Phuket, Similans Island, MV Phoenix

Can’t believe a year has past since my first LOB at Similans island aboard MV Phoenix.

It was then I truly fell in love with diving. Where I realized I loved the deep blue, floating amidst without the need to see any creatures, and not the usual reef dives.

It wasn’t a luxurious LOB, just simple and clean where great memories were created.

Dive schedule for the next four days.

The first day after our second dive, we sat against our cabins looking at the sea, wondering how were we going to survive 4 days aboard when there was really nothing much to do. We soon found out that four days were actually way too short.

Where we all gathered the first night we boarded the boat for our briefing and where we would be spending most of our time for the rest of the trip aboard, in between dives, meal times and movie screenings during dinner.

Accompanied by this amazing collection of songs the dive crew would play at different times of the day that seem to suit our mood all the time.

When we finally docked and stepped on land 4 days later, we actually almost forgot about our slippers and were about to head off barefooted. Hurhur.

Awesome dive trip with awesome company. =D
