Come and join Sairee Cottage Diving on the 30th of June as we head out for a Dive Against Debris at two popular Koh Tao Dive sites Hin Wong Bay and Lighthouse Bay.
The day starts off at 10:30am with a briefing on Project Awares Dive Against Debris campaign and then we depart at 12:00pm on the Sairee Cottage Dive boat to our first destination Hin Wong Bay.
Hin Wong Bay is a large bay located on the east of Koh Tao, it offers sloping beach access great for open water courses and discover scuba divers. It is home to large schools of scads, many reef fish, octopus, squids and not to forget some amazing corals. Unfortunately Hin Wong Bay is also safe water for Thai fishing boats during storms which are part of an ongoing problem on Koh Tao with how they dispose of the rubbish. We expect this bay to be quite a challenge in regards to debris and will be splitting the teams with some teams focusing on smaller debris while other teams made up of the more experienced divers will be focusing on brining up large debris with lift bags
After Hin Wong Bay we plan to head around to Lighthouse bay a favorite with many of Koh Tao dive professionals for its spectacular untouched corals. We are not expecting Lighthouse Bay to be as much of a challenge as Hin Wong Bay giving us more time to appreciate the life forms that we are helping to protect.
Once we finish up at Lighthouse Bay it will be back to the dive shop to sort through the debris and record the data to upload to Project Aware and other agencies.
So if you'll be on Koh Tao on the 30th of June stop by Sairee Cottage Diving and get involved.
