Lots of dive training running here on Koh Tao at Simple Life Divers.

Over the past days Jonathan has learned to dive with instructor Sig, qualifying as a PADI Open Water Diver able to dive to 18M anywhere worldwide.

Meanwhile huge congratulations to Tom Ditshee who has been with us for a few months. Tom arrived here as an advanced open water diver and has since worked through his Emergency First Repsonder, PADI Rescue Diver and PADI Divemaster internship. Tom now graduates as a PADI Divemaster, competent guiding certified divers on underwater tours and assisting in the training of new PADI Divers.

Well done to both Jonathan and Tom 🙂

You too can join our team on Koh Tao: Dive Internships in Koh Tao, Thailand.
