Ever thought about becomming a Rescue Diver

Rescue1300x225Being a Rescue Diver. It evokes mental images of you jumping from helicopters into frigid waters like Kevin Costner in The Guardian. While becoming a rescue diver won't make you a virile hunk from Hollywood, it can be a challenging and rewarding experience.

Rescue training takes you beyond the purely recreational level by expanding your knowledge and skills to assist other divers, handle problems and emergencies, and prevent those problems, leaving you with a sense of security as a diver that cannot be obtained in any other way. Rescue certification is a prerequisite for all dive professional level training.

The course makes the serious subject of accident management enjoyable and rewarding. Until now, the emphasis of your training has been you and your dive buddy; the rescue training teaches you to make diving more safe and enjoyable for others.
During this course, you'll learn how to foresee, prevent and manage potential diving accidents; from assisting a tired diver to handling possible emergency scenarios, you'll practise applying the knowledge and skills that can make the difference in the unlikely event that problems do arise.
You must be an Open Water Diver and have recognised CPR certification, such as the Emergency First Response , within the past two years. You may be asked for proof of logged dives. Big Blue provides all equipment, boat trips, etc., for the duration of the course.

 

Which is Koh Tao's best Divesite?

malin300x225Located between Koh Tao & Koh Phangan Sail Rock rises out of the water creating the best wall dive in the Gulf of Thailand, with a maximum depth of 40 meters. The wall is covered in soft sponges along with many oysters and clams clinging to the craggy surface. The site is best known for it's naturally formed rock 'chimney' home to hundreds of little white eyed moray eels, where you can enter an opening at 18 mtrs and ascend inside the rock with your buddy and exit at 10 mtrs. A few Meters away from the wall, schools of batfish and jacks huddle together in the slight current. Most divers come here in the hope of seeing whale sharks, or bull sharks which are frequently sighted in season, whilst the rest of the year divers swim surrounded by schools of pelagic fish patrolling the depths. Yesterday we were lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the fastest fish in the sea elusive Blue Marlin.You never know what you're going to bump into at Sail Rock which is the reason Sail Rock is not only Koh Tao's most interesting Divesite but also Koh Tao's most exciting! Come join us on our next Full Day Trip to the awesome Divesite.

A beginner guide to the top 8 most beautiful islands in Thailand

KT300x225From Phuket to Koh Samui Becki Enright of travel blog Borders of Adventure goes island-hopping.

With a cluster of islands containing emerald lagoons and secluded beaches, mountainous plains and jungle terrain, it’s not surprising that Southern Thailand tops the list as one of Southeast Asia’s best-known pathways to sun-drenched paradise.

We can't guarantee you'll find DiCaprio, but use this guide and get to know Thailand's Kohs. There are so many must-see islands scattered off the shores of this Southeast Asian hotspot, it's tricky to know where to begin and which ones to put at the top of your holiday wishlist.

To help you out, and to make sure you don't miss a thing, here's a guide to eight of Thailand's most popular islands to get you started:
To the east...
1. Koh Tao

Koh Tao has been a backpacker favourite for years. It’s not only the first accessible stop on the east island-hopping trail, but, despite a growing tourism industry, has managed to retain its natural beauty - both on land and beneath the waves. Best known for its world class diving and snorkeling, this is an island that combines a colourful underwater world with idyllic long stretches of beach and coastal hideouts. One of the biggest dive schools on the island is Big Blue, which offers full PADI training and accommodation packages. Koh Tao can be explored on foot, by moto or quad, depending on your need for speed. When the island starts to feel a little small, hire a long boat taxi to take you to Koh Nang Yuan, another tiny patch of paradise about 15 minutes sailing time from Koh Tao. Bring some baht though - Nang Yuan is a marine nature reserve so you must pay 100baht to visit.
