The Kao Lak IDC is half way!

The Kao Lak IDC is half way!

Similan Diving Safaris is going to enjoy a day off from the IDC and so do Julia and Suzanne.
After a week of hard work, with Richard and Jeffree staffing this IDC because they both plan to apply for the up and coming PADI Course Director course, we deservedly go in to a day off and we complete the AI or Assistant Instructor course today.

Lots of rescues were practiced in confined water, this one under supervision of Richard.

Julia and Suzanne got the ball rolling on their Knowledge Development presentations and Julia is showing us how to use good old the RDP Table.

Jeff also joined us in order to staff this IDC. Jeff used to be my first Divemaster trainee, together with his girlfriend Michelle, some 11 years ago! They run a dive center; Eco Divers, on Tioman island in Malaysia, their home country.

Today we completed the Open Water dives on Koh Pajan, near the harbor and we used this long tail boat. Nice visibility and good conditions all over were ours! From left to right, Jeff, Suzanne, Julia and Richard.
An open water presentation, a Rescue-, an Adventures in Diving- and a CESA workshop were conducted plus Julia and Suzanne also completed an 800 meter snorkel. A busy day!

Everybody in the classroom after the Open Water, ready for the theory exams.

Stay tuned for more updates and let me know if you're interested in participating in my last IDC of this year on Koh Lanta, starting 29th November.
