Once you've become a DPV Diver you may wish to take part in the Advanced Open Water course to show you other forms of diving. If a certain form of diving, such as Underwater Navigation or Night diving, is of interest then maybe focus in on one of our other Specialty Courses, but if you've been seriously bitten by the bug then maybe you would like to join our Master Scuba Diver Program, the pinnacle of recreational diving.
The cost of the DPV specialty is 6,500 Baht and can be held on one day or spread over two days if preferred.
