Dive Packages

After arriving in M’Pai Bay you’ll be greeted at the pier on arrival and then kitted up for the day. The dive boat generally leaves around 11am to head to our first dive destination, which is usual chosen in the morning to ensure you have the best conditions available.

Return to the traditional Cambodian village for lunch and then head to the second of the days dive spots, where you are likely to see Cambodia’s wide biodiversity – ribbontail bluespotted stingrays, trevally, batfish, angelfish, damselfish, barracuda, scorpionfish, gobies, blennies, wrasse, grouper, filefish, boxfish to name but a few.

We return to Koh Rong Samloem in time for you to get the ferry to Sihanoukville – although you’re welcome to make use of your open-return ticket and stay on the paradise island for longer.

The price is $85 including: all the dive equipment you need, a dive guide (divemaster or above) and two dives. Soft drink and après dive beers are also available for a small cost.

That’s what the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course is all about. You don’t have to be “advanced” to take it – it’s designed to advance your diving, so you can start right after earning your PADI Open Water Diver certification. The course helps build confidence and expand your scuba skills through different Adventure Dives. You try out different specialities while gaining experience under the supervision of your PADI Instructor. You log dives and develop capabilities as you find new ways to have fun scuba diving.

Get credit! Each Adventure Dive may credit toward the first dive of the corresponding PADI Speciality Diver Course. If you’ve already taken a speciality diver course, ask your instructor if you’ve earned credit for an Adventure Dive.

Who should take this course?
PADI (Junior) Open Water Divers who are at least 12 years old are ready to step up and enroll in an Advanced Open Water Diver course. Young divers may only participate in certain Adventures Dives – check with your PADI Instructor.
If you’re already an Adventure Diver, you only need to complete two more Adventure Dives to earn the Advanced Open Water Diver certification.

What will you learn?
You’ll plan your learning path with your instructor by choosing from a long list of Adventure Dives. There are two required dives – Deep and Underwater Navigation – and you choose the other three, for a total of five dives.

During the Deep Adventure Dive, you learn how to plan dives to deal with the physiological effects and challenges of deeper scuba diving. The Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive refines your compass navigation skills and helps you better navigate using kick-cycles, visual landmarks and time.

The other knowledge and skills you get vary with your interest and the adventures you have – photography, buoyancy control, fish identification, exploring wrecks and many more.

You may be able to get college credit for the Advanced Open Water Diver course.

Project AWARE’s philosophy is to mobilize a global force of scuba divers and water enthusiasts who care about protecting the world’s water resources and choose to make a difference – one dive at a time. By earning the Project AWARE Specialist certification, you’ll be aware of the most pressing problems facing vulnerable aquatic environments and know what everyday actions you can take to help protect them.
Anyone who has an interest in the aquatic world should take this course. There are no prerequisites, age restrictions or water sessions required for this non-diving speciality.

What will you learn?
Through classroom discussions, you learn:
• How Project AWARE unites scuba divers and water enthusiasts to make a difference.
• About environmental issues in the ocean commons and coastal zones.
• About fisheries challenges and sustainability problems.
• What’s happening to coral reefs and reef inhabitants.
• Your role in protecting aquatic environments.

Much of the world’s best scuba diving is accessible only by boat. Whether you’ve never made a boat dive or you’ve logged dozens, the PADI Boat Diver Speciality course will benefit you because boats in various parts of the world do things differently. Scuba diving from a boat is fun and relatively easy because you usually descend directly onto your dive site.

If you’re a PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver who is at least 10 years old, you can enrol in the Boat Diver course.

What will you learn?
The PADI Boat Diver course will expand your knowledge about boats from small inflatables to large liveaboards. You’ll gain experience scuba diving by completing two dives from a boat in your local area and learn:
• Boat terminology.
• Boat diving procedures and etiquette, including how to enter and exit, and where to stow your gear.
• Boating safety, including how to locate safety equipment.

The PADI Drift Diver Speciality course teaches you how to enjoy going with the flow as you scuba dive down rivers and use ocean currents to glide along. It feels like flying – except that you’re underwater using scuba equipment. Drift diving can be relaxing and exhilarating at the same time. If this sound like fun, then the Drift Diver course is for you.
If you’re a PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver who is at least 12 years old, you can enrol in the Drift Diver speciality course.

What will you learn?
Along with drift diving techniques and procedures, you’ll:
• Receive an introduction to drift diving equipment – floats, lines and reels

• Get an overview of aquatic currents – causes and effects.
• Practice with buoyancy control, navigation and communication during two drift dives.
• Learn techniques for staying close to a buddy or together as a group as you float with the current.
