Five stunning girls arrived at Simple Life Divers, visiting Koh Tao to learn to scuba dive. When they first walked through the door of the dive shop, they didn’t have the first clue what the next four days would entail. But they were ready to take the plunge!
After hearing that one of the girls, Phoebe (aka Blondie) explaining that she thought the water pressure would make her a skinny midget I knew this was going to be an entertaining PADI Open Water course!
As we worked through the theory, shallow water skills and open water dives, the girls picked up the scuba skills and techniques with ease (thanks of course to their gifted instructor). We broke the course down into nice easy steps, making sure that everyone felt comfortable and properly understood all the important principles and safe diving practices. The girls followed their training perfectly and we enjoyed four great dives, during which (and contrary to belief) Phoebe did retain her normal size 🙂
The diving conditions for our open water dives were especially great – very flat ocean, little current and calm clear water with at least 20-30M visibility. Visiting the Chumphon Pinnacle on open water dive 3 we enjoyed some of the best visibility so far this year and had a fantastic time exploring the dive site and checking out all the marine life.
