PADI Discover Scuba Diving

The PADI Discover Scuba Diving program at CSI: SAMUI lets the non-diver experience the thrill and adventure of scuba diving under the supervision of one of our PADI Professional Instructors. During your adventure in one of the shallow coral bays around Koh Tao, you'll master some basic concepts and scuba diving skills before heading off on an open water dive. You will learn about the basic equipment used in scuba diving, along with very important safety guidelines and procedures. During your diving experience you will have the chance to passively interact with marine life, and observe some of the magnificent corals and reef fish that inhabit The Gulf of Thailand.


PADI Scuba Diver

Not just a pre-requisite for the PADI Rescue Diver program. The ability to provide CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation)/ first-aid assistance is a skill that has applications in all areas of our lives. Not only for Scuba Divers but for anyone that wants to learn what to do in an emergency situation. WHY? Because you never know when you may find yourself in a situation where you need to provide emergency care for someone. Emergency First Response is a comprehensive program which is composed of two core modules that can be taught in tandem or as stand-alone courses.


PADI Rescue Diver

Scuba divers that complete the PADI Rescue Course generally find this the most satisfying and rewarding program they learn. After completing the PADI Open Water Diver and PADI Advanced Open Water Diver courses which are all about learning and developing dive skills, the PADI Rescue Diver program concentrates on helping and caring for others. Learning both in water and out of water rescue techniques, this gives participants a new sense of achievement and confidence in their diving abilities.
