Koh Tao: The July-Agust Fever!

PADI Open Water Diver Course

Yes, it is the time of the year where people arrive from everywhere to join us for their Diving Course. We always tell everyone that booking for those 2 months needs to be done in advanced, and we are not joking!

We see in the last few days so many people looking for accommodation and being told at every reception they go: “Sorry, we are full”. 

If you booked already or planning to do so soon, there is one thing for sure, you will be joining  a great crowd! A lot of action around and a great fun!

In that great crowd, there is 11 Dutch that decided to join us for their Open Water Course. Bas, Marie and 4 other assistants have been showing them the great things about Scuba Diving.

After some time in the classroom and the their first practice session in the pool, we went on our dive boat for their swim test and more skills practice.

From the beach of Japanese Garden, we also offered them an extra free dive in shallow water to prepare them even better for their first official dive on the following day.

Compass Navigation. Course Director Bas Van Riemsdijk

On the third day of course, we completed the theory in the morning and went back on the boat for the first 2 official dives to a maximum depth of 12m. In between dives, it was time to practice some compass navigation and brief one more time the famous CESA!

Controlled Emergency Swimming Ascent

Fourth day of the course, morning boat, we decided to take them to the Wreck of Sattakut! A nice present for their last 2 official dives! Maximum depth of 18m, they’ve been swimming around the captain’s cabin and all the rest of the history existing on the Navy boat. 

Being filmed by our professional underwater videographer, the day could not have ended in a better way then watching the movie at the bar of the Dive Center!!

Congratulation to all of you Dutchies!

One thing for sure, do not waste time!! The tropical paradise of Koh Tao is very busy and we don’t want you to come and be disappointed! Not only accommodation and resort and being very busy, but transportation as well.

A good tip, if you are already in Thailand, even if you plan to come to Koh Tao in a few weeks, you can book your train, bus or ferry ticket with any travel agency. The earlier, the better!
