Advise on AOWD certification
« on: 29 Oct 10, 19:36 »

  • I will be going for a LOB trip @ Similan in feb next year. However I am only a OWD and I really dun want to say goodbye to my frens(all AOWD) at 18m underwater. Therefore I need to do my AOWD. Initially, the plan is for me to take it during the trip, however as the operator only does SSI AOWD certification, so I need to clock an extra 6 dives in order to get my AOWD. For now, i really dun noe wat to do, should i clock 6 more dives in Hantu before the trip or should I go take a PADI AOWD  on my own. But, it is a close season in malaysia so where am I going to get my AOWD by next feb.... pls advise!

  • Well, you still can. Next long weekend will be the last week before the season close. I suggest you do your AOW next week if you want to. I am going LOB Kuantan with Big Bubble if you are interested.

  • TS... you could -

    1) Do your AOW as soon as possible in Malaysia
    2) Do your AOW at places like Langkawi...
    3) Do it at Phuket (arrive a few days earlier before your LOB set sail)

  • Oh you are working on the weekend as well? LOB is on the Deepavali long weekend next week 4 to 7 Nov. Yes you can do your AOW there.

    If you can't make it, I'll go with diver-hloc suggestion, arrive one or two day earlier in Phuket and do your advanced there. If you want to save time, do the PADI e-Learning module before you go, and then practical in Phuket.
