Woo Hoo!! I finally got back out on the boat today. We went on my boat to Koh Tao with a fun group. I had two discover scuba students, View and Dta, and we had a great day. It was really hot though so I couldn’t wait to get in the water to cool off. As soon as we got to Mango Bay I jumped right in off the front of the boat. Didn’t even wait. The conditions were excellent also. I took my two students along with my mom and dad to Mango Bay. Nick had his two Scuba diver students Marcello and Pedro also. The conditions were beautiful with about 12 meter viz. Thao and Tak took the experienced divers to Hin Wong Pinnacle which was about 15 meter viz and really nice and they got to see a turtle. Seems we see turtles everyday now. For the second dive we went to Twins, which was outstanding. About 15 meters there and lots of morays, filefish, sting rays and more. There was even a huge shark with big old teeth at twins, but I punched him in the nose and I think I killed him because he didn’t move after that. that was good, because then everyone could take pictures next to him. Of course make sure you take a look at the handsome guy jumping off of the boat.
I’ll leave you with some pictures of the day and I can’t wait to get back on the boat again.

Hey Everyone. Sorry for the late post today, but last night was a rough one. You think it’s tough to do tequila shots out of a glass? Try doing them out of a bowl. Not a toilet bowl where the lower class dogs drink, but a regular drinking bowl. Needless to say I was mao mak mak. I just woke up and it is 5:00 pm already. That was some party at the dogpound last night. I think I am going to stay in tonight as I have 2 students on the boat tomorrow to take care of.
Well, our boat today went to Sail Rock, but the conditions were not that good. So, as we are very focused on out customers being happy we moved for the second dive to Shark Island which was outstanding. Sail Rock was about 5 meter viz, and Shark Island was about 20 meters. I think we are going to stay with diving at Koh Tao for the next few days until Sail Rock clears up. Either way it was a fun crew on the boat today and everyone was really happy. Congratulations to Ricky on completing his advanced open water course with James.
I’ve attached a picture of what I look like this morning and also some of the pictures from our diving day. I’m going back to bed.

Well, today I need to write this quickly as I am at the spa today getting my haircut, manicure, pedicure and bath. I got to look good as there are going to be a lot of bitches (I can say that as a dog), at the boneyard tonight. Deng Mo, Tong naam and me are going partying, but I need to quit a little bit early tonight as I am going diving tomorrow. Woo Hoo. It has been too long. I’ll make sure to take a lot of pictures to share tomorrow. I hope the sea water doesn’t mess up my hair.
The weather here is more of the same which is great. If it is like this all year I’ll be a happy dog. Hot and dry with no wind and no waves. Perfect diving weather. Today we had two boats to Koh Tao. One boat with the experienced divers went to Chumphon Pinnacle and Southwest Pinnacle, and the other boat went to Mango Bay, Twins, and shark island. Chumphon was beatiful with 15 meter viz and lots and lots of fish. Southwest viz was down a little bit from the day before at 10-15 meters. Mango bay was nice at 15 meters as well as twins. Shark island was 20 meters and absolutely stunning.
The gang on the boats were so much fun today and they all had a lot of fun not just diving, but on the rides back. I saw some of them getting together after for drinks. Not sure why I wasn’t invited. Tomorrow we will have a trip to Sail Rock and one to Koh Tao.
Well, off to get law maak (handsome in Thai).

Yo, yo, yo. What up peeps? Another beautiful day here in Koh Samui. I love this time of year as the weather is perfect. A great time for me to hang out on the beach and steal food from all the tourists who go in the water to cool off. I’ve gotten pretty good at this ripping off food thing.
So, you’re probably wondering about the diving. The diving the last couple days has been SPECTACULAR. Today we ran both of our boats to Koh Tao, with one boat full of our experienced divers going to Chumphon Pinnacle and Southwest Pinnacle. the conditions at both were great with Chumphon about 20 meters and 15 meters at Southwest Pinnacle. Our other boat went to Mango bay (15 meters), Twins (20 meters) and Shark Island (15 meters). I can’t believe that I spent my time on the beach and not the boat. Especially now as we have very little wind and virtually no waves.
Congratulations to Senja and Andrew on completing their open water course and to Ralf on completing his Advanced open water course. Now that the winds are changing I expect Sail Rock to start clearing up and that will be awesome.
Ok, I’m getting hungry so time to go grab some more chicken off the beach.

Hey everyone, Another great day here at Discovery. Today we had 2 boats out. One to Sail Rock and one to Koh Tao. The conditions at Sail Rock were just ok with 5-8 meter visibility. At Koh Tao we went to Mango bay which had 10 meter viz, Twins which was about 8 meters and Green Rock which was 10 meters. There were still a little bit of waves which made for a little bumpy ride, but the good news is that seems to be at the end and the winds have already died down and are supposed to die down more everyday. I am gearing up myself to get back out on the boat hopefully Wednesday or Thursday. I haven’t dove in about a month and can’t wait to get back in the water.
Today we had Colin, Rochelle, and Ralf doing their advanced course with Axel, and Svenja taking her first breaths underwater doing her open water course with Nicola. At the shop I was assisting James who was starting an open water course with Andrew and Arno was starting a scuba diver course with Arnaud (yes, same name) and Anne.

Hey, I’m back!! I know it’s been a long time since I wrote my blog, but I had an injury to my front paw and could not type. I tried to dictate to my friend Deng Mo, but she doesn’t really know how to type in English and it was just a mess. But, I am back now to let you guys know about everything going on at Discovery.
Wow, since my last blog a lot has changed. I now have a baby brother, Jagger, who is already swimming and will start his baby open water course soon. I will be the instructor of course. We also have both of our speedboats back on the water again so that we can get everyone to more dive sites daily.
I will try to put up the pictures from the day now, so that you can check them out here as well as the daily conditions.
Today we did two dives at Koh Tao and the conditions weren’t bad. Mango Bay was about 10-15 meters, White Rock 5-10 and Hin Wong Bay was about 5-10. Everyone had a good time, but the ride back was a little wavy as the winds picked up. The good news is the winds are supposed to die down everyday going forward and we should get into that beautiful spring weather we are known for.
