Blog about diving in Burma and Thailand
Another amazing trip in the Mergui Archipelgo where we got the chance to meet some oceanic manta rays ! What an amazing feeling to spend 3 dives in Black Rock with at least 5 different curious specimen dancing around us during the whole time underwater !
First exploration trip for this season, cruising around Tower Rock to discover some new dive sites was an exciting experience ! The landscape in the north of the archipelago was stunning. The group of divers from the north of france, Marcq Plongée, were impressed by the diversity of the underwater life. Some turtles, different kind of sharks, nurse, white tip and bamboo, few marbled and bluespotted stingrays were the big animals encountered.
We've got also some beautiful macro critters, stone fish, octopuses and cuttlefishes, many different kind of shrimps like the almost invisible skeleton shrimp, some cute and tiny frogfish hiding in the sea fan and barrel sponges. Finally the ghost pipe fishes are back and we could count 14 individuals and their friends misters sea horses were still there, not less than 13 different !
We are looking forward for the end of the month and go back in the north of the archipelago to explore other virgin islands. Don't forget to visit our facebook page for more pictures.
