MV Giamani Trip Log: 23-29 December 2012
Port of departure: Phuket Island
Weather Conditions: Sunshine and flat seas
The trip started with a report of a looming storm and strong winds, this seemed to be the case with rocky conditions in Chalong Bay. However, as we set off the sea calmed down and we woke to sunshine and flat seas in Similan. The good weather continued for the whole trip, blotted only by a couple of evening rain showers.
Underwater the conditions were also good with very good visibility and mild currents. On Koh Tachai we were joined by Manta rays and at Richelieu Rock we found Seahorse, Pineapple Fish and a Ribbon Eel as well as the habitual schools of Barracuda and Trevally.
