As water covers 71% of the planet, scuba divers are said to live on a much bigger planet. Join this world for a day and discover scuba diving in Koh Kood.
Depart the hotel at 08:00 for the local dive shop to get prepped for a full-day of discovering the world of Scuba. The day will begin with learning some basics about the equipment, dive techniques and staying safe while underwater. There will be two dives on a local reef, richly populated with coral, tropical fish, stingrays, octopus and the occasional dolphin.
At first, there will be time given to get comfortable with breathing underwater and using the equipment in a shallow-water environment. This approach allows a more comfortable entry in scuba diving with the safety net of being able to stand up.
Once ready, the first dive will focus on gaining confidence and improving skills in a real-world environment with the instructor being there every step of the way. The local reef offers calm conditions and good visibility so that all focus can be on learning the sport and less on the water conditions.
Break for a casual, local lunch.
The second dive affords everyone the opportunity to employ their new-found skills while enjoying the sensation of moving in 3-dimensions and exploring the reef’s flora and fauna. For those interested in continuing their education, PADI certification courses are available.
Depart for the hotel around 3pm.
