Descriptions

This PADI Open Water Course will be taken place in Tioman Island, Juara Village. It takes some 3 full days to complete and we start courses literally every other day with small group sizes (average of 3 to 5 students).

The course includes 5 confined water modules where you learn the basic scuba diving skills, 4 open water dives where you demonstrate that you can perform those skills yourself, plus 5 theory sessions where you’ll watch videos, independently study the student manual and some homework which we call knowledge reviews. There are also 4 quizzes (multiple-choice) to be completed to test your knowledge, so we are able to give you additional information and prepare you for the final exam (50 questions, multiple-choice). Above mentioned theory can be done Online via PADI e-Learning without additional cost!

During the Day 1 of the course, you’ll be diving in shallow water dives from shore. However, on the last day of the course we will take you out by boat for your final two open water dives. We will visit a dive location in the vicinity of the Island, famous for its marine life and beauty. On this day,  you will dive to a maximum depth of 18 meters.

The duration of the training day will depend on your preference. We normally start at 09.00am, watch some videos, do some theory, go twice into the water for training and are finished between 4pm and 6pm with a good hour lunch break in between.
