Blog about diving in Burma and Thailand
This trip in Burma has clearly marked the return of the tiny ! We had been waiting for them little creatures since the season started, and this time, they were all here : hide-and-seek-champion ghostpipefish, elusive pineapple fish, carnival dressed harlequin shrimps, camouflage master orang outan crab... Torches in hand, eyes wide open, looking into every crack and hole, the treasure hunt has been a fructuous one !
The big animal lovers were not forgotten, since the huge but peaceful nurse sharks and impressive blotch stingrays were also at the rendez-vous.
To help us in the search, ten curious divers came along, and took the trip on MV Thai Sea all the way to Black Rock. They even agreed to take part in the discovery of new dive spots, and we could spend a full day exploring unknown sites !
Let's not forget to congratulate the brave ones who spent some time bent on their books... alright, sunbathing with a book in hands ;) The award of "Most serious student" goes to Nicole, who did everything from Open Water to Advanced and Nitrox diver, and has now close to 30 logged dives, all in one go ! Meanwhile, Florian was also studying hard, to get his Advanced and Nitrox certifications, and the french team got their heads together to complete their Nitrox Course and enjoy the benefits of enriched air. Congratulations to you all !
