The three dive daytrip departed with 9 divers on board to dive King Cruiser, Shark Point and Koh Doc Mai.
Although it is low season the water was fairly flat with viz around 12m for the sites.
The King Cruiser a large wreck which sank 14 years ago was as always impressive, with schools of Barracuda and snappers, hiding scorpion fish displaying lion fish and many nudibranchs along the side of the vessel.
The resident turtle failed to appear to day but with all the busy life around was not missed too much.
Next dive was Shark point where we had mating cuttle fish, sea horse and a zebra moray. A leopard shark was spotted sleeping on the sandy bottom, with khules stingrays about.
The last dive of Koh Doc Mai did not disappoint either, with the fantastic macro life, free swimming white eye morays, bamboo sharks and ghost pipe fish. Great days diving.
A day trip at Koh Phi Phi, my first dive here at Phi Phi was at a dive site called Koh Bida Nok, I was introduced to my dive guide, she was called Nat, a local girl who had been diving around Phuket and Phi Phi for 10 years.
Nat gave us a thorough dive briefing, my first sight was a school of blue fin trevallies i thought wow! as we descended even further we then hit a beautiful coral reef. Nat our guide was showing us everything, macro stuff like sea horses, nudi-branch and the elusive clown angler fish, which at first i couldn't see until Nat started to point at it. Giant moray eels, lion fish and the beautiful cuttle fish.
We then ascended to a shallower depth and this is when it got really exciting WOW, black tip sharks everywhere! my first sight of a shark this was truly amazing, so elegant and super fast, after a 2 or 3 minutes the sharks then just disappeared into the blue. I have to say a special thanks to Nat our amazing and most sincere dive guide, also the boat we was on MV Scuba Fun, amazing crew who made everyone feel special and we all enjoyed their hospitality.
I joined on a liveaboard as a customer which was very novel for me. Having worked in the industry for many years I am usually the guide and taking care of others, not really diving for myself.
So at the end of one season I decided to take a trip with Scuba Cat on board MV Scuba Adventure.
The boat only carries 12 people so that was great in terms of being flexible with dive schedules, and dive sites were tailored to the divers on board, which was great.
I have dived the Similans, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai and Richelieu many times over the last 11 years, and as always they were great.
Harlequin shrimps in their pairs with juveniles were one of the highlights, along with Manta's at 3 places, white tip reef sharks, sea-horses, ghost pipe fish, and many different varieties of Nudibranchs and shrimps.
I love macro stuff and with this dive center has the time to go slowly and find things.
