  • Hi Guys!

    I was wondering if there are any open water courses conduct during the weekdays instead of weekends?
    i prefers weekdays to weekend... and i am interested to learn diving soon.

    Thanks!

  • The theory and pool lessons can and usually conducted in the weekdays.  However, the open water dives are over the weekend, probably due to demand or lack of it over weekdays.

  • Like grbenji said.... most local course are conducted with the Open Water dives in the weekend.... Tioman, Aur, even Hantu. You therefore have only the choice of doing you course overseas.... where the DC could conduct course near anytime of the week.  ;)

    Of course.... if you have the $$$$$.... you could also 'booked' the DM for a weekday Open Water Dive. Price would be a matter between you, him/her and the DC. Goodluck.

  • Not aware of any local dive ops that do this.  I'm pretty sure the places actually at Tioman would do though if you got yourself there (either referral or full course).

  • Maybe try Freestyle Divers (www.freestyledivers.com.sg).  They can teach during the week.

    Doing your two days of open water dives might be a little tricky.  If you are happy to cover the cost of hiring a boat, I am sure that you could also do your open water dives during the week from Singapore (say at Hantu). 

    But would definately be cheaper to do a Live on Board ex Singapore, over the weekend (leave Friday night and return Sunday night).  The bus to Mersing isn't the most comfortable option.
