Through the high season as weather permits, we reguarly dive from Phukets West Coast beaches. There are some fantastic sights to see and marine life to meet just off the local beaches.
The PADI Open Water beach option is the same 5 Star PADI training by the same experienced Instructors as any of our other options. We use the beach instead of paying boat costs to go to one of the local islands therfore reducing our costs and your costs.
The PADI Open Water course beach diving is also ideal for people who may not feel comfortable on boats or who have partners who want to accompany us to the beach and watch us having all the fun.
Talk to us today about planning your Open Water course at the beach in Phuket.
Start today with PADI eLearning and save time in the classroom.If you have completed all the eLearning theory in advance, you'll be ready to get straight into the pool. This will give you more time in the pool to practice what we teach you.
PADI eLearning fees are paid directly to PADI not Kiwidiver.
Learning to dive with PADI 5 Star Dive centre Kiwidiver.com is not difficult. We start by making sure you understand what it is all about by completing some Knowledge Development (Theory) covering some basic principles and diving procedures. You learn how pressure affects your body, how to choose the best gear and how to plan dives. You have your PADI manual to read, plus we watch some DVD's in our airconditioned classroom and then you take some simple quizzes to review your knowlledge. (This theory can be completed before you arrive with PADI eLearning)
After your Knowledge development we get you straight in the pool to put what you have learned into practice. Your professional Instructor will show you and help you practice basic dive skills such as clearing water from your mask, setting up your gear, buoyancy control and proper entry techniques.
Then over the following two days you get to practice everything you have learnt in the pool by putting it into practice in the Open Water with your instructor while diving some of the best dive sites in Thailand.
