During my second vacation to lovely Koh Samui, I again joined Easy Divers for a few dive trips. It was one more time an outstanding experience.
It all was well organized, the driver was very friendly and on time, the boat ride relaxing with a nice breakfast, plenty of time to sunbathe on the sun deck, read my book and enjoy the wonderful view when passing Koh Phangan. On the tour with three dives I had the chance to see one of the most beautiful sunsets ever - and got great photos of it.
I dived with Oo, Pauline and Toddy, all of the amazing dive guides - friendly, helpful, fun and always there to give a hand. They really adapt on each divers needs - I felt perfectly comfortable on each dive. And I was very lucky - at Sail Rock I saw a whale shark for the first time. Colin, the photographer took some breathtaking shots - what a great day!
This time I also did one tour with another dive operator using a speed boat, since I wanted to dive Chumpon Pinnacle - a great dive site, but the trip was terrible. The boat was shared by several other dive shops and it was very crowded. The sea conditions were very rough, so there was no chance of walking around on the boat or even use the toilet - so I ended up like a fish in the can. Kitting up was difficult, as there was not much space. I found it extremely hard to enter the water with full equipment and also struggled to get back out. On the way back again heavy waves, no chance to chat with my dive buddies due to the fact that the boat was very noisy.
So I will again return to the Seastar, a wonderful boat with lots of space - also on the dive deck for kitting up, a comfortable ladder to get back on board, a proper toilet, plenty of time to socialize with the dive buddies making friends. The trips take a bit longer, but for me it's time well spend - and during my holiday I don't need to rush ;)
See you again latest next year, Easy Divers - you are the best!! And Koh Samui is just my perfect holiday destination.
