Beginner Scuba Diving Courses

Take your first steps into scuba diving with The Dive Academy in Koh Samui.


For beginners there are three options available to begin your diving adventure: we offer the one day Discover Scuba Diving program, the two day PADI Scuba Diver Course and the most popular entry level diving course world wide the PADI Open Water Diver Course.

We take a maximum of 4 divers in a group or on a course and for those taking the one day Discover Scuba Diving experience we take a maximum of 3 in a group. We have by far the best diver training facilities of any dive centre on the island including 2 modern, air-conditioned classrooms where we use the latest PADI materials and digital products and at the same location as our dive centre we have Samui’s only 3.5m deep swimming pool purpose built for diver training. We also have a reputation for providing the highest levels of service, safety and fun.

The Discover Scuba Diving experience is a one day experience which allows you to dive to a maximum depth of 12 metres with one of our Instructors. It is not a certification but it is registered with PADI.

If you wanted to become a certified diver, there is the 2 day PADI Scuba Diver Course, which certifies you to dive anywhere in the world with a PADI Professional to a maximum depth of 12m, or the most popular beginner course is the PADI Open Water Diver Course which certifies you to a depth of 18m and takes 3 1/2 days.
