Here the Underwater Navigation Dive is ussually done and one more of the elective dives on a half-day trip. Stdents divers are encouraged to choose dives that will improve their diving. Peak Performance Buoyancy is a very popular choice.  Koh Weo is ideal for these dives as it is relatively shallow and easy diving.

The first dive is normally at Koh Doc Mai (Flower Island) and will be the Deep dive. This is down to a maximum depth of 30m (100ft). Koh Doc Mai is a wall dive which makes it ideal for deep diving.
Asthe second dive of the day follows the King Cruiser wreck. Most student divers choose to do a wreck dive as part of their Advanced Course. King Cruiser is a large wreck, which sank in 1997 and is a fantastic dive and a great introduction to wreck diving.
