There, you’ll gain access to the online knowledge development program for a year and lifetime access to the PADI Open Water Diver Manual online.
You’ll gain the essential skills, experience and knowledge to make your diving safe and fun, as well as a license to dive anywhere in the world, for the rest of your life. The 3 or 4 days PADI open water course Koh Tao is designed for the complete beginner to learn the fundamental skills of scuba diving in order to become a fully certified diver. Your course includes academic training, self-study sessions, confine water training sessions and 4 open water dives from our comfortable and friendly dive boats.
You’ll learn how to assemble and take care of your equipment, use the Recreational Dive Planner to plan your dives within accepted safety limits, avoid and deal with potentially difficult situations and complete skills both in the confine water and in open water. Dives 1 & 2 are to a maximum depth of 12 meters. Dives 3 & 4 are to a maximum depth of 18 metres. You will be under the direct supervision of a PADI Instructor at all times.
What languages do you teach and how many people are in each group?
Our PADI open water course in Koh Tao is run in English, German, Swedish, Danish, French & Thai. We run semi-supported courses in Norwegian, Finnish, Spanish & Dutch. Please let us know if you require course materials in another language and we will order them for you. On the dive boats, we supply drinking water and fruit.
We keep group sizes small to ensure you receive maximum benefit from your tuition (maximum 4 students per instructor). This also minimises negative impact on the reefs. Our emphasis is on safety, fun and personal service within a relaxed and stress-free environment.
Breathing underwater for the first time is something you’ll never forget, so don’t wait.
