Koh Tao PADI Open Water Diving course: Learn to Dive in Thailand

If you have ever wanted to learn to dive in Thailand then this Koh Tao PADI open water diving course is for you.

The PADI Open Water course is the first diving course that people take in the PADI system when they are learning to dive. The course includes diving theory, confined water sessions where you will practice using the dive equipment and then 4 open water dives.

You can complete of the theory before you leave home if you decide to complete PADI’s eLearning, this means that you don’t have to spend what is essentially a day of your holiday in a classroom.
If you are already on your way to Koh Tao or already on the island and have decided that you would like to complete the Open Water course then there is no problem to complete the theory whilst you are here with one of our Instructors in our classrooms that have televisions for watching the introductory PADI videos.

Then after the theory you will practice the skills you will preform out in the ocean in our pool during the confined Open Water sessions.

Then over the following two days of the course you will complete four open water dives, two each day. Then at the end of the course you will have completed dives down to 18m and be certified as an Open Water diver.

  • equipment rental

What to expect

If you decide to take PADI's eLearning then you can complete that before you leave home. The eLearning covers all of the videos and theory for the Koh Tao PADI Open Water diving course and you can work through this at your own pace and save your progress as you work through it. PADI does recommend allowing between 12 and 15 hours to complete the eLearning.

Then when you arrive at Koh Tao you will start on the first day at 11am and complete a quick review multiple choice quiz so that your instructor knows that you have understood and remember the theory that you completed with the eLearning.

If you take the standard Open Water course and complete the theory here then you will start off on the first day at 4pm watching the introductory PADI videos and completing the knowledge reviews, usually we do the first 3 on the first day and this lasts around 3 hours.
Then the following morning you will complete the rest of the theory and the final exam.

Then after lunch you will carry on with the confined Open Water sessions in the swimming pool, if you already completed the PADI eLearning then on your first day you will do this in the afternoon after completing the quick review quiz in the morning. If there is space in a group that started with the theory on Koh Tao then you will join up with that group for the confined Open Water sessions and the rest of the course.
Then the following day you will have the morning off unless there was anything that you didn't manage to complete in the pool session. Then in the afternoon you will go out on the dive boat to complete the first two Open Water dives down to a maximum of 12m.
Then on the final day of the course (day 3 or 4 depending on if you completed PADI eLearning) we meet up at 6am for our morning dive boat and we'll go out for the final two dives of the course which will be down to a maximum of 18m. Then we will return to the dive shop and complete your log books and then your Instructor can complete your certification all before lunchtime and you will be a certified Open Water diver.

We bid you farewell and hope you have enjoyed learning to dive in Thailand
