What we see in the blue

It was a Cuttlefish I found diving outside Koh Chang

March 16th, 2010 | Posted by admin in Thailand

In my last blog post I was looking for help in identifying a fish, squid or octopus thats I took some photos of while diving outside Koh Chang….. in fact I also used my Twitter and Facebook account to ask around… and I got lots of ideas…
But it was Wim from Divingscool on Koh Chang that told me it was a Cuttlefish – thanx Wim!

    Thanks for the reference! Next time you’re on the island you should stop by our shop one time.

    Happy Bubbles


  • A nice picture. These cuttle fishs are often seen while scuba diving on Koh Chang in Thailand.

    You are welcome Wim.

    And thanx – I’m come around next time Koh Chang is on the list..


  • Maybe a good suggestion. This year I’ve been to the island of Koh Lipe in Thailand. This island is located 70km off the Andaman (west) coast of Thailand’s most southwestern province, Satun Province and shines out among some of Thailand’s most beautiful, and unforgettable environments.

    I had a great time on Lipe and there was a lot to do like snorkeling, shopping and eating in good quality restaurants and bars. I found my resort on Koh Lipe on http://www.welovekohlipe.com, where you can also check out more information about Koh Lipe and the surrounding areas. I can really recommend Koh Lipe for a nice relaxing holiday in paradise!

  • Dear DiveBlogging,

    If you’re into cuttlefish, you should check out the wonderful Nova documentary, Kings of Camouflage. Cuttlefish are the most colorful and psychedelic creatures I’ve ever seen and wait till you hear about their mating rituals! Video and still underwater photography have done so much to further the cause of ocean conservation.

    That’s why I’d like to let your readers know that The Nature Conservancy is holding its 6th Annual Digital Photo Competition. This year, it’s easier than ever to enter using your Facebook log-in info – http://photocontest.nature.org/ or through The Nature Conservancy’s Flickr Group – http://my.nature.org/photography/flickr.html.

    Original digital photos that feature the natural wonders of the lands, waters, plants, animals and people around the world are all eligible for the competition.

    This year at least 35 photos will be selected as honorable mentions and finalists, and our online community will vote for their favorite images to determine the winners. The grand prize winner will be featured on the cover of the 2013 Nature Conservancy calendar. Proceeds from calendar sales help support our many programs to protect wildlife and their habitats.

    Photographers will retain the rights to all their submissions. This competition is open to all photographers age 18 years or older regardless of residence or citizenship, as long as the laws of their jurisdiction allow participation. You can find more details at http://my.nature.org/photography/rules.html. Photo submissions must be uploaded by 11:59 pm PST Monday, September 12, 2011.

    Thank you,

    I didn’t get to go to Koh Lipe but I went to Koh Rok, Koh Muk, and Koh Phi Phi. I LOVED those places.
