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!

When is the best time of year to go diving in Thailand?

minke300x225It's got to be the most often asked question. What is the best month to go diving in Thailand? And the answer is in February. Not just here in Koh Tao but also over on the West coast if you fancy a visit to the Similan Islands. And the reason why February is so good? Well apart from the weather being reliably fantastic with clear blue skies & constant sunshine, its a great month for visibility & when it comes to marinelife encounters we got Whalesharks, large schooling pelagics, & if you're lucky we often have encounters with pilot whales, minke whales & if you're really lucky we've even had sightings of Blue Whales. On the west coast we get all of the above & mantas. Not bad eh? Which is why February is probably the best month of the year to go diving in Thailand. Check out these Minke's spotted yesterday in the Similans. Photocredit goes to Mr amazing Walter G. Schmit onboard Khao Lak Scuba's awesome liveaboard boat Manta Queen 2.
