Plenty of Big Stuff at Hin Daeng & Hin Muang

This year Hin Daeng and Hin Muang have started early with both Whalesharks and Manta Rays seen by us in the last week.

Normally our trips to this dive area are relatively quiet with maybe 10-15 divers on board, but obviously this year the word got around that there was some interesting stuff to see and we had over 30 people on the boat!

Now with our sexy new Speedboat we should be able to offer far more trips to Hin Daeng and Hin Muang.

Wow it is so big and beautiful!!

Finally our custom built Dive Speedboat is on the island and ready to take you in complete luxury diving!

Yet to have the logo added, the boat is beautiful to  behold and has 2 of the largest engines I have ever seen on a speedboat.

Whaleshark at Hin Muang

Yes, I can confirm that today we saw a Whaleshark at Hin Muang!!!

Purple Rock (Hin Muang) is my personal favourite dive site and it is superb when the big stuff is there, because it is very hard to miss it. The site is completely submerged, giving an excellent viewing area above the reef to see any Manta Rays or indeed Whalesharks.

I am totally gutted, wished I had been on the boat ;-(

I finally get to go diving

Well it has been a long time coming, but yesterday I felt strong enough to try diving again. James Hoyland, on his day off, generously took over my Boatmaster duties and put together my gear for me. Wee, Lop and Ya all helped me get kitted up in the water and I went for a lovely 20minute dive.

Need to carry a bit less weight these days (as I have weights now integrated into my body) and the braces on my teeth don't help, but nevertheless it was a lovely dive.

Day only marred by James headbutting my beloved boat, but luckily Choksomboon 9 only has a small dent (pity about James nose though!)

thanks guys for making it possible,

Mellisa xx

Happy Halloween

So in true Blue Planet Divers style, we all got involved in the dressing up for Halloween, with the team deciding our theme should be 'The Addams Family" and 'The Munsters.' However Sam decided to opt out of the team activity and decided to go in Camouflage.
Clearly we are not going to win any awards for Beauty, and I was slightly perturbed by the amount of fuss the guys made, all night, about their make up.

I am however happy that Jim has found himself a new lady, not the most prettiest but she definitely has personality!
Big up to Cheeky Monkey Bar, for a fab party, Sam particularly liked the chicken drum sticks.
