SSI Open Water Course

Welcome to the World of Scuba Diving

Caring, Professional and Nice Human Beings

Did 3 dives over 3 days while my son did 2 on the last day. Very professional and humanistic team/instructors. Our refreshers were comprehensive and it felt as if they cared for our safety. Good pre-dive briefings and great dives, pointing out lots of stuff we wouldn’t have seen without them.

Cool crew! Can’t do better. I’d come back every time and would unabashedly recommend them.

      About the Course

      We specialise in flexible schedules and small classes. Normally we have 1-2 students per instructor and guarantee no more than 4 students per class. This means you get more attention from us and we get to know you a little better!


      The course begins with knowledge development through downloading the MySSI app and completing the theory chapters. Then when you arrive to Ko Lipe you will watch a short video and do equipment set ups with your SSI Instructor.


      Practice over 20 new scuba skills in a confined water area, off one of the many beautiful beaches on Koh Lipe! Learn new snorkelling skills, skin diving and scuba skills over 1-2 sessions. This allows you to practice and get comfortable with everything you have learnt. A 200 metre swim and 10 minute survival float are required for certification.


      Practice your new skills over 4 Open Water Dives and explore our stunning coral reefs! Jump on our speedboat to visit our local dive sites in the Tarutao National Marine Park to complete your training dives. You will practice buoyancy and emergency skills, dive planning and navigation techniques.

      Two dives are made on the first day to a maximum depth of 12 meters and two the following day to a maximum depth of 18 meters. Being on a speedboat you will come back to the dive shop in between dives for a break.

      If you don’t have enough time for this course or think you are not ready consider completing the SSI Try SCUBA Diving or SSI SCUBA Diver Course first.
