Sunshine, Showers & Scuba Diving Courses :)

Posted February 19th in Diving Courses

Yesterday it chucked it down with rain like we haven’t seen in ages. Torrential cats & dogs, rivers appearing where there shouldn’t be, accompanied by spectacular thunder and lightning. This is actually a fantastic thing for Koh Tao; We live on a small tropical island where fresh water is a precious commodity – so a good downpour refills the island’s water table.

Today we’re back to normal. Sunshine with a few light scattered showers, which keeps the temperature pleasant 😉 And it was instructor Rodrigo’s turn to take top the water, guiding Cornelia through the PADI open water scuba diving course. Today was there first session in the underwater, getting to grips breathing from scuba gear and learning dive skills in shallow water.

Just as they were about to submerge we were greeted with another light shower, making for a wonderful photo opportunity!
