PADI SCUBA Diver Course

Thinking of getting certified, but don’t have the time to put into a regular diver course?



Now there’s a quick and easy program designed especially for you! This is your chance to snap on some fins, strap on a mask and experience an adventure in a short amount of time


The PADI Scuba Diver program is a pre-entry level certification that is perfect for people on vacation or those who only plan to dive a couple times a year. As a subprogram of the PADI Open Water Diver Course, the PADI Scuba Diver rating allows you to get certified quickly and easily by minimizing time constraints. With the PADI Scuba Diver certification you can dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Divemaster or higher professional to a maximum of 12m on your next vacation or dive trip.

This program is a wonderful opportunity to explore the underwater world with the comfort and safety of having an experienced guide with you at all times. The knowledge and skills you learn in this program are just the beginning of an exciting array of courses and programs that await.

With a PADI Scuba Diver certification card, you will be able to hire scuba equipment and other services including diving under supervision. After experiencing the program, you’ll want to continue your dive education and the PADI Open Water Diver is a perfect next step to explore more dive opportunities!

Credit earned in this program can be used toward the PADI Open Water Diver. The Open Water Diver course uses the same materials as the Scuba Diver course, so already you are on your way to continuing further dive exploration.

Our dive group sizes are small with maximum of 4 people in the group. Private courses can be arranged on request.

Schedule below may be adjusted to individual requests. To help reduce any time spent in the classroom we can arrange for materials to be sent in advance, this requires a Baht 2,000 deposit, and would reduce the course time to one day. For this option we will need your full name, email address, and date of birth, the deposit will be deducted from the final charge of the course.
