A Different Look For Mondays

A Different Look For Mondays

Great Phuket Diving Without The Need To Go Deep

Local Dive Thailand now runs a day trip to Shark Point, Anemone Reef and Koh Doc Mai every Monday. These three great dive sites are regular features on the diving trips in Phuket but rarely all on the same day and Anemone Reef is often skipped in favour of the more popular Shark Point. So we’ve had a little change to our schedule to make sure all certified divers have a chance of visiting this trio of great dive sites.

Why?

The only opportunity to visit at least two of these outstanding dive sites in one day was as part of the King Cruiser day trip but this means that divers only qualified to dive 18m had to skip one dive or as is more often the case not join the trip at all. So taking the King Cruiser out of the itinerary on Mondays allows Open Water qualified divers a chance for a full days diving at Phuket’s premier dive sites. Conditions can be a little tricky especially when the current is strong but essentially any competent diver should be able to enjoy this terrific day out.

What Can You See?

There’s very few guarantees in diving but you will definitely see some stunning soft and anemone coral patches, clownfish, schools of many other different fish species and some colourful nudibranchs, you never really know what’s going to turn up on any given day. If we take our last trip as an example then we can list mating leopard sharks, hawksbill turtle, tigertail seahorses, great barracuda, yellowtail barracuda, grey bamboo sharks, pharoah cuttlefish and tons of schooling snappers, not a bad days diving at all! The visibility wasn’t spectacular by any means but we’re coming out of a period of very heavy rain so it was too be expected and probably stopped us from seeing a lot more wildlife.

As we come into high season we expect the conditions to improve and the diving only to get better. So if you’re heading over this high season be sure to check out our Monday trip to Shark Point, Anemone Reef and Koh Doc Mai and see what you can find.

simple tips to reduce scuba diving air consumption Scuba Diving For Beginners

Improving My Scuba Diving Air Consumption

Let's first start by saying that it's not a competition. Having good air consumption doesn't necessarily make you a better diver. If you're ending the dive 20 or 30 bar behind your buddy but still reaching your planned bottom time then it's nothing to worry about and could simply be physiological differences that are extremely difficult to overcome. Having said that we do have numerous instructors around Phuket that can only be described as ' [...]

Why Do Scuba Divers Use Nitrox?

Nitrox or Enriched Air Nitrox to give it's full name is the most popular PADI speciality course that we teach and for good reason. It's relatively cheap, can be done in one day, straight forward and really is beneficial to the diver. Excessive absorption of nitrogen into our body tissues is the factor that limits a divers time underwater. So by simply putting more oxygen into our scuba tank, therefor reducing the amount of nitrogen we [...]
