Day 5-6 (April 06-07, 2011) … Dive Day #1
After our arrival at the Patong pier, our group gets transferred to the dive boat via longtail boat. We explore our cabins and the rest of the ship, before it’s dinner time … our first of may great meals on board!
On Thursday, we get a bit of a delayed start (the ship’s air compressor to refill the dive tanks is broken), but soon enough we are in the water at Anita’s Reef (Coral Reef) in the Similan Islands National Park. “Team East Bay” is made up from Wes, Clae, Kristina and I plus our dive guide Kristian (from Seattle/Denmark), and we’re off to see some life under water.
The 2nd dive that afternoon is at West Ridge (Koh Bon) brings more of the same … beautiful underwater scenery and fish!
