Closed Circuit Re-Breather "try dive"

Last month I was lucky enough to take up the challenge of a "closed circuit re-breather" dive with Leo, a re-breather instructor who has been on the island for a few months.

The view from the top of Khao Ra

Last month Tony Hillocks took a day off from diving and opted for some land-based exploration with a climb to the top of Khao Ra, which at 627m above sea level is Koh Phangan's highest peak.

The climb is not so challenging (I opted for climbing in flip flops as I have no trainers) and only took around an hour and a half.

Stormy days do not affect the teaching team here!! PADI Enriched Air Diving course is currently running .

Well, a week of unusually bad weather has left the island in turmoil.
Regular power cuts, no fresh produce and eggs are worth the price of gold..!

On the upside, I can report that the Dive Inn has escaped the flooding, thanks to Jim and his drainage trench (dug in the pouring rain)..
