What will I do?
Theory: You will start with an online video, followed by a short chat in the classroom. Here your instructor will tell you a little bit about scuba diving and we review some important safety rules. We look at the 4 simple skills you will learn in the pool and show you the scuba equipment.
On-site Swimming Pool: We will help you put on your scuba gear and then you’ll take your first breaths underwater! You will practice four easy but essential diving skills. After that, you’ll have time to swim around and get used to the equipment.
Dive in the Sea: We will take you for two real dives in the sea!
Where will I dive?
Khao Nayak, our local house reef
This is a shallow reef. However, you’ll still see colorful fish and coral. You will do two dives, with a maximum depth of 9m. Your instructor will be right by your side the whole time. This means you can relax and enjoy the experience
You can do more DSD dives. If you dive again with Sea Dragon within 2 weeks you won’t have to re-do the pool training. The maximum depth will be 12m.
Or why not take the next step and sign up for the PADI Open Water Diver Course. Get certified to dive to 18m anywhere in the world!
