It was such a great feeling to spend time with Dani - our dive master, who was able without any push to give us all the knowledge for SASI course we were taking. The diving sites are simply amazing.

If you want to see Richelieu Rock (and you should), this is a safe bet. We were very lucky to see several ocean mantas at Koh Tachai on our trip, and enjoyed a lecture about them from a visiting researcher from MMF.
