The beginner dive course PADI Open Water

The PADI Open Water Course is by far the most popular way to learn to dive, it is recognised internationally and more people learn to dive with PADI than all other organisations combined.

To complete the course whilst on holiday in Phuket takes just 3 short days, the first day consists of theory – learning the scuba terms and the reason for the rules of diving, followed by an afternoon in local swimming pool learning and practicing all the skills needed for diving.  There a few changes for the course for 2014, designed to bring it up to date.

This is followed by 2 fun-filled half-days on the boat completing the 4 Open Water  dives and re-demonstrating the skills learnt in the pool and exploring the marine life in the ocean of the west coast of Phuket. This is followed by a little more theory.

The final part is just the paperwork and then you are certified as a PADI Open Water Diver for life.
