It’s been a busy week here at Simple Life Divers. With the weather on the up as we come into Koh Tao diving high season, the boat has been busy with eager divers both doing courses and fun diving.
A dive on Friday presented me with an opportunity to introduce my two fun divers Phillipa and Lizzy to black tip reef sharks at Aow Leuk. As we followed the contours of the ocean floor at 25 meters, we looked up to watch two sharks gliding over the top of us and then disappear into the distance – something that they couldn’t stop talking about when we got back onto the boat and I’m sure they won’t forget for a long time.
With the arrival of some new Divemaster candidates, I had the opportunity to show them around the local dive sites so they can familiarise themselves with the areas in preparation for when they are ready to start planning their own dives. Carl and Juliette saw their first Jenkins Ray at Twins and were amazed by the size of it. Today gave us an amazing morning at Chumphon Pinacle with 30 meter visibility and huge schools of fish all around the dive site. It was great to see the faces of all the Simple Life divers cruising around under the water surrounded by schools of barracuda.
Here’s to many more dives like that to come and a few chilled beers at Simple Life Resort tonight to celebrate a good day in the ocean and Bjorn becoming a certified PADI Open Water Diver.
And here’s a selection of photos from around the Koh Tao dive sites from the past few days:
