PADI Discover Scuba – Course Schedule

We meet at 09:00am. After a short orientation, your instructor will give a short presentation on the basics of scuba diving equipment. Your Instructor will then go through some safe diving practices before briefing you for a short confined water session conducted in our swimming pool.

Crystal Dive is the only PADI Dive centre on Koh Tao that uses the option of a confined water session, in a swimming pool, and separate to the boat dive that afternoon. We do this for several reasons:

  • Student Safety
  • Student Comfort
  • Student Confidence
  • Customer Service

The confined water session takes around 30 minutes. Your Instructor will introduce some basic scuba skills you will use for the afternoon open water dive. You will have an opportunity to master these skills in our swimming pool (1-2 metres) before progressing to an open water dive site.

Once the confined water session is completed you will have time for some lunch. Then we will board our dive boat. We conduct the open water dive at one of Koh Tao’s shallow coral reef dive sites.

Depending on the conditions this could be Japanese Gardens located on the east side of Koh Nangyuan, Mango Bay located in the North of Koh Tao, or Aow Leuk, South East coast of Koh Tao.

Your instructor will brief you, go through pre-dive safety checks then we’ll enter the water for an underwater tour of the coral reef.

Usually we make shallow water entries so it’s a nice gradual decent and you’ll be feeling excited but quite comfortable as a result of your swimming pool session earlier in the day.

You can expect to see lots of coral species (hard brain & pore corals, sea whips and gorgonian fans) and many tropical fish species such as butterfly and angelfish, pink anemone fish, moray eels, wrasses, stingrays and more.

Following the dive we’ll return to the dive boat for a short rest, after which you’ll have the opportunity to make an optional second dive. The optional second dive is 1,000 THB.

Alternatively you may want to just relax in the sunshine on the dive boat sundeck before we return to the dive shop at about 5.30pm.

If after your PADI Discover Scuba Diving experience you are hooked and would like to continue diving, there are options available.

Sign up for additional intro dives the following day

Credit the PADI Discover Scuba Dive towards the PADI Open Water Course.
(This will take a further 2 to 2.5 days and you will be certified to dive to 18 metres anywhere worldwide.)
