Instructor Specialties on Chaweng Beach

Instructor Specialties on Chaweng Beach

Over the last two days, I conducted a few Instructor Specialties on Chaweng Beach with Simon who completed his IDC this last January on Koh Samui.

We conducted the night-, underwater navigation- and Search & Recovery Instructor specialties on Chaweng beach and today we added the Emergency Oxygen Provider and Nitrox Instructor courses.

We were lucky and during both our diving days we had reasonable conditions on Chaweng Beach which made the dives enjoyable.

During the Search & Recovery specialty we did a bit o a clean up as well and it's sad to see what we all found found, the pollution on the beach just doesn't seem to stop; 8 masks (one in mint condition, thanks!) two fins, loads of empty bottles and cans, buckets in various sizes, plastic, shoes, sunglasses etc. Without problems we filled three bags and had to stop putting more into them because the bags were full!

During the night dive we spotted this cute shrimp, with a crab looking on in the background.
