An Advanced Open Water or higher Certification is highly recommended. However, experienced Open Water divers can join, too. Inexperienced divers may be excluded from some of the more demanding dive spots (e.g. Coconut Point). Advanced Dive Courses can be conducted prior to the dive safari at our dive centers. You need a minimum of 2 days to get Advanced Open Water certified.
For your own safety and the safety of the dive crew, a check-dive before the dive safari commences is mandatory and included in the price.
The dive safari usually ends late afternoon, between 4 and 7pm, depending on weather conditions. Usually you need to book a room at the beach for the night, we can do that for you.
The dive safari starts at 6:30 am.
When doing the course in a traditional way which means the theory is done together at the same time in between diving it takes about 4 days to complete the course.
It takes minimum of 2-3 full days to complete PADI Open Water Diver course when the theory was done ahead of time via PADI eLearning (online study including exam) prior to arrival at the dive center.
