Have You Ever Considered Diving In The Lebanon?

Have you ever considered  diving in Lebanese waters.

Here’s an interesting article on Diving in the Lebanon from The Daily Star (Lebanon)


Interesting Article on Kids and Juniors Scuba Program Success

I found the following article interesting and hope that it might have some impact on creating further kids programs elsewhere.

My own youngest son aged just 14 has recently got his PADI Advanced Scuba Diver ranking and what was even better was his older Brother was his Instructor.

Getting people younger and earlier into the sport will create a much longer period of potential earning for dive businesses and lead to people being more aware and protective of the natural world around them.

Scuba Diving is a pastime that requires some element of common sense and health and safety awareness as well as team work all of which will benefit our children going forwarrd.

Why The Rainy Season Is Good For Diving In Koh Chang

A Big Thank You To My Friends At Scandinavian Chang Diving Center For The Following Item:-

Why The Rainy Season is GOOD
I know that sounds weird now, BUT I wrote that the sea around Koh Chang and Koh Rang was too hot, that was too hot for the corals and they started to bleach. By too hot I mean 33 till 35 degree Celsius!! The rain let us wait this year for  a long time, so the water got hot and hotter and the corals got light and lighter till white/ yellow or a (beautiful but sad) blue.


That’s why the rain is good, now it is raining some hours every day, so the water is getting cooler,  not too cold at all but back to acceptable temperatures like 31 degree celsius. And finally we can see the result of it: The corals get their colours back, of course not from one day to the other, but they start slowly to recover and that is just sooo good to see!
So, what are you waiting for contact Scandinavian Chang Dive Center Now and book your next dive and don’t forget to tell them that we told you.

I’m Back

Sorry for the lack of updates but I have been on a trip to the UK for three weeks, but now I am back so normal service will resume ASAP
