    On September 11, 2008 I met up with an old Korean friend and we spent 3 days diving off the southern coast of Jeju Island, Korea. We dove with Good Diver in the port city of Seogwipo.

    They charged us 100,000 won (about $90 USD) per per per day for two dives. A full lunch at one of the local seafood restaurants was included. I will use Good Diver again in May when I return to Jeju Island.

    We boarded a small fishing boat that took us out to Mun Island just outside of the port. Alternatively they took us out to a rock spire next to Mun Island.

    The air temperatures were in the 90 degree F range. There was a defined thermocline with bottom temperatures a cool 70 degrees F. I used a 5mm wet suit, but would have been comfortable in a dry suit (except on the surface).

    Nice!

    I have yet to get to Jeju, but should be hitting it up soon... You done any diving off the east coast?

    No, all of our diving was on the southern coast out of Soegwipo.
