At the end of Jan 2020 I was fortunate enough to visit Myanmar on one of the last liveaboards before Covid shut down the borders and diving was halted. The 7 day trip aboard the Deep Andaman Queen was beautiful, with dives in Similan Islands & Surin Islands before crossing the border. Sadly it was most likely a La Niña year, with cold green water and limited visibility at most of the dive sites. It did however bring about a lot of stingrays and most excitingly, multiple observations of the newly described Ranong Guitarfish (Rhinobatos ranongensis). We also had multiple Blotched Stingrays, Jenkins Whiprays, Bluespotted Stingrays & Eagle Rays. Sadly no sharks or big Mantas on this trip, so I guess we'll have to go again someday!
I decided to release my 116-minute documentary about the marine life of Thailand and Burma in its entirety on YouTube. This was a real labour of love for me, and represents a pretty big chunk of my life, so I thought I'd give it its own thread rather than tacking it to the end of my thread about the series. I hope that's OK. Feel free to share and embed it anywhere. It looks best at 720p, and there are a number of closed caption options under the CC button including the names of all the species and dive sites. Enjoy! [youtubehd]8ncUVddkK3Q[/youtubehd]
