Technology has brought about dramatic improvements in the tools we use in everyday life. We have seen a similar evolution in the dive industry. For this reason a new training option for the PADI Open Water Diver course has been developed. Searobin recommends completing your Open Water course using dive computers instead of the traditional Recreational Dive Planner.

Searobin is currently the only dive centre on Koh Samui offering the Dive computer option for the PADI Open Water Course in addition to the traditional Dive tables. You will be diving with a Dive computer during your Open Water course. Dive computers allow you to dive conveniently and efficiently. Experience shows that the great majority of divers will use a Dive computer instead of tables. Searobin will get you familiarized how to use dive computers which is a skill that will prove itself very useful during your entire dive career.

Go Deluxe We had created exclusive Deluxe Open Water course option to provide to our students with a high end course with an unmatched added value including a starting pack with high quality items and extra service to have even an easier and more comfortable start as certified diver.

The Fun Part

PADI Open water samuiThe fun part about this course is . . . well, just about all of it because learning to dive is incredible. You breathe underwater for the first time (something you'll never forget) and learn what you need to know to become a certified diver. You will be going into the ocean space and its most likely the closest that you will get to outer space!

During the course, you’ll make at least five pool dives in our 36 meter salt water chlorine free pool followed by four open water dives at prime location around Ko Samui.

What You Learn

The PADI / SSI Open Water Diver course consists of three main phases:

  • Knowledge Development (online, home study or in a classroom ) to understand basic principles of scuba diving
  • Confined Water Dives to learn basic scuba skills
  • Open Water Dives to review your skills and explore!

SSI OWD diver course samuiOur dive school's PADI / SSI Open Water Diver course lasts only three days for a group size of maximum of 4 people. In order to complete all the class room material and the confined water exercises in one day we have to limit the group size to 4 divers. However, if you prefer we can assign private instructor just for you.
PADI programs are performance based. You proceed as you demonstrate mastery of the scuba skills taught in the course. Small group sizes in Koh Samui ensure that you get personal attention from our dive school's PADI professionals.
Small group size allows you to work at a pace that is comfortable for you, relaxed and stress-free.  On the open water dives days, we use surface interval and boat journey time, from Koh Samui to the dive site and back, to review PADI Open Water course material and prepare for the open water dives.
