Rain was falling on Ranong when we reached the boat, but the sky cleared as soon as we got away from main land...
This was a special dolphin trip as we got two pods of dolphins giving us a show. On the first sunset, dolphins appeared in the distance right under a rainbow, a truly magical moment and we were surprised to get to experience an even more incredible moment when 40 dolphins accompanied the boat for a good 30 minutes on our way to Koh Tachai. We saw babies close to their mums playing in the wake of the boat and visibility was so clear we could see them right under the surface as if we were part of the same world!!!
A few return guests as well as teachers on holidays, that’s all it takes to create good vibes ;)
Congrats to Petra, Maurice, Julien and Dominic who completed their Enriched Air Nitrox certification, to Alek who completed the Adventure deep and night dive and to Erin (10 years old) and (Tintin, 12 years old) who enjoyed the cruise like pros and learned new technics to dive in current when needed with minimal efforts.
Another group got lucky spotting napoleon fish, hump head parrot fish and a guitarfish at night.
The reef was absolutely stunning, teeming with life from the millions of glassfish and the squads of predator darting at them, making it look like a wave constantly moving!
Jacks, barracuda and this very friendly Titan triggerfish ;)
We were very pleased with the water quality, so clear with almost no particles ! Baby ribbon eels were everywhere! Absolutely mind blowing !
We also spotted some surgeon fish larvae, shinny little crabs, minuscule krill and this baby needle fish at the end of the dive posing for me below the surface…
Myriads of glassfish carpeted the entire reef!
The concentration of marine life is exceptional, from the tiniest tiger egg cowrie to the biggest school of giant trevallies constantly circling the rock crossing path with barracudas, longnose emperor fish and jacks.
I can’t wait to get wet again! For those out of Thailand, have you heard that Thailand has finally reopened to international travelers? Only 1 test, 1 night and you’re free to enjoy this yourself. What are you waiting for? ;)
