During the last few weeks, Ko Haa Lagoon has been visited by a juvenile Spotted Eagle Ray. Spotted Eagle Ray sightings are rare in this area. In the past when we have come across them, they have been shy and difficult to get close to. This one however, was anything but shy and our Scubafish team and their divers were lucky enough to get close enough to see it on many occasions.
Everyone at Scubafish is very excited that the Giant Manta Rays are back at Hin Daeng & Hin Muang! In the last few weeks we have had the chance to encounter these gentle giants on almost every dive at Hin Daeng & Hin Muuang and hope to see many more over the high season.
We are delighted that Project AWARE have chosen to feature Scubafish’s turtle-saving day in their latest campaign against marine debris. Pervasive debris kills wildlife, destroys habitats, and threatens our health and economy. Found in even the most remote ocean places, once underwater, debris can remain for generations.
Whale Sharks are an endangered marine species – but here in Ko Lanta we are delighted to have been named as the top diving location in Thailand for Whale Shark sightings. These beautiful migratory animals can be found along the west coast of Thailand in the Andaman Sea and also in the Gulf of Thailand.
The Clownfish and Seahorse Release Video 2012 was filmed on 30th March 2012. Dr. Thon and his team of 10 marine scientists from Kasetsart University were joined by 30 volunteers and participants onboard Scubafish Dive Boats. They headed out to Ko Haa to release 200 western clownfish and 50 seahorses at Island #1 at Ko Haa.
Scubafish are delighted to be supporting Pimalai’s 8th Clownfish Release Project event on 2nd April 2012 at Ko Haa. This year, Dr. Thon Thamrongnawasawat and his team of marine scientists, plan to release 200 Western Clownfish and are extending their project to include 50 Seahorses to release at Island #1 and #6 at popular local dive site, Ko Haa.
Nudibranches (sea slugs) are wonderful little critters with amazingly bright colours and intricate details. Due to their tiny size, they can be tricky little subjects to photograph, but getting it right can produce beautiful results.
