The 2019-2020 scuba diving season at Thailand’s Similan Islands is officially half way through. We have had 3.5 months of awesome diving and wonderful guests, and we look forward to 3.5 more months of the same. So far the big news this season is the huge amount of cartilaginous species, including Whale Sharks, Manta Rays, Guitar Sharks and more! The cold water temperature has also raised a few eyebrows, but we feel that is what’s bringing so much interesting marine life nearer to the surface. And finally, the Chinese coronavirus has caused some people to worry unnecessarily. There are no problems with any guests or staff so far, and we don’t expect any to arise. It’s been a great season so far, and long may it continue.
