Alexis & Franco upgrade from Discover Scuba Diving to PADI Open Water

Posted January 29th in Diving Courses

Alexis and Franco from Santiago, Peru have just completed the PADI Open Water Course with instructor Rodrigo!

The couple actually started out a few days ago with the PADI Discover Scuba Diving, single day intro dive. But they had such a great time that they were keen to continue, upgrading to the full PADI Open Water Course.

If you’re not sure about scuba diving but are keen to try, PADI Discover Scuba Diving is a great way to start. It’s a closely supervised dive experience which gets you straight out in the water exploring Koh Tao‘s amazing corals and marine life. We run intro dives each day; Some basic scuba diving theory, practicing skills in shallow water then diving a coral reef to a maximum depth of 6 meters.

And if you have a great time the intro dive can be credited towards the full PADI Open Water Diver course, (which certifies you to dive to 18M anywhere worldwide). Upgrading to PADI Open Water takes an additional two and a half days, plus we’re able to give a financial credit from the intro dive towards the full course.
