About the Activity:
Get picked up from your hotel in a car from Pattaya or Jomtien location or meet at the dive shop at around 8:00 AM.
Reach the dive site which takes about an hour by boat. Your instructor will help you put on and check your scuba equipment before entering the water.
Take your first exhilarating breaths underwater, in the shallow waters and you'll realize it's easy to breathe. Once you’re having fun and feeling confident the instructor will show you a couple of easy skills that you might use during the dive. You will then perform the skills the instructor has just shown you until you are comfortable doing them. These skills include clearing your mask, regulator clearing and regulator recovery.
Under close supervision of your instructor, you will be led onto a beautiful coral reef with it’s thousands of colorful tropical fish for an adventure you will never forget.
Get ready for lunch and a chat about all the amazing marine life we’d seen. If you fancy it there is also the chance to jump into the water for a snorkel during lunch-time.
After lunch on the boat we will relax and then go on a second dive, with no extra training required, just diving. The afternoon dive will be for about 1 hour as we interact with marine life on the reefs.
After the dive we will take a slow boat ride home and chat about all our dive stories of the day. End this exciting activity at around 4:00 PM

At age 15, the junior certification upgrades to a regular Open Water Diver certification.

It is essential that you don’t go scuba diving on an absolutely empty stomach. On the day of the dive, you should try to have a small breakfast. Remember it is important to keep the stomach almost full, not completely full. You should also carry a snack with you because the drive to the site is usually long.
You can take some nutrition bars or nuts and of course water. Along with this, post the dive you should eat because the entire ordeal is going to make you hungry. Usually the scuba diving agencies do provide for lunch so make sure that you check your package for the same.
