Adventure Dives for Juniors on Koh Tao

The Peak Performance Buoyancy (PPB) Adventure dive is a great place to start, this fun diving course focuses on positioning, control and movement in the water.

You will have lots of fun with your instructor, learning to move backwards, hover in different positions, even upside down as you become more confident and capable in the underwater world.

Adventure Dives

Fish Identification is a great course to have fun discovering the marine life underwater and learning the names of the fish you see every day (they are not all called Nemo and Dory).

These are just a couple of examples of the PADI Adventure dives available to our youngest scuba divers on Koh Tao, many other courses are available including Underwater Digital Imaging so you can save those memories to look back on. open water on koh tao
