What can you expect from this beginner’s PADI diving program?
Your day will start with us picking you up at your hotel approximately 7:00 am. We will take you to the pier where you can enjoy some light breakfast and coffee and meet your friendly instructor for the day.
The Discovery speedboat will leave the pier at 8:00 am and take approximately 90 minutes to reach one of the shallow bays of Koh Tao. Once at Koh Tao your instructor will go over the basics of the scuba equipment you will be using, and he or she will go over some basic skills to make sure you are comfortable and then it is off to explore the beautiful underwater sites of Koh Tao.
After the first dive you will enjoy lunch on either the boat or the beach and take about an hour rest and then it will be off to another dive site around Koh Tao for your second dive. By this time, you will already see how easy it is to scuba dive and will enjoy just having fun on your second dive.
Upon completion of the second dive the boat will return to Koh Samui and you will get a debriefing of your dive from your instructor and be able to check out some of the photos from the day.
We will also register your program with PADI for you. Upon completion of the program, your dives will count as a credit towards your first dive when you take a future PADI open water course. Of course, after you see how much fun diving is, we hope you will jump right into getting a full certification.
