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

Diving in Puerto Galera (pt 1)

A big thank you to John Carlo Sola  at Mermaid Resort and Dive Centre for the following two part article I hope you enjoy it.

Diving in Puerto Galera is a must for any serious SCUBA enthusiast as well as for those just about thinking of taking on the underwater sport. With its awesome dive sites teeming with excellent coral reefs and excitingly vibrant marine life, Puerto Galera, dubbed the Pearl of Mindoro, is also part of the “center of the center of marine biodiversity in the world” according to Environmental Biology of Fishes. Underwater photography and videography find subjects in several wrecks, colorful Nudibranchs, sponges, and sea fans, and the main attraction of South East Asia’s Coral Triangle.

But diving in Puerto Galera (PG) is not only about the experience of “getting wet.” The whole package is what counts. Here are a few tips that would make your diving vacation a truly memorable experience.

Book in Advance and Plan your Trip

There is truth to the saying that “He who fails to plan, plans to fail.” No matter how much promise a trip or a destination gives you, there is much more to be gained from a well thought out venture. Read about PG from travel books and travel resources online. Search the web for travel reviews. Ask friends who’ve actually gone diving around these parts.

Map out the trip down to the smallest details from the best places to stay in, the best dive shops to dive with, and all your booking options. You may be surprised to learn how much discounts you can get if you book in advance. While knowing the best dates to book for your vacation could mean either you’ll have the whole place almost exclusively to yourself or there will be a lot of other divers you could network with. Any of the two would be good, depending on your overall plan.

Go with the Best Dive Center Possible

Once you’re done planning your trip and reading about PG, you’ll have a list of some dive centers you can go with. Some of the best dive shops in PG can be found in Sabang. Most often than not, they are the ones that really look good. That is, those with new equipment, a clean compressor room, equipment cleaning areas, and well kept interiors. If it feels and looks great, you’d know the shop actually invested to provide quality service.

The centers to go with are those with clear information ready all over. These are the ones that have printed material on dive sites, rates, courses and those critical to the day such as tide and weather information. Also consider their extras. The best often provide towels, hot and cold showers, and beverages. In addition, go with the SCUBA shops that can actually handle several guests all at the same time. This ability comes in handy when it comes to the next tip, which deals with diversification
