Float and tread water for 10 minutes, again using any methods you want.
To begin open water course you must be at least 10 years old.

Richelieu rock is the best
We did a trip to Richelieu rock and we loved it. For sure the best dive site we dived in Thailand. We will be back next year

Plenty of rain
I booked a liveaboard trip. In the emails was said that January a good time was for the diving,with sunny skies and flat seas. We didn’t see the sunny skies but had plenty of rain during the trip. It spoiled the experience but I must say the staff did their best to make the best out it and the dives were still great. I’ll next trip again with you, hopefully can order some better weather.
