Here's some pictures from our dive trip last month aboard the MV Hallelujah. We had a good time, excellent staff, great food and good diving. There was a lot of Plankton in the water which was both good and bad. Vis was down but we saw tons of fish and big stuff like Mantas.

Thanks guys, we had a great time. It brings the whole fish tank experience full circle when you're down there watching them in the wild.

I agree. For me, diving inspired reef keeping.

Love Thailand

Where did the boat pick you up?

The cruise was out of Khao Lak, but they picked us up from the Phuket airport and dropped us at our hotel in Phuket afterwards. Phuket is a great place to visit as well. Since it was our first time to Phuket, we stayed in Kata Beach for another 4 nights, rented a scooter and self toured all over the island. It's a really fun place, I highly recommend it.

Stayed at Kata also.....was a really rough day on the sea...decided to swim out with the surfboard guys......in the breakers and body surf.......bad idea...almost got me..and I am a strong swimmer...when they have the red flags on the beach at Kata...stay in your lounge chair...on the beach...
