What we see in the blue

Sharks of the World on iPhone

July 8th, 2009 | Posted by NK in Stuff - (1 Comments)

The original “Sharks of the World Field Guide” by Save Our Seas Foundation is now ready for the iPhone as a free application.
All 440 species of sharks are in there, so it should soon be a must bring for diving trips…  maybe not in Denmark..

The Sharks of the World Field Guide can be found in the App Store, search for “Sharks Guide” which is also the name of it in App Store.

Diving with the guys at Coral Grand Divers has both its upside and downsides – the downside is definately that the leave too early for the morning dives (before 07.00), but the upside is the great service, then nice people and the fact that we are usually the first people at the divesite, which is GREAT at Chumphon Pinnacles, because the sharks hasnt been ’scared’ away. Diving at Chumphon Pinnacles on 18th August was no exception – the sharks was sort of waiting for us and our divemaster took us directly out to them – what a great sight seeing sharks at Chumphon Pinnacles – they were around 2 meters in size…
It seems like the trick is to go there early and you’ll see 8-10 sharks there… of course not too close up.. sharks isnt that nosy… 😉

Last time I was at Chumphon Pinnacles it seems like we came to late, but luckily Chumphon Pinnacles has more that just sharks to ‘offer’…

Yes, they didnt come too close, but it was great and its not the last time I’m going to visit Koh Tao and Chumphon Pinnacles – Koh Tao is really a nice place to stay, which I’ll tell more about later.
