What To Expect

The PADI touch course is a new product from PADI that make the dive theory very easy and leaves more free time for you on your vacation.  the PADI touch course is a downloadable app which works on all Apple and android devices.  After you book, we will send you a code and instructions and you can start working on your theory from your home in advance or even on the long, boring plane ride to Koh Samui.  This would eliminate most of the classroom portion of your course and allow you to complete the course in less than 3 full days.

On your first day of the course you will start in the morning and your dive instructor will do a review with you of your theory and then you will get acquainted with the equipment with the instructor and then off the the fun part of the course.

At this point you will do your confined water training with one of our instructors in one of our pools here onsite at the Amari hotel. You can complete all of your confined water training in one day or split it up into two short days if you prefer.

In your confined water dives you will learn all you need to know in how to use scuba equipment and be able to handle yourself under water as well as being prepared for any situation in the open water. We prefer to take a little more time with you in the pool so that you are 100% comfortable when you go diving in the open water. Not only will you learn a lot, you will a have a lot of fun swimming around under water.

The final two days of the course consist of your open water boat dives. This is the reason your doing the course for anyway, right? The open water portion of the course consists of 4 open water dives over two days where you will perform various dive skills both under water and at the surface to make sure that you are a competent and safe diver. We split the skills over 4 dives so that you only are doing a few skills each dive and get to spend the majority of your time diving with your instructor and exploring the underwater world.

Your first open water day will start with us picking you up at your hotel approximately 7:10am. We will take you to the boat pier where you will meet up with your instructor and set up your equipment on the boat. The boat ride to Koh Tao will take approximately 1:15 minutes and upon arrival there you will do your first dive in one of the shallow bays of Koh Tao. In-between dives you will enjoy some lunch and rest up for your second dive. After your second dive the boat will return to Koh Samui and usually returns about 3:00 pm.

Your second day of open water training will start again with a pickup at 7:10. Depending on the dive site that we go to for your 3rd and 4th dive the boat ride will be anywhere form 45-80 minutes. You will do your two completion or “graduation dives” with lunch in between again and will return to Koh Samui between 1:15 and 3:30.
