Q: What are the high and low season dates?
- LOW SEASON :: May 1st – Oct 31st

Q: If your hotel is full do I still get 10 nights free when booking an IDC package?
A: Yes. We will secure you a room of equal or lesser value (season depending) in one of our partner hotels close to our Chalong dive shop.
Q: If I don’t wish to stay with Aussie or one of our partner hotels, can I get a discount on my IDC package?
A: No. If you wish to stay somewhere specific, outside of Chalong, or more expensive, it will be on the candidates cost. The accommodation bonus is non-redeemable for cash and can not be refunded or put towards discounted diving activities if you choose not to use it.
Q: What are your rooms like?
A: All rooms have AC, WIFI, TV, comfy bed, linen and pillows. Each room has it’s own private balcony. Each room has it’s own private bathroom. Each room is serviced daily. We have a safe downstairs for valuables. Secure entrance door. Couples are welcome, no extra charge for 2 people in the room if they are a couple!
Q: Is the WIFI reliable and fast?
A: Our WIFI is extremely fast and very reliable, it is of course free with the rooms so you will always have access to the internet for research and study purposes over the course of your IDC.
Q: Where is the best place to stay when doing my IDC?
A: The best place to stay for your IDC is close to where you will be doing the bulk of your work! In this case that is Chalong, Pier Road, where our Chalong office is located. This is where you will do all your classroom work and where you will store equipment. This is also where our driver leaves from for beach diving and pool training activities.
If you are planning on staying elsewhere you most likely need to organize your own transport to and from the classroom each day and possibly to other facilities depending on the availability of our driver.
