  • The Similans : What more can we say…The Similans are simply undoubtedly one of the top 10 dive locations in the world. Huge boulders. Massive large fish life. Intimidating white tips. The graceful manta. The mega whale shark…besides there is no other way to get to the Similans except on a liveaboard….need we say more?

Fresh Cuttlefish on Anemone Reef

Posted in Articles, News |

Cuttlefish

We have been having some amazing dives off Shark Point and Anemone Reef of late. Apart from the great 40 metre viz that is to be expected this time of the year, we have seen some really interesting stuff…If you are looking for big stuff, then lets keep fingers crossed for good luck. We have seen consistently in the past weeks, some leopard sharks sitting pretty in the sand as we descend. And lets not forget the bamboo shark that was sleeping snugly under that rock. And the occasional turtle that seems to have crossed over from King Cruiser Wreck over to Anemone Reef this season.

But what really intrigued the group of us last week was when at about 18 meters, lo and behold, a school of cuttle fish scuttled past us. There must have been at least 30 of them. It was amazing watching them as they winged their little petticoats daintilly across our paths. Then, as we thought the pleasure of watching these “pretty maidens” passing by was over, another school of at least another 20 or more of them came from the opposite direction, gracefully skirting their way to the surface.

Some facts about Cuttlefish…They are marine animals of the order Sepiida belonging to the Cephalopoda class (which also includes squid, octopuses, and nautiluses). Despite their common name, cuttlefish are not fish but molluscs. Cuttlefish have an internal shell (cuttlebone), large W shaped eyes, and eight arms and two tentacles furnished with denticulated suckers, with which they secure their prey. Cuttlefish eat small molluscs, crabs, shrimp, fish and other cuttlefish. Their predators include dolphins, sharks, fish, seals and other cuttlefish. They live about 1 to 2 years. Recent studies showed that cuttlefish are the most intelligent of the vertebrate species. Isn’t that amazing?

Right, you’re still not impressed? And you still want to see whale sharks, mantas and other big stuff? I have long outgrown the desperate need to see only the biggies…Honestly, every single dive is and can be an incredible one – and the sheer delight of discovering a leaf fish camoflouged against the corals, with its big beautiful glassy eyes reflecting the sunrays like two diamonds glistening in the water already enriches my day.

Posted in Events, News |

St Patricks Day

At the most happening spot of town, KRABIDIVERS.com is hosting our first St Patrick’s Day party celebrated worldwide on March 17th every year…But our party starts on SUNDAY MARCH 16TH, 2008!

Right in the heart of Ao Nang, the lovely beachfronted seaside town centre of Krabi, we are on the ground floor of the Sea of Love Plaza, which is the most happening spot in town. To find us, just look out for McDonalds, Swenson’s and Star Bucks just across the street from where we are. Come to the Plaza and you will find us upfront at the main atrium.

Our party begins on March 16th – the night before St Patrick’s Day – starting the moment our divers return from their day’s diving – and will last all night, and all morning – and probably, all night long again…. So, if you are living in or visiting Krabi, pop over and join us for some all night music, food and of course, loads of drink. We promise you the cheapest beer in town!

Bring your friends. Everyone is welcome! It’s a date – see you there!

Snorkelling at Krabi National Marine Park

Posted in Articles, Events, News |

We didn’t expect to see so much from a simple half day snorkelling trip – turtles, box fish, razor fish and lots more…What was most interesting was that we could snorkel right through several overhanging rocks and into some caves created by the national rock formations. Krabi is probably one of the prettiest spots in Thailand and offers so much to the traveller. We had never seen so many fishes. And the water is very warm and comfortable at 29′deg’C!

We booked with www.KrabiDivers.com for our day out. They came to the hotel to pick us up. Taking off from Naphorat Pier just 5 minutes from the beachside town of Ao Nang, we hopped onto a quaint traditional long-tail boat that took us out to the big boat. Thereafter, it was just a 15 minute ride out on the sundeck as we soaked in some glorious sunshine with the warm sea breeze in our faces.  And for the next 4 hours, we were treated to several snorkel spots off the Krabi National Marine Park which features numerous limestone mountains that sit proudly in the water. After a wonderful afternoon, we were taken by longtail back to the pier and then back to the hotel. All this for a great afternoon, and reasonably priced at only 1,000 baht (about 20 Euros). The crew on the KrabiDivers.com boat were really friendly and fun and we had a wonderful time.
