    Crocman in Samui

    So awhile ago I posted that the Dragon Lady and I would be in Samui and that I would try to fit some diving in,well here is a little report on what I managed.
    After landing,we spent a couple of days getting the Breather of Fire settled in and acclimatised so that I could bugger off diving safe in the knowledge that she wouldn't be terrorising the locals with her dragonlike ways.
    I booked to go out with The Dive Academy for five dives over two days.As I had been informed earlier by other TD divers I had a two hour boat ride out to the dive sites at Koh Tao,but with flat seas and fine skies with was very pleasurable especially on the way home.
    The sites I dived were Mango Bay,Aow Leuk,Chumpon Pinnacle,Shark Island and Mango Bay again.
    Bophut Beach.Where our boat left from each morning

    Crocman on the way
    Fellow divers and instructors

    The next few pics are my very first attempts at underwater photography.I borrowed a camera,a Sony point and shoot thingy in a housing.Half way through the dive I realised I hadn't turned the bloody thing on.Anyway here are my humble offerings.(don't be too harsh)

    The beach in the first pic looks like Fisherman's Village.

    It is Fisherman's Village, no doubt.

    Certainly is Fishermans Village.The Dive Academy work out of the Bandara resort which is where our boat left from each morning.Apparently the poor guests are awfully put out by the clinking noise tanks make when they hit something,not in the morning but rather in afternoon when we returned.Strange buggers.Anyway sorry for the state of the post but for some reason I had a hell of a time resizing and placing these pics.I know I posted more pics than this. I think I may have even posted some on top of others,if that is possible.I will try to have it sorted by the time I do a post on Koh Samui and also Phuket.

    Thanks for the post. Hope you enjoyed the u/w camera. Nice pic's. 4 hour round trip each day is a heck of a trip. But you had some nice dive sites.
