Richelieu Was Rockin'!!!


 Author: | View 19602

  I'm going to write this blog differently than the usual way that I put them together. Instead of a play-by-play of each dive in order, I'm going to start with Richelieu Rock and then Tachai. Richelieu was so good this trip, it's a bit hard to explain it here. Let me just say this. One one dive there, we saw all of the following: Juvenile Tigertail Seahorse Ornate Ghost P...

MQ2, Back Again From Another Fantastic Voyage!


 Author: | View 19603

  On this North Andaman Sea trip that we run here at Khao Lak Scuba Adventures, all of the dive sites are fairly diverse. Sometimes the conditions are as well. Although the giving was nice at all the sites this time, the stand-out had to be Richelieu Rock. With clear blue water and very little current, it was by far the best diving on this trip. More on this later. We started as...
