Great dives and snorkeling at the Sunset Beach Pier

Our pier at the Sunset Beach is becoming a better and better dive!

We do have a new seahorse residing at the exact same spot since a couple of weeks and also we do have a new baby batfish which can be found easily. Our pier is not just interesting for scuba divers, you can easily snorkel it as well!

A wedding at The Dive Shop office in Sihanoukville

The other day we have had a freshly married couple at our head office in Sihanoukville to shoot some wedding pictures.

We do know that we have a beautiful office but this really made us proud. :)

Biofluorescent night diving in Cambodia

If you think you’ve seen it all under water it’s time to try a UV or Bio-fluorescent Night dive. You will see things you’ve never seen before and see the things you know and love under a whole different light…literally.

What most of us don't know is that there is an entire ecosystem of glow-in-the-dark creatures beneath the surface of the ocean. Scientists are in the process of studying the underwater creatures, trying to learn how they light up and why.

Biofluorescent organisms absorb light, transform it and “re-emit” it as a different color. They do not give off light from their own power source, nor is it a chemical reaction according to Luminescent Labs. When you shine a high-energy light, like a blue light, at the Biofluorescent organisms and see a color like green, it is because the molecules are "excited" by the high-evergy light and lose a part of their light energy and show the rest at a lower-energy wavelength, which appears green.

New research shows that marine fish use red biofluorescence to communicate. This goes against previous theories that fish can't see this deep-red color of the spectrum. This finding could mean that red-eye wrasses use their fluorescence as a private frequency to communicate.

We have just received our new 'UV Dive Lights' and the appropriate filters to offer bio-fluorescent night dive off the Sunset Beach.

We have faced some problems photographing the bio-fluorescence during our first dive, hopefully in the near future we will be able to take some more clear pictures.

We do our UV night dives (as we do with all our guided dives) in small groups only. This means you’ll have a very personal en comfortable experience. We charge $65 per bio-fluorescent dive.
