We are now back on Koh Lanta after a well earned holiday. The next step for us is to prepare for the next season. After a week of planning, we have now started work on the centre.
We are building a new reception desk at the front of the building so that we can welcome our customers into the centre.
We plan to turn the area next door into a retail showroom, selling a full range of Cressi and Ocean Dynamics products.
We are adding a classroom to the rear of the building. We already had a classroom, but most of our customers wanted to sit on the pier and take in the amazing view. So, we have decided to turn the space at the rear of the building into a classroom.
We are also implementing our conservation strategy this season. We have selected a number of organizations to work with and we will collect data, carry out surveys and generally spread the conservation word!
We will use our new classroom to reach out to our customers about the work we will be doing and encouraging them to get involved. Next season, we will be offering the Project Aware PADI specialty course in Shark Awareness.
Of course, we will be still be taking scuba diving and snorkeling trips to Koh Haa, Koh Bida, Koh Phi Phi and Hin Daeng, Hin Muang. We want to be out there, searching for those whale sharks, manta rays and turtles!
