Our adventures

Green Rock and White Rock on the 15th March’12

Another beautiful morning on Koh Tao with the sun shining and the sea flat. The dive sites for today were Green Rock and White Rock, and with everybody looking forward to their dives, we loaded up the boat and started the journey north to Green Rock.

 

For the first dive I would be following Evija on the last day of her Open Water Diver Course.  Arriving at the dive site, there was barely any current and the visibility was nice. We descended down the buoy line and completed the skills for the dive before heading off to explore the large pinnacle that makes up the dive site. There was plenty to see, including loads of Flatworms, some huge Triggerfish and the resident school of Juvenile Barracuda.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After a nice long dive, we returned to the boat and with everyone on board, we started the short journey to our next dive site while enjoying plenty of fresh fruit and refreshments. For the second dive I would be following Gavin, Marie, Patrick and Suzanne on the last dive of their Open Water Course. The conditions here were just as nice as they were at Green Rock so we knew we were in for a good dive.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After we had completed the skills needed to complete the course, we started out dive around the site. As always at White Rock, there was loads to see, from all the usual reef critters to Batfish, Grouper, Snapper and Triggerfish. There was a mild thermocline around 17m but the visibility above that was beautiful.

 

 

Before long, our air was starting to run low and it was time to head back to the boat, where we packed away all the equipment and made the short journey back to the shop. Both groups filled in all their log books and paperwork before sitting down to enjoy all the photos from the day.
