Just finished one of the best PADI Open Water groups ever with Steve from the UK and John from the States. What an absolute pleasure!
Dive 1 of the Open water was at Japanese Gardens with 18 meter visibility and Dive 2 at Twins where the viz was easily in excess of 20M.
On the way up the buoy line the guys start pointing behind me. I turned to see the largest Hawksbill Turtle I have ever seem with a Remora on it’s stomach.
Then the following morning we made open water Dive 3 at White Rock and Dive 4 at Hin Pee Wee.
The guys then decided to continue and do their PADI Advanced course, during which we made our underwater navigation dive at Mango Bay, then our peak performance buoyancy dive at Twins. We saw loads of Bat Fish at the Buoyancy World artificial reef just off twins and some massive Hermit Crabs (pictured).
That evening we did our Night dive off of Sairee Beach just as the sun was setting we were greeted by no less than three Blue Spotted rays.
The following morning we headed out to do our Deep Dive at Green Rock which turned out to be the guys favorite dive of all. Nice and relaxed and with lots of Marine life. After Green Rock we went to the HTMS Sattakut to do our wreck dive. Visibility wasn’t fantastic at depth but it did add to the mystery and eerie atmosphere of the wreck itself.
So a massive congratulations to Steve and John for completing their PADI Open Water and Advanced Courses, hope to see you guys again soon!
