Day 30 - July 13.: This day we had two dives planned. Open Water dive one and two.
The first dive was at "Japanese Gardens" and we didn't practise any new skills here. The whole point with the dive was to get acquainted diving in deeper water and to enjoy ourselves. We went down to 11 meters and stayed there for 43 minutes.
Between the dives we spent the time on the roof of the refitted fishing boat. Sitting on the roof of the boat, relaxing in the sun is really quite nice. We even saw flying fish a couple of times.
Second dive was also at "Japanese Gardens" and this time we spent much of the time praktising different skills like regulator recovery, partial and fully flooded mask, alternate air source etc. We steyed under for 42 minutes and maksimum depth was 9 meters.
Well back on the island we spent the time exploring the little city and we also tried out this excellent Mexican food restaurant. Here we ate Chimichangas (deep fried burritos). Strange that you have to go to Thailand to try out new tex-mex
