you west coast nancies might like your spotty fish and safe diving, but us Gulf of Siam men are real divers, not interested in sun tans and snaps, but real exploration, which is the heart of scuba diving - to me anyway.
People are different Jamie and most recreational scuba divers are happy enough exploring colorful reefs, looking at fishies and taking pics at comfortable depths with just 1 tank strapped on their back. They have no desire to go down to 70 meters with 3 tanks, spend 15 minutes on a pile of rust and hang for hours on a line decompressing. That's even the case in the Gulf, like it or not.
when was the last time you dived a site no-one had ever been to? King Cruiser,Elephant head? Eeerrrrr, Racha yai? The moray called Bob?
Most of the sites I've dived where no-one has ever dived before were absolutely crapulent. And believe me; I've dived a helluva lot of sites as a "first" in Thailand, Myanmar, India, Malaysia, Indonesia and Irian Jaya. Only rarely did those exploration dives show something good and exciting.
before you spit too much, don't forget this thread was supposed to be light hearted banter
The one spitting seems to be you.
