My first PADI Open Water Course!


Wednesday 06-07-2011

Today Finley got a tour around Sairee Village in Koh Tao.... Finley met so many new friends and most of all shark enthusiasts that have been promoting, talking and sharing stories about sharks for many years, now finally Finley got to know the local people, people that care!

Finley visited many places like; Coffee Corner, Sai's Pharmacy, Tzunami Clothing Shop, Chopper's Bar's and Grill, the Noodle stand and Porto Bello Italian Restaurant to spread the word for saving the Sharks!

Finley had to hurry, because at 17:00 she started her first PADI Open Water Course!

Finley met her fellow students, 16 in total with a 12 year old Junior Open Water, and what an orientation it was! After signing all the necessary paperwork, Finley listened to the schedule. On this course there were 4 PADI Instructors, 2 PADIDivemasters and 2 Divemaster Trainee's! This group was Awesome!

Finley talked alot about her perfect swimming skills do, but was excited for what's ahead!

Tomorrow Confined 1 to 5 and then Knowledge development chapter 1, 2 and 3....
