This most popular dive program in the world allows you to dive with a buddy, independent of a professional.
Your license is internationally recognised, so you will be able to happily dive to a maximum depth of 18m or 20m. The adventure really begins already during the shallow water sessions where you will be immediately surrounded by tropical fish.
What do I need to start?
Virtually a good health, or a medical clearance from your doctor and be reasonable fit and a minimum age of 10 years old .
How long will it take?All the diving courses are ‘performance’ and not ‘time’ based, but you could complete your course in no more than 3 days as we keep the groups limited to 4 divers per dive instructor.
The practical sessions of the course covers training in shallow water and during 4 open water training dives. All made on different dive sites around Koh Tao, were will give you enough time to do the training and still enjoy some quality dive time to observe the aquatic world. Dive sites will be weather depending and therefore impossible to predict but we change as often as possible.
We normally conduct the open course in 3 full days and you can complete the training on the 3rd day around 17:00. We can do it slower if you prefer, as our approach is always flexible and we adjust ourselves to your needs. We don’t want to do it shorter, as 2 days is too short for this kind of training.
What will you do?
Throughout the course, you’ll learn the fundamentals of scuba diving, including dive equipment. You earn your ‘Open Water’ by completing confined and knowledge development sessions and by making four beautiful open water dives!
