Learn to Scuba Dive on the beautiful island of Koh Tao, Thailand and discover the underwater treasures the ocean has to offer.This three and a half day course will teach you everything you need to know to dive safely anywhere in the world to a depth of 18 meters. You will practice some simple classroom sessions, learn all required scuba skills in shallow water, and conduct four dives with the amazing marine life found in the tropical waters of the Gulf of Thailand, with a maximum student-to-instructor ratio of 4:1.

The Open Water Course is the first level of scuba diving certifications with the diving license being internationally recognized, allowing you to dive all around the world with no expiry date. The minimum age is 10 years old and there is no other limit apart from being reasonably fit and in good health.  The classes begin at 4pm each day.

We believe that you learn diving by diving, and so you shall conduct all your dive training in the sea which allows you to have up to six dives during your training, as opposed to the standard four. Each afternoon session will take place aboard our very own pirate ship, the Seacutter, which is the only boat of it's type on Koh Tao. While aboard, there is complimentary tea, coffee, water, biscuits and fruit.
