Phuket Scuba Diving Trip - October 2015

On Sunday 18 October at 6:30am, Ajarn Stephanie, Ajarn Greg and ten boarding students departed from Prem to Mom Tri's Villa Royale in Phuket. 

Day one began at the Raya Diving School where Ajarn Greg and the students completed the theory aspect of the PADI diving course followed by an afternoon of practical scuba diving skills in the swimming pool. 

Day two began on board a boat from Chalong Pier to a small island approximately 40 minutes away. Here the students were able to further develop their knowledge and improve their skills off the beautiful island shores. That afternoon was spent on the white sandy beach enjoying the last of the daylight by the sea with a picnic area to relax in along music and sporting equipment. Following the activities a variety of pizzas were delivered and enjoyed by all.

Day three was spent at a location with beautiful coral reefs and marine life. Students were given the opportunity to enjoy the amazing underwater world and a variety of sea life was seen: eagle rays, pufferfish, sea snakes, schools of fish, starfish and more. The students were then able to take their final open water dive. Following the dives the theory tests and final exams were completed. 

Throughout completion of the PADI diving course every student participated with enthusiasm, courage and persistence. The course was intense and challenging and we pass on our congratulations to everyone, it was an enjoyable expedition and overall a wonderful experience.

Following the scuba diving course the students were able to relax and enjoy the rest of their holiday including a trip to Jungle Splash, the island's best water-park, it was a day full of fun and excitement! Everyone enjoyed the water slides, wave pool, lazy river and music at the water park. It was a great way to finish such a wonderful week.
