Similan Islands Rock

Khao Lak10 Jan 2011 - 14 Jan 2011

Apart from a Discover Scuba dive and a couple of goes in a pool before departing this was my first proper Dive Trip. On board I did my Open Water and Advanced Diver certificates while in the Similans and what a place to learn how to scuba!

The dive spots included East/West of Eden, Elephant Head Rock with tons of awesome swim throughs, Khoh Bon, The Dome, Richeleau Rock - a fantastic site and many more! Every Dive had visibility of 25m or more with heaps of fantastic sea life swimming about.

I got to see Sea horse, Clown fish, Octopus, Trigger fish, all kinds of moray, honey comb eel, Nudibranch, Boxfish (my favourite! aka world's most unco fish), stingrays, Lionfish x 1000, all the different shrimp, blacktip, fish, fish and more fish but sadly no Mantas! Next time maybe!
