During our days of exhibition in Bangkok, in March 2013, we had a contest were the winner won 2 days of diving, flights, transport and accommodation for 2 people. This weekend the proud winners finally arrived ready for 2 days of adventure.
Sadly the weather wasn’t the best on their first day – but hey, diving is always good – you´ll get wet anyway!
On our first day, we had an adventurous trip, out to the Ao Nang islands in a private boat. From Klong Haeng Pier we loaded everything on and cruised off. We had time to enjoy the view, set up the equipment and do a dive briefing. We moved for our dive on Koh Talu, which is one of the most popular dive sites here. We had the whole dive site to ourselves, and had a very nice dive with lots of beautiful corals and lots of marine life; there were stingrays, triggerfish, razorfish and a lot more. The perfect start for a “dive adventure”.
The second day was a relaxing cruise out to the world famous Phi Phi Islands on our big dive boat Petchmanee. The time out was used for setting up our equipment and to enjoy the beautiful scenery of the giant limestone cliffs and socialize with the other guests. The first dive was at Viking Bay, as we arrived we jumped in the water to blow some bubbles… It was a fantastic dive where we have seen moray eels, huge porcupinefish and even a leopard shark!! After the dive we had a lunch break, and second dive was at Phi Ley Wall. Here we dived along the wall for another beautiful dive, featuring all the colors of the rain bow in form of Gorgonians and other soft corals. We spotted Scorpion fish, several different species of clown fish, cleaner shrimps and more of their friends.
To make it short; 2 wonderful days of diving!!!
We want to thank Joseph and Maria for their visit and hope to see them and their friends again.
