Orientation Day- 5pm- 7pm:
We start the OW Diver Course every day at 5pm when we get you to meet with your Instructor & the other guys on the course talk about what we’ll do for the next couple of days. Then we’re going to stick a video on & make you sit through it for just over an hour answering as many questions as you can in your Open Water manuals.
8.30am-11.30am: Theory Modules 1,2+3- Sitting over breakfast & coffee your Instructor will talk about what you learnt so far on the video, why you need to know it, & when you will do it. We have a few quizzes to do at the end of each module.
1pm- 5.30pm: We’ll go into the swimming pool & do what is called shallow water confined. We’ll start in a depth you can stand up in & then work to a maximum depth of no more than 3 meters by the end of the afternoon.
This day can also be reversed and be the pool first and then classroom after lunch.
8am-11.00am: Theory Module 4+5. Now you are ready to sit the Open Water Final Exam.
12.30pm-5.30pm: We’re off on the boat to do 2 dives at 2 different divesites to reach a maximum depth of no more than 12 meters. We’ll do a number of skills that we did the day before in shallow water, in slightly deeper water & generally go out & explore the reef, look at fish & try & get to grips with your buoyancy control.
7am-12pm: Out on the boat this time to one of Koh Tao’s best dive sites to dive to as deep as 18 meters at a 30 meter divesite (conditions permitting) which means we’ll have to stay focused on being in mid water. We’ll see big schools of barracuda, trevally, groupers, batfish & many many more.
Get 75% in the multiple choice exam & then you’ll then be certified as an Open Water Diver which will entitle you to dive at all the wonderful places you could ever imagine down to a maximum depth of 18 meters!
