4, I am interested in doing the idc with you in november. I just have 1 question, if i do the idc msdt does it still take just 2 weeks. And what is the total cost with all fees included.

5, Hello, I am an Advanced Level Diver with over 140 logged dives and work for Pakistan’s first PADI dive school “Indus Scuba”. Now I want to upgrade to PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor. Kindly advice of the following. Total Duration from Advanced level to PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor What is the fastest option? Total cost for the upgrade to PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor With accommodation Without accommodation. Can I start the course somewhere by the 2nd week of August.

6, I would like to enquire on doing an IDC instructors course, I’m currently a Divemaster with about 90 dives. What are the dates and prices of your course over the December period, and what course do I need to do to be able to qualify open water divers. Also what do your courses include ie, Accomodation, food etc

7, I am a PADI Divemaster (with approx 600 dives) and have been working in Patong for the last 3 seasons and will be heading back there in September (currently in the UK for low season). I am looking to do my IDC in October. I would like to do the IDC prep course as I need the help!! and also need to update my EFR and I am not Nitrox trained. After looking at your website I think that I would need to do the Advanced package, do you have availability on the October course? I understand if I do the course in October I will only have to pay the PADI fee once to cover me until the end of the year, is that correct? Look forward to hearing from you

8, We have some bad news for you. We have decided to stay on Koh Tao as we have some friends here and they have offered us a diving package at a really good rate. Unfortunately the diving is not as good as Phuket but we can stretch our budget further over here which is what it comes down to in the end……money!.

Really sorry to mess you around, as you have been so helpful and we feel really bad. We hope we can still stay in touch and hopefully come and see you when we are next in Phuket.  We will pass your name on to others who wish to dive in Phuket as we thoroughly enjoyed our time there.

10, Hi, I’m looking for places to do my IDC/IE this summer/autumn. I’ve been diving for 10 years, I learned on Saba in the Dutch Antilles – a wonderful place, totally wasted on us because we only had time for our training dives. I was working in Belgium at the time, so after the holiday I joined a local BEFOS (Belgian branch of CMAS) club where I did my 2* qualification. When I moved back to the UK I was living in London and joined North London Scuba (based at Dive Force Marine). I did my RD and DM with them a few years ago. Since then I’ve moved to Cambridge and joined the University club (CUUEG) – I was interested in seeing how another agency taught. I’m planning on getting my instructor cert with BSAC – I’ve done my TIE and have a PIE booked for the summer. Can you give me details of the packages you have available and also options for accommodation.
