July 21st is the 4th Annual PADI’s Women Day

July 21st is the 4th Annual PADI’s Women Day.

Over the past week and leading up to today, Crystal Dive Koh Tao in conjunction with Eco Koh Tao have highlighted the significant and influential role that Women play in the scuba diving industry.

Our passionate ladies are dedicated to making the world a better place through their role as a PADI Diver or Professional.

They have raised awareness of scuba diving within their communities across the planet and inspired more people to pursue their passions by following their dreams to explore, protect and experience the underwater world.

We all have a role to play in preserving our Ocean planet.

Check out this pinktail triggerfish in the waters around Koh Tao
Check out this pinktail triggerfish in the waters around Koh Tao.

There are 40 species of triggerfish scattered throughout the world’s seas.

These bottom dwellers dig out prey, such as crabs and worms, by flapping away debris with their fins and sandblasting with water squirted from their mouths. They also use very tough teeth and jaws to take on sea urchins, flipping them over to get at their bellies, which are armed with fewer spines.

Cuttlefish - DID YOU KNOW?
DID YOU KNOW?

Cuttlefish have not one, not two, but three hearts! Two hearts are used to pump blood to the cuttlefish's large gills, and the third heart is used to circulate oxygenated blood to the rest of the body. Speaking of cuttlefish blood, even that's interesting.

If you know any more facts and would like to share please let us all know. Just simply comment below...

Have you met Steve? Our blackspotted porcupinefish that lives at Junkyard Reef
Have you met Steve? Our blackspotted porcupinefish that lives at Junkyard Reef.

Porcupine fish live in mild to warm oceans all over the world. Their bodies are covered in spines, and they can swallow air or water to puff themselves up.

Not many animals eat porcupine fish because of their spines and their poisonous skin.

Look at this Box Jellyfish at South West Pinnacle cruising around with its entourage!!
Look at this Box Jellyfish at South West Pinnacle cruising around with its entourage!!

South west of Koh Tao, this dive site is widely acclaimed and regarded as another of the Gulf’s premier diving destinations. With a maximum depth of around 30m this site consists of a series of seven pinnacles that form an underwater mountain range, with the largest peak rising to within 5m of the surface.

You will see Cobias and Razorfish and there are several Giant grouper that hang out in the shadows at the deeper depths. If you spend some time looking carefully between the rocks and coral formations it is common to see Blue Spotted Ribbontail Rays and White Eyed Moray Eels. Look very closely and you will see amazing glass cleaner shrimps in the hundreds anemones or boxer shrimps in the cracks between the rock.

Unlike neighbouring Koh Samui and Koh Phangan, Koh Tao remained untouched by tourism for many years
Unlike neighbouring Koh Samui and Koh Phangan, Koh Tao remained untouched by tourism for many years.

Then in the late 1980’s the first Samui based dive operators began running overnight live-aboard trips and were amazed by what they saw.

Crystal clear waters boasting an amazing array of colour and coral reefs alive with an incredible diversity of marine life. Divers began re-locating to Koh Tao realising they had uncovered a wealth of untouched beauty.

Here you can see a school of barracuda at Chumphon Pinnacle.
