Scuba Diving at Koh Bida

I don't often get the chance to go diving, so it was lovely to be invited along with Andaman Dive Adventures on Friday.

Normally if I have a day to dive, I usually choose Koh Haa with the brilliant blue and clear waters and the caverns and caves. However this time Andaman Dive Adventures were going to the new wreck (scuttled for diving) at Koh Phi Phi and the Bida islands, where there is always plenty to see.

Half way to the first dive, the boat suddenly comes to an abrupt halt, which usually means there is an issue with the boat or there is something interesting in the waters. Luckily for us, it was the later, and we had 10 minutes watching a 4 metre Whaleshark from the surface.

This was my first time using a Go Pro and my first time editing, so excuse the obvious mistakes but you can see that whilst the water is much greener at the Bida Islands (just off of Koh Phi Phi) the plethora of food means there is loads of aquatic life. There were many large schools of fish, as well as a tiny Pipefish, Blue Spotted Rays, Puffer Fish and a lovely baby Leopard Shark.

Whilst is was my first dive for over a year, it was Rebecca's first dive ever! And as you can see she loved it.

Many thanks to all the crew at Andaman Dive Adventures that made it such a great day, probably should not leave it so long next time!
