Our new season at Scuba Junction is underway but always when a new season starts every one is a little nervous! It feels a little bit like the first day back at school, when everything is new to you.
The dive centre was thoroughly cleaned, new items purchased and things painted. The dive boat and long tail boat went away, to have their engines serviced, the minor faults repaired and both boats repainted and are now looking like the best kept boats on Koh Tao. 
These are just the material items of the dive centre but the dive staff has seen a major change as well, as is what is normal for every new season here on Koh Tao.
Our head instructor team now consists of an English man, a Scott’s man and an Irish man, so you can imagine the jokes and laughs that are always coming out with these three around. Steven, Ian and Thomas are able to teach both Padi and SSI courses and bring a wealth of experience and fun to the dive centre with never a dull moment so long as you can understand their soft accents.
The Divemaster team consists of Lana from England and Marie from Norway, too exceptional girls that love to dive and are always finding new and exciting aquatic life to show their divers on every trip. 
With a new freelance team already joining the family in our first month, with Caritha from Sweden and Mario from Austria both are Padi and SSI instructor’s, Keri and Daisy from England, Dimitri from Belgium and Julie from France, all of which are Padi instructors. You are sure to have a great experience whether you are taking a dive course, going on fun dives. Or just chilling out with a cold drink at the dive centre, watching the sun set with the crew at the end of your diving day. 
 
For the Scuba Junction family the new season is always fun and exciting with just a little nervousness to keep us all on our toes. With so many social gatherings to look forward to, with certifying dinners most evenings, our weekly BBQ returning and Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve! Now not so far away! 
So come and join us for our new season and be like so many of our previous customers and join the family, have fun while you learn in a dive location you will return to for many seasons to come.
Scuba J all the way.

Wreck diving

I am a major wreck diving fan, been wreck diving in Egypt which sparked this obsession of mine and when I moved to Koh Tao I made sure they had a wreck that I could go in, which they do.

It's called the HTMS Sattukut which was in service during World War Two, the US Navy gave it to the Thai’s, they used it for a little while then they sunk it here of the lovely island Koh Tao in 2011 for the main purpose of wreck diving.

It's a fantastic wreck and is an easy one to get you started on your wreck diving career roughly around 50m long and sits down at 30m, is fully up right, which gives it a ghostly effect as sometimes there is a thermocline, which makes it look like a ghost ship when you swim towards it from Hin Pee Wee.

One of my favourite dives is this wreck and made even better with nitrox
