Yeah, unfortunately my trip to Cambodia and Sihanoukville didn’t bring me any new diving experiences. Not because I didn’t want to dive, not because I didn’t have the time to dive (we we’re there for 10 days) and not because Sihanoukville didn’t have some good and experienced dive centers, but just because we were in Sihanoukville a bit to early in the local dive season.
I was already warned before we left – I had already seen that the dive centers in Sihanoukville was telling that the dive season started around beginning November, but I had hoped for some dives in mid/end October when I arrived – that was not possible for several reasons.
First of all the dive centers in Sihanoukville decided to use the off-season for repairing their nice boats and used the rests for 2-3 days trips and secondly a tough storm (just before we arrived) made the visibility on the nearby dive sites a bit of a gamble… what I really liked here was that ALL dive centers in Sihanoukville were so nice and honest to tell us that they either wouldn’t take us diving at all or that they would recommend waiting a week more… or so…
So no diving… seems like the diving in Sihanoukville start from November!
But but… being on a honeymoon we decided to take a trip with a really nice boat, which also included some nice snorkeling – more about that later.
