Open Water Diving Course for Louisa

Posted October 11th in Diving Courses

With near perfect diving conditions and the Gulf of Thailand as flat as a lake, this afternoon Louisa made the first underwater session of her PADI Open Water Course. Instructor Karl is running the course assisted by Rhys.

We start out in the swimming pool, getting familiar using scuba gear underwater and practicing skills in shallow water skills before proceeding out to the ocean.

Louisa did a great job and we’re looking forward to the first open water dives tomorrow, where we can explore to a maximum depth of 12M.
