• Relationship between depth and pressure
• How different underwater pressures affect your body
We’ll watch some videos, discuss the content & complete some simple quizzes to test your understanding. And be sure not to worry, the minimum age to learn scuba diving with PADI is aged 10, so you shouldn’t find it too difficult.

Day 2 – Dive Planning & Confined Water Skills Practice
Day 2 (Morning) – Dive Planning
When scuba diving, you must plan every dive to ensure safety.
We will teach you how long you can spend at a particular depth for any given time. We’ll teach you to do this by using PADI’s recreational dive planner.
We will also practice some examples to ensure you are confident then complete a multiple choice exam to finish off your academics.
Day 2 (Afternoon) – Confined Water Skills Practice (shallow)
We will help you get into your scuba gear for the first time and head for a confined shallow water session. We’ll start by learning some basic scuba skills. This will include equipment assembly, buddy checks, mask & regulator skills, alternate air source exercises, buoyancy skills & ascent procedures.

Day 3 (Afternoon) – PADI Open Water Dives 1 & 2
Time to bring take your newly learned skills and knowledge to the sea. Your first two ‘proper dives’ will be to a maximum depth of 12 metres. Each dive will last around 45 minutes – we’ll repeat some of your shallow skills a little deeper plus explore the dive sites.
We’ll take you to shallower dive sites where you’ll be diving on coral reefs and around shallow pinnacles. Our chosen dive sites are ideal for beginners with shallow depth and sandy areas for practising skills.

Day 4 – PADI Open Water Dives 3 & 4 & Certification
Day 4 (Morning) – PADI Open Water Dives 3 & 4
For your final 2 dives of the course, you’ll get down to your maximum depth of 18 metres. By now, you should be controlled & comfortable in the water so we can visit the more distant dive sites.

Day 4 (Afternoon or Evening) – Certification
We’ll celebrate you completing your PADI Open Water Course over a couple of cold beers.
We’ll complete your certification paperwork, and you’ll be issued with your PADI Open Water certification. This is a diving certification for life, allowing you to dive with a buddy, to 18 metres in conditions similar to those in which you learned to dive.

This is where it gets a little more serious, a little deeper and a lot more fun!

PADI Advanced Open Water Course Schedule (Subject to change)

Day 1 – Departure to Koh Lipe 
Day 1 (Morning) – Departure to Koh Lipe
Departure from Langkawi: Our service will pick up you at Langkawi Airport/Pantai Cenang area hotel around 8:00am to board the ferry at 9:30am (Malaysia time) at Telaga Terminal. Immigration procedure will start around 8am and you will reach Koh Lipe about 10.30am (Thailand time). Complete immigration procedure at check point and proceed to dive resort for check in (walking distance).

Day 1 (Afternoon) / Day 2 /Day 3 (Morning) – Diving
The PADI Advanced Open Water Course consists of five more open water dives which introduce exciting new areas of diving. The duration of the course is two or three days depending on which dives you choose. Two of the dives are mandatory – the deep dive and underwater navigation dive.

In the deep dive we’ll take you right down to 30 metres. We’ll make a test to see if you suffer any nitrogen narcosis, examine a pressure related object to appreciate the surrounding four atmospheres and make a depth gauge comparison to demonstrate the differences between analogue and digital meters. We’ll then explore the site and make a slow ascent up to safety stop depth.

During the underwater navigation dive we’ll explain the principles we use to find our way around the dive sites. This includes compass work and using a timing device, combined with natural navigation such as depth, bottom composition, contour, rock formations, corals and sunlight. You’ll complete some simple exercises such as measuring distances and navigating a square pattern, then armed with a map of the dive site you’ll lead us around the reef and hopefully back to the boat in a timely fashion. Sounds easy?

The other three dives are optional – you can discuss with your instructor which dives will benefit you most. Options include;
Peak performance buoyancy: In this dive we aim to get you moving through the water more efficiently, resulting in a reduced air consumption (so longer dives). We’ll concentrate on how much weight you’re wearing and where you are positioning them, how you are controlling your breathing and ensuring your equipment is streamlined. We’ll play lots of games underwater to make you focus on your buoyancy control. Choosing this dive can make a big improvement to your diving.

Night Dive: Something completely different and not to be missed! Armed with an underwater flashlight you’ll plunge down into the darkness to explore the reef by night. We get giant barracuda coming in for night time hunting action. The barracudas follow in your shadow, darting out to snap up small rabbit fish! Also expect to see corals filter feeding, lots more crabs plus increased stingray activity.

Multi level & Computer Dive: Deep diving is fun as it extends the limits of your exploration, but bottom time becomes limited if you follow a single level dive profile. If we move to a more sophisticated planning technique, using a multi level plan (and back this up by wearing a dive computer) we can vastly increase our available bottom time. This also allows us an opportunity to make another great deep dive.

Underwater Naturalist: Learn more about the aquatic realm, appreciating the relationships between different species and starting to identify some of the marine organisms that we see.

Search and Recovery: Find out how to execute underwater search patterns such as a U – search or expanding square. When you locate an object, what if it is too heavy or bulky to safely lift it using your BCD? We’ll show you how to utilize a lifting device such as a lift bag, to safely recover the object.

Underwater Photography: Have a go at capturing some underwater snaps using a digital camera with underwater housing. First we’ll teach you a few simple rules to improve your chances of getting the perfect shot. We’ll make the dive then later download the images to a computer and use Photoshop to touch up your photos. We’ll burn the photos onto CD so you have a nice souvenir to take home. Costs 1000 baht extra.

Drift Dive: Why fight against a strong current for half a dive when you can ‘go with the flow’ and have the boat move and pick you up. Great fun flying effortlessly along in the current.

Day 3 – Departure to Langkawi 
Day 3 (Afternoon) – Departure to Langkawi
Departure to Langkawi: Check out from dive resort. Proceed to Koh Lipe immigration check point by 2pm to board the 4:30pm (Thailand Time) ferry back to Langkawi. Reach Langkawi around 6:30pm (Malaysia time). We will transfer you from Telaga Terminal to Langkawi Airport/Pantai Cenang area hotel.

Day 1 (Afternoon) / Day 2 / Day 3/ Day 4/ Day 5 (Morning) – Diving

Up till now your training has focused on making you a better diver. Now it’s time to think about everyone else!

We start with a one day CPR and first aid qualification.
You watch a video during the morning, then undertake a practical session in the afternoon learning the steps you take in dealing with an accident. This includes assessing the scene, alerting EMS, checking for breathing, circulation, serious bleeding, spinal injuries and shock then progressing onto secondary care. This is followed by a written exam.

The rescue course occupies the following three days – academics each morning and water work in the afternoons.

On the first day of rescue we look at surface problems, tired and panicked divers, rescues where you can remain on the boat and others where you need to enter the water. We also take our first look at coping with an unconscious diver at the surface, and inventory all the objects on the boat which might
be useful in an emergency.

On day two we move into underwater problems – sorting out divers who are overexerted, have bad buoyancy or are out of air. We practice solving these problems during the ‘disaster dive’ where we’ll simulate situations for you to deal with. We then start to look at how to manage an emergency, run search patterns and surface an unconscious diver, plus make an egress to the boat.

Day three starts with a review of the skills you’ve learned, then progresses into final scenarios. You will be in charge of the boat, your instructor and other DJL staff will simulate problems which you will have to manage. Expect the worst – swimmers getting hit by drifting jellyfish, missing divers, unconscious victims and more. . .

The PADI Rescue Diver Course is hard work, but great fun & very rewarding.
