  • Trip introduction

    If you've tried diving before, you know there's nothing more exciting than being underwater, and able to breathe freely while you explore coral and admire the colours. This Open Water certification course teaches you the skills (and gives you the required papers!) to take it up a notch.

    This Open Water Diver certification course teaches you the skills and techniques required to go scuba diving to a maximum depth of 18 metres or 60 feet. You'll train in 5 theory modules, confined water skills, and finally, the highlight of your certification, 4 open water dives. You'll learn the essentials, from breathing underwater to managing your equipment, and then you'll have a chance to practise it all in 4 dives in the open sea, under the guidance of an instructor. With this certification, you'll be able to go deeper and see more than ever before.

    NOTE: You should know how to swim if you want to do this course. While you don't have to be a great swimmer, you will be required to swim 200 metres (at your own pace) in open water, and float for 10 minutes.

    Destination

    The divecenter is situated on Beach no. 3, Havelock Islands, a heaven for divers in the Andaman belt. The Andaman Sea offers one of the highest counts of fish and coral species on the planet. You'll be swimming alongside a mind-boggling array of fish and a profusion of healthy, colourful coral.

    You'll have plenty of time to get comfortable with your equipment and feel secure breathing underwater, and you won't be rushed to complete the course if you're not ready. It's a peaceful 4-day adventure in the tropical waters of the the Andaman islands. And after successfully completing this course, you'll receive a certification card from PADI, one of the largest diver training agencies in the world.
