I haven't dived in awhile and my friend is a non-diver keen to try the discovery scuba diving so on a recent trip to Koh Samui we decided to go diving with CSI since he's the best reviewed dive company on tripadvisor. Paul was indeed a funny fellow who has a knack of making you feel comfortable. He came to the hotel to meet with us pre-dive to have a short chat, sign the indemnity forms and to check our sizes for the equipment. On the dive day itself, Paul was punctual and came to pick us up from the hotel in his truck. There were other dive companies on the same boat like discovery dive centre etc and it was good to see that they all seemed to genuinely get along well and there was alot of joking around on the boat. The smoking bothered me abit cos I was a little sea sick but other than that it was okay. We first went to mango bay for a shore dive so my friend can familiarize herself abit. Paul walked her through most of the basics though she told me later that she wasn't sure if water was supposed to come into the nose part of her mask and she wasn't briefed on that so she was abit nervous throughout the first dive. Back on the boat there was curry chicken and stir fried veges for lunch. There was free flow of ice cold water and sodas as well. 2nd dive we saw more marine life and my friend was more comfortable by then and enjoyed her dive abit more. Paul took quite a few photos but these photos are chargeable at a 1000 baht which I thought was abit expensive so decided against it. Everything wrapped up smoothly and I was impressed with how we didn't have to lift a finger to help with the equipment and everything was handled professionally and swiftly. Special shout out to the boat crew who were friendly and helpful. Even helped me put on my fins! Never had a dive where someone helped me with my fins. Thanks, CSI Samui. :)
