Blog about diving in Burma and Thailand
Another 8 days cruise, undiscovered Mergui, just ended perfectly in a taste of great bubbles, great food and as always good laughs.
Small team of 7 divers from Germany, Switzerland, France, United States and Philippines for 8 wonderful days going up north to Black Rock. The weather was good and the diving conditions almost perfect.
We had some nice encounters during this trip; one eagle ray in the secret cave, a marbled ray during the safety of a night dive, and specially two leopard sharks playing together around us for few minutes in front of our cameras.
We were lucky to spot a total of 17 different sea horses including a baby one during the whole trip ! 3 well hidden ghost pipe fishes and 11 cute frog fishes. Bunch of all different kind of shrimps, squat, boxing, durban, cleaning, marbled and the tapestry, quite a rare specimen endemic to the region.
And its not all about diving during the cruise, a minke whale was intrigued by the boat and went to welcome us around Western Rocky. But it was too shy to let us approach underwater, only teasing us with its songs during our dive.
Stay connected for our next trip and take a look on our facebook pages for all the underwater pictures.
