Hawksbill Turtle, Similan Islands, Thailand
In the past few seasons a lot of attention has been drawn to the state of the Similan Island Dive Sites. To a small level the 2004 Tsunami, but most significantly the coral bleaching that affected much of S.E. Asia has had a extraordinary impact on Thailand’s dive sites, leaving some areas in a disappointing and sad state. The Similan Islands, once known as one of the top ten dive destinations in the world has lost some of it’s glow nowadays.
