Schedule

Your course begins on day 1 around 8am when you will be collected from your hotel and transferred to the classroom.  There, you will be met by your Instructor who will teach you all about your equipment and scuba diving theory.  You’ll learn the important rules of scuba diving, master the basic scuba concepts and complete a series of knowledge reviews.

After a break for lunch, the course continues with your confined water experience.  You will be taught important and necessary scuba skills and will have the opportunity to practice and master these skills under your Instructor’s expert supervision.

On days 2 and 3 you will be collected from your hotel between 7.15-45am and transferred to Chalong pier. Your Instructor will be there to meet you and escort you to the dive boat.  After a cooked breakfast, you will arrive at your first dive site.  Once you have successfully demonstrated a number of skills underwater, the best part of the course begins– touring the underwater world!  Your experienced Instructor understands what it’s like to be a beginner diver so will be close by and there to assist you at all times.

A one-hour surface interval follows then you will be ready for your second dive of the day.  After the second dive, you can enjoy a sumptuous buffet lunch of International and Thai food.  The boat will moor up in a beautiful bay for lunch – the ideal location to photograph the stunning islands and for a spot of snorkeling.  Your third dive of the day will be between 3 and 4pm.

You will complete 4 mandatory open water dives performing different skills each time. Then on day 3 you will get to log 2 extra fun dives for free to add to your scuba experience and enjoyment!  You will arrive back between 5-6.30pm depending on the dive sites visited.
