As a PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Center, you will be in the hands of talented people with a great passion for diving when you take that initial step – The Open Water Diver Course. The Perhentian Islands are a perfect location pursuing dive courses. Anything from the initial Open Water Course and all the way to Instructor level courses are being taught at this location with great skill and enthusiasm. With sites that include a spectacular pinnacle, half a dozen wrecks and awesome reef life, you will get an unforgettable first experience in the world of diving.

Dive Dive Dive Hammock time! Combine chilled Malaysian Island life with the daily life of a dynamic, professional and really lovely dive center. You will be treated like family here and by the end of it, you will not want to leave. Dive centers vary as much as the diving does. But sometimes you hit a strike, and this is one of those cases. Wake up in your divers-dorm, shuffle through the door to the dive center, grab a cup of coffee and experience the vibe of divers at work. As a PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Center, you will be in the hands of talented people with a great passion for diving to expand your experience.

The Location Explore the reefs with the dive center, trek through the jungle that covers the island, or snorkel from beach to beach. It is a green island, full of life, but no roads, no cars, and absolutely NO stress! As the sun sets, grab a seafood bbq dinner on the beach. And if you are not diving the next day, take a 10-minute walk over to Long Beach and dance barefooted in the sand till the morning arrives together with backpackers and locals alike. You can always grab a boat taxi to a secluded beach, or do the short walk through the jungle to the famous long beach for a party, but the serenity and the all time presence of nature in Coral Bay will always drag you back in the morning! And if you are a little fresh, then jump in the ocean for an early morning snorkel on the corner reef to maximize your luck of seeing little black reef sharks buzzing around beneath you.

Introduction to course
The PADI Open Water Diver course is the most popular diving certificate worldwide. After completing this 3-4 day course you are certified to dive to 18m independently with a buddy. The course consists of five modules of learning. You study via a self-study workbook or offline-app, completing  knowledge reviews for each chapter. This process is complemented by videos accompanying each chapter to reinforce what you have learned. The instructor reviews everything with you to ensure that you have fully understood everything. The practical learning consists of confined water lagoon sessions and four open water dives. Dive one and two are conducted at a depth of maximum 12m and dive three and four are conducted at a maximum depth of 18m. The final stage of the PADI Open Water course is an exam, which is a multiple choice exam covering all that you have learnt. Remember that the course is performance based and not time based. The course generally takes 3 to 4 days, with the theoretical, the confined water lagoon and the open water sessions successfully passed.



DIVE PACKAGE:
Open Water Course (18m) - 5 days / 4 nights
The PADI Open Water Course is performance based. That means you have to understand and pass the theory and perform the in-water skills correctly and with ease. Therefore, the itinerary can vary slightly from course to course. The course will take 3 to 4 days depending on the students enrolled. To give you an idea of what to expect, see the itinerary below:

Accommodation

On Perhentian Kecil, in the quiet beach of Coral Bay... We have chosen 2 types of acommodation. A dorm with 12 beds, and private beachfront bungalows. Both options has your budget in mind, are placed near the dive center, is safe and quite typical for the islands of The Perhentians. Dorm accommodation: If you want to stay on a small budget (because you know you will be spending your days diving, hanging out on the beach and trekking through the jungle trails), the dorm accommodation is perfect for you. Staying in the dorm, means you will be staying in the same building as the dive center. You are free to hang out at the lounge area of the dive center, which is accesible 24/7 and socially lively. The dorm itself is basic, comes with a fan to cool you and your fellow divers at night, a bathroom with a cold water shower, a mosquito net for your bed and wifi. PLEASE NOTE: The dorm is reserved for divers only. If you are traveling with non divers, and want to share accommodation with them, you must book a private bungalow! Private Bungalow accommodation: We have chosen the accommodations at Maya Chalets because of the amazing beach frontage these funky little bungalows provide and the overall peace and calmness that overflows the place... Plus, it is right next door to the dive center. The wooden bungalows are pretty straight forward. they have a fan to cool you at night, and a cold fresh shower in a private bathroom to cool you during the day. The best feature is your private bungalow porch with a hammock and oceanview. Perfect for afternoon napping!

Local transport

To get to The Perhentians and your tropical island paradise, you will have to find your way to Kuala Besut jetty. Popular ways to get to Kuala Besut from the nearest airport (Kota Bharu) are via the "Grab" App or an airport taxi. Once you reach the jetty complex at Kuala Besut, find the office for "Save Park Holidays". This is the boat company that will arrange your boat transfer. You just need to mention to them that you are a customer of our dive center (more details on your voucher). Once you get on the boat the boat driver should know to drop you off at Coral Bay.

Once you get off at the Coral Bay jetty on Perhentian Kecil, just walk down the beach for around 100 metres. The dive center and your accommodation is right in the middle of the beach.
