Even though the shop specialises in tech courses, I was happy to find out that the team also arranges open water dive courses. This suited me well since my partner is an experienced tech-diver, whereas I had no prior experience in diving and wanted to learn the basics. The training was one-on-one, progressed at my pace and the course was well organised. As an added bonus, they had arranged Finnish-speaking dive instructor to make the learning process just that one bit easier.
I also got to try my new skills on a separate fresh water dive at Song Hong lake which gave a sneak peek into cavern diving.
