Open Water Course


The ultimate way to do a PADI Open Water course and learn to scuba dive with Similan Diving Safaris, is on our Live aboards Dolphin Queen or Similan Explorer. Your instructor stays with you for the whole trip, helping to add to your confidence and have a good understanding with your instructor. Together on the 4 days trip you will do 13 dives (11 day dives and 2 dusk/ night dives) or on the 5 days trip you'll do 17 dives(14 day dives and 3 dusk/ night dives).


We start your scuba course with 1 day of theory (book & DVD) and 1/2 day swimming pool skills done here in Khao Lak on the day of departure, these skills teach you the standard rules and principles of diving. On the first diving day you will do 3 dives to 12m, the next day you will do 1 more dive to 18m to earn the standard requirements to be certified. Congratulations you are an Open Water diver.

After this trip as a new Open Water Diver you should feel very confident, and ready to move into your next diving adventure, anywhere in the world or may be if you really enjoyed the first two days with the instructor you could continue your education with the Advance Open Water course; qualification that will allow you to master your buoyancy and dive down to 30m., opening your posibilities for greater diving! .
