Chloe Hunt from the Greens Fins Project based in Phuket came to Samui and gave a presentation to the staff from 100 Degrees East and The Dive Academy. The presentation was about promoting the Green Fins Code of Conduct and on how to conduct a Reef Watch Survey.

The following day staff from both dive centres joined Chloe on Chaweng Reef for a Reef Watch training dive and they were shown how to collect and record the data. The data was sent to Green Fins to be kept on the database. Data from further surveys will be compared to the database and this will give an indication of any changes to the condition of the reef.

PADI IDC on it's way on Koh Samui

| No Comments

During the month of October, PADI Course Director Camille Lemmens is conducting a PADI IDC.

The 3 candidates have just completed their Assistant Instructor part of this IDC and started their Open Water Scuba Instructor or OWSI course today.

Next week the candidates will participate in a PADI Instructor Exam program to be held on Koh Tao.

Discovery dive Centre visited Sailrock today, great conditions with flat seas and great visibility. One side of Sailrock had 15 to 20 m Viz and the other side 25m plus. Loads of marine life from Yellow box fish to 2 giant Barracuda's, tuna, rabbit fish, at least 10 giant groupers, loads of Moray eels, snappers, bat fish and angel fish ( a serious aquarium today ). Only a mild current on one end of the rock but nothing to be concerned over.

No sign of the whaleshark that has been hanging around but still very very good conditions today.
