Decommissioned in 2014, the RTN Kled Gaeow was purposely sunk via controlled explosion to create a new dive site . The 47 metre long wreck sits almost upright (20 degree list) facing north to south (bow-stern), some 800-1000m to the east of Piley Bay (Ko Phi Phi Ley).
In their continuing mission to keep scuba diving courses accessible, convenient and up to date, PADI have expanded their digital options, from the hugely popular eLearning course options to their new Digital or eManuals for students.
Scubafish, and our students have been thrilled to join this evolution! Over the last month when a student decides to sign-up for an Open Water or Advanced Open Water Course we are happy to offer immediate access to their Digital Course Manual online to get started on the reading and knowledge development sections.
Scubafish are happy to announce our latest special offer to kick off the start of the high season.
We are offering the PADI Open Water Course + Zoop Dive Computer (to take home) + National Marine Park Fees for an amazing 24,899 THB!!! (or 23, 899 THB if you enroll in the eLearning Open Water Course)
The Instructor team here at Scubafish would like to introduce the first in a series of Handy Tips for beginner (and not-so-beginner) divers. When asked what they wanted to start with – the answer was unanimous – the importance of good buoyancy!
Have you noticed how some divers seem to move effortlessly, gliding through the water with barely a kick and coming up with 100 bar or so still left in their tanks? Or seen a divemaster hovering upside-down face to face with a leopard shark? Or hovering in a buddha-type pose with crossed fins? This is all the result of proper buoyancy control, and here we shall share our knowledge with you!
Have you ever wondered about the tanks with the distinctive green and yellow band you may have seen on the dive boats? or have you ever wanted to know more about becoming a certified nitrox diver? Let Scubafish dispel the myths and mystery surrounding nitrox, and explain the benefit and ease of certification!

Liquid Lense would like to say a huge CONGRATULATIONS to Kaew, our most recent Liquid Lense Underwater Photographer PLUS student. Kaew, who had never photographed underwater before, captured some beautiful images. She started with our Liquid Lense Go Photo Course and loved it so much, she decided to continue and complete the Liquid Lense Underwater Photographer PLUS Course.
Kaew first started with basic white balance settings, silhouette shots and composition techniques. Then, she moved onto working with manual settings such as; shutter speeds and apertures. Concentrating on photographing divers with marine life, manual white balance mode, macro and flash photography (mastering an external strobe on her third day.) During her course, she particularly enjoyed learning about white balance and macro techniques.
After scuba diving, current PADI Flying After Diving guidelines say that you should not go to altitude (fly) within 12 hours of completing a single dive or 18 hours when doing multiple dives (where possible, wait 24 hours).
