As Lida ia leaving soon, we have decided to have a sea tour to the islands, to swim in the crystal clean water and relax. The choice was Koh Tao and Koh Nanyang. The price was 1300 Baht ($43) per person, pick up time 6.30 a.m. I didn’t like it from the beginning
It all began when we were waiting for a bus which gathered people at the island to take to the pier. While waiting, I sat on the sand bags near Ease divers office and put under my ass a beach mat, which, of course, I forgot there:)
Then we drove to the pier for a long time, and, finally, boarded a beautiful catamaran, we decided that our ordeal was over) How wrong we were:) It was just the beginning:)
Breaking the waves, scary roaring the engines the boat went trough the open sea, then a roller coaster began. Intestine left, the heel, then in the head. And this was despite the fact that there were almost no waves. Prayers were offered up to a “white friend”, not only in
toilet the altar, the people were sick completely, all the children were the first which could not stand, then the adults followed) ))) Lidia and I were real sailors, as many as 3 hours, we held back our feelings:)
Remembering our trip to Phi Phi island on the newest boat, visually very similar, by the way, I did not remember such rolling, although the waves were much larger. Later analysis of the situation, I understood why it was so bad- it’s in the design of the catamaran, we were fighting against the water with a place, connecting the floats.
Koh Tao met us with the rain, all the green after a trip we did not even pay attention to it and happily went to the hard land to soak:) Next, we were proposed, ATTENTION )))), a trip on a boat around the island)))) Of course, there were lots of willing))).
Actually in this our unpleasant adventure ended, after 15 minutes the sun came out, it was very hot, everybody went into the water to watch the beautiful underwater world and photograph the surrounding beauty.
Russian-speaking tourists once came up with great entertainment – feeding the fish:) Actually it is forbidden, but nobody cares, we are no exception:) Honestly, it is unclear
Why can fish be ate, but can not be fed?
Actually, all the rest of the time prior to departure (which we were waiting for with horror), we swam, sunbathed and relaxed. The return trip was not so bad, perhaps because the sea was almost calm. At home we arrived in the dark.
By the way, no one took the beach mat:)
