Amazing how time is flying, seems we started this season few weeks ago but we are going out to our trip number 12 already. That happens when you enjoy what you are doing, and that energy together with the one our costumers are bringing on board every single trip is making this season really remarkable.

This one was plenty of surprises from the very beginning, with a new Frogfish at West of Eden and 3 Ribbon Eels at our third dive, Deep Six, where few groups spotted White Tip Reef Sharks and Turtles too. But were not the only ones the first day, after our beach time to enjoy the sunset at Honeymoon/Princess Bay we did our only night dive at Honeymoon Bay, where the star was without any doubt a juvenile Cookatoo Waspfish, so cute!!!


Now just dinner and few chatting time before our costumers crashed into their beds, good night!

Good morning!!!, second day and we got another dive left at Similan Islands archipelago, Elephant Head Rock, where we founded again the Seamoths, barracudas, Kulh´s Stingrays, octopus, Egg cowrie, Porcelaine crabs......such a great place always, doesn´t really matter if you are spotting interesting things over there, just the landscape is making whort a visit to this place.


After this one we headed north to Koh Bon, like always we dove at the West Ridge, where few groups spotted a Leopard Shark sleeping next to the ridge a black Ribbon Eel and few Napoleon Wrasses.

Third and last dive at Koh Tachai, The Dome, where right at the beginning 2 Mantas appeared to welcome us to this amazing place, going back and forth the whole dive together with 2 huge Cobias, hard to say something else about this one where all the rest of local suspects loose interest having this two guys around giving us such a stunning show.



In sunset the mantas were not there anymore, but the school of barracudas and a eagle ray delight the groups together with the frenzy of Tunas and Trevallies hunting above the pinnacle.

In the third day we did 3 dives at Richelieu Rock, and yes!!!!, seahorse!!!!!, a juvenile Tigertail Seahorse became the star of the day, not forgetting of course the Bentstick Pipefish, Ornate Ghostpipefish, Cuttlefishes, octopuses, Devil scorpionfish, Morey Eels....etc.



After our second sunset dive we came back to Koh Bon to spend the night to jump the next day at Hin Luang, where again the Stonefish was waiting for us at the top, i have to say is the most beautiful one i ever seen, White/Yellowish and Pink. 

Boonsung Wreck again demostrate to be the best way to end up this trip, with such amount of life living together among the wreck pieces, 2 Ornate Ghostpipefish, Rays, pipefish, spearing mantis shrimps, cuttlefish, nudibranch, Honeycomb Morey eels.


Congratulations to our fresh Advanced Open Water divers, Jussi, Kirsi, Sam, Bas, Natalia, Dimitry, you did a great job, and thanks to all of you for making this great trip more than remarkable, hope to see you again.
