Open Water Diver/Junior Open Water Certified​

Minimum age: 12 years

If you are booking two or more people in your group, we will arrange a scuba diving instructor just for your group at no extra cost. 

If you are a solo traveller and would like a personal instructor for the course, there is a small charge of 4,000 THB. Otherwise, we will arrange for you to be in a group of other solo travellers. 

Group size never exceeds 4:1 so you can be sure the instructor will be able to give each person focused attention.

Scuba diving requires a minimum level of health and fitness. Anyone, regardless of age, with shortness of breath, blurred vision, or any form of chest pain may need to reconsider diving. Avoid disappointment, download and review the Diver Medical form to ensure you won’t need a physician’s approval to dive before enrolling in a scuba course.

We expect no issues but in the unlikely event of injury, it only makes sense to be prepared. Check your current travel insurance covers you for scuba diving activities. Be sure to contact them directly to make sure. If they do not then we recommend DAN Scuba Diving Insurance.

While we may not be able to accommodate every requirement please let us know in advance and we’ll make every effort to ensure there is food available for you. In addition, we can help you store your own food on the trip if necessary.

Absolutely! While some places use amateurs or fresh out of school dive guides, we use local experienced experts. Our concern for your safety is paramount and we take pride in our staff’s experience and professionalism.

The next stage is the PADI Rescue Diver course. In this course, you’ll learn to identify and fix minor issues quickly before they become bigger problems. You’ll also gain a lot of confidence and have serious fun along the way here in Phuket.

Depending on where you are going for the day will depend on your retrun time to your hotel. These times are as a guide as they can change due to weather conditions and currents.
