Thailand – Australia – United Kingdom

Blown away by the diving

Koh Tao is a small island in the gulf of Thailand and with all small islands the weather can change quickly, without warning and stay on the island for far longer then anyone would like.

But bad weather doesn’t stop the hordes of divers from exploring the pristine coral and enchanted pinnacles below our tropical waters. Although the surface may be bumpy and wet; the conditions below the water are perfect.

The past few days the tech crew have been hiding from the wind by servicing our compressors so they’re in top form for the high season which starts in August.

Yesterday, the tech crew watched the dive boats get bounced around in the sea, furiously emptying beer bottles in case a make shift raft was needed. Despite our chants of “wreck, wreck, wreck” nothing exciting happened; i guess the boats here really can handle the waves.

If you diving isn’t your thing then there’s always plenty to do on koh tao like rock climbing or watching naked men run along the beach(?)

    Better that than watching naked men rock climbing. I think. maybe.

    Keep up the good work on the blog, i love reading it. It brings me equal amounts of pleasure and pain (because I am not out there)!
