On the 12th of October 2016, Scubafish undertook the massive operation of Marine Park clean up. In conjunction with Pimalai Resort & Spa over 30 divers and snorkelers headed to the stunning Koh Haa where marine debris was removed, buoy lines were set and safe swim zones were implemented. The following day the beautiful islands of Koh Rok received the same treatment.

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.
All of us at Scubafish are looking forward to meeting 80 students from Srithammarat Suksa School (also known familiarly as the AMC) this coming Monday. The school, based in Nakon Si Thammarat in Southern Thailand, runs a special programme in partnership with the US State Department. The programme, which is newly up-and-running this year, offers…
Get into the habit of always taking your own bags with you or refusing a plastic bag at our local shops. And if for any reason you do genuinely need a plastic bag, take it out with you the next day and use it again. THEN use it to transport your sandy flip-flops back home with you at the end of your holiday. Please help us at Scubafish to keep our sea and island clean and start saying NO to plastic bags.
Trash Hero bottles let you get a much-needed water refill from all around the island, including all 4 Scubafish shops.
On March 21st, 2015, a group of marine scientists along with the help of Scubafish dive teams and volunteers will release 200 Western Clownfish into the Ko Haa Lagoon.
The Clownfish Release Project is generously funded by the owner of Pimalai Resort and Spa, Khun Anurat Tiyaphorn. The actual research is lead by Dr. Thorn Thamrongnawasawat, Head of the Department of Marine Sciences at Kasetsart University and supported by the Thai Department of Fisheries.
This year The Clownfish Release is on Saturday 22nd March 2014 and Scubafish are delighted to be supporting ‘The Clownfish Release Project 2014,’ organised by Pimalai Resort and Spa.
The event will be held at the beautiful islands of Ko Haa. It will be slightly different this year, as the Clownfish are going to be released at Ko Haa Lagoon and unlike previous years, they will be released into shallower waters. They will be released at a depth of 5 metres to allow participants who are non-divers to view all of the action.
Earth Hour 2013 was held on March 23rd, 2013 from 8:30 to 9:30 pm, local time. It’s motto is to raise awareness about climate change and show support for renewable energy.
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.
