Heading back from a day’s diving at Ko Haa, a small group of Scubafish divers were lucky enough to be able to rescue a group of Olive Ridley Turtles who had been badly entangled in a discarded fishing net.
We had just finished a beautiful day out diving at Ko Haa and were on our way back to Ko Lanta on MV Moskito, when our Captain spotted something unusual floating on the surface of the sea approximately 1km south-west of Ko Haa.
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.
The Tech on Tour team (Tony Andrews, Regional Manager for PADI Asia Pacific and Tech Diving Guru, Ben Reymenants from Blue Label Diving) arrived at Scubafish, literally laden down with Tech Gear and Goodies, ready to get kitted up for Ko Lanta’s first ever, Tech on Tour Event, to be hosted at Lanta’s premier 5-star resort Pimalai Resort & Spa.
Are you concerned about your dive trip to Ko Lanta following news reports about recent flooding in Thailand? Ko Lanta weather conditions remain calm, sunny and beautiful and the diving is fantastic at the moment.
PADI’s Tech on Tour in Thailand – the first event of its kind, is designed to introduce PADI’s Technical Diving arm ‘PADI TecRec‘ to recreational and professional divers in a hands-on, dynamic & innovative way.
As part of our continuing efforts to offer both exceptional service, and anticipate the requirements of our divers, Scubafish have been busy throughout the low season and are delighted to announce exciting new developments for the upcoming 2011-12 High Season!
