February 2009 Archives

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. Please goto www.scuba-evolution.com or www.tecevolution.com for further info and pictures of the latest trips.

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.

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.
