I can’t explain how much fun we had with this group!
Cynthia and Kimberley from Holland and Johannes from Germany joined instructor Jo and myself on their PADI Advanced Open Water course here on Koh Tao.
Cynthia, Johannes and I started the course with a Peak Performance Buoyancy dive, where we had loads of fun underwater improving ourselves as divers (and flooding our masks by laughing so much), while Jo took Kimberley on a Fish Identification Adventure at Twins.
After that we all joined together to learn the invaluable skills of navigation underwater which was Cynthia’s absolute favourite subject (not!!) as she has managed in the past to navigate a friend in Holland over the phone, and missed out a whole county/province whilst doing so! 😂
All 3 students then joined me on a relaxing night dive on Sairee reef, where we saw a majestic Blue Spotted Ray, Hermit Crabs, Giant Clams and of course, the bioluminescence!!
The following day we experienced what changes depth and pressure brings to us at 30 meters on our deep dive at Chumphon Pinnacle and experienced great shoals of fish and gigantic Groupers in the process.
And this adventure of a course ended with our last dive on the HTMS Sattakut ship wreck, which is resting just off the west coast of Koh Tao. This eerie, but totally awesome dive, added loads of points on our explorer score board.
Jo and I really enjoyed this course and the awesome students we were blessed with, and we hope to see them again soon!
