Similan Liveaboard Trip 14

I was back for my first trip of the new year and trip 14 to the Similan Islands was a cracker. Visibility was much clearer around the nine Similan Islands and water temperatures were noticeably warmer too.

Christmas Point was amazing on day two of our Similan liveaboard. One of those rare occasions when there was no current and with visibility at 40+ metres we were able to cover and see the entire huge site.

Koh Bon on the other hand was harder work with strong currents and the familiar ‘green monster’ thermoclines at play. There were some rewards, a white tip reef shark and a giant manta ray encounter for some groups.

Richelieu Rock was on epic form once again, proving to be the highlight for most divers on the boat. This small rock never ceases to amaze.

All in all a great tip and great to be back on the MV Blue Dolphin. I’ll be back in February for more. Take care till then. Ric
