This course will take you from your first breaths underwater with shallow water skills to four exciting dives around Koh Tao. Much of the year, Koh Tao offers the chance to dive with whale sharks around off shore pinnacles engulfed in schools of jacks and batfish. With us, you will visit these dive sites during your Open Water training.

The PADI Open Water certification is valid world-wide and certifies you as a qualified SCUBA diver.
