The earth is approximately 30% land. Care to find out what happens in the other 70%?


The Submersibles is here to help you take that first giant stride underwater to discover the aquatic environment through PADI Open Water Diver Course: the world’s most popular and widely recognized scuba course.


You will learn dive theory and practical skills such as buoyancy control, basic (and rarely needed) emergency procedures and general diving skills. Upon the course completion, you will not only be a qualified and competent diver, but also a diver who knows how to have fun under pressure! (The Submersibles’ tagline!)



  1. Minimum age of 15 years old (or 10 years for Junior OWD). For youths aged 15 and below, the presence of one or both of their parents/guardians during the course is strongly recommended.

  2. In reasonably good physical and mental health.

  3. Ability to swim 200m continuously (without stopping) and float 10min on the surface of water without any aid/assistance.

  4. Keen interest to have lots of fun.


Course Syllables:

  2. Pool Training: Now it is time to put the theory you have learnt to good use! The practical training in a swimming pool environment prepares you for the grand finale: the open water dives.
