PADI Open Water Diver Course Koh Lanta, Thailand

The surface of the world consists of 70% of water, yet few people experience what it is like underwater. Now it is your chance to see the breathtaking beauty that lies beneath the waves. The PADI Open Water Course on Koh Lanta gives you your basic licence to dive and is valid for life. The course is the world’s most popular scuba course – and Thailand is one of the world’s most popular dive destinations. The Open Water Course has introduced millions of people to the adventurous diving lifestyle and the underwater world. And Koh Lanta offers some of the best diving in Thailand, with regular manta ray and whale shark encounters.

The Open Water Diver Course Koh Lanta allows you to dive to 18m and can be completed in 3 or 4 days by one of our experienced instructors. The training is separated into three sections; Knowledge Development, Confined Water and four Open Water Dives. During the course, you will learn how to dive safely, how to protect the underwater environment and what to do if something unexpected happens.

Knowledge development

Knowledge Development is classroom-based and designed to teach you the dive theory. Knowledge development is where you will learn the principles, concepts, and terms necessary to become a PADI Open water diver in a relaxed and comfortable environment of our AC classrooms.

If you are short on time or want to have the dive theory completed before you come out on holiday so you can spend more time on the beach, then you can consider completing the theory portion of the course using PADI E-learning.

Confined water

Confined Water is where you head to the pool to complete a number of basic skills. These skills are explained and demonstrated by the instructor before you have to repeat the skill. The skills are designed to familiarize yourself with the equipment, learn basic buoyancy skills and be safe underwater.

Open water dives

The most fun part of the Open water course Koh Lanta! Open Water Diving is diving in the ocean and putting all the skills and training you have learnt in the classroom and pool into practice. The first two dives are to 12m and then the last two dives are to 18m. Once you have passed the course requirements you will receive a card that allows you to dive around the world for the rest of your life! Sign up for the Open Water Course on Koh Lanta – you will not regret it!
