Taking time out from their busy schedule, a group of UK Military personnel came to Mamutik Island for a few days of recreational diving with Downbelow.

It was our pleasure to introduce them to some of the marine life this region has to offer and a good time was had by all.

Many had never dived before and they were fortunate to meet the friendly Green Turtle, mentioned in a previous post.


Upon surfacing one of the guys proclaimed “thats my first underwater turtle” we returned “you’re our first underwater Gurkha !”

The group have now returned to their posts in various corners of the world. We wish them all the best and hope they return to KK one day in the future.
