[singlepic id=11 w=320 h=240 float=left]What a fantastic month we all had in August her at Sairee Cottage Diving! A very busy few weeks and lots of happy divers, with the weather not being its best visibility is still great and plenty of cool sea life. Congratulations to Ida for becoming a Dive Pro and doing her SSI Dive Control Specialist; truly a great diver. Dan and Bear had a group of 11 Irish lads from the full moon rush who were awesome to teach and a great laugh thanks lads for making our job as good as it can be!. You can imagine the night out celebrating after becoming open water divers; it was carnage. To quote from our Facebook page:

Wreck Diving on Koh Tao

[singlepic id=17 w=320 h=240 float=left]The recently sunken naval ship wreck Sattakut 742, a 1943 built Thai Navy ship, has been moved to a more suitable location by the Thai Government. To move the wreck was necessary because it had fallen on the side. The bad weather conditions on the day of the sinking had it made difficult to sink the wreck exactly the way it was planned and it ended up to be in a bad position for wreck diving. the Sattakut 742 is the the second wreck, after the MV Trident, that has been sunk on Koh Tao to become an underwater attraction for fish and divers alike. On the 3rd of August it will be ready for scuba diving again! We can’t wait to start diving this fantastic wreck again, and especially teaching deep and wreck diving specialty courses, bring it on! Now the tide is high again and we have our Speed boat ready on the beach. This is going to be perfect for quick and easy trips to the dive site and what a cool way to do it Check out our dive boats here.

[singlepic id=7 w=320 h=240 float=right]With the full moon party just around the corner, which will bring many new faces to Koh Tao, we are looking forward to another great few weeks ahead. August has been one of the busiest month of this Season so far. This is a great time to start your Divemaster Course and make lots of new friends, which is exactly what Alina has done, another diving professional in the making. Check out the huge schools of Yellow Tail barracudas!

Video from the Sinking of the Sattakut 742

For those of you who missed the sinking of the Sattakut it June, we have added the video here. The weather was bad and there where several delays until the wrecked ship could finally be sunk, so it’s probably much more comfortable to watch the video…
