Wow, what a great way to kick off the high season here at Scubafish!
Yesterday, we made our first trip of the season out to world-famous dive sites Hin Daeng and Hin Muang. On the second dive at Hin Daeng, we descended slowly on the eastern side and had the pleasure of meeting a 4 meter long, juvenile, whale shark.

To see it´s movement and behaviour under water just made me want to know more about this interesting animal.
Scubafish are proud to be hosting a Shark Guardian presentation and awareness event tomorrow evening at their Headquarters in Kantiang Bay.
Shark Guardian will present their shark and marine presentation at Scubafish Ko Lanta, Thailand, on Sunday 2nd March at 19:30.

Along with our bumper Whaleshark February we have also been fortunate enough to be visited by a fair number of leopard sharks over the last few weeks at the lovely Ko Haa. Ordinarily we advise our divers that the sites we are most likely to see leopard sharks are the Phi Phi sites, but this…
