Since it turns that Koh Tao is the world’s biggest factory for turning out diving certifications and therefore has the world’s lowest prices due to competition, I decided to go ahead and earn my advanced open water license. Success!
Here are a few photos of the diving scene here. I have lots of underwater HD video that I need to sort and edit, which will be in another post.
