First day in Surin Islands : Arrival & Snorkeling

We had about an hour before lunch to walk on the beach after we check-in and keep our belonging in tent. The lunch was available as Thai Style seafood buffet at main restaurant at Mai Ngam Beach.

     At Turtle bay, we found many of corals and fishes (e.g. Brain coral, Antler coral, coral reef, Parrot fish, Anemone with clownfish, sea urchine, starfish etc.). The guide said that if we lucky we can see sea turtle here. Unfortunately, we did not find it. But anyway, underwater at Turtle bay was perfect and unable to see such abundance sea life like here in Thailand before.

     We spent 30 minutes at Turtle bay and we move to another snorkeling place, Ao Chong Kaaad (Thai : อ่าวช่องขาด). This bay is located at the gap between north and south island. This bay is shallow water and very easy to sea colorful fishes as well as new born coral.

Behind the scene – it used a lot of effort to get each photo 🙂

          We had time to snorkeling at Chong Kaad bay about 30 minutes and then we back to Mai Ngam Beach around 16.00pm. Guide had served us with fresh pineapple during travel back on the boat. It was very refreshing since we tired after snorkeling and diving more than an hour.

     We had 2 hours to relax on Mai Ngam Beach during sunset and take shower before dinner. We can dry our wet clothes in front of our tent, it had hanging rope. The dinner time is 18.15pm at main restaurant and it was served us with seafood dishes…yummy.

     Note : Electricity on island is available on 18.00pm – 22.00pm at main restaurant only. It has power sockets to recharge phone and camera there.

This day was our fantastic and worthwhile day since we spent all night on the bus and connect speed boat to paradise island. Then, we did snorkeling and explore the completion of the underwater world. It was one of our amazing day in our life…..Sweet dream. 🙂
