Predicting Whalesharks for the next few days

waynesws300x225Well we're getting pretty good at his now for predicting how long the whalesharks will hang around for. Dived with one for 2 days on the trot & my money s on a t least another 2-3 days more. Conditions are perfect. Great visibility, slight ocean currents & lots of plankton all make for a good pit stop for these huge ocean travelling beasts of the deep. And then of course when they do finally head off chances are we will bump into them again at one of Koh Tao's other awesome dive sites most predictably, Green Rock, then White Rock, round the corner to Shark Island, off to Sothwest Pinnacle & probably the last place we'll see them as they head off on their great adventure will be Sail Rock. Awesome creature, awesome divesites, awesome Dive center!

Charity fundraiser for Sea Shepherd & Koh Tao Animal Clinic

auction300x225So we have counted the the cash, and recovered from a love filled week. But we would still like to mention that the Valentine charity auction was another great success. Raising a grand total of 35,000 THB that will be split between our local animal clinic and the Sea Shepherd Cove Guardians.
We would like to say a special thanks to Banyan bar for hosting the event, and our very own Instructor Trainer Simon Garrity for his excellent auctioning abilities, plus all our wonderful volunteers.
Oh and our awesome Big Blue Movies photographer Billy Cloud

Early bird catches the Whaleshark!

rachws300x225Nothing better than diving with a Whaleshark before breakfast. Not many people in the world get to experience such an amazing event but here in Koh Tao its actually a fairly regular experience. It is beleived the Whalesharks we get that visit us in Koh Tao are on a migratory route which involves setting off from the Phillipines, then up to Thailand over to the Indian ocean for a visit to the Seychelles and Maldives then down the coast of Africa where when it reaches South Africa then is beleived to head back along the coast the way it came & back to Thailand. SOme Whalesharks have been tracked all the way over to Western Australia aswell but most of the ones we get do the Asian/ African route. Whalesharks are they the backpackers of the ocean. Typically here in Koh Tao if we see Whalesharks at Chumphon Pnnacle where this Whaleshark was seen then we can pretty much expect to see them at some point in the coming days or weeks at Shark Island, Southwest Pinnacle & Sail Rock too. So request your divesites with us & we'll take you there. Big Blue Diving, backpacking with Whalesharks since 1991!
