|Yesterday Sailor Tom became Diver Tom.|
Phuket is loaded with dive companies (and dive sites of course) and the deal they offer is too good not to take up a PADI dive course.
After 1 day in the classroom and the swimming pool off he went on board one of the dive boats to do his first open water dives. Nice to listen to his stories..reminds us of our own first dives somehow. However we did our training in freeeezing Holland!
Meanwhile Alishan was relocated to Ao Chalong (east coast) due to an un-comfy swell at the west coast of Phuket.
From here the plan is to sail into the Phang Nga Bay (NE of here) and explore the beautiful islands there.
