Is The Open Water Diver Course For Me?

Virtually anyone who is in good health, reasonably fit, and comfortable in the water can earn a Open Water Diver certification. You must be 15 years or older to begin the Open Water Diver programme. For those between 10 and 14 or have a child between these ages, the Junior Open Water Diver certification is available. It is the same thorough training but with some minor diving restrictions.

Open Water Diver: Course Structure


Typically, the Open Water Diver course takes 3-4 days of training with us at Stingray Divers in Ao NAng, Krabi. Scuba diving programs are performance based, so you proceed when you demonstrate mastery of the course skills. This allows you to work at a pace that is comfortable for you. 

You will need to complete some home study prior to the day of the open water course. We will then go over the Knowledge Reviews and exam with you which will be conducted at the dive center in Ao Nang. During the pool session you’ll learn and practice the skills over 5 dives you’ll need for open water. This is conducted in one of our local swimming pools in the Ao Nang district. Breathing underwater is an experience like no other – your first breaths in the pool are something you’ll likely remember forever!

Now it's time to hit the stunning Andaman Sea where you will complete 4 dives over 2 days demonstrating the skills you learned previously in the pool to a max depth of 18M in the safety of a dive professional.

Open Water classes are conducted on a regular basis in small groups in a large range of languages. Bookings can be made via our contact us page or simply by calling us on (+66) 0806942455. If there is any further info you may require regarding the Open Water Diver course or any of our services then again please don't hesitate to get in touch with the Stingray Divers team.
