PADI Scuba Diver Course

Course Price: 7,000 THB

The PADI Scuba Diver course is a subset of the Open Water Diver course. This course can be completed in as little as 2 days, perfect for those with a limited time frame and will still give you a fulfilling PADI diving experience.

  • Koh Tao Diving - PADI Scuba Diver Course

PADI Scuba Divers are trained to dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Divemaster, or PADI Instructor, to a maximum depth of 12 metres.

PADI Scuba Divers have more theoretical background and better developed water skills than PADI Discover Scuba Diving participants; however, they are not qualified for independent diving.

  • Confined Water Dives to learn basic scuba skills - just the first three of five dives of the Open Water Diver course.

  • Open Water Dives to use your skills and explore - just two of four dives of the Open Water Diver course conducted off one of our dive boats exploring the amazing coral reefs and marine life around Koh Tao.

Participants must also complete a water skills assessment consisting of floating or treading water for 10 minutes without a swimming aid.
