PADI Open Water Diver Course
Now is the time to dive into the PADI Open Water Diver course, the most popular dive program in the world! This is your ticket to a lifetime of intense adventure with PADI, a dive company that sets the standards in the global diving community.


Throughout the course, you’ll learn fundamentals of scuba diving, including dive equipment and techniques. You will also earn a PADI Open Water Diver certification that is recognized worldwide. You earn this rating by completing five pool dives and knowledge development sessions and by making four open water (ocean or lake) dives.

Virtually anyone who is in good health, reasonably fit, and comfortable in the water can earn a PADI Open Water Diver certification. At some point in the course, your PADI Instructor will ask you to demonstrate your ability to swim 200 metres without swim aids or 300 metres with mask, fins and snorkel, along with a 10 min water tread. If you are between 10 yrs and 14 yrs or have a child between these ages, there is a PADI Junior Open Water Diver program available.

Cost: Baht 9,800
Course price includes PADI Manual, RDP and rental equipment use during the course.

Accommodation is reduced for 4 nights during the course.
