You must be 15 years old to complete the PADI Scuba Diver Course or 10 years old for the PADI Junior Scuba Diver certification.
Padi Scuba Diver course on Koh Lanta covers only the first three of the five sections of theory knowledge development. Moreover, it requires only the first two of the four open water training dives. There are also less skills to practice in the pool so this course will definitely take less time and still give you a diving certification. If you are limited on time and money, this is definitely the course for you! However, if money and time are not an issue for you during your holiday in Lanta, do not think twice. Go straight to the full PADI Open Water Diver Course!
costs only 9000thb and qualifies you to dive to maximum 12 meters/40 feet under the direct supervision of a PADI Divemaster, PADI Assistant Instructor or PADI Instructor. You will also be able to obtain air fills and participate in other diving activities as long as they have the required supervision. Included in the price are all scuba equipment, lunch, snacks and drinks on the boat. In addition, we will pick you up and drop you off to your hotel.
The course will start with a lesson in the pool where you will be taught the most important rules of scuba diving and practice exercises underwater. After the successful session in the pool, you will be required to read 3 chapters in the e-book that will be provided to you by email. Upon reading each chapter, there will be also 3 quizzes for you to complete. This will give you the passing grade for the theory part of the course.
Then, the following day, you will come on a boat with us to one of our amazing Thailand dive sites: Koh Haa, Koh Bida Nok, Koh Bida Nai or Koh Rok. The course consists of two dives, during which you will need to perform the exercises you learned in the pool one more time. Depending on the day and the group on the boat, a third dive might be optional for only 900thb extra.
