You will start with the basic principles of scuba diving and classes in the pool. Having completed the fundamentals you will proceed to practicing your skills in open water in proximity from Racha Yai island. The waters of this diving location are well suited for training with the depths from 3 to 20 meters (65 feet), good visibility and absence of undercurrents.
After passing the tests you will receive PADI Open Water Diver Certificate.
If you are not sure whether you need to take a three-day course, you can opt in for a short one-day Discover Scuba Diving guided dives.
Certified divers (FUN) have an opportunity to continue their training and get advance levels of certification: Advanced, Rescue, EFR, Divemaster courses or Specialty courses.
If you are a certified (OWD) diver already but you had a break in your diving experience, we recommend that you take a one-day Scuba Review Course to refresh. There are some great dive sites near Racha Yai that offer perfect conditions for a check dive. Sandy seabed, shallow still waters will help to refresh your skills and get acquainted with equipment.
