From the first moment to the end of the course everything perfect. All information and total costs perfectly clear, with no surprises. Roger's management before arriving, very fast, and also advising us with the logistics of the trip, places to eat, etc. The course itself with Ferran and Bene, great, Ferran superprofessional, attentive to all the details, always waiting to correct or advise us, explaining why everything, both he and Bene and Roger are great!

Sign up for this two or three day SSI Open Water Diver course and discover a whole new world of coral reefs and tropical fish around the Phi Phi Islands. What are you waiting for?

SSI Open Water Diver Course

The SSI Open Water Diver Course is the ideal option for travellers looking to learn to scuba dive in the incredible turquoise waters of the Andaman Sea.

Day 1: Confined waters

On the first day of the course, we'll meet up at 10 am at the dive centre. Using the theory that you studied at home, we'll head to the beach and spend two hours practicing the basic techniques of SSI Open Water Diving.

After this first contact with scuba diving, we'll take a two hour break and you'll be free to go and have lunch (not included). We'll then meet back up at 2 pm, and we'll jump back into the sea to dive for two hours in confined waters, a dive site at which the environment is predictable and controlled. The first day of the course will end at 6 pm back at the original meeting point.

Day 2: Scuba diving

The second day of your SSI Open Water Diver Course will see us meeting at the dive centre at 7:20 am or 1:20 am, depending on your choice. There, we'll get kitted out in our equipment and head into the water to discover the wealth of underwater life around Koh Phi Phi Le, one of the islands that make up the Phi Phi Islands National Park.

We'll spend an hour scuba diving around the coral reefs, before returning to the surface for a brief break. Energised, we'll head back underwater for a second hour of diving and spotting the most vividly coloured tropical fish.

After around four and a half hours of diving, you'll be able to take a test in order to qualify for your SSI Open Water certificate. Afterwards, the activity will finish back at the original meeting point.

3-day course

If you want to perfect your diving technique, you can select the 3-day course option when booking. With this option, you'll have two more one-hour dives on Koh Phi Phi Le on the third day. You'll have to choose if you want to do the activity in the morning from 7:30 am to 12 pm, or in the afternoon from 1:20 pm to 6 pm.

Scuba diving theory

After making your reservation, we'll send you a dossier containing the theory of scuba diving. You must study this at home then bring the dossier with you on the first day of your course.

  • On the first day of the course you will have to pass a swimming test: 200 metres freestyle and no time limit.
