Carrying straight on after the open water course, today Lindsay & Natalie qualified as PADI Advanced Open Water Divers! Joining them was Naomi who is taking a 2 month Koh Tao PADI Divemaster Internship and Laura and Chris, who came to Koh Tao planning to make a few fun dives and decided to go for their PADI Advanced Course.
Beginning with a deep dive at awesome Chumphon Pinnacles and a great underwater photography dive at Twins, this PADI Koh Tao dive course was shaping up to be something special! We followed those two training dives with a night dive, a peak performance buoyancy dive, and PADI’s underwater navigation dive. These guys really excelled in everything they attempted.
During the underwater navigation dive we split the group into two buddy teams, each having the opportunity to attempt to find the boat! Applying what they’ve learned about compass navigation and using natural landmarks and underwater features the guys did well with everyone surfacing pretty much next to the initial starting point! One of the best performance I’ve seen (and better than a lot of much more seasoned divers!).
So next step is the PADI rescue diver course….
