PADI Scuba Diving

This is a 2 day course where you learn basic dive theory and then get to experience 2 training dives in the open water. After completing this course you will have a certification to dive to 12 meters under the supervision of a divemaster or instructor.

Your first day will start between 9-10 am when we will pick you up at your hotel and take you to our dive shop at the Amari Palm Reef Hotel. You will start with watching the first part of the PADI open water DVD and then going over dive theory with your instructor.

After the theory portion of the day you will break for lunch and then off to one of our on-site pools for the real fun. You will do 3 confined water dives with your instructor where you will learn the how to use scuba equipment and learn and practice skills to make you competent and safe in the open water.

Your first open water day will start with us picking you up at your hotel approximately 7:10am. We will take you to the boat pier where you will meet up with your instructor and set up your equipment on the boat. The boat ride to Koh Tao will take approximately 1:15 minutes and upon arrival there you will do your first dive in one of the shallow bays of the island. In-between dives you will enjoy some lunch and rest up for your second dive. After your second dive the boat will return to Koh Samui and usually returns about 3:00 pm.
