Festive Frolics and Fraternizing with Fishes (Whale Shark, Grey Reef Shark and Barracudas Galore) MQIII 27/12/13-31/12/13


 Author: | View 23191

  Next day and first dive was at Koh Tachai again with high expectations for what we might see. The shark was still hanging around and so were the barracuda. The visibility was amazing, and we could hardly believe it when literally out of the blue a few groups were lucky enough to see a little whale shark! A truly amazing sight; he was about 3.5-4 meters long for a fish that grows up to 10...

    Second day, and after our first dive at North Point to visit the Massive Sea Fans a Barrel Sponges of the Outer Pinnacle we headed north to Koh Bon, where seems the clouds of glassfish are getting bigger and bigger over there, is a marvelous show when the BlueFin Trevallies are hunting in organised squadrons among them. Above the ridge were Hundreds of Rainbow Runners and we enjo...

Mother Nature 101 on Manta Queen 2 Trip #116


 Author: | View 19639

  Our trip on Manta Queen 2 started just like any other, with only small waves and minimal currents on the West Ridge of Koh Bon. We made two dives there, finding spearing Mantis Shrimp and this really cool octopus. It was not shy and let us get really close. Perfect for photos! We headed up toward Koh Tachai and the waves began to get a little larger. We did make two amazing dives ...

  For those of us from the southern hemisphere its always been normal to sing about frosty the snow man and sleigh bells jingling with the sun beating down and playing outside. With many family and friends coming out to enjoy something new this year it was a great atmosphere on the boat although we did have to can the christmas music around mid day as there is only so many silent night...

MQ2 Christmas Trip!!!


 Author: | View 19392

  We started  off at Koh Bon, and I must say, there is nothing quite like that first giant stride entry of the trip... After a few dives and a very entertaining octopus we moved North to Koh Tachai. A few of us did the night dive, but most opted for a sunset dive on Tachai Pinnacle instead. Tournedos out to be a good choice, with huge schools of Chevron Barracuda circling...

Manta Queen Trip #111

  With some 'challenging' currents popping up at Elephant Head Rock and Christmas Point we thought we could sit back and enjoy the next couple of dives, but arriving at Koh Bon on day 2 we were slightly wrong. With a raging current and some washing machine conditions coming across the West Ridge groups were flying down the wall in record time and wiping past the ridge to the coral garden...

Manta Queen I trip # 13

  First dive of the trip, Annita's Reef. I still cant believe what we saw in that dive. Submerged in the waters around 24m, suddently an spectacular manta ray passing over, around 5m deep. In these two season here I haven't seen any manta rays in Annita's Reef, so my state of shock last the whole day long. So if starting the trip, we see a manta ray, what else is gonna happen to us latt...

  There was a big feeding frenzy on the second dive, with thousands of tiny glass fish working hard to avoid the hungry mouths of a gang of hunters that included Checkerboard Wrasse, Emperor fish, Slate Sweetlips, Trevally, Grouper and even a few Rainbow Runners. It was really great to see, cool for everyone, except maybe the glass fish! The dives at Tachai Pinnacle were so be...

    Elephant head rock was a calming dive this trip with zero current and 30m visibility was amazing to swim aronf the mammoth site with its huge boulders and swim throughs. Turning a corner and you get the pleasure of the 'wind up toy' like creature which is the sea moth or little dragon... They seriously look as they belong in the bath tub with the kids.......not at 26m on a mass...

  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 Co...

  Island 7 gave us our first Sea Moth which is always a crowd pleaser as how can little animal that looks like a squished bird or a wind up toy you used to play with in the bath, one, be so damned hard to see, two, not get blowen away in the currents. ah. the magic.   Octopus are always a favourite and Elephant Head Rock brought smiles to our diles with large octopus out...
