Discover Scuba Diving

open water course in the similan islands

No previous experience is necessary, your professional dive instructor will take good care of you. You’ll probably find that diving is easier than you think. During your two dives you will be guided over the coral reef where you will see an abundance of fish life, schools of reef fish, moray eels, lion fish, parrot fish, snapper, fusilier, blue spotted sting rays, the list goes on.

You will be amazed at how much you see, the fish will come close to you, seemingly as curious about you as you are about them.

Your dive will last between 30 and 60 minutes (depending on how quickly you use the air in your tank).

This beginner dive program is sometimes called the “Discover Scuba Diving” or DSD program. It’s also called an intro dive, try dive or resort dive. It is not a course with certification at the end, it’s just for fun. It is a very safe program with constant in water supervision by an experienced dive instructor.

If you enjoy Discover Scuba Diving you can credit the dive towards the PADI Scuba Diver or  PADI Open Water Diver certification course.
