SCUBA Diving for Beginners

We offer beginners PADI courses for people who are visiting Koh Phangan and don’t have the time to get certified, or who want to check it out first. It’s possible to have a genuine experience of SCUBA diving in a safe and controlled style.
Discover Scuba Diving; Pim and Danielle 2002After a careful briefing on diving safety rules, techniques and equipment, you start with some simple skill practice just below the surface of the water. Once this is done you can then enjoy a relaxed fun dive or 2 to a maximum 12 metres depth, with your instructor to take care.

Although 4 is permitted by PADI, we usually specify a maximum of 2 divers per PADI professional.

Please note that part of the paperwork for beginners PADI courses is a Diving Medical Declaration; if you can answer the questions with a “no” it’s fine, but if there’s a “yes” please check with your doctor first.

Your beginners diving options are listed below:-
