Swapping frosty Toronto for sunny South-East Asia, Chris and Josie from Canada have started their PADI diving course here at Simple Life Dives.

Instructor Rodrigo is running the course and we’re set for a few fun days diving around Koh Tao.

Visibility underwater at most dive sites is good and the Gulf of Thailand is remains calm. We’re enjoying these last few weeks of great diving ahead of the seasonal monsoon arriving. Plus over the next day or two we’re experiencing unusually high tides.
