Today we finished Dave and Stuart’s Padi Open Water Course, which turned out to be very special Koh Tao diving experience.
The guys arrived from the Full Moon Party over in Koh Phangan exhausted but happy to finally start their diving course and looking forward to getting wet. After a short orientation the pair were ready to go into their confined water session. I briefed the lads on the scuba diving skills which we’d be running through and showed them how to set up their equipment, and following our safety checks we headed to Japanese Gardens on the island of Koh Nang Yuan. With warm crystal clear water and array of different fishes the boys cruised through the skills with no hassle at all.

The following day we took our dive boat to Shark Island and then onto Aow Leuk for the first two 12 meters dives of the course. The dive sites as usual were top notch and were a real pleasure to dive.
But the best was saved till last. The next morning we made our way to Chumphon Pinacles dive site, north of Koh Tao in the Gulf of Thailand and our luck was in. We saw a 6 meter Whale shark swimming around the pinnacle. With the film team with us capturing all the footage the guys had a great memento of their trip, diving with the biggest fish in the ocean on during their PADI Open Water course.
Thanks guys and look forward to teaching your advanced course soon.
