Weekly Diving Report – April 6th-12th

Last week we celebrated the Thai New Year, also known as Songkran. This festival is usually celebrated with huge water fights all over Thailand which is a welcome refresher in the hottest time of the year.

If you read our Weekly Diving Reports on a regular basis, you’ll know by now that we’re always in need for a nice little cool down, and for all the other 364 days of the year, when we can’t have a water fight, we simply go for a dive.

Even better when the conditions are as pretty as they have been lately:

 

During this week, we took our PADI Advanced Open Water Diver students to some stunning dives at Chumphon Pinnacle or Green Rock. But not only our student divers enjoyed great conditions, our fun divers were equally as excited about the dives at other spots like Red Rock or White Rock, just to name a few.

While lionfish used to be quite rare on Koh Tao, we can now see them on a regular basis on the deeper sites such as Chumphon:

These pretty little guys aside, the visibility has been stunning and you can see the whole of Barracuda Rock, even from the distance:

Our divers (and our photographer Dan) were lucky enough to dive  with this little guy and that must be our favourite shot of the week! who doesn’t love turtles???

Great to see that our reefs are looking healthy at the moment. This staghorn coral provides a perfect hiding spot for a big variety of juvenile reef fish:

We look forward to another week of great diving and hope to see you back again next Monday for our next update on our diving conditions!
