Itinerary

Your day will start with us picking you up at your hotel approximately 7:00 am. We will take you to the pier where you can enjoy some light breakfast and coffee and meet your instructor for the day.

The boat will leave the pier at 8:00 am and it is a 1 hour 30 minute trip out to one of the shallow bays of Koh Tao where your instructor will go over the basics of the scuba equipment you will be using and the basic information you will need to know to be safe and have fun underwater.

Upon arrival at Koh Tao, you will start off in very shallow water where the instructor will go over some basic skills with you and make sure you are comfortable and then it is off to explore the beautiful underwater sites of Koh Tao.

After the first dive you will enjoy lunch on either the boat or the beach and take about an hour rest and then it will be off to another site around koh tao for your second dive. By this time you will already see how easy it is to scuba dive and will enjoy just having fun on your second dive.

Upon completion of the second dive the boat will return to Koh Samui and you will get a debriefing of your dive from your instructor, and be able to check out some of the photos from the day.

We will also register your program with PADI for you. Upon completion of the program, your dives will count as credit towards your first dive when you take a future PADI Open water course. Of course, after you see how much fun diving is, we hope you will jump right into getting a full certification.

Overview
Learn to dive with a hassle-free, pre-planned PADI course that you can take during your Koh Samui vacation. This one-day class isn’t enough for certification but it can be credited as your first open water dive. An instructor takes the group to the shallow bays of Koh Tao, where you’ll review the scuba equipment basics and underwater safety. The guide will accompany you in the water for your first dive. After lunch, the boat heads to another site for a second dive.

  • Course can be credited as your first open water dive toward PADI certification
  • Rest on the boat or beach between your two Koh Tao dives

Amazing discovery dives!

This was second time diving in my life without being PADI certified. The reason I didn't want to get certified is I was so scared to remove regulator or clear mask under the water, and felt safer 10 meters down (closer to surface) instead of...More

fun-filled and safety assured

Firsttimer with scuba diving I'd like to say that the experience was phenomenal. Our instructor "Stuart" took good care of us and made sure that we were comfortable of diving and continuously reminded us that "safety" comes first, and that took away my fear.
