Start your PADI certification today!
Would you like to become a certified scuba diver? The PADI Open Water Diver is the first diver level PADI offers and teaches you the essentials of scuba diving; including basic dive theory, underwater skills, dive planning and dive equipment handling and care. The course consists of a theory part, a pool session and four open water dives. For the theory part, you will get a manual and a DVD with all the relevant information included. After discussing the theory, you will be ready to jump into the pool. Here your instructor will lead you step by step into the essentials of diving. At the end of the pool training, you will be familiar with your equipment and master basic underwater skills with confidence. Now you are ready for two days on a boat of your choice. This is usually the most fun part of the course, the “hard work” is done, you proved yourself in the pool and the theory was completed. Now we are going to test your skills in the
open water. You will complete four open water dives during a weekend of your choice (weekdays possible too). On the first day we will do two dives down to 12 meters. On the second day we will go down to a maximum of 18 meters. Besides repeating some skills, we will have plenty of time to explore the dive sites, enjoy observing the wildlife and just DIVE. Between the dives, you’ll have some delicious Thai food and simply relax. After those two day trips you will be a certified PADI Open Water Diver. Congratulation!
