Well, it was our third visit back to Phuket and I'd been looking forward to doing some more diving again this year. The first choice based on previous experience was Andy. Amongst our schedule of things that we had planned to do I managed to squeeze 2 days of diving into the holiday. Also this time as my wife does not dive she had decide to come along on one of the days so that she could enjoy some snorkeling and see the beautiful islands and scenery (well worth it if there are some non divers in your party).
The diving was above and beyond expectations! Andy put himself at my disposal and did everything possble to ensure that the whole experience was first class from the moment I arrived at the quayside. Over the 2 days we did 6 dives and on each dive Andy did a very informative briefing(these are brilliant) and ensured that I had the maximum quality experience on each. His knowledge and experience around each site is second to none together with the ability to spot and point out the many varied species of sea life is outstanding.
For me personally I had one of, if not the most memorable experience on one of the dives. We encountered a Leopard Shark and I managed to get extremely close to it (within 1/2 a metre). This alone was worth the whole trip to Thailand! ! !
So, for anyone reading this then you will not find a better quality diving experience and diving with Andy is not to be missed ( and buy some photographs off him they are outstanding)
I'm an experienced UK diver and PADI Instructor myself, so I've got a reasonably good idea of what should happen when diving and I always take a decided and professional interest in other Instructors whenever I'm diving. Andy certainly excells himself and stands out. In fact I would say that Andy demonstrates a level of enthusiasm and professionalism and sets an example that any instructor should strive to achieve. A credit to yourself and the PADI organisation.
Andy you're a star and I cant wait to be back in the water with you.
