St Patrick’s Day starts early at Krabi this year!

Posted in Articles, Events, News, Promotions |

After the infamous St PADI night in Leks Bar 2 years ago, I think we are
all ready for another MAD ONE. So get those drinking booties on and get down to AONANG SEA OF LOVE PLAZA in AO  NANG Krabi (opposite the one and only McDonalds) this Sunday March 16th.

Join the 1st Annual Open Whiskey diver course.  This course qualifies you as a Specialty Irish Diver qualified to drink with any level of ALCO from another country. The St PADI special edition card will gain you entry into any low class bar anywhere in the world. No need for DSD - Desperately Seeking a Drink. Specialties are a must for anyone seeking long term employment in the Thai dive industry. Most dive shop owners have already passed this strict course with flying colours.

To celebrate St Patty’s – our party starts at the touch of dusk this Sunday March 16th – only so we can revell into the night and into the morning to welcome St Patty’s on Mar 17th.

If you are holidaying, working or just happen to be in Ao Nang KRABI THAILAND – just come over to the SEA OF LOVE PLAZA in AO NANG. Anytime after dusk falls.

EVERYONE IS WELCOME! We’re happy to make new friends.

Come for some food  and guaranteed cheapest beers in town!

International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day (8 March) is an occasion marked by women’s groups around the world. This date is also commemorated at the United Nations and is designated in many countries as a national holiday. When women on all continents, often divided by national boundaries and by ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic and political differences, come together to celebrate their Day, they can look back to a tradition that represents at least nine decades of struggle for equality, justice, peace and development.

KrabiDivers.com is happy to contribute our little bit as a tribute to all women.

Stop Shark Finning

Posted in Articles, Events, News |

Stop Shark Finning

Shark Finning – It is estimated that many tens of millions of sharks are killed each year solely for their fins. While shark meat is popular in many markets, it is the large and growing demand for shark fin soup – an Asian delicacy that can sell for as much as $100 a bowl – that is now driving fisheries for the species. Many shark populations are already in significant decline, in large part due to the high numbers caught unintentionally in other fisheries combined with the species exceptionally low reproductive potential. The decline in many of the world’s sharks presents a food security issue in some regions and, because of their role as an apex predator, is expected to have significant impacts on marine food webs.

Stop Shark Finning, Don’t Eat Fin Soup!
