Our adventures

TaoThong and Junkyard on the 24th Feb’12

Todays dive sites we Tao Tong and Junkyard. For the first dive I would be following Alesha doing her Discover Scuba Diving experience and her boyfriend James coming along for a fun dive. 

The weather was beautiful and the sea completely flat. We made our way around the island to the dive site and after her briefing and a few skills in the shallows, it was time to swim off and explore the reef. The dive was great with Parrotfish everywhere as well as a huge puffer fish and tons of Nudibrnachs. Alesha was a complete natural, even hovering perfectly to pose for the camera.

For the second dive I would be following another group, this time Manuel and Natasha who were half way through their Open Water Diver course. We headed back in the direction of the shop to jump in for our second dive at Junkyard. This is a completely manmade dive site made of all the ‘junk’ that has attracted a huge amount of life. Today didn’t disappoint, the water was the clearest I had ever seen it. During the dive we came across the resident school of Batfish, a huge Puffer fish and even some anemone fish wafting their eggs next to their anemone home.

We all returned back to the shop with big grins on our faces after such a lovely morning and after they had all finished filling in log book and so on, we had the chance to sit down and take a look through all of the photos from the day.
