Australian International School Hong Kong visiting and diving Koh Samui

Australian International School Hong Kong visiting and diving Koh Samui

For the third year in a row, the Australian International School Hong Kong is visiting and diving around Koh Samui with it's students.
This trip we had 19 Open Water diver students and 3 Advanced Open Water diver students, one of the Advanced Open Water diver students was a teacher and together with two other teachers who had achieved this rating already, they were supervising the trip. Thanks to Steven, Anne and Liz.
All 4 of our Instructors plus Krit, Gav and Mikhail who are participating in the MSDT internship were teaching the 15 and 16 old year kids over a 4 days Open Water diver course.

Under a warm and sunny sky we sat sail to Sail Rock.

On the way over to the dive site of the day, Sail Rock, there was plenty of time to complete Knowledge Review 5 and the Final exam, before the dives of the day started.


It was great to see the MV Waverunner back in action again on Koh Samui shores. The boat accommodates up to 80 divers and snorkelers so today was a nice amount of people on the boat.


The actual destination of today; Sail Rock

The dive site was gorgeous today, during the first dive there was hardly any current at all but lots of different schools of fish, including Batfish, young Barracuda's, adult Yellowtail Barracuda's, Trevally's and plenty more.

A cleaner shrimp I saw during the second dive today, also at Sail Rock.


Filling out the certification cards with instructors Krit and Mikhail, excitement all around.

A good day was had by all and we look forward seeing you back next year!
