PADI Open Water Diver Course

 

Let's Dive! You can be a Diver too!

The PADI Open Water Diver Course teaches you all the skills you need to dive safely and independently. This fun-filled course includes classroom theory, pool dives and 5 Open Water dives. Your PADI certification is valid worldwide, giving you a ticket to adventure. We have a maximum class size of 4 students, or you can choose to book a private course for just 1 or 2 people, giving you closer attention from your instructor. If you want 1:1 instruction, or if you're a couple looking for a bit of privacy, a private course is for you! We hope to see you here soon!

Start right now! Sign up for eLearning at PADI.com

We can run the course in 3 or 4 days, including 2 trips by day trip boat. One day diving will be at Racha Yai Island, and the second day diving will be at Racha Noi Island or at the Phi Phi Islands. PADI has recently added more content to the Open Water Diver course and we have found from experience that doing the whole course, including theory, in 3 days can be quite tiring. A 3 day course is possible if you have already completed all the theory by e-learning, or if you sign up for a private 1 or 2 student course. Any course you take with us will result in the PADI Open Water Diver certification, but the course details may differ in the location of the dives or duration of course.

Please note that we do not offer beginners dive courses in the Similan Islands National Park.

Start Now! You can start the PADI Open Water course any time by completing theory online using PADI eLearning - learn at your own pace, at home or anywhere you take your laptop or iPad. You can sign up for eLearning at the PADI Website, or contact Sunrise Divers for more information.

PADI Open Water Diver Course

 

How do I get my PADI? Is diving easy?

Learning to dive is not difficult. You may be a little nervous at the start, but the step by step structure of the course will take you through basics, then into a shallow pool before letting you loose on the reefs. Most people find out very quickly that diving is one of the most fun activities you can imagine! Here's how the Open Water Diver course looks...

Knowledge Development (Theory)

The theory covered in the course develops basic principles and diving procedures. You learn how pressure affects your body, how to choose the best gear and how to plan dives. We try to make the theory fun! You have your PADI manual to read, plus we watch some DVD's in our aircon classroom and then you take some simple quizzes and a final exam. Hey, we don't want to make it too easy!

Start NOW with eLearning!

You can get started on your Open Water Diver course any time - just sign up for eLearning at PADI.com - this can save you holiday time - if you have completed all the theory in advance, you'll be ready to get straight into the water, no messing around in classrooms on holiday, plus with eLearning you can do the theory in your own time. The charge for eLearning is about 175 US$ - this is paid to PADI, not to Sunrise Divers. Here in Phuket we'll complete the course in 3 days, with no classroom work except a quick review quiz.

Confined Water Dives (Pool Time)

You'll be in the pool on the first day of your course. The pool sessions cover a wide range of basic dive skills such as clearing water from your mask, setting up your gear, buoyancy control and proper entry techniques. You also practice some emergency skills, like sharing air (just in case). Oh and there is a swimming test too. By the time we're done in the pool, you're ready to hit the ocean with a splash!

Open Water Dives

After your confined water fun, you will make four open water dives (note : the course only requires 4 dives, we throw in a 5th dive for free!) over the course of 2 days with your PADI Instructor. When we say "open water", we mean the beautiful blue ocean! You start shallow and gradually go deeper. The maximum allowed depth in the course is 18 meters. Now you can experience real underwater adventure! We make dives on boat trips to islands near Phuket. See the price list above for options.

Open Water Referral Course

We also offer a referral course, which means you can complete all the pool and classroom work at home, then come to see Sunrise Divers and make 4 open water dives to gain your PADI Open Water certification. The course takes just 2 days so you can maximise your holiday time. For more details see Open Water Referral Course.

I'm not a great swimmer. Can I dive?

YES! You don't have to be an Olympic swimmer to learn scuba diving. Most of the time you are wearing scuba gear such as fins and a BCD (like a jacket which you can fill with air), so there's not much need for normal swimming. There is however a swimming test to make sure you are happy in the water. You need to be able to swim 200 meters or 300 meters with mask, snorkel and fins. There is also a 10 minute float test. In general you should be comfortable in the water and you should be fit and healthy with no medical issues.
