thanks for your inquiry. In the moment we are fully staffed. However, by the time you’re intending to arrive in Thailand, the summer season has started and there might be opportunities for some sailing related work. Especially since we are planning on expanding here on Koh Tao to offer dinghy sailing.
Since you are a scuba instructor as well I reckon that you will pay Koh Tao a visit and we would be happy to catch up and discuss the opportunities.
