PADI & Additional Fees
A PADI Medical Statement for physical dive clearance needs to be signed by a physician. This may be obtained by your home physician or by a physician on the island. Cost on the island is approximately 200 Baht.
PADI Divemaster Application Fee in 2020 is $220.00 Australian Dollars. This payment is made via a credit card application directly to PADI to register in current status as a PADI Divemaster to be eligible for employment.
Accommodation: We can suggest several long-term bungalows/rooms located near the dive centre or on-site depending on your personal budget. If you budget for 10,000 – 14,000 THB per month you will not be disappointed although there are places available from as little as 7,000 THB. If you prefer something more up market, there are detached private bungalows or houses with multiple bedrooms, kitchens etc. These range from 18,000 – 30,000 THB per month, depending on location, size etc.
