SSI Platinum Scuba Instructors

 Lots of awards from SSI were sent out yesterday to some of our Instructors who have shone brightly over the last year or so & have been commendd for their services to Scub Diver Education, their professionalism & for the amount of students they've trained. Special mention goes to Instructors Felix, Guy, Petra, Luke, Neil, Iain, Tosh, Simon, G, Nick, Chloe who have all been awarded the very respectable Platinum  Instructor Card. One more rung of the ladder guys & you'll join the exclusive Platinum Pro Membership of which we have only 1 member of staff who's reached that particular echelon. Now I wonder who that was again?

One of the Best Experiences in South East Asia

“Great teaching from great instructors. Best place in Thailand” -5 of 5 stars Reviewed on Trip Advisor July 19, 2013- I arrived on Koh Tao not knowing which dive school to choose but from looking at the amazing reviews on trip advisor I chose this one and was not disappointed at all. I walked to the big blue 1 center which is right on the beach and was taken through the steps and plans by one of the instructors in the office. My instructor was Tim, who was amazing (even with the constant beer fines). He took everybody through the 4 open water course with a friendly but professional manner and is really brilliant at his job. The food at Big Blue 1 restaurant is excellent and around the same price as the other beach resorts. You will get cheaper meals further inland but they come without the awesome view. I was also lucky enough to have John Huntington on the boat with us teaching another student to dive, he was brilliant fun to talk to and also helped me a lot with snorkeling trips I was planning around the island. (I did get to see some Blacktips by the way John!). Even when you're not diving, the instructors will help you with any questions you may have about the island and seem happy to do so. Overall, one of the best experiences I've had in South East Asia and I'm just annoyed I didn't get to spend more time there. I will definitely be back to complete further diving qualifications though! Thanks guys! Especially Tim and John. 

Koh Phangan Full Moon Party rush... due... any... minute...NOW!

Its the calm before the storm what with the Koh Phangan Full Moon Party tonight so we've donned our rubber gloves & french maids outfits & are knee deep in soap suds & dettol water as we give the place a damn good spring cleaning! We've cleaned out the Poonama Canal, we've exploded the abandoned Bikes in the car park, & we've cleared out the equipment rooms of all the piles of debris & waste products that have been collecting there over the years & it looks like we're spot on ready & good to go again. All we need now is the Rush! 5... 4... 3... 2... ....
