The highlight of April for all our staff and customers with defiantly Songkran! The Songkran Festival is Thai New Year which is celebrated by a whole island water fight. The Sairee Cottage Diving team combined forces with students and fun divers out the front of the shop and waged war on the neighboring dive schools! Amazing is the only way to describe the day![singlepic id=126 w=320 h=240 float=left]We want to say a big congrats to Andy, Nikki, Annette, Victor and Alex who completed their Dive Master training with us. You guys did awesome. It was amazing having you guys with us. We’re delighted to have Jono, Mel, Steff, Lillian, Kris and Fred join our DMT team. It’s going to be good craic with them around. We also want to say a big congrats to Rachel, Shep and Bowdie on completing their PADI IDC during May. The guys worked really hard and the after party was defiantly well deserved. [singlepic id=127 w=320 h=240 float=right]The diving conditions the past two months have been excellent. Chumphon Pinnacle has been alive with life. Whale Sharks have been spotted quite regularly and we’ve been lucky enough to have a camera with us every time. We’ve been registering the encounters with ECOCEAN, a Whale Shark monitoring site that tracks Whale Shark encounters. Three of the Whale Sharks we’ve seen had never been registered which is quite exciting. Another has been spotted twice more around Chumphon Pinnacle.
We’ve been busy uploading all our photos onto our Facebook page so get on Facebook and get tagging 😀 http://www.facebook.com/SaireeCottageDivingKohTao.
Hopefully see you all soon.
