An extraordinary cruise with more than 15 dives on Richelieu Rock = happy underwater photographers :)
Franck has been out of the water for a few weeks due to an ear infection and we didn't share many news lately... Here is our latest Trip report, a cruise from 8th to 11th of March 2022 particularly designed to satisfy the most demanding underwater photographers.
In order to maximise the photo productions, we planned more than 3 full days on Richelieu Rock to see and photograph the wonder of Thailand's best dive site.
The cruise started wonderfully from Tap Lamu pier from where we set sail with an exceptional sunset on the Andaman sea.
After a quick briefing about the organisation onboard, we made acquaintance with everyone over a lovely diner.
Excitation was there for everyone eager to wake up and discover the aquatic wonders of the Surin islands...
What was exceptional on this trip was to spend so much time on Richelieu rock, where for once, we were able to explore every cracks and corner! It is often frustrating to leave the Rock after only 3 or 4 dives, on this trip we left with plenty of nice photos after 15 dives!!!
We met many wonderful species, each one more beautiful than the next.

Always eager to explore further afield and try new things, we cruised west to conduct our blackwater dives at the edge of the continental plateau, were seafloor drops from 80m deep to severals hundreds meters!
What an awesome feeling and great larvae population! Our Blackwater dive there was fantastic so we will do it again!
