Weekly Diving Report – July 6th – 12th 2019

Welcome back to our latest edition of our Weekly Diving Report. We produce a weekly update on our conditions for you and publish it every Monday, so that you can get an idea on how the conditions might be during your visit. We say ‘might‘, because you know, it’s the tropics and you never know what the weather decides to do.

Before we get into the details of the previous week’s conditions, we proudly present our latest little clip:

 

Once again we had a whole variety of different dives from one-day beginner dives (also known as the PADI Discover Scuba Diving program) to more advanced programs like the PADI Wreck Diver Specialty course. Together with our Instructors and Divemasters our divers visited a lot of different, interesting dive sites, some shallower like for example Mango Bay, and some deeper, like for example the HTMS Sattakut.

 

Some of our divers were lucky enough to explore Laem Thian during their PADI Open Water Diver course. Laem Thian is a dive site located on the East side of Koh Tao and is also our adopted dive site with PADI’s Project Aware. We were pleased to record great conditions and not a lot of marine debris, as you can see in this picture:

There are quite a few artificial reef projects in the waters surrounding the island. They relieve some of the pressure on our natural reefs and create a new home for different types of marine life such as this anemone fish at Junkyard or the family of rabbit fish at Mango Bay:

Another type of artificial reef is our local ‘training wreck‘, the HTMS Sattakut. Not only does it give our divers the opportunity to explore a shipwreck, but it also builds the perfect playground and home for a variety of marine life like these two happy fellas:

Congratulations to all our newly certified divers. We hope you enjoyed your dives with us!
