NOW OPEN ALL YEAR!
Over the last six or seven months since Lanta Diver started this year's high season in October 2008, much has happened. Except for the unfortunate events in Bangkok recently, Koh Lanta has been completely undisturbed and still is, as it always has been, one of Thailand's most precious kept secrets. Now for the first time since Lanta Diver opened 10 years ago, the dive center will remain open all year running day trips and courses!

Recent Diving News!

For the past 2 weeks on every trip to Hin Muang & Hin Daeng, we have seen several manta rays and whale sharks. On some of the dives we even saw manta and the whale sharks swiming side by side. The diving at the moment since the begiining of May has been just tremendous! The diving is great, the visibility is awesome and we're having loads of fun. Come and join us!

Whale shark passing Koh Ha One (Koh Ha North or Koh Ha Nua) see dive site map 2 days in a roll 28th - 29th March 2009.
Koh Ha is a local dive that we arrange for 3 days per week but this trip is very special because we have a lucky person who just finished Open Water Course and decide to make fun dive with us. On 28th March 09, our 1st dive we went to 20 meters then up to around 15 - 16 meters. When we try to find special marine life on , my buddy tapping us to turn to the right side. Suddenly, the great marine life of this trip shown up. We scream with happiness even though we have regulator in our mouth.

Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for boat internet size.jpgSo we have reached the end of the peak season and things here are becoming more relaxed at last. The weather is still very calm and our favorite dive sites are all accessible on a daily basis. Lately ( in the last week) we have seen whale sharks on Bida Nok and Bida Nai, black tip reef sharks in schools on Phi Phi Ley & beautiful visibility on Koh Ha with Mantas at Hin Daeng and Hin Muang. The wreck of the king cruiser is as usual teeming with large schools of fish. To the left is a picture of our fleet of 5 boats.



On the 28th Febuary everybody climbed aboard M.V.Evolution at 6am and we all made our way to the PAK 1 vertical wreck. As the shotline was laid and the first check was made the visibilty was 35 metres and the water was blue blue blue. Most divers made 3 dives all on nitrox and some with tec rigs DIR style as this is becoming a more than popular way to dive to see everything under 30metres. We have all of the equipment for sale and rent and tec courses from DSAT and TDI as well as the only dive centre to offer 50%, 80%, 100%, and helium mixes for the serious divers. Now well equipped on the boat for emergency situations you can dive deep and safe with us. Check out the video now!!

Scuba-evolution are keen about finding new wrecks and thats exactly what we are doing. At the start of febuary when are Tec buddies came back to the Island we headed out into the blue with a our black book of marks to see what was down there. We were distracted for 40 minutes when we were overwhelmed by Pilot Whales for as far as the eyes could see. Again everybody suited up and swam with the whales which is the first time for most onboard M.V.Evolution. When we finally made it to the marks we descended on a fishing trawler approx 40 metres long with amazing fish life and some massive grouper to boot!!

The next wreck trip is planned for the end of Febuary and we believe it to be over 100 metres in length and approx. 50metres deep. This again will be another virgin wreck with lots to find and no doubt some great fish life and great visability.

Safe diving and double up......

Whalesharks Koh Chang

| No Comments
On the 7/2/09 whilst aboard M.V.Evolution Whalesharks appeared off of Koh Chang (Hin Rap) and for most people on the boat they got to swim with this massive graceful creature. This is a once in a life time opportunity for most people so everyone was very excited to have done such a great activity.
Then on the 10/2/09 an even bigger Whaleshark appeared (Hin Luk Bat) and was extremely playful with everybody on M.V.Evolution. Again a massive playful fish approx. 7 metres long and very graceful. Hopefully this may become an even more common site as this is very out of season for the Whalesharks to be in the area.

Dive safe from everyone at Scuba-evolution.........

2nd Whale Shark in 2 days

| No Comments
After sighting our first whaleshark of the year yesterday we were keen  to return to the same spot and see if the huge beast was still there. Jumping into the warm, flat calm sea and decending down we start the dive. Visability is good at least 20m. Off to the east pinnacle we go and out of nowhere the beautiful creature appears.. Wow  2nd day diving at Sail Rock 2nd Whaleshark both different as yesterdays one had a huge mark on her back.

Whaleshark sighting

As the season starts Sail rock gets better and better, today for birthday boy Neil a Whaleshark was ordered. As the boat was mooring a huge shadow appeared and a 6 metre male wharkshark was spotted. The divers on the boat all hurried to get ready and spent the whole of the 1st dive with him.
