Aug. 6-7, 2011 Overnight Trip to Samaesan

Posted on 06/24/11 3 Comments Hey Divers. Time to do something a little different. Looking at the Tide Charts we can see that August 5th, 2011, through the 8th we will have very favorable tides and currents. We at Adventure Divers are sponsoring an overnight camp aboard on the MV Saifon. We plan to leave Bali Hai Pier by 0800 Saturday morning, August 6th, 2011. Our destination will be the Bremen Wreck by around 1030 followed by an hour and half steam south, then Shark Fin Rock, a spectacular wall and unspoiled coral dive teeming with marine life. Then we will steam of for Samaesan and hit the docks sometime in the later afternoon, where we will buy straight from the incoming fishing boats a load of crustaceans, crabs, lobsters and fish for the barbeque on board later that evening. After a night Dive on the Hardeep Wreck we will enjoy our meal, have a few drinks and camp out on the boat. In the morning, after a quick breakfast we will dive the Hardeep Wreck again, then run out to Hin Salam and do another great coral dive. After lunch we will do another dive on Shark Fin Rock then we will go to the Samaesan pier where all who wish to go back to Pattaya will disembark and get into Songtows. The boat will stay overnight and should anyone be interested in another night dive on the Hardeep Wreck and an early morning dive at the Japanese Gardens then they may stay for the second night. A new crowd of day divers will board around 0930 and we will go out to the Hardeep Wreck, steam up to the Bremen Wreck while eating lunch, and after a nice wreck dive on the Bremen back to Bali Hai. The above trip is for Advanced Open Water Divers and above.

    Hi Robert,
    Thanks for a really great diving weekend in Samaesan. Not only was the diving great, but the whole “adventure” was not to be missed.The crew were first class and the food was excellent. The boat trip down South allowed a glimpse of this part of the coast which (because it is Navy or Army property)is out of bounds to the public. Looking forward to the next excursion.
    Well done to you and all of your staff.
