Open Water Diver Course (3 Days)
Get your worldwide diving licence in just 3 days with 4 amazing coral reef dives.
We run a new open water diver course everyday – so you can start whenever it fits in with your holiday schedule.
Maximum 4 students to one of our professional scuba diving instructors. Minimum age 10 years old.
In the Andaman Sea, water temperatures are usually very warm, ranging from 79 to 84 degrees throughout the year – so we wear a thin 3mm shorty wetsuit on dives.
Yes we can organise a private scuba diving instructor for just you for the day.
For safety reasons, there are some minimum swimming requirements to pass the open water diver course. You will need to complete a 200 metre swim – this can be any stroke and isn’t timed, so you can take your time. You’ll also need to float for ten minutes – you can do this laying on your back or by treading water.
Finally, you’ll complete some basic snorkelling skills. The most important thing is your level of comfort in the water. The more comfortable you are the more enjoyable your dives will be, so if you’re not there yet, taking a couple of swimming lessons or classes may help improve your skills and confidence ahead of your course.
The Professional Association of Diving Instructors “Flying After Diving guidelines” say divers should not ascend to a high altitude within 12 hours of completing a single dive or 18 hours after doing multiple dives so as long as you are not flying before 9am the next day everything will be fine.
This really depends on how fast you breathe the air from the tank but normally it is around 30 / 40 minutes per dive.
On the discover scuba diving day trip you dive to a maximum depth of 12 meters and on the open water diver course the maximum depth you dive to is 18 meters.
The minimum age is 10 years old.
