    The PADI Open Water Diver course is the most popular scuba diving course in the world. During this course, you will learn various skills required for scuba diving by completing 5 open water dives up to a depth of 60 feet. You will also learn the theory behind the activity. The pristine, tropical blue waters of the Andaman Sea around Phuket ensure that Thailand is one of the best destinations in the world to do this course. You will also get to observe the diverse marine life of the blue seas. Upon successful completion of the course, you will be rewarded with the PADI Open Water Diver certificate.

    NOTE: You will have to swim for 200 meters on the first day. This is mandatory for the course.
