Big Blue Conservation - Eco goes to the Similans!

It's the opening of this years season in the Similans, so the crew of Big Blue Conservation made their way across to sunny Khao Lak and boarded Big Blue's very own liveaboard boat, the MV Pawara. The 4 day trip included some ornate ghost pipefish, leopard sharks, seahorses, cuttlefish, octopus and many a colourful nudibranch!
The Similan Islands are part of a Marine National Park, where fishing activities are banned. With granite rocks and exposure to different currents, the west coast of Thailand has very different marine life compared to Koh Tao in the Gulf of Thailand. Lots of soft corals and granite rock formations dominate the aquatic landscape, and is frequently visited by large pelargics such as Manta Rays and the gentle Whaleshark.
So have a look at the pictures we took last week - you'll not want to miss out on this, so book your trip on the liveaboard now!
