Well, I can honestly say this was a fantastic idea and I am so glad that we chose to do so with Scuba Junction. Scuba Junction isn’t the cheapest on the island but as far as we’re concerned you cannot put a price on safety. (And they are worth every penny!) As complete novices we started from the very beginning in a classroom format where for the first day we watched a PADI film to teach us the core essentials when it comes to diving. The lessons were then put into practise in the pool by our instructor Chips. (After an equipment orientation). Chips is a fantastic teacher!!!! As I was relatively nervous he eased my nerves and before I knew it all of my worries had gone. (And I was really enjoying it). Chips is an oracle of diving knowledge. He kept our lessons fun whilst teaching us so much. The lessons were over 4 days and were made up of 6 people: Chips - instructor Myself My husband Our new friend and fellow student And 2 training instructors for their own learning and our further support. We noticed that other (cheaper) diving schools had a high volumes of people during dives. But we felt lucky we had so much support. After practising our newly taught skills in the pool we graduated to our first ocean dive. Naturally, I became a bit nervous again as in a pool you can hold on to the side or get out of the water. But again, Chips listened, appreciated my apprehensions, calmed me down and got me through it. Again, as soon as I was in the ocean I forgot about my worries and was having a great time looking at all of the amazing fish and corals. Before I knew it I was on my final dive and filled with excitement. Initially learning to dive was something my husband wanted to do. But now I can hand on heart say how pleased I am that I joined him in learning. We can now explore the ocean together (up to 18m) and say it is the first achievement we did as a married couple. Without the patience, knowledge and support of Chips I would have given up. But he gave me the reassurances I needed, stayed with me during the dives (so I felt comfortable at all times) and by the end of it I felt really confident. Thank you to all the team at Scuba Junction. We really enjoyed our time with you all. (Not a bad little spot to learn at either) </div> </div><!--/.gpr-review --> <div class="gpr-review gpr-review-3"> <div class="gpr-review-header gpr-clearfix"> <div class="gpr-review-avatar"> <img class="lazyload" data-src="https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-HcaGaTcQ_u4/AAAAAAAAAAI/AAAAAAAAAAA/ACHi3reNTfxESssm8kdlUCnSjX6zHPq_0w/s128-c0x00000000-cc-rp-mo-ba2/photo.jpg?sz=100" alt="Martina Ampio" title="Martina Ampio"/> </div> <div class="gpr-review-info gpr-clearfix"> <span class="grp-reviewer-name"> <a href="https://www.google.com/maps/contrib/107140928663720299610/reviews" title="View this profile." ><span>Martina Ampio</span></a> </span> <div class="star-rating-wrap"><div class="star-rating-size" style="width:65px;"></div></div><p class="gpr-rating-value" ><span>5</span>out of 5 stars</p><span class="gpr-rating-time"> posted 2 weeks ago</span> </div> </div> <div class="gpr-review-content"> If you want to get your Padi certification you must choose Scuba Junction!

My first taste of the Koh Tao diving scene was coming here to do my Dive Master, before this I was back in England in the small town of Windsor working everyday thinking I would never leave, doing diving holidays to other parts of Thailand and Egypt every year and all it took was  a single conversation with a Dive Master about the journey to achieving this prestigious position in PADI and at that moment my mind was made up. I was becoming a Dive Master someone mentioned Koh Tao to me and after doing some research I booked my ticket and was on my way over the first few days walking along the beach at night watching the sunset, diving everyday seeing the most amazing fish and beautiful coral anywhere in Thailand, learning to become a leader and gaining a new confidence I didn’t know I had, and making friends for life. Koh Tao really was the place to be and now two years and many visits later to the island I have since become a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer, gained a better insight into the island and exploring more of it meaning I can help people who visit even more and I now have my dream job at this brilliant dive school surrounded by amazing divers who I learn from everyday and have a life I wouldn’t change for a thing. If becoming a Dive Master and coming to Koh Tao can do all that for me imagine what it can do for you? Go ahead make your passion your career and live your dream. HAPPY DIVING !!!!!! sam
