A 3-4 day course including theory, pool/shallow water skills and open water dives.  It is the first level course which educates divers to dive with a buddy, unsupervised, to a maximum of 18 metres.

In line with our mission statement, our course includes 6 dives and at least 200 minutes in the open water rather than the minimum standard 4 and (in theory at least) less than 100 minutes.  

It is also our policy that each instructor has a maximum of 2 students (the standard is 8) unless there is a specific request from the students, e.g. a family group.

This commitment means that those students requiring extra patience and attention do get it.

The course is normally completed in 3 days, though if a student requires an extra day, there is no extra charge.


14,500 Baht

Transport from any Koh Chang resort*, if required, registration, insurance, basic equipment, refreshments and lunch during the course are all provided . Not included is the entrance fee to the National Marine park – 400baht which is paid at the park on any day we visit.
