Koh Tao Eco Day, cleaning up the rubbish at Hin Wong.

cleanup300x225Another succesful day for the Koh Tao Eco Day which involved a whole heap of volunteers from various Diveshops around the island all getting together & heading to one part of the island to clear the place of trash both on the land & in the water. With Big Blue Conservations leadership this time we headed over to the East coast of the island to the beautiful Hin Wong Bay. Managed to collect so much rubbish that it actually took us 4 truck loads to remove all the rubbish up to the Garbage heap. I would like to add here that 90% of that rubbish has been floating in the sea for god knows how long and has over time drifted its way to Koh Tao & washed up on the beach or in the bay & originates from the mainland or the other islands in the Gulf. Of course some of that rubbish does originate from Koh Tao I'm sure, but I dont want you thinking its all us. Cos it aint!

Is it hard to learn to scuba dive?

ssi diving courses300x225As active recreational pastimes go, scuba diving is one of the easiest to learn. While you’re gliding around enjoying the underwater sights, you’re engaged in only three basic skills: floating, kicking and breathing. Of course, there’s more to it than that — becoming proficient at using the equipment and developing knowledge of scuba concepts and safety procedures — but if you can breathe through your mouth, chances are you can learn to scuba dive.

The necessary skills are not tough for most people to master. During scuba certification class, you’re taught the effects of increased water pressure and safe diving practices. You rehearse equipment-related skills in a controlled water setting until you feel comfortable, as well as practice what to do if things don’t go as planned.

The bulky scuba gear worn by many divers may seem intimidating, but learning to use it is straightforward. If you’ve snorkeled, you’re already familiar with the mask, snorkel and fins. The scuba unit consists of an air cylinder containing compressed breathing gas, buoyancy compensator (BC) jacket to help you float on the surface and maintain your desired depth underwater, and a regulator for you to breathe through. The exposure protection keeps you warm when diving in cool-water environments.

You don’t need to be a strong swimmer or an athlete to scuba dive, but some degree of comfort in the water certainly helps. Even if you enter scuba training with less than total confidence in your water skills, by the time you receive your first certification card, your comfort level will be greatly increased.

Learning to scuba dive is mostly a matter of attitude. If you are motivated to step through the door into an exciting new world, then the experience will prove both energizing and confidence-building.
