Discover Scuba Diving

This half-day beginners diving programme will bring you underwater for the first time.  It is the perfect introduction into the world of scuba diving, whether you want to try it out before committing to a full dive course or if you are just looking for something new and fun to try during your holiday.  Koh Phi Phi is blessed with warm, clear water and thousands of tropical fish, making it an ideal place to try diving.


Programme Structure:  

You will meet with your PADI instructor who’ll explain the basics of scuba diving and show you how the equipment works.  Then they will take you into either the swimming pool or off the beach in the shallow water (you can still stand up) and you’ll practice using all the gear and go for a short swim around to get you comfortable and feeling confident underwater.  After this, you’ll join our half-day boat trip and go for 2 real dives!  The instructor will be with you all the time, leaving you worry-free and able to concentrate on all the amazing marine life surrounding you.  You’ll see thousands of colourful fish and if you’re lucky also spot some sea turtles.  The maximum depth for the Discover Scuba is 12 metres.


Anybody aged 10 years or over may join the programme, you don’t have to be a strong swimmer, just in reasonably good health and eager to give it a try!

Bubblemaker Programme

Not 10 yet?  If your child is aged 8 or 9 years old, we can take them on a similar diving programme called the PADI Bubblemaker.  It includes a swimming pool try out session and then 2 tank dives to a maximum depth of 2 metres.
