Our guests arrived around 16:00, we got all the gear sorted out, did our welcome briefing, dinner and a small party between long lasting friends.
Sunday 26th April 2015
We started with a great check dive at Koh Haa where the sandy area hide many interesting marine life such as sea moth, devil scorpion fish, flounders and many shrimp goby. Our day carried on towards Hin Daeng and Hin Muang where large schools of fusiliers, yellow snapper and two dot snappers covered the reef and we also saw many tunas, moray eels and of course, a beautiful manta ray.
Monday 27th April 2015
After a six hour cruise, we arrived at Tarutao National Park, a breathtaking group of islands and great diving. Visibility was great and we saw a variety of small and larger creatures. Many species of nudibranch such as chromodoris anulata, blue dragon, flabellina and chomodoris Geminus were found everywhere as well as large schools of barracudas and giant trevallies, dozens of morays including the honeycomb moray eel.
Tuesday 28th April 2015
We sailed back to Hin Daeng and Hin Muang (Red and Purple Rock) where you can never have enough of those two beautiful pinnacles, covered with soft corals and sea fans. We had a little current in the morning, just enough to bring the fish life to very high activity. Thousands of Glass fish tried their hardest to keep up with the tunas, jacks, trevallies and barracudas which were trying to have lunch. We also had many morays and as usual, beautiful manta rays swimming by us.
Wednesday 29th April 2015
We have arrived at Koh Haa and what an incredible day we had. Visibility was above 30 meters and with very light currents, just enough to bring us a lot of action and still be a very easy dive. We did many different types of dives Koh Haa has to offer, from walls to Canyons and Caverns to swim throughs. The variety of nudis that can be found in this area is just amazing on top of the beautiful soft corals, sea fans, moray eels and thousands of sweepers at any cavern, canyon or swim through we ventured ourselves in.

Its Koh Phi Phi time!!! What a breathtaking topography these massive rocks have, giving a great impression to all our divers. We did some great diving today, starting at Bida Nok and Bid Nai where we saw a leopard shark, just relaxing on the sandy bottom. We also saw many mantis shrimp, nudis, morays, blue spotted sting ray and many different species of shrimps. We went to Maya Bay area in the afternoon, where they filmed the movie “The beach” with Leonard de Caprio. We saw turtles, jacks, trevallies and hundreds of fusiliers.
Friday 01st May 2015
We had an awesome day at Phuket area. As usual, first dive in the morning at King Cruiser wreck, a ferry boat where thousands of juvenile barracudas and yellow snappers would not allow you to see 5 meters ahead of you. The day went on with sea horses, nudis, barracudas, turtles, schooling squids and many moray eels. What a great last day.
