The PADI Open Water Course consists of three segments:
PADI courses are designed to help you learn in the way that’s best for you. Courses combine visual, reading, writing and practical learning techniques to ensure you really understand each section.

Learn how to assemble and take care of your dive equipment, and practice and complete your underwater-skills training in one of our swimming pool.
You’ll have plenty of time to get comfortable with your equipment, apply common dive procedures, simulate potential problematic situations and scenarios and increase your confidence about scuba diving in shallow water before progressing on to make your dives in the ocean.
During the days out on the boat, you’ll complete 2 open water dives to a maximum depth of 12m, and 2 to 18m under the direct supervision of your PADI Instructor. Set up your equipment, practice pre-dive safety checks and successfully perform some of the skills you practiced in the pool.
You must complete a basic waterskills assessment in which you are required to float for 10 minutes, and swim 200m in deep water. Complete your learning by applying the principles you learned in the pool to your open water dives and enjoy some of the fantastic marine life that Ko Lanta has to offer.
