Mar 2, 2008 - Similan Islands (Ko Bon)

Phuket and Similan Islands photos Today was the second and last day of my liveaboard trip to the Similan Islands. We had three amazing dives today. I was with the same buddy I had yesterday, Anja, and Kelly and Scott were with us again. It was just the four of us with our dive master Vincent. Scott had his camera with him on all the dives and on the last dive of the day we spent most of it takig goofy photos. That's probably why we didn't see any mantas, we were too distracted by taking our regs out and holding our breaths for the...

The Similans had at least 3 other boats on...

Early this morning I came down to the lobby of the hotel and to my dismay a constant stream of Christmas music was being played over the PA. I hadn't expected the Christmas assault until I returned home. I asked the desk clerk why a Buddhist country played Christmas...

Feb 20, 2006 - Thailand - Liveaboard Dive Trip - Similan & Surin Islands 5D/4N

The live aboard boat was small but there were only 12 guests and 3 instructors so it wasn't overly cramped. Our room on the other hand was only 6 ft sq for four people so you can imagine that was kind of confined. Thankfully the first couple of days we got time to relax on the secluded white sand beaches of the Similan Islands during our surface intervals between dives. We did four dives every day, fourteen in total including two night dives covering the Similan Islands, Surin Islands, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai and Richelieu Rock, the furthest...
