Exciting afternoon ahead at Simple Life Divers! The scuba diving internship gang and staff are participating in advanced safety training.

Chris Pearson from Koh Tao Rescue has visited us to run a special rescue training session. Chris will be simulating in water emergencies and the crew will be tasked with responding and handling whatever situations arise. Bado is back at the office awaiting the emergency calls as the team perform overall emergency management and deal with in-water problems.

It’s going to be interesting to see how the team perform and we look forward to Chris’ feedback in a few hours time. More to follow …
