PADI Open Water Course on Koh Lanta: Schedule
We will provide you with e-learning that you will need to complete before the open water dives for the theory part. In general, you can do all the study at the comfort of your home. All is included in the price of the course. Likewise, if you’ve tried diving through a Discover Scuba Diving experience or resort course, the skills you learned may be credited towards a portion of the full PADI Open Water Diver course certification.
- Day 1 – Pool and Theory
First, the course will start with a half day pool session where you will learn and practice everything needed to be a scuba diver. Online theory (PADI e-learning) will be assigned to you on this day or previously, if you booked in advanced. We suggest to book in advanced so theory may be made before your holidays thus saving a lot of time and fun: who wanna study during vacation?
- Day 2 and 3 – Two Open Water Dives each day
Consequently, this session will be followed by four dives in the open water spread out in two days. By all means, you don’t need to do all the dives in two consecutive days – the schedule is flexible. During the open water dives, you will repeat the skills that you learned in the pool. Finally, you will be an officially certified PADI Open Water Diver after a successful completion of these skills and a passing of the final exam with 75% or more. The examination can be done online via the PADI website or it can be done in our dive shop.
Lunch, snacks and drinks onboard of our speedboat are included in the price. In addition, a hotel pick up and drop off are free of charge everyday of the course. We want you to have the best experience possible with Phoenix Divers Koh Lanta!

Furthermore, depending on the day and the group on the boat, an extra dive might be optional for only 900thb on top. This extra dive can be counted as a fun dive or it can be a dive that counts towards the PADI Advanced Open Water Certification. For example, you can do a deep adventure dive or a drift adventure dive in the famous Hin Daeng or Hin Muang dive sites!
