The next day you can join the other divers on the boat and your instructor will take care of you while you explore the amazing reefs and meet the incredible underwater creatures that we are so lucky to get to see at Koh Ha or Koh Bida. You will experience what diving is all about... the freedom, the weightlessness... the incredible marine life.

PADI Scuba Diver Course - Can I dive now and again without doing the pool sessions?
In just 2 days you can complete some dive theory to get familiar with dive practices, practice more exercises in the pool to become more comfortable, and then go diving around the reef to get used to diving in the open sea. At the end of this course you will have a license that allows you to dive anywhere in the world with other divers to a maximum depth of 12 meters while under the supervision of a PADI professional. Best part is you pay the same price as experienced divers every time you dive in the future.

Now you can see the things you want to see underwater, take photos, see the fish you like and dive at your own pace.
