Full description
Start your experience with an afternoon orientation at 5:00 PM. The following day begins at 9:00 AM with a classroom session, to learn the basics of scuba diving. At 12:00 PM you'll move to the swimming pool, where your experienced instructor will teach you the skills you need for diving. Learn to clear your mask, retrieve your regulator, and what you should do in the unlikely event of an emergency.   The next day begins at 9:30 AM with another session in the classroom. Learn how diving affects the human body, some basic navigation, and other safety skills. In the afternoon, head out on the boat to complete your first 2 open water dives. Dive to a maximum depth of 12 meters and look out for stingrays, pufferfish, moray eels, and an amazing array of vibrant reef fish.   Your final day starts early at 6:00 AM, with 2 dives at more advanced sites on Ko Tao. See bigger creatures that inhabit the island's waters, like barracuda, queen fish, and even whale sharks if you're very lucky. Afterwards, you'll be able to call yourself an open water diver and be certified up to 18 meters anywhere in the world. Celebrate back at the dive center with a complimentary beer and a t-shirt.
