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 your resort and, if required, registration, certification, insurance, equipment (including dive computer), 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.
