Interested in doing a PADI Dive Course but are short on time? A scuba diving license is less than 2 days away!
The PADI Scuba Diver Course is halfway between Discover Scuba Diving and the Full Open Water Course. Gain a license to dive around the world to a maximum depth of 12 metres learning to dive under the supervision of a PADI Instructor. It is essentially more than half of your PADI Open Water Course, with theory, pool work and 2 Open Water dives to 12 metres.
Once you complete the PADI SCUBA Diver course you can upgrade at anytime in your life to the PADI Open Water Course.
First of all, course begins with knowledge development through instructor led theory sessions. Our classroom has stunning ocean views, but you can also self study in the comfort of your own room, we have portable DVD players. There are three modules of theory to work through with the accompanying manual and three short quizzes.
You receive your own digital copy of the PADI Manual by email, called a PADI EBOOK.
After the theory you will practice 15 new scuba skills in our pool. The infinity pool overlooks the Andaman Sea with pool sessions held between 8am and 11am. It is a great way to start your day!
A 10 minute float is required for certification
Finally, you will practice your new skills over 2 Open Water dives and explore our stunning reefs! Hop on our boat as we head to Phi Phi Leh and the Bida Islands, only 20 minutes away. To complete your training dives you will practice buoyancy and emergency skills.
The two dives are to a maximum depth of 12 metres. In between dives you can enjoy your lunch on a beautiful beach or bay on Phi Phi Ley.
If you feel you do not have enough time for this course or want to try diving first then look at Discover SCUBA diving.
Have a look at our dive packages including Dives, Accommodation & Ferry tickets.
Upgrading later to a Full Open Water Licence from Scuba Diver requires another half day of theory, some pool work and 2 more Open Water dives to 18 metres in any PADI Dive School!
