Weekly Dive Report – August 4th – 10th

Yes, it’s been a week already since our last Koh Tao Dive Site report! Time flies when you are having underwater fun!

Our resident photo guru Rob has been practicing a few new techniques lately and has produced some amazing images playing around with colour saturation. These is one of our favouites, taken on the MS Sattakut wreck. The colours really pop out, and as one of our divers commented, you sometimes have to look twice to even appreciate they are taken underwater!

This week has been a bit dreary weather wise, and unfortunately we’ve experienced more than our fair share of rain and wind. It hasn’t been wet all of the time, but when it rains here, man does it rain! The rest of the week was overcast, with some sunny spells. Despite the not so sunny conditions, the visibility underwater has remained extremely good at a range of sites though, so none the less we have still enjoyed some great dives and as usual some brilliant marine life sightings.

Aside form the Sattakut, we also visited Junkyard Reef, Twins, Japanese Gardens and Laem Thien. All of these are perfect shallow sites for PADI Open Water Diver training dives, and most have expansive sand patches, which are perfect for practicing skills.

In a break from the photo norm, Rob has spent some time this week putting together a video for you, to highlight the best of what we’ve witnessed. The wreck is looking as impressive as ever, with a thermocline at around 20m giving it an exciting and eerie feel. We hope you will enjoy all of the smaller critters we’ve spotted too. Macro photography, let alone macro videography, is a tough skill to master. So we hope you will appreciate Rob’s effots in getting some amazing close up shots of goby fish, shrimps and even a flatworm. A beautiful compilation!

We hope you enjoy the video, and see you again next week for our next report. We can guarantee more excellent images, and hopefully some clearer skies and sunshine too! Until next time, Master Divers over and out!
