2nd May: Offspray adventure to Phi Phi

Dive 64: Bida Nai, Phi Phi Islands
Max Depth: 17.9m ; Bottom time: 43 min
Water Temp: 30c; Visibility: 10m
Dive featured a Blacktip reef shark (1.5m) & green turtle. Coral garden was spectacular as always, and school of blue-lined snappers hung around atop the staghorn coral field, trying to fend off attacks by jack trevallies from the blue.

Dive 65: Table corals City, Phi Phi Le*
Max Depth: 16.1m ; Bottom time: 50 min
Water Temp: 30c; Visibility: 10m
Comment: My first dive here at this dive site. It's a gem! Nicely
stacked cement cubes to creating a pyramid like artificial reef. Table corals, sea fans, and staghorns are healthy in shallows, right up to 3-4m along the wall. Marine life feature: friendly tiera batfishes, 4 different versions of anemone fish (western clownfish, clark's anemone, tomato anemone, and skunk anemone). Video of "Lavena & the clownfish" below:
