It’s Padi Courses time on Koh Phangan, July 15th.

Suddenly lots of people want to start their Padi beginners diving courses. We actually have 7 Open Water students currently in training (with 3 instructors, of course!) which is great news for the dive centre, after a month or so of mainly taking certified divers on diving trips or conducting Discover Scuba Diving. Of course we are still fun diving; Sail Rock is fine, as you can see from the photo, as is Koh Tao, and we’re waiting for a wind change to clear the visibility at the Marine Park… All’s good at the dive shop in Chaloklum and everyone is working reasonably hard....

Congratulations to Fernando, the dive shop’s latest Padi Open Water Diver certification; big...

Great Diving Trip to Samran Pinnacles, April 2012.

Well, it came together at last & we made a diving trip to Samran Pinnacles yesterday. After some fun finding the pinnacles we enjoyed 2 leisurely dives with great conditions on a favourite dive site. It was a special day for the macro team too, with some fine nudibranch found & duly photographed; photos are up on facebook already! We then moved to a quiet Sail Rock with only 2 small dive boats left & had a nice, peaceful 3rd dive with good conditions. Who could ask for more? Our next special should be to the Marine Park v. soon… It’s nice to have a few of our friends...

Photographed both when diving and snorkelling at Mae Haad Reef, Koh Phangan. We thought that this was a juvenile at first, but it looks like it’s a smaller species of giant clam that bores into the...
