The first underwater footage using my Go-Pro, filmed just off the coast of Thailand on Koh Tao island
Koh Tao (Turtle Island) is probably the cheapest place in the world to get SCUBA certified, with dive shops dotted all along the island. An overnight train from Bangkok to Surat Thani and a two hour ferry ride in the early morning will get you to it’s azure shore, from which you can immediately immerse yourself into some of the clearest, most diversely populated water this side of the Pacific.
Many thanks to Phoenix Divers for an unforgettable experience, as well as to an array of amazing individuals I met doing my Open Water course. I highly recommend finding and booking your course at Phoenix Divers.
