The boat is wet again!

Today was our last trip to the boatyard and it was lovely to see the boat returned to the water. It has just a little  painting left to do and then it is sailing back to Koh Lanta.
Kev and Captain Wee check out the boat
Captain Wee is delighted to have a new flashy light, the engine is stunningly shiny, and the boat is being repainted from top to bottom. It looks beautiful!

Kev enjoys putting the boat back into the water
Never have I seen him so happy!

Getting ready for High Season

Kev and I took a visit yesterday, to Kantang, to see our lovely boat. Currently it is undergoing its yearly service and we are all on track for its return on Monday (3rd October) and hopefully out diving on the Thursday (6th October). We are still open for diving up until then, but we really need a reason to take the boat out on Thursday, so make sure you book some diving that day.

Just got to check they spell the name right! Almost missed the Blue Blanet divers last year!

Gordon Ramsay Explains Why We Want A Ban on Shark Finning

90 UK Pounds for a soup that is destroying shark populations and tastes of.......... NOTHING!!!

September - the lull before the fun!

September on Koh Lanta is always a strange one for us who live here; the place gets quieter, there are very few guests, it is quite wet and we start to get excited about High Season.

The lovely Choksomboon 9 (our boat) has just gone for its regular service, so by the beginning of October, our boat will be shiny and new and docked on its new improved pier. Our staff are booking their flights for their return and we are having many requests for professional and recreational courses.

So if you are planning to see us, drop me a line and we can give you advice on how to get here, where to stay, what to do etc

Looking forward to seeing you this High Season
