GROUP TRIP TO KOH LANTA, THAILAND

MARCH 2017

Roll call : 6.00pm on 3rd March at Chada Beach to organise our dive gear for the following day. Miraculously all 19 of us had arrived at the hotel  travelling on various flights and different days but we all made it to our destination in the end!

 

It was perfect timing for sundowners on the beach!!

We spent 6 days with Blue Planet Divers, whose guides were very professional and safe. Due to unexpected boat issues, we also got to experience 3 different boats throughout the week: the catamaran, the large plod plod boat and the super fast speed boats, which enabled us to get to the exciting sites further afield!

During the week we dived 2 wrecks, saw sea snakes, an enormous sea horse, leopard and reef sharks, wonderful schools of snappers and fusiliers and numerous turtles. The mantas were somewhere but not near us!!

Congratulations to Jake and Tom for completing their PADI Advanced Open Water course and to Vicki for her 800th dive!

Back at the hotel, we managed to get to the beach and pool in time for Happy Hour! Beer and cocktails were the order of the day, but we steered clear of the local wine ....

 

Thai massages, tuk tuk rides and some amzing meals both at the hotel and in town were also enjoyed by all.
