Whaleshark! It's a great season for Big Spotty Fish!

whale shark1300x225More Whalesharks than you can throw a stick at this week with sightings at Chumphon Pinnacle, Southwest Pinnacle Shark Island Sail Rock & White Rock! April it is typically Whaleshark season here in Koh Tao so we haven't been let down! And bearing in mind May & June are usually pretty good months for Whaleshark sightings too it looks like we could be in for a very successful Whaleshark season. Fingers & Fins crossed!

New Promotion for Mini who will now join our Mentor Team at Big Blue Pro

mini300x225Mini Ant used to be a big shot Architect with many of his fine erections scattered throughout London & was offered a job by one of the UK's largest building firms but turned them down in order to become a Big Blue Diving DMT! Could have been a disastrous decision for Ant but luckily he excelled at his DM Training & went straight on to become an SSI Instructor and was immediately offered a job by another Dive shop on Koh Tao before we told them to bugger off! "He's ours!" Now works as one of our Full Time SSI & PADI Instructor's in our Big Blue Pro Mentor Team Ant is still trying to keep his eye in the architectural game & totally designed our Mothership MV Waverunner. A bit of elbow grease here and a bit of imagination there & Ant has gone & created another fine erection!

Whaelshark at White Rock this morning

21.01.17Neil Anne300x225Another Whaleshark was dived with at White Rock this morning making this our 30th Dive of the year so far with a Whaleshark. Which makes it a statistical average of 1 whaleshark dive every 3 days for 2017. Not a bad average. Which also does go to show that Whalesharks do seem to be growing again in their numbers. Not quite to the extent of days of old but probably the best so far. In days of old if you talk to the old Thai Fishermen they would fish around Koh Tao & see Whalesharks in their 10's. The increase in Shark fin soup seems to have been the major factor for the loss in numbers over the last couple of decades but now that Shark Fin soup is becomming less popular due to worldwide condemnation & outrage we keep our fingers crossed that the Whaleshark numbers will once again rise to their 10's per whaleshark sighting. 'Fins'gers crossed!

Saturday April 1st 2017

train300x225At long last the board of directors for the Gulf of Thailand have approved the long awaited plan for the underwater tunnel that will link the 3 island of Koh Samui, Koh Phangan & Koh Tao to the mainland. The tunnel will start from the Mainland hub in Surat Thani then it will be a mere 10 minute drive to oh Samui, another 10 minutes to Koh Phangan then it'll take about 30 minutes to Koh Tao & then from there to Chumphon should only take about 45 minutes. The designer of the plan Mr Yu Bin Had said the tunnel should be completed within 5 years, about the same time as the Koh Tao airport opens!

Scuba Diving with Blacktips

P1040227300x225Awesome week of diving so far. While one boat went out in search of the Whaleshark which they found at Chumphon Pinnacle this morning another of our Diveboats went out & found a meter long Blacktip Reef Shark at Shark Island. Blacktips aren't often encountered when Scuba Diving as the noise of your breathing scares them off but today we were very lucky & encountered this beauty. A meter long as well which is a decent size for a Blacktip.
