Renja, Duncan and Beau from Australia and Natalia from Switzerland are celebrating their Christmas success of becoming PADI Open Water Divers here at Simple Life Divers.
The group made a start to their course on Christmas Eve with a couple of videos before we took the day off to celebrate the holiday. The following day the guys came bouncing back raring to go in full festive spirit.
We started with some dive theory about safe diving practices, planning dives and how our equipment works before the guys were ready to hit the water. They got their first taste for diving in the shallows of a beach off of the island Koh Nangyuan where they learnt to master the skills for diving, which they completed with ease.

The following day the guys dived straight in and had a great first dive at Twins where they learnt how to control their buoyancy and had great fun with the Christmas tree coral, yeah that’s you Ren. The group then completed their second dive at White Rock where they reached a depth of 12m and completed some further skills.
Finally, our last two dives allowed us to explore right down to the PADI Open Water maximum depth of 18m, where we got to see groupers, bat fish, queen fish and more at dive sites Shark Island and Hin Pee Wee.
