We arrived into Mae Haad after a 2 hour ferry journey and jumped straight onto a taxi to Tropicana resort. Just round the corner from here we found 'Shark bay', famous for its abundance of lagoon coral and black tip reef sharks. We spent an afternoon snorkelling through the bay and spotted some amazing wildlife, though unfortunately no sharks.
We then moved on down to Sairee Beach village where we stayed at AC resort for 3 nights so Andy could get on with some diving. He spent 2 days out on a boat and completed four amazing dives to local sites King Kong, Three rocks, Japanese Gardens/Red Rock and Twin Peaks. Japanese Gardens being the best of the four with an incredible swim though cave, crystal visibility and scores of tropical marine life and corals.
Our 7 weeks in Thailand were rapidly drawing to an end (along with our Visas) and it was time to start making the Journey down towards Singapore via Malaysia.
