Phuket Diving Site Elephant Head Rock

Elephant Head Rock

Elephant Head Rock is a large rocky pinnacle that nestles between Similan Islands seven and eight. The strong current that runs between the two islands has washed the granite boulders on Elephant Head Rock smooth and created lots of really nice swim-throughs. Although strong currents are frequently prevalent the large size of the pinnacle ensures there is always a sheltered and safe area to dive and is often the first dive of the day to allow divers to explore the deeper areas of the site and catch the whitetip reef sharks cruising around on the southeast corner. If you do miss them on the first part of the dive then there's always a chance to see one resting in the many cracks and cave [...]

Phuket Diving Rental Equipment Equipment We Like

Phuket Diving Holiday – Hire Or Bring Scuba Equipment?

We would all prefer to be using our own equipment but sometimes the extra carriage fees, weight of equipment and trying to get it dry after we've finished scuba diving can be a bit of a pain. Hiring equipment can be a simple solution at a surprisingly low cost. If you're going on a liveaboard safari or are in Phuket just to dive then yes of course you'll bring what ever equipment you have. Everybody feels comfortable with their own equipment, you'll know how many weights you need, know how your regulator breaths, will be confident that your perfectly fitted fins won't cause any blisters that can really ruin a trip, know your mask won't leak and having a computer that you are familia [...]

Stonefish @ Racha noi, Banana Rocks Rare & Peculiar Critters

The Stonefish

The Stonefish can be found in many of the popular day trip destinations in Phuket. They are not small, reaching an average length of 30 to 40 centimeters and up to 2 kg in weight. They have the ability to blend in the environment quite well and they can be quite difficult to notice underwater. A bottom-dweller, their appearance gives them the look of a rock or stone while they lay still waiting for a prey. When a prey is in the striking zone, the attack takes about 0.015 seconds. The Stonefish defense mechanism is the venom that they pack in 13 dorsal spines. This venom is released when pressure is applied on the spine, so this highlights the importance of good buoyancy control [...]
