- Become a certified PADI Open Water diver with the leading dive centre in Malaysia
The course takes some 4 days to complete and we start pretty much every day with small group sizes (average of 2 to 4 students, maximum of 6 student per instructor).
You will spend the first few days learning to dive from in our pool and from shore and head out on the last day to conduct your final dives off the boat at some of the prime sites around Tioman Island.
You have to know how to swim and float to enrol in the PADI OWD course. During the course you’ll need to do a swim test or a snorkeling test (without life jacket) and you’ll also need to float for 10 minutes.
