It’s official! High season 2015-16 just keeps getting even more awesome! After kicking off the season diving with Whalesharks at world famous dive sites Hin Daeng and Hin Muang, we were blown away by the arrival of not one but two Whalesharks on our recent trip to Koh Rok, as well as some stunningly beautiful…

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 celebrate Shark Awareness Day, why not take the newly released AWARE Shark Conservation Diver Distinctive Specialty Course, with Scubafish, which will turn you into an advocate for shark conservation?
Scubafish daily takes part in The Thailand eShark Project, which gathers data from divers in Thailand and hopes to be the largest project undertaken in one country, by divers for shark conservation.
Over 70% of our planet is covered by the Ocean, which is home to 80% of all life. Therefore it goes without saying, that protecting sharks, as one of the main regulators within this ecosystem, is crucial to our life on Earth. In part, our existence depends on theirs.
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. Learn about sharks, their importance, different species, threats and conservation efforts. Updates on Spot the Leopard Shark – Thailand and Thailand eShark with simple ways for all to get involved in protecting our most precious species.
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…
Scubafish are having a fabulous February – diving conditions are superb, sightings of manta rays at Hin Daeng & Hin Muang remain on almost every trip (since the middle of December), and we’ve even been visited at Ko Haa by leopard sharks and a whaleshark over the last 2 weeks! In this particular post we…
Leopard Sharks (Stegostoma fasciatum), also known as Zebra Sharks, are a species of Carpet Shark. They are a member of the Stegostomatidae family. They are frequently found around coral reefs and on sandy seabeds, in tropical coastal waters up to a depth of 70m. They are a popular attraction for divers and are a favourite with us at Scubafish. They can be seen at all the dive sites around Ko Lanta, but most commonly at one of our dive sites, Ko Phi Phi.
At Scubafish we are continually raising awareness of the fact that Sharks are being slaughtered in their millions. We must stop the brutal killing of these magnificent, valuable creatures. Sharks need our help.
Lets make a Shark fin-free Chinese New Year, this year and every year!
