Australia > Lady Musgrave Island > Filmed on several locations on > [View]

Filmed on several locations on the great barrier reef Australia1990-1993. Clownfish or anemonefish are fish from the subfamily Amphiprioninae in the family Pomacentridae. About twenty eight species are recognized. Clownfish are native to wide ranges of the warm waters of the Indian and Pacific oceans, including the Great Barrier Reef and the Red Sea. The fecal matter from the clownfish provides nutrients to the sea anemone.

Thailand > Similan Islands > Speed boat of Phnag Nga Provin > [View]

Speed boat of Phnag Nga Province north of Phuket and all year around diving.

Similan Islands National Park was established after a one-year exploration by the forestry department. The park is an archipelago consisting of nine islands named Ko Bon, Ko Bayu, Ko Similan, Ko Payu, Ko Miang (two adjoining islands), Ko Payan, Ko Payang, and Ko Huyong. Recently, the park was expanded to included two remote islands named Ko Bon and Ko Tachai. The Similans are situated 70 kilometres from Phang Nga town. "Similan" is a Yawi word which means "nine". Similan is one of the most famous diving sites in Thailand, and noted as one of the top ten dive destinations in the world according to the National Geographic Society.

Similan is derived from the Malay sembilan, and means nine. Each of the Similan Islands has a number as well as a name. These are, running from north to south: Koh Ba Ngu (No. 9), Similan (No. 8), Payu (No. 7), Miang (No. 4, No. 5 and, in some opinion, No. 6), Payan (No. 3), Payang (No. 2), and Hu Yong (No. 1). Hin Pousar, or "Elephant Head Rock", is alternatively designated No. 6 by some.
