Open Water Diver Course
What better way to learn how to dive than in the crystal clear, warm waters of Koh Tao?
No previous dive experience is required and upon completion of the course students will be certified to dive to a depth of 18m (60ft) with a dive buddy of equal or higher certification. The certification is valid for the rest of your life, meaning that you can dive with any dive shop, anywhere in the world!
The 3-day OW course guides students through a 3-phase process including Dive theory, shallow water skill work and Open Water experience dives.
