We just came back from our first thai trip, and it was absolutely great ! We had a lovely group of both french and german divers on board, laid back atmosphere, loads of laughs and good times !
But some of us also had some serious studying going on. We want to welcome Myri in the diving community : she passed her Open Water with flying colors, and is already incredibly at ease underwater. Meanwhile, her friends took the opportunity to continue their education. Anna, Angie, Sebastian and Cosi are now Advanced Open Water ! And good ones at that, you should see them navigate squares with a compass in hand... Congratulations to you all !!
A little video from our dives: barracudas and batfish are around :)

26th of December, the weather doesn’t allow us to go all the way to Koh Bon, so we decide to go to Richelieu Rock. Although the dive site is amazing, we still have the mantas in our minds…
The rock is coverd by redish soft corals, Huge school of yellow fusiliers make it fun to swimm through them, barracudas cruising around and giant trevalis hunting in the blue, very nice.
Lower down there are 3 cuttle fish fighting for 1 female it’s mating time…
29th of December, we are back to Burma, which I particularely like because (but not only) we are always alone on every dive site!
25th of December, Christmas day… I wish to get some Mantas for this upcoming dive! We go to Koh Tachai pinnacle. That’s a cleaning station very famous for Mantas sighting, let’s keep our fingers crossed…
As soon as we hit the water, they are there! Finally, that’s the first time of the season that we see them… 2 of them are flying around us passing by again and again, There are so many fish to look at but we can’t get our eyes off the mantas, they are so gracious and so big absolutely fantastic. When the time is up we head towards the mooring line but we don’t want to get out of the water as long as we still have a bit of air in our tanks, we keep staring at them, and as if they felt flattered they come around us just so we can enjoy the show a little bit longer… What a dive!
