December 2005 - Cave Diving Expedition To Krabi

In December 2005 three technical divers, Bruce Konefe, Cedric Verdier and Mike Gadd, were on a cave diving expedition to Krabi. The first part of the trip was in a National Park based on floating bamboo huts (a photo of their floating camp looks like Tone Teuy in Khao Sok National Park in Surat Thani) and all diving equipment had to be brought in. Exploring the area by long-tailed boat, passing nothing but limestone walls and cliffs, a cave entrance at water level was found after an hour. Two reels of line were laid in this beautiful cave at a maximum depth of 28m.

Just back from another trip to Nam Nao National Park and nearby areas in north central Thailand. There were nine of us on this trip (Martin, Ivan, Paul, Tiggy, Phil, Geraldine, Dave O, Fig and Floyd), the most we've had on a visit to Thailand since the April 2003 Umphang expedition.
