Well done to Dave and Thomas for passing their PADI Advanced Open Water here at Simple Life Divers, Koh Tao, Thailand.
For this course the guys had to do the mandatory 30 meter deep dive and the underwater navigation dive. They also chose three elective dives, which were Peak Performance Buoyancy, the always exciting night dive a relaxing Fish Identification dive.

The first day began with the Deep dive, we were up nice and early and on our way to the best site on Koh Tao, Chumphon Pinnacles. The dive site was teaming with array of different shoals of fishes. Underwater visibility was typical for this time of year, 20-30 meters viz in clear blue water and the lads loved every minute of the dive. After a long surface interval we headed out for our second dive of the course – their peak performance buoyancy dive. The boat made it’s way to Twins where we visited Koh Tao’s newly constructed Buoyancy World dive site, where we used all the swim through tunnels, hoops and various other equipment to help with our breathing skills and improve our air consumption rate.
The following day we completed the rest of the course with the final three dives and lads went away with a big smile on their faces. As always the night dive was a lot of fun checking out the nocturnal sting rays, crabs and hunting barracuda, and the guys did well in both their underwater navigation and fish identification dives.
Well done each and congratulations on qualifying as PADI Advanced Divers.
