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 teaching) and shallow water training sessions (off the beach or in our training pool). You finish with 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.
With your “PADI Card” you can join dive trips with other trained divers whenever your travels take you to where the diving is good. The course includes your diving manual, diver’s log book and PADI Open Water Diver certification, which is valid for life.
To be sure that your health is OK for diving you can check the PADI divers Medical Form here.
