Video: Diving Skills in Koh Tao PADI Dive Course

Posted January 28th in Diving Courses

Fun afternoon in the swimming pool today, with two groups of PADI Open Water Divers taking their shallow water skills session.

Instructor Nicki is in action running a German language course for Suzanne from Austria. Meanwhile Lucas assisted by MSDT Alex ran a parallel session for Arogenae (USA), Nancy (Switzerland), Janine (Switzerland), Janz (Sweden) and Bernie (USA).

This is the first in-water session for the students, getting familiar using a scuba diving unit to breathe underwater. Plus they’ll practice lots of scuba diving skills to build confidence and prepare them for their open water dives over the coming days.

Here are a few more videos and images from today’s PADI Open Water training:
