      Hi Quero,

      We are planning to do our open water course in thailand from 27th june. wanted to check with you if we can still dive in andman sesa during this time or should we look at gulf of thailand.
      of what i have gathered i guess andaman sea is better but it would be raining around this time . GT has better wether but not sure how good diving in KT
      we are a couple in mid 30s from india and this will be our first time so want it to be memorable.
      shall look forward to your inputs
      regards and many thanks

      Quero,
      I was given your contact by a colleague. I am going to be in Phuket for acouple of weeks, and wanted some information on the diving there. My friend, who works with me at Comex, recommended Klaus from Poseidon, but he asked me to speak (write) to you as well. What is the diving like in december ?
      Thank you

      Olá Marcia...

      Li uma postagem sua sobre a descuberta do U-513 em Santa Catarina e percebi que voce é brasileira :)
      Fiz meu OW em Phi Phi em março e nao consegui parar. Se eu imaginasse que existia uma escola brasileira em Phuket teriamos mergulhado juntas com toda certeza. Pretendo voltar e fazer um estagio de DM o ano que vem. Caso voce ofereça este tipo de prograam, entre em contato comigo para que possamos conversar.

      Abraços e otimos mergulho no paraiso.

      Valeu!

      Aproveitando a mensagem, me ofereceram um US Divers Conshelf 21 e estou procurando informações sobre ele aqui no forum, mas só acho informação gringa. Pelo que li me parece um bom regulador, só restando uma dúvida: é fácil fazer a manutenção dele aqui? Nunca vi esse regulador em lojas aqui de Brasília e fico imaginando se vou comprar uma encrenca.

      Você tem alguma idéia?

      Quero, I just joined and posted twice hoping for some guidance and info on options in Thailand. I was considering an internship in Pattaya but would like some advice as to the best routes to go and with what shop is the best. I am a US Navy Diver, USMC Combat Diver and NAUI Advanced Diver. I am interested in a new opportunities as a Dive Pro.

      I just saw your post on lonely planet to annalie. She was working at LL, when the accident happened, but i dont know if she was around at the time or not. (by my post you will see i was not actually at gapang, but it was my friend was on the boat). so she can speak with fact. however it should be noted , that ton posts references the fact i didnt contact them directly, and she is taking the same line so i kind of suspect she is being asked by Ton to make some nice remarks.

      In singpaore / thailand i do most of my diving with White Manta, and used to act as weekend crew on the boat.

      Marjan and i are now taking our discussion off line, and they now seem to be taking some notice of what has been stated. so i will lcose out the SB thread soon

      Hello Quero!

      I always enjoy your helpful posts! My husband and I are coming to Phuket in late june of this year. We made an inquiry to you regarding prices for diving about a week ago but never heard back. Do you have a price list for dives, maybe 2 or 3 days of 2-3 dives a day?

      Thanks so much
      Pamela
