Big congratulations to Przemyslaw & Sabina Westfal on completing their Scuba Diver upgrade to Open Water and Advanced Open Water courses at Davy Jones’ Locker.
It’s been nearly two years since Prezemyslaw & Sabina first completed Discover Scuba Diving and Scuba Diver with me in Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt. Since then we’ve kept in touch, and they decided to visit me in Koh Tao, Thailand to continue their learning.
This perfectly highlights the flexibility of the PADI system of education. Someone can start with a diving experience in one part of the world, and continue on with a portion of education that suits their time and budget. Then when it suits the student, they can complete the Open Water Course further on down the line.
It’s great to see old friends again in another country, and it’s good to know students are continuing to dive, and getting the same enjoyment out of it that I do. And it’s nice to reaffirm that I must be doing something right if people come back to visit!
Prezemyslaw & Sabina were lucky enough to spend over twenty minutes diving with a four metre Whale Shark on both Open Water dives three and four. In Koh Tao, November through to February is the time when Whale Sharks visit as part of their migration odyssey following the plankton blooms.
It’s Whale Shark season here in Koh Tao right now through until February. So if you want the chance to see one of these amazing creatures, come and visit us!
