The fun part about this course is…. just about all of it! Learning to dive is simply incredible and you have to do it! You breathe underwater for the first time (something you’ll never forget) and learn what you need to know to become a certified diver.

On the 4th day you will head out on our dive boat to some of the best dive sites around Tioman for your final 2 Open Water dives toa depth of maximum 18 meters/60 feet.
