Get your PADI scuba certification. If you’ve always wanted to learn how to scuba dive, discover new adventures or simply see the wondrous world beneath the waves, this is where it starts.
The PADI Open Water Diver course is the world’s most popular scuba course, and has introduced millions of people to the adventurous diving lifestyle.
What You Learn
The PADI Open Water Diver 3-4 day course consists of three main phases:
- Knowledge Development (online, home study or in a classroom ) to understand basic principles of scuba diving
- Confined Water Dives to learn basic scuba skills
- Open Water Dives to review your skills and explore!
If you’ve tried diving through a Discover Scuba Diving experience or resort course, the skills you learned may be credited towards a portion of the full PADI Open Water Diver course certification.
To enroll in the PADI Open Diver course or Junior Open Water Diver course, you must;
- Be 10 years or older (PADI eLearning requires a minimum age of 13 years due to international internet laws)
The Fun Part
The fun part about this course is . . . well, just about all of it because learning to dive is incredible. You breathe underwater for the first time (something you’ll never forget) and learn what you need to know to become a certified diver. During the course, you’ll make at least five pool dives and four dives at local dive sites under the supervision of your PADI Instructor.
All learning materials are included
PADI’s Open Water Diver materials cover what you need to know about basic scuba diving skills, terminology and safety procedures. For each concept you’ll read a description and watch a video demonstration. Then you’ll jump in the pool (or pool-like environment) to practice these skills with your instructor. Later, as a certified diver, use the course materials as a reference guide for future diving adventures and to review what you learned.
PADI's Online Training program is designed so that you can learn the academics at your own pace when it is convenient for you. You can complete the academics online or in the classroom when you arrive here. The PADI Open Water Touch application is the perfect way to pre-study the academics on either a smartphone or tablet. Contact us for more details.
In the PADI Open Water Diver course, you learn to use basic scuba gear, including a mask, snorkel, fins, regulator, buoyancy control device and a tank. Here in the Gulf of Thailand the equipment you wear will be appropriate for the tropical water temperatures we experience year round.
The time required to complete the course may vary depending on class size, student aptitude, logistical considerations and student performance, although it is typically completed in 3 - 4 days.
For cancellations we allow for a full refund if we are notified at least 24 hours before the trip date.
