So, inward illustration y'all don't know .. I am director at Phuket Thailand-blogger">About Jamie page on this blog! I don't dive much these days, but cause got logged almost 1,500 dives over the years. My married adult woman is a certified diver likewise too is a really relaxed diver. My immature lady has done some petty scuba endeavor outs inward the pool. My boy simply turned 10 this yr too officially y'all should non allow kids nether 10 to scuba dive, thence nosotros were waiting ... And at the terminate of Apr nosotros institute a gratis day, the weather condition looked good, too the kids were excited to larn that I'd booked us all for a 24-hour interval trip to Phuket Thailand-blogger">Racha Yai Island. We cause got been at that spot earlier on a weekend trip (staying inward a hotel), too I cause got dived at that spot perhaps 100 times, but at nowadays the kids are one-time plenty - it's fourth dimension to dive!

(above) On the dive boat too create to go. Trips depart from Chalong Bay. We met at Chalong pier almost 8am too it was almost 8:30am when nosotros laid off. It takes almost xc minutes on a dive boat to reach Racha Yai Island. The dive boats inward this surface area are quite large, cause got upper deck seating areas too some cause got a smaller indoor (aircon) saloon area. So it's pretty comfortable, y'all are non sitting amongst the dive gear on a bench! Also, breakfast is provided, along amongst unlimited coffee, tea, too drinking water. I allow the identify unit of measurement relax piece I ready all our scuba gear (OK, my honey married adult woman helped a bit). Only took almost fifteen minutes to acquire four sets of gear too four weight belts ready, too thence I could bring together everyone upstairs for a loving cup of tea.

When y'all brand it at Racha Yai, where y'all dive depends a chip on the conditions. As far every bit possible, if at that spot is no potent northeast wind, it's best to dive on the E side of the island. It was non at all a windy day, thence nosotros started on the E coast amongst beautiful bluish water. Visibility underwater hither varies from fifteen meters upwards to 30+ meters yr circular unless the weather condition is genuinely bad! Much of the time, fifty-fifty inward depression season, it looks similar this ...

There were almost twenty on the boat including four or five instructors leading unlike groups of divers from unlike countries. I figured we'd cause got our fourth dimension getting create every bit it would hold upwards the kids root dive inward the sea. It feels a petty odd wearing scuba gear for the root fourth dimension too fifty-fifty stranger i time y'all start breathing through a regulator underwater!

Wet suits on, weight belts on, sit down downward on the bench, strap into the BCD too and thence stagger to the dive platform carrying all that weight! Fins are the terminal affair to set on, every bit y'all don't desire to hold upwards walking around wearing fins. I helped the kids amongst adjusting their gear. Checked everything was turned on too create to become ....

After a few teething problems ... both kids would become downward a brace of meters too and thence dot to me that they wanted to become upwards over again .. "my ears experience funny" or "my mask is loose" .. After almost five minutes nosotros all descended to almost vii meters nether water, downward to the sand, too the kids looked OK, if a petty awkward (you usually create await a chip awkward on a root become at anything!), thence nosotros started to swim around. I did non cause got them deeper than almost ix meters. My married adult woman has non logged likewise many dives but is a natural mermaid :) I did non cause got an underwater camera, every bit I knew I'd cause got to overstep away on both eyes on the kids. Instructors should hold upwards using their eyes to aid for students, non taking photos! But nosotros saw plenty of marine life ..

(above) We saw all of these too to a greater extent than - moray eel, scorpionfish, clownfish, pufferfish, triggerfish, bannerfish, lionfish too more. Always plenty of life at Racha Yai! Many cheers to Simon Ilett (a dive teacher working inward Phuket Thailand) for the photos. Our root dive was almost 35 minutes too I was relieved that it had all gone smoothly! My kids are at nowadays divers! These 24-hour interval trips cause got two dives amongst tiffin inward between. The boat was moved piece nosotros ate lunch, my boy had his olfactory organ inward a fish identification mass too both kids were pleased amongst themselves too create to dive again. We had our 2d dive inward Siam Bay on the due south terminate of Racha Yai.

There are some underwater elephant statues here, but they are downward almost 18m deep, too our depth (for root fourth dimension divers) was a maximum of 12m. We genuinely did non become deeper than almost vii meters on the 2d dive, swimming around inward the shallows for 45 minutes. Could cause got stayed quite a lot longer, but it would hold upwards rude to delay the boat :) On the 2d dive the kids were really comfortable, checking out marine life, enjoying life underwater. 45 minutes went yesteryear really fast. After nosotros were dorsum on the boat too I got all the gear stowed away, the kids were already bespeak "when tin nosotros become again?" We volition for sure become over again soon. Diving mightiness non seem similar difficult work, but I tin enjoin you, combined amongst a 24-hour interval out on the water, when y'all breathe compressed air too send dive gear too swim underwater .. it genuinely is expert exercise! Both kids slept inward the aircon saloon on the mode dorsum to Chalong Bay. Influenza A virus subtype H5N1 bang-up 24-hour interval out. Anyone wants to dive, contact me at Sunrise Divers or y'all tin banking concern friction match the High German website : Tauchen inward Phuket Thailand! Thanks also to Noon at Local Dive Thailand for letting us become on her boat :)
