15% off all cruises in November on the Scuba Explorer

Similan IslandsScuba Diving in the Similan Islands

The High season is nearly upon us, the Similans opens again, and the Scuba Explorer is ready to start its weekly 3 day/3 night or 5 day/5 night cruises to the Similan Islands, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai and Richelieu Rock. Clear turquoise waters, 30 meter visibility, a huge diversity of marine life, excellent macro diving, and nights spent being rocked to sleep by the comforting sound of the calm waves. What better way to spend a holiday then to be diving 4 times a day, with the added option of a night dive, on some of the best dive sites in the world, being guided by some very experienced instructors on board the luxury Scuba Explorer. Not only will they show you creatures you may never have seen before, you will also learn about the different marine species you will encounter, all the instructors on board the Scuba Explorer have a wide range of knowledge about the life in our Oceans.

The first trip of the season leaves on 31st Oct until 5th Nov, a trip all of us are excited about, we can not wait to get back on the Scuba Explorer diving in the Similans. Throughout the month of November the Scuba Explorer is offering a fantastic 15% off all dive cruises, a great opportunity to experience the beautiful wonders of the Similans & Surin Islands and Richelieu Rock.

Last season in the Simians & Surin Islands was the best season in about 10 years with Whales Sharks and Manta Rays galore, you were unlucky not to see one of these magnificent creatures on a cruise. Often we encountered up to 5 Manta Rays at a time, including the rare and beautiful black Manta. These inquisitive animals spent much of the dives playing around us as we hung in the water marvelling at their majestic quality, knowing not to chase them and scare them away. Seen most of the time on Koh Bon and Koh Tachai, the Scuba Explorer spends a day diving at these sites, with the chance of a second visit on the way back from Richelieu Rock if the promise of Manta Rays is high. One of the fantastic things about the Scuba Explorer is the flexibility to change the itinerary to give our customers the best dives possible and the highest chance of diving with Manta Rays and Whale Sharks.

Richelieu Rock, as always, did not disappoint last season with the majority of dives having sightings of Whale Sharks, these magnificent gentle giants of the ocean are often seen at swimming at 5 meters over the pinnacles of Richelieu Rock making for an unforgettable experience. They swim so close you can almost touch them (but don’t as we do not allow that). The macro life on Richelieu Rock is amazing, the Scuba Explorer spends a whole day exploring this dive site, 3/4 dives is not even enough to see it all, each 50 minute dive will pass by so quickly you will not want to surface, you will be itching to get back in for the next dive.

Overnight trip to Koh Phi Phi on board the Scuba Explorer

Koh Phi Phi on the Scuba ExplorerOvernight trip to Koh Phi Phi on the Scuba Explorer

The weather has turned, the seas are flat, and the diving is outstanding. So, time to join us on the Scuba Explorer for a fun packed, dive filled adventure to the Koh Phi Phi National Marine Park for an overnight trip. 7 dives including a sunset dive and early morning dive, a chance to dive the dive sites when all the other dive boats have left for the day and before they arrive, and a night out on Koh Phi Phi Don itself. This all inclusive package is only offered in the month of September leaving on Mondays and Fridays. Choose which level of accommodation you would like, jump on board, suit up and dive with us.

Koh Phi Phi dive sites are visited everyday by a number of dive boats from Phuket and Phi Phi itself, for good reason as they are fantastic dives swarming with marine life, you will literally be swimming through huge schools of Big Eyed Snapper and 2 Spot Snapper in the hundreds, the amazing bright yellow tail of the Big Eyed Snapper and they way they all move in unison make this a spectacular site. The Scuba Explorer is offering a chance to experience all of this at time when no other divers will be there. The day boats travelling from Phuket get to Phi Phi to do their first dive at 11am, and have left by 2pm after the second dive. The Scuba Explorer has scheduled another 2 dives after the boats have left, no other divers, pristine corals, all the space in the ocean. The chance to see Black Tip Reef Sharks will be increased, and the sunset dive at Koh Phi Phi is a must, not often done due to time restrictions.

Advanced Open Water course on the Southern Andaman Liveaboard cruise

Elephant Statue in Siam BayAdvanced Open Water Deep dive in Siam Bay Racha Yai

Freedom Divers asked me to come on-board the Liveaboard trip to the South Andaman for 2 days/3 nights to teach an Advanced Open Water course, of course I was delighted to accept, even the storm warnings were not enough to put me off.

I met my student to go over a few skills in the pool before we set sail that evening, after a few hours in the pool with her I was quietly confident that she would have no problems with the dives we had coming up. I also learnt that she was very excited and had never spent a night on a boat before, this was to be an experience for her.

We boarded the boat at 8pm ready to leave for Koh Phi Phi early morning for our first dive at 7am. The first dive I decided was to be a fun dive as my student had not dived in a year I thought it better to ease her into it and not throw her in the deep end with skills and knowledge, this turned out to be a good idea as there was limited visibility and fairly strong current on the first dive, it was still enjoyable and gave my student time to get used to diving again. Swimming through schools of Big Eyed Snapper my student gave my the thumbs up (wrong sign but I knew what she meant) to say she loved it, mental note here to recap some of the underwater hand signals. The following dives I got the correct signal of ‘awesome’ a lot.
