A vacation can leave you with more than a few souvenirs and a fast-fading tan. At Elixir Divers on Koh Yao Yai, we’ll teach you a whole new way of enjoyment underwater. The 3-day Padi Open Water Diver Course is your first step in scuba diver certification. Once certified it allows you the freedom of diving without an instructor and qualifies you to dive independently to a maximum depth of 18 meters
These days you have 2 main ways to complete a course and receive your certification. Padi eLearning allows you to complete all of your theoretical parts including the final exam at home at your own pace and practical part here with us. The other way is the classic class where you finalize both theory and practice here with us, though we send you study materials in advance anyway.
Day 1: Course introduction, confined water training in the swimming pool, and theory. ( 5-6 hours )
Day 2: Two open water dives and theory. ( 5-6 hours )
Day 3: Two open water dives, theory, and final exam. ( 5-6 hours )
The Padi eLearning program is the same course except for the theoretical part, that you perform from your home and at your own pace before you arrive on Koh Yao. In this way, when you start your training course with us, you jump directly into the water.
The PADI Online diving courses let you learn the background information you need at an easy pace through friendly, interactive learning.
*The cost of the eLearning is 220 AUD$ that you pay on-line to PADI.
