2013 finds me again in the South China Sea, this time diving with Tech Thailand on the MV Giamani

 

 

For all the background on HMS Repulse and HMS Price of Wales please see the 2012 trip's page

   

The Dive deck was nice and spacious and the crew where always there to help with kitting up
Stuart and Simon where extremely helpful. Nothing was too much trouble
Time to get wet

Below we are making our way to the Deco Station

It was nice to be able to send up our stage cylinders during our deco, if required there was 100% Oxygen available to on the Bars

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sharing the MP3 player made the deco seem allot shorter especially where we had 1 hour on the wreck and a 2 hour ascent

 

Peter and Diane climb back aboard

Bryan who took so many Pictures for us all many thanks
Stuart after tying us onto the wreck
The local food on board was excellent
There is always a bigger fish waiting for its chance at an easy dinner

It is amazing considering how long the wrecks have been down, that there is a continuous stream of fuel oil surfacing

I would like to thank John for being a great dive buddy all week
