The PADI Open Water eLearner package is for students that wish to complete all of the theory at home online through the PADI Open Water eLearning.
Once a student has completed the PADI eLearning the next step is to start the in-water training. This will involve the confined water training followed by 2 boat trips with 4 open water dives.
We take into consideration the time you spent eLearning and the cost of this portion of the course and we offer the completion of the course at a reduced price from our regular rates.
This schedule is based on guests arriving in the afternoon to Phi Phi Island
Remember, you will need to log into PADI’s website and purchase the PADI Open Water eLearner program directly with PADI as our rates are separate to PADI’s charges.

The Quick Review Quiz is used to assess the student’s understanding of the PADI Open Water eLearner training and will help to reinforce the students knowledge through direct instructor input. The Quick Review Quiz can be conducted anytime either the day before the confined water training (after registration), or in the morning prior to confined water training. However it must completed before any in-water activities.
Confined Water Training means learning to dive in water which is shallow enough to stand up. Our confined water training takes place on the beach in a natural environment. At this point the students will start to develop the skills required to learn to dive. Each skill is carefully explained by the diving instructor and then demonstrated by the instructor, so the student may feel confident that they can perform the skill themselves. Diving skills are developed starting with the easier skills and progress as the student’s confidence and ability progresses. Just like the theory and video sessions, there are 5 confined water training modules.
To complete the course the student must participate in the four open water dives. Open water dives 1 and 2 are conducted on the same day to a maximum depth of 12 meters. Our dive boat ‘Reef Ranger’ travels out to the Bida Islands or Phi Phi Ley island to some of the best dive sites the islands have to offer. Each dive is approximately an hour long and there is a light lunch and refreshments provided between the dives. Open water dives 3 and 4 conclude the course on the last day with a similar program outline as for open water dives 1 and 2.
Upon completion of the PADI Open Water Diver Course, the student is presented with a temporary PADI Open Water Diver card that enables the newly certified diver to participate in any fun dives while waiting for their main dive certificate card to arrive from PADI headquarters.
