Divemaster courses can vary immensly , so it is a good idea to ask how many dives you get, and does it include a room or food etc. Scubadawgs can offer unlimited dives for interns.I recommend you choose a busy diveschool if doing Divemaster so you get lots of experience during your course.
Remember to ask about for discounts if you’re planning on doing multiple dives. Scubadawgs offer 5dives for 5000b, and 3dive 1day packages to include a wreck dive for 3,000b.they also offer friends and family packages that can be shared .
Where two prices are given the cheaper relates to a trip to a dive location near Koh Chang. The more expensive option will head south to the dive sites around Koh Rang. Be sure to find out where you will be diving before booking.
