easy-to-learn sections. It covers things like safe diving practices, dive equipment, the buddy system and breathing air at depth. And to make sure you understand everything, you can take Quick Quizzes at every stage before you take the compulsory Knowledge Review assessment. You can easily keep track of sections you’ve yet to do and which ones you’ve completed.
