Green Rock to Japanese Gardens

Green Rock to Japanese Gardens

This Dive came about by chance, the wind Gods were against us and the Dive Site had to be changed from Twins to Japanese Gardens.. Having a Group of confident Divers the decision was made to tackle the long unexplored east coat line of Koh Nanguang.

Descending in to a lovely 31 degrees an 20+ Meter Visibility We all knew this would be interesting, the combination of Big boulder swim throughs to shallow soft Corel Beds that were covered in hundreds of energetic Fish, I knew I had finally found that dive site that I had dreamed about for years before moving to Koh Tao.

To find a site that had survived the last 20 years of heavy recreational Diving an still have that breath taking impression it reminded Me why I do My job an really appreciate this tropical paradise that I call home..

After 77 mins of exploring all depths from 16m right up to 5m it was time to end this dream dive. The smiles and energy on the Boat afterwards was infectious, it was amazing how one Dive really set the mood on an unusual overcast day on Tao.

I cannot wait for round two on the marathon Dive, Green Rock to Japanese Gardens.
