Description

PADI OPEN WATER DIVER COURSE

The PADI Open Water Diver course is the most recognized entry-level diving course in the world certifying you to dive to a depth of 18 meters. Our 4 day course outline is conducted under the supervision of our experienced PADI instructors in small groups, with excellent dive center facilities, equipment and last but not least, a fantastic dive boat to make your experience one never to forget.

The PADI Open Water Diver course is for absolute beginners and is conducted over three to four days.

PADI Open Water Diver courses start any day.

Includes

  • Full PADI Open Water Diver training
  • PADI Open Water Diver Manual (either online manual or paperback version)
  • Full diving Equipment
  • PADI OWSI Instructor, ratio 4:1
  • PADI Open Water Diver Certificate (Gold)
  • Insurance
  • Lunches, refreshments, tea, coffee and drinking water served aboard the dive boat

The course consists of 3 parts:

  1. Classroom theory and video sessions
  2. Confined water training
  3. Open water training dives

Course Schedule

Day 1
1730-2100: Classroom theory
Day 2
0900-1200: Complete Classroom theory
1400 -1800: Confined Water training
Day 3
0700-1300: Open Water Dives 1 + 2
Day 4
0700-1300: Open Water Dives 3 + 4
Please note that although the general start time is quite flexible we recommend this time because:

1. It will reduce the workload and spread the theory over two periods
2. The first part of theory is conducted early evening in the classroom so you are not sitting in the classroom when you could be enjoying the sunshine outside.
3. It means you can start as early as the day you arrive to Phi Phi Island even if you are arriving with the afternoon ferry.

Theory classes are conducted in our air-conditioned classrooms

Confined water training is conducted at the beach

Open water dives are conducted at the Bida islands and Phi Phi Ley Island

Pick up service is not included. Guests need to make their own way to our dive center for the trip meeting point.

More Details

(Part 1): Theory and video sessions

The theory and video sessions take place in our custom-built air conditioned classrooms. There are 5 modules of theory and subsequently 5 videos for each module. Each video can take between 45 -60 minutes to watch. Many of our students vote to watch the first of the videos in the evening of the first day from 17:30h to 21:00h and in this way they can free up the workload for the following day. Each module is proceeded by a discussion with our PADI Instructor and the study sessions are checked with the use of pop quizzes, or multiple choice quizzes to help monitor the students progress and understanding of the material.
The following day we shall start around 09:00h and complete the theory sessions where we left off the previous evening.

(Part 2): Confined Water Training

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. This will start on day 2 where 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.

(Part 3): Open Water Dives

The final part of the course are 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.

Pre-requisites

Must be over the age of 15 years

Must be healthy to dive

Must complete all sections of the course
