    What an adventure!! I am so afraid of water. I didn’t learn to swim as a kid either as we didn’t have access to a pool and since my mom is afraid of water, too, we didn’t find ourself at the beach or anything either! So, I’m determined to give my kids more access. They both swim like fish and we often snorkel when we travel….I’m thinking diving is in our future when they get older!! I don’t want to give them my fear. The world is a big and wonderful place!

      You are so so brave. I am not sure I could overcome my own fear to benefit my son but I sure as day would want to. I really admire that. You should really try it, you do not really need to be able to swim when you are actually diving, but to pass the test you need to be able to a little

  2. I have been meaning to learn how to dive for years and years. I will have to keep this place in mind next time I am in Thailand. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I learned to dive on Koh Tao, but this seems like an awesome place too. Glad you had a great experience, it’s so interesting to learn about diving isn’t it? It’s a shame you got sick half way through, weirdly the same thing happened to me.

    Wow! I haven’t done any diving or snorkeling yet! Good to know about these places which provide training at a low cost!
    Whoo! International instructors incl Scottish & Australians? Cool!

    I have always wanted to try diving. I love snorkeling but the thought of going deep under the water still kind of frightens me. Someday though… someday! Awesome picture under the water, by the way!

      Thank you! It was a great photographer for the school who came and got pictures for us. You can do it, it is scary but so, so worth it

  6. PIDS sounds like one of the best diving schools. I like that the instructors helped you a lot and answered your questions. It can be daunting as a first timer. The underwater photo looks good. I live in Oriental Mindoro, Philippines. We have diving schools here too. I am more eager now to learn diving after reading your post.

  7. Scuba diving is an interesting experience – it’s unreal how beautiful the underwater marine life is. Sadly, I flunked out of diving class. I only done this once too. But I haven’t stopped dreaming about the beauty that is lurking underneath the water.

  8. Water scares me however I did do the submarine diving in Mauritius last year. My recent experience with snorkeling in Koh Chang was not one of the best but yes I want to have the courage to diving some day. This inspires for sure.
