Something fishy…


Time to bore you all with some underwater photos from the live-aboard snorkelling trip to the Similan Islands 🙂

(as always, clicking on the small photo will give you a larger picture)

For the technically curious, all photos were taken with a Canon G7X Mk2, in a Fantasea housing, using shutter priority program usually set at 1/250sec.


This is 4th or 5th time I’ve done the trip with Similan Tours, I’ve lost count 🙂


This was the biggest Giant Moray I’ve ever seen.

It’s a 3 day/2 night trip on their converted fishing boat, not as luxurious as most of the dive boats but comfortable enough and also a lot cheaper !

We saw this turtle from the top deck while having breakfast but then it swam away into the distance. A little later I was just about to slide into the water when I looked down and saw it right underneath me. Everybody quickly kitted up to get a better look and it obliged by swimming laps around the boat until it got bored with us and sped away …..for something that looks so slow and clumsy turtles can really move when they want to !

That will probably be my last snorkelling trip for a couple of years as my girlfriend and I are planning on building a house later this year, if the Aussie dollar does n’t sink any more…… That will keep us busy next dry season, we will not be able to go away and leave the builders unsupervised. Well, we could but the builders might not follow the plans and we end up with something like this …. upsidedownhouse
