After another busy Phangan full-moon party it was all stations go again here at Simple Life Divers on Sairee Beach, Koh Tao.
Having booked up at our office in Koh Phangan the 3 amigos Avi, Ronen and Roi decided that they had partied enough (over the previous 5 days of full moon party mayhem) and that they were ready to move on another place. They decided that they all wanted to get their PADI Open water certification here on Koh Tao.
The boys arrived to Koh Tao to find out that we had picked up another dude in the form of Ismael, who was traveling with his girlfriend Aline – already a certified diver. So whilst the boys were working through their PADI Open Water Koh Tao course, Aline joined for some non-training fun dives.

The 4 boys all breezed through their first in water confined session really quickly and confidently, mastering all of the 25 scuba skills which we covered.
We got round to our second in water experience where we made two open water dives, visiting the Japanese Gardens for dive one, and the second at Twins pinnacles on the opposite side of Nangyuan Island.
All 4 boys could not wait to get back into the water for the final 2 dives of the Padi open water course.
Dives 3 and 4 took place at Laem Thien Bay and Laem Thien Pinnacle respectively, located on the less dived eastern coast of Koh Tao.
The sun was shining, the weather was sweet and so all 4 boys moved their diving feet…!
Congratulations to you all-Aviram, Ronen, Roi and Ismael.
See you all next time.
