MV Giamani Trip Log: 30 Dec 2012 – 5 January 2013.
Port of departure: Phuket Island.
Weather Conditions: Mixed.
Strange weather on this trip, every day was half rain and wind and half blazing sunshine and calm seas and the order they came in alternated daily. Being just after full moon we had some strong currents on this trip. The ribbon eel was back at West of Eden and we had our first sighting of Hump Head Parrot fish at torinla Ridge in the Surin Islands. As ever the wreck dives were full of macro life, nudibranchs, cleaner shrimp and hermit crabs.
The old year ended a few hours early on MV Giamani with Fire works and fizzy wine allowing everyone the chance to get some rest before another great day of diving.
