Our adventures

Japanese Gardens on the 12th March’12


Today was another beautiful day on Koh Tao. The sun was shining and the sea completely flat. We loaded up the boat with all our gear and made the journey out to Japanese Gardens were we would be diving for the morning.For the first dive I would be following Stein during his Open Water Diver Course. His wife Hilde was feeling sick and unfortunately couldn’t make it, but Stein was exited about finished the course and getting certified as an Open Water Diver. We jumped in and headed south out of the bay in search of 18m, swimming through the stunning coral formations and abundance of fish that make this dive site famous.

The dive went well and we saw a huge amount of life including some tiny orange Flatworms, some huge triggerfish, a Seal Faced Puffer fish as well as all the usual critters.

Unfortunately, the air in your tank can only last so long and we were soon ready to get back on the boat and enjoy the sunshine, fresh Pineapple and refreshments available on the boat before the second dive. For this second dive I would be following Corey and Jenya on their Open Water Diver Course. Corey was a few days in to the course and Jenya had just joined having had to pull out of her last course early due to an ear infection.We once again headed outside the bay and to the south, were we spent a nice long dive exploring the dive site. Once again we saw some beautiful Flatworms, more Triggerfish and even the resident Juvenile Harlequin Sweetlips.

After a great morning of diving, we started up the engines and headed back to the shop, were after a little gear rinsing and logbook signing, we were free to take a look at all the pictures from the day up on the big screen in the shop.
