Today both Will & I are Divers! Whoo! Its something I would have never thought I could do but after 4 dives, max depth 19.5m & thanks to Bruno the best dive instructor ever, I love it! I saw Nemo in his anemone :D Will has turned into a scuba junkie and has already completed his advanced too. Our group was lovely it was Will & I, a French couple called Jon & Jade, a German guy called George and of course Bruno! I ended up a bit behind after a traumatic first entry to the sea where I tripped in face first loosing fins and all. But after a good pool dive to increase my confidence Bruno got me back on the boat where we headed for the Japanese Gardens and The Twins. They were perfect dives! Next day I completed my last two at Southwest pinnacle & White Rock. I saw Angel fish, Butterfly fish, Parrot fish <3 Snappers, Groupers, Fusiliers, Barracuda, Puffa fish, Stingrays, Will even saw a Whale Shark!!
Koh Tao is definitely the place to dive. It was a bit of an ordeal getting there on the Chumpon night ferry (cargo boat with a dorm) but Alan at the office was great and set up our boat, accommodation & dive course at Asia Divers. Everybody knows Alan the Manger :) Asia divers was perfect for me, it was so friendly and they made us feel so comfortable in the water. Brilliant food on the same street too even managed to have bacon & cheese at a cute little bakery with the most delicious Banana and coconut milk cake.
I feel amazing now I managed to do it and overcome my fear! Bring on diving in Sipidan!
