Congratulations go out to Steph and Sofie from England as well as Abby and Jax from the Scottish Highlands on completion of their PADI Open Water Diving course here at Simple Life Divers, Koh Tao.
The girls were immediately put through their paces with a marathon academic session as soon as they stepped off the boat from Koh Phangan, fully preparing them for all eventualities as they ‘dove’ in to the wonderful world of scuba diving that we all love.
Completing the academics freed the girls up to jump straight into the deep end (of the pool) to practice skills and techniques essential for their future scuba diving experiences. After some flapping around and getting used to all of the equipment, the boisterous group were ready, if a little apprehensive, for their first open water dive at Laem Thien.
Following their buddy checks, we were treated to fantastic visibility for their first dive and the group made it down to 12 m with a few stops to equalise. The group followed their training well and completed their underwater exercises without a hitch.
Over the remainder of the PADI Open Water course we completed four dives at Shark Island, Chumpon Pinnacle and Hin Pee Wee in fantastic conditions and it was great to see confidences rise and technique greatly improve.
Steph and Sofie are keen to immediately continue their scuba diving experiences and will be starting their PADI Advanced course tomorrow. Regrettably Jax and Abby have already booked their forward travel from Koh Tao on to Cambodia but leave with a new passion for scuba diving. We hope to see them all again at Simple Life!
