Koh Tao PADI Open Water Course

Posted January 24th in Diving Courses

Congratulations to 5 new PADI Open Water Divers here at Simple Life divers, Koh Tao.

This has been a truly international group with  Lucie (France), Megan (USA-Texas), Rafael (Colombia), Dean (UK) and Norman (USA-California) getting certified to dive to 18M anywhere worldwide.

Guided by instructor Isabelle & MSDT Jessie we rounded off the course with morning dives at Twins and Junkyard dive sites.

The gang did a fantastic job, performing scuba skills perfectly, demonstrating good buoyancy control and making safe ascents and descents. They qualify as competent scuba divers and we hope they each continue to enjoy many more underwater adventures wherever their travels take them!

Here are a few more photos from the pool training (shallow water skills) and open water dives of the PADI Course:
