Whale Sharks and Bull Sharks for New Year

Whale shark in Koh Tao

In Thailand the norm is to give gifts to friends and family to wish them the best for the New Year.This morning Tremayne, Caley, Deborah and Christina were given a Whale Shark, Bull Sharks and a PADI Open Water License!

Having completed their two classroom sessions, shallow skills in the pool, and two preparatory dives, this morning saw us heading to Chumphon Pinnacles for the deepest dive of the course, right down to 18m.

Descending upon the line we were greeted by a whale shark which accompanied us through to our maximum depth of 18m, where it was replaced by numerous bull Sharks and barracuda.

At the end of this enthralling dive we conducted a safety stop at 5m where the whale shark again greeted us and then saw us off to the surface and out of the water. What a way to finish Dive 3 of the Open Water Course!

Happy New Year and congratulations to Tremayne, Caley, Deborah and Christina!
