Open Water Course
Normally a 3 to 4 day program depending on your skills in the water. The course can be done in sections. For example you could do the academics at your local PADI dive centre and once completed you would be issued a referral form for you to continue your diving course in our warm tropical waters. You could also do the PADI E-learning program online with PADI directly and then complete your water work with us.
Alternatively you could do the entire Open Water Diver course with us in a relaxed fashion according to your holiday schedule. This certification allows you to dive anywhere else in the world.
Open Water Diver Course (3 to 4 days) – Prices starting from 11 900 Baht.
Meeting Point at Phuket Scuba Club located at Shanti Lodge 1/2 Soi Bang Rae, Chaofa West Rd, Ao Chalong, Phuket.

The Open Water Course – for beginners – could be conducted over 3 days but we can only assess your skills in the water on the 1 st day to see whether you would be able to do the course in 3 days. Otherwise we recommend that you do it over 4 days. Our courses are conducted in small groups with between 1 to 4 students per instructor and the environment is very relaxed – so definitely no school classroom atmosphere. With the water temperatures between 29 to 31 degrees the conditions are ideal to learn scuba diving. Prior to starting the course you would need to complete a STF (Student Record File) supplying us with your personal details and medical history. If there is any medical discrepancy we would take you to our local MD for a check up. The only other prerequisite is that you must be able to swim at least 200 meters or snorkel (mask and fins) 300 meters at your own pace.
Course prices include theory classes, Confined Water sessions, 4 Open Water dives, equipment rental, certification fee, PADI course manual, log book and insurance.
