Koh Haa Dive Trip – 4th May 2018

Here is a blog on the special charter of Aussie Divers Speedboat dive trip to Koh Haa on the 4th May 2018.

On the 4th May 2018 the Aussie Divers Phuket luxury speedboat made an unscheduled dive trip to a group of 5 close knit islands names Koh Haa (Islands five).

The trip was a bit of an experiment in the validity of running a trip there once a week next high season.

The islands are approximately 60 km south east of Chalong Bay, Phuket. The boat ride took around 90 minutes in relatively calm seas.

The weather was fine and there were is expectations of a really good days diving.

We arrive shortly around 10:30am and were presented with a stunning cluster of five islands.

First Dive

The first dive was on Koh Haa Yai (Island 5). We were immediately face with some excellent visibility. The coral was healthy and there was a great range of nice reef fish along with quite a lot of giant moray eels.

The dive site is made famous by two underwater coral laden caves, one smaller than the other. The bigger one, a large open spaced cave is affectional known as “The Cathedral”. The Cathedral is one of the easiest cave to have a look around.

Lunch was in a stunning lagoon on island 2 surrounded by picturesque islands.

Second Dive

The second dive of the day was on island one or Koh Haa Neua. Another dive with health corals lots of nice reef fish and some beautiful rock formations. This dive site is famous by a stunning chimney that runs from about 15 metres up to 5 meters with sunlight streaming all of the way through the tunnel.

The surface interval was around island four and the final dive was along island 2.

Third Dive

This was also a nice dive. Visibility was not as good as the other dives but a very similar dive with reasonable coral with plenty of nice coral, reef fish and a lot of eels again.

All dives were relatively easy and all would be suitable to open water level.

All in all it was a great day out and hopefully come the start of next high season Aussie Divers Phuket will start to run scuba diving day trips to Koh Haa on a weekly basis.

Do I Need to Know How To Swim to Scuba Dive?

This is a question that I often get asked, and really it is not as simple as YES or NO. Here is some explanations and reasons why. If you want to become a certified scuba diver by doing the PADI Open Water Diver Course, the answer is yes. In the PADI Open Water Diver Course it is specified that you have to be able to swim continuously for 200 metres. This can be with any stroke however it does need to be continuous without stopping. There is alternate option and that is you do a 300 metre mask, fin and snorkel swim. Some do find this easier to the 200 swim. You also have to be able to tread water or float for at least 10 minut [...]

Why does my scuba mask fog up?

Fogging scuba or snorkeling masks have been a scuba diving issue since scuba diving first started.A foggy mask can ruin a dive. Here we will try and work out why does our scuba masks fog up? The basic principle on why a mask fogs is a simple one. In the simplest term, temperature inside the mask is greater than the outside of the mask. The temperature difference occurs because our body temperature inside (skin, forehead, breathing) is around 37 degrees Celsius or 98 degrees Fahrenheit and the water on the outside of the mask is less than the water temperature. Very basically, the temperature difference causes condensation (assiste [...]
