Dive 2 Koh Bon North Ridge
Dropping down into the crystalline water for the second dive we arrived at 29 meters to be greeted by several groupers among the coral garden and bomies in this area, drifting with current we finish on the ridge where we shared our safety stop with a manta.....,
Dive 3 Koh Tachai
The usual current greeted us on Tachai running strong with the trevallys making a mockery of our attempts to keep up with them, two juvenile angel fish and a fish I am still trying to id with a couple of groupers.
22 meter and 50 mins
Tachai again current still running and a green monster cold and dark sat with us on the dome
18 m 40 mins
Dive 4 Tachai revisited
The green cloud persisted on the dome , visible from the surface looking like a smog cloud over Bangkok but the dive was still spectacular with the resident trevallys groupers and barracudas
Richelieu dives 6 7 8
We can see why this dive site is in the worlds top ten
3 dives here are not enough to take in everything around you
Back to Koh Bon ridge and pinnacle Hin Luang
Dive 9 on the pinnacle with a ripping current ..... Awesome dive with a large bloctched fantail ray and manta ray , then like some one had flicked a switch the current stopped so we could find stewie the stone fish on top of the pinnacle in 20 meters
Boonsung dive 10
20 meters 50 mins 29 degrees 15 meter viz
Plenty of puffer fish , white eyed and honey comb moray spearing mantis shrimps and beautiful nudis
A great finish to a great trip
Thanks to you all for coming on Manta Queen VI
