Blue spotted sting ray at Shark Island
Conditions were excellent, above and under the waterline! It was cloudy so not too warm
and the visibility was around 20 meters! Great diving conditions indeed.
A grouper at Shark Island
Both our dives were really enjoyable, first of all because of the nice conditions and secondly by the leisurely pace of our dives and the multitude of fish we encountered.
Christmas Trees at Shark Island
Today we were on a speedboat and due to the nice surface conditions, a flat ocean all the way from Samui
to Koh Tao
, we were back home by 2am! A really good time, considering we went all the way to Koh Tao.
Jenkins Whip Ray at Ao leuk
One of the high lights of the day was spotting this Jenkins Whip Ray, you don't meet too many around here and the nice thing was that this guy was not camera shy at all!
Healthy stag horn coral at Ao leuk
To finish it off, a picture of some healthy had coral, stag horn, around Ao leuk. Other parts in Thailand, especially around the Similan Islands
, a lot of the hard coral has some serious damage due to coral bleaching
. It was good to see that the coral around Koh Ta
o in general is in very good shape, especially the hard coral recovered very well from approximately one year ago.
A nice days diving and I'm looking forward to my next dive adventure, the IDC
