PADI Open Water Diver

The PADI Open Water Diver Programme

The definitive beginners dive course usually works comfortably in about 4 days.
It starts with some simple theory presentations (DVD’s plus personal classroom teaching) and shallow water training sessions (off the beach or in our training pool), and then 4 actual Open Water dives – the last 2 are usually conducted on a boat diving trip to one of the top dive sites in the Gulf of Thailand.
When you have successfully completed this internationally recognised diving programme, you should have a proper understanding of how to make safe SCUBA dives up to a depth of 18 metres.
And with your “PADI Card” you can join dive trips with other trained divers whenever your travels take you to where the diving is good, and needless to say it’s just the starting point to expand your scuba diving horizons with PADI Continuing Education!
The course includes your own Open Water Diver manual, diver’s log book and PADI Open Water Diver certification which is valid for life.
