Caroline and her team are brilliant! I decided to do my Advanced Open Water very last min however Caroline was accommodating. The diving itself was out of this world! Great visibility, brilliant colors, favorable water temps and first-rate sea life! I was a tad anxious before my deep dive which nearly caused me to give up however Caroline took time to talk through the situation and we ended up diving shortly after and had a fantastic time! The night dive would be my favorite! Overall, it was an unforgettable experience! I felt welcomed from start to finish and now I feel like I have a community that I belong to anytime I decide to come back to Phi Phi.
