Our adventures

Japanese Gardens and Twins on the 9th March’12 AM

This morning we had a mixed group of divers and activities on our boat: Open Water Course, Rescue Course, Instructor training and Discover Scuba Diving.

We met early in the morning at our dive centre to get our equipment ready and have a cup of coffee before heading out to Japanese Garden and Twins.The sea was calm and it was a nice sunny morning.

Danny was listening upstairs on the sundeck to the briefing about his first dive, while Kento had to practice rescuing two tired snorkelers and Scott and Jens just finished off their buddy check to enter the water.

The visibility at our first dive site Japanese Gardens was great (15-20 metres) and the water temperature a comfortable 28 C.

I was following Danny, who after finishing a few skills in shallow water on the beach enjoyed his first dive and the beautiful coral in the shallow bay of Koh Nangyuan. There was loads of different things to see: needlefish, bannerfish, butterflyfish, skunk anemonefish, a school of barracudas etc.

After our surface interval on the boat we jumped back in for our second dive on Twins. We could already see from the surface that the visibility was great (20m). You could easily see the deeper pinnacle from the shallow one, which made the navigation very easy. While we were swimming around the coral heads and cruising over the sand we saw a titan triggerfish, loads of seaslugs, blue spotted stingray and the saddleback anemonefish amongst loads of other fish.

Everyone enjoyed the morning trip and while packing our equipment and relaxing in the sun we slowly headed back to Mae Haad.
