BSAC Boat Handling and Diver Coxswain Assessment

Goodtime Adventures is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the BSAC (British Sub Aqua Club) Boat Handling Course & Diver Coxswain Assessment on Koh Tao, Thailand.

This two-day course is designed to give students with little or no boat handling knowledge or experience, instruction in small boat handling. It covers techniques relevant to diving and related safety knowledge. The first half of day one covers the theory fundamentals with practical sessions in the afternoon, and then all of day two is spent doing practical sessions.

As there is a maximum of three students per instructor, there’s lots of hands-on action with this course. You’ll feel the thrill of driving a boat at high speed, and face the challenge of conquering new skills and techniques. When you’re not driving yourself you’ll be practicing new skills as part of the boat crew.

The course is offered monthly. Dates for 2018 include: 29 – 31 January, 28 Feb – 2 March, 29 – 31 March, 27 – 29 April, 28 – 30 May, 25 – 27 June, 22 – 24 September, 23 – 25 October.
