Holiday's Over. Now, Koh Tao's High Season Kicks In!
Tuesday, 14 December 2010 05:25

Darius and I just got back from a short diving trip to Sulawesi in Indonesia. The first five days were spent filming the magical creatures of The Straits of Lembeh. We stayed at Two Fish Resort where the managers were friends from Koh Tao. Helen completed her Dive Instructor course with Darius at Buddha View a few years ago, and her and Gizmo ensured that we had a great time diving in Indonesia.

The local dive guides were fantastic at spotting all of the water's “weird creatures” and we were lucky enough to see Hairy Frogfish, Mimic Octopus, Wonderpus, a Blue-ringed Octopus, Pygmee Seahorses, Ambon Scorpionfish and loads more in the black sand of the Straits. Luckily, I brought my new Sony EX1R camera and Gates Housing and managed to get some great shots!

After a couple of days we travelled to Bunaken to stay at Living Colours Dive Resort. This was a great place tucked away in the mangroves. We had some great wall dives with the healthiest coral I’ve seen in ages and what must be the biggest green turtle on the planet! The owner, Jaako, was very accommodating and has asked Oceans Below to return soon to film a promotional video for them. Yet another two Koh Tao friends, Al and Annika, work at Living Colours and it was nice to catch up with them.

Now we're back to work and Autumn started a new BSAC Professional HD Underwater Videographer course on the 2nd of December. The second day in the water, the video trainees were already lucky enough to film their first turtle! We also hear that there have been numerous Whaleshark sightings. Hopefully, the guys will get a chance to film them during the video internships. We're all looking forward to a great new season!
