West of Eden – Island 7

West of Eden

Situated on the west side of Ko Pa- Yu (Island 7) this is a typical western Similan Island dive site comprising of giant granite boulders.

Although this is not as beautiful as it’s eastern counterpart it is a very enjoyable dive. It is a great exploration dive with some nice canyons, giant sea fans and soft corals.

You should be able to find plenty of lobsters on this site amongst other interesting things including Red Fire Gobies, Cowrie Shells and Stonefish.

The boulders are definitely the highlight and traveling to far north or south will produce rubble so take your time and enjoy these massive creations. Keep an ear out for the creaking boulder, quite an eerie sound when diving.

Depths Range 12 -35 metres, Visibility is good and it is a great dive for all levels of divers although check with the captain first in relation to currents.

Depth: 12-25m Difficulty: ✩✩ Marine life: ✩✩✩ Coral: ✩✩✩ Currents: ✩✩

Lat: 8.596976 Long: 97.638588

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. If you want to become a certified scuba diver by doing the PADI Open Water Diver Course then the answer is yes. In the PADI Open Water Diver Course it is specified that you have to be able to swim 200 metres with any stroke and also have to be able to tread water or float for at least 10 minutes. The reason for this is not for the fact that scuba diving requires you to swim, but rather it is for yours and your groups safety. In the unlikely event that your BCD (Buoyancy Control Device) was to falter then there would be no device to keep you afloat [...]

Low Season Diving in Phuket

Dont let the forecasts fool you Firstly don't always believe the online weather forecast's. With the high humidity, we have year round here in Phuket, a lot of the online weather sites & App's will simply predict thunderstorms & rain 365 days of the year. They are happy to get this correct maybe 40% of the time..... We actually still have some very nice sunny days during the monsoonal season, and the diving can still be really good. Plus the beaches are less crowded and airfares & accommodation much cheaper, it's sounding like a win-win all round! If you are looking for a local forecast site/app we generally recommend looking at [...]
