Murat, form Karsiyaka, Turkey, who has been diving with us on two occasions before for a few days at a time, came back to us mid January with the ambition to get closer to his Master Scuba Diver rating and together we decided this trip to get the PADI Wreck and Search and Recovery Specialties done. Doing our Search and Recovery we visited Kkoh Klung Bedan, where we were privileged to see a large (150 centimeter wing tip) Marble Ray (such as they are locally known but actually a Blotched fantail ray) and during the course of 5 days diving we visited Koh Rin, North Rock, Koh Man Wichai, Koh Krock , Koh Sak, Koh Pai, Hin Hu Chang and probably a few others plus the two wrecks, the HTMS Khram and the HTMS Kut. We had generally really good viz, up to 15 meters that week and nothing under 5 meters, except after a bunch of indiscreet divers passed on the wreck. We also worked on Murat’s buoyancy as he was complaining a little about that and got it to be really good. No kicking up silt while in the wrecks. Great job Murat. Now, Murat is interested in finishing off the Deep Specialty and the Underwater Digital Photography Specialty course and maybe even start the PADI Rescue Course on his next trip. Welcome to the Adventure Divers Family, Murat and see you soon


Some of the things we saw during our week together

and here is a quick video of Murat going through some of his paces. Hope you enjoy Murat!
