The 2018-2019 Similan diving season had much to cheer about, been roundly observed as one of the most consistent and productive in recent years. Most notably was the coral regrowth and recovery shown in wide spread areas of the Similan Islands National Park. So what is this due too? Several key factors seem to playing a part in the recovery of this much loved national park.
Magnificent Mantas – Once Again on the MV Hallelujah. In just a few weeks Ric Parker will be heading into the Similan Marine National Park for his third presentation of See and Sea's 'Magnificent Mantas'. The Magnificent Manta Project was started by See and Sea in April 2014.
The Ray of Hope Expedition is just around the corner and we are preparing for the See and Sea projects that will take place while visiting the Moken in the Mergui Archipelago. The Moken are a seafaring nomadic community, often referred to as Sea Gypsies.
Following the success of the See and Sea Organisation’s first ever Manta Ray Education, Awareness and Research presentation, guests on the Similan liveaboard MV Oktavia were treated to an impromptu presentation after some great dives with Manta Rays at Koh Bon in the Similan Islands National Park.
In April 2014 See and Sea Org expanded their work in the Andaman Sea with the launch of a new Manta Ray conservation project, Magnificent Manta Rays. Based on the work of the Marine Megafauna Foundation, the new presentation is aimed at Manta Ray education, awareness and research.
