Learn to scuba dive on the beautiful island of Koh Lanta, Thailand, We’ve taught hundreds of people how to scuba dive – let us show you Lanta’s amazing underwater world
Our scuba instructor says: To become a scuba diver, I’ll teach you the PADI Open Water Diver course, which certifies you a scuba diver and allows you to dive anywhere in the world.
Some dive schools have up to 8 students in a class – I only teach a maximum of 4 people to one class. That way you are assured of safety, quality time in the water and a relaxed pace to the course. Below I’ve written up how much the Open Water costs and the timetable for doing it over three days.

Timetable Of The PADI Open Water Course
After signing up for an Open Water Course students are given an Open Water manual. The book will provide you with the important info about scuba diving. It has five chapters and students are asked to read the first three chapters and complete the knowledge reviews ready for the next day.
Pick Up And Gearing Up
Day one begins with a pick up at 8:30am – enough time to have breakfast beforehand. Once you arrive at the dive shop, we show you the scuba gear and let you try on the different pieces of equipment so you have a comfortable fit.
Review Your New Scuba Knowledge And Learn How The Scuba Gear Works
After gearing you up with scuba equipment, we go to the swimming pool to teach. This creates a much more relaxed and stress free atmosphere. You watch a PADI DVD, and then we check your answers to the knowledge reviews. Next you will learn how to assemble the equipment and safely check everything is working. Then it’s the exciting part – it’s time to get wet.
Into The Swimming Pool: You Can Breathe Underwater!
The pool session is designed to give you a little experience and gain your confidence before diving in the sea. We teach you many safety aspects of diving and help you learn diving techniques like swimming, breathing and understanding buoyancy. That concludes the tuition on Day 1. It’s time to relax and look forward to scuba diving for real tomorrow on Day 2 of the Open Water course. The day usually finishes around 4pm.
Nervous? Don’t Worry – We’ll Take All The Time You Want To Learn
We understand that everyone learns differently so if any problems have arisen then we can relax and complete the pool session the next day making it a 4 day course.
Go Dive Boat
Experience The Underwater World Of The Ocean!
Day 2 and 3 of the PADI Open Water Course are then spent on the boat doing 4 dives, with 2 dives on each day. The boat departd at 8am returning around 3:30pm. These dives are a mix of training, where you practise the skills you learnt yesterday in the pool, and exploring the underwater world around you, where you get to experience the thrill of floating weightless as you go scuba diving.
Dive Dive Dive!
On Day 2, we can dive to a maximum of 12 metres on both dives. On Day 3, we can dive to a maximum of 18 metres. On these dives we will dive for a maximum time of one hour and also practice the skills we learned in the pool. You will dive around Koh Ha and the Bida Islands which are near Koh Phi Phi. Both are amazing dive sites with beautiful coral and lots of incredible creatures like octopus, boxfish, seahorses and much more.
Free Lunch – Diving Is Hungry Work
On the boat trip you will have all refreshments, breakfast, lunch between the two dives and fruit after the 2nd dive on the way home. We have a cook on the boat so everything is prepared fresh. The dive sites are up to 2 hours away which is perfect to finish your Knowledge Reviews and also complete the 50 quiz questions about the PADI Open Water course.
