Great Low Season Diving

A question we are always asked at this time of year is “Can we go diving in the low season?”

The answer is always weather dependent all year round but the low season diving can be sometimes better than high season!

Both of these videos were taken in the last few weeks and show that there is a lot of beautiful marine life out there.

So don’t put off your holiday till the high season come right now in low season and get some great diving done.

We look forward to seeing you soon

What is technical diving?

Scuba divers get to explore parts of the world that most people will never have the opportunity of seeing other than maybe in a documentary. But even divers are sometimes limited to where they can go and what they can see. PADI TecRec courses can open up opportunities to experience new dive sites and areas beyond the recreational realm.PADI TEC REC logo Continue reading What is technical diving?

The dive team at Aqua Vision are working together with the Shark Guardian organisation, and to assist them in their research, we are logging all of our dives, ( even the dives when we don’t encounter sharks provide useful info!) , at, so that they can get the right information about the numbers of sharks and rays in our local waters.

As Shark Guardian is a charitable organization, Aqua Vision are offering Shark Guardian merchandise for sale so that they can continue to do their great work, which is all about educating the younger and older generations that sharks are a vital part of the ocean eco-system and important for everyone’s future.

Shark Guardian and Aqua VisionCall into the Aqua Vision Dive Center in Ao Nang to pick up a Shark Guardian t-shirt or wristband, and help save the Sharks while looking cool at the same time.


Whale Shark / Manta Ray Diving in Krabi, Thailand.

The Andaman Sea is famous for mega fauna encounters with giant manta rays and whale sharks, we have made around 30 trips to the world famous Hin Daeng / Hin Muang dive sites between October 2013 and April 2014.

The sites are in the open ocean a distance of about 100 km from Ao Nang, and are located within 500 meters of each other. Here you can see everything that lives in Southeast Asia, all varieties of reef fauna; barracuda, trevally, large groupers, giant moray eels, stingrays, leopard sharks, beautiful corals and anemones.

And of course, what makes these sites famous all over the world are regular visits by whale sharks and manta rays. Manta rays come to the reefs to use the cleaning stations, and from November to April, you can usually see several of them circling around the reefs at shallow depths!

This season these sites have been chock full of mantas, and quite often whale sharks too.  We are hoping for another successful season with manta rays and whale sharks for 2014/2015, and we hope that you are on one of these special trips to see these magnificent creatures with us.

Дайвинг в Таиланде.Где нырять?

В Таиланде есть несколько районов для дайвинга. Это Сиамский залив, в котором весь дайвинг в основном сосредоточен вокруг Ко Тао. И это Андаманское море, которое омывает западное побережье Таиланда. На севере это знаменитые Симиланские острова и Сурин со скалой Решилье. Дальше на юг расположены дайв-сайты провинции Краби, где я имею удовольствие жить и работать. Рядом с Малайзией расположен Национальный парк Тарутао и остров Липе. Где тоже есть где понырять. Здесь я хочу рассказать о дайвинге в Краби. Если вы приедете в Краби и будете жить на курорте Ао Нанг, то для вас будут доступны локальные острова залива Ао Нанг, острова Пи-Пи, Шарк Пойнт (Shark Point), лагуна Ко Хаа и рифы Хин Денг/Хин Муанг.
