    Similian Islands

    February 17 in Thailand ⋅ ☁️ 27 °C

    Ausflug Nr. 2 geht zu einer Inselgruppe in der Andamanensee.

    Allerdings ist die Anreise ab Phuket hier wesentlich länger.
    1h Bus und ca. 1h40 mit dem Speedboat.

    Dafür landet man im Paradies!

    Zuerst fahren wir Insel Nr. 8, Ko Similan, an.
    An der Donald Duck Bay gehen wir an Land und können auf den Sail Rock wandern (ca. 5-10 Minuten).
    Schnell sein lohnt sich. Dann kann man ungestört ein schönes Erinneringsfoto ohne "anstehen" knipsen.

    Lediglich eine Bucht weiter wartet der erste Schnorchelgang auf uns.
    Wie auch schon bei Koh Phi Phi hat man auch hier eine schöne Unterwasserwelt. Wenn auch nicht ganz so bunt.
    Similan Islands sind bekannt für ihre Schildkröten.
    Trotzdem muss man Glück haben welche zu sehen. Uns blieb dieses leider verwehrt.

    Da unsere GoPro leider den Geist auf gegeben hat habe ich hier keine Unterwasserbilder

    Similan nature reserve

    February 11, 2017 in Thailand ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    After an epic day of diving it started raining. Nobody was very keen to visit the beach on Island no 9 that was scheduled as a late afternoon activity. We don't need much encouragement... we just look at each other as everyone else declines and say its once in lifetime. Off we went on the rubber duck for a short 10 minute boat ride with two of Thai dive masters. All the day boats have left and we basically had the beach to ourselves, for a world heritage site this is pretty much unbelievable. Me and Roedolf did the little hike up to the lookout point, the plank bridges is somewhat flimsy looking, but we made it to the top barefoot and all. The scenery was out of this world, it was cloudy and about to rain again but the water was still crystal clear, a perfect canvas of emerald turquoise blue and green. You can see the reefs that attracts all the marine life. I simply just love islands, there is just always something mesmerizing about it, perhaps the mystery? perhaps the secludedness? perhaps just the blue water? But it never fails to leave me with joy and thankfulness.

    Maybe we should visit all the islands in the world ? At least we will try to? Roedolf sighs and mention the slavery involved to make this happen... a girl can dream right?

    Sail Rock - Similan #8

    February 11, 2017 in Thailand ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    After 3 dives we get the opportunity to go to a beach on Similan Island #8, its a bit rainy so everyone chickened out and just me and Isabel got on the dingy and went.

    This is where we must be different from other people. Like us they will probably never get the opportunity to set foot on this beautiful island and beach ever again, but they let a few drops of rain stop them from experiencing it.

    With our once in a life time attitude we also hike up to Sail Rock where you get probably the best view in the Similan islands.

    On the way back in the dingy we got soaked but it was well worth it, and nothing a hot shower couldn't fix.

    Dive company

    February 12, 2017 in Thailand ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    Ping and Kuie is two of the non European DM's they are so much joy and laugh out of their stomachs. We really enjoyed their company and funny comments in broken English.

    After dinner we played pictionary dive style in two groups, the different accents cultures made it pretty interesting.
