I've been here for over a week now and yesterday I got to go on my first boat trip. It was Krabi's 5 Pearls and it is a trip where you can visit the most beautiful places of Krabi by speedboat. It's a snorkeling and sightseeing tour. It was fun and I got to see a lot of beautiful beaches.
My day started at 6.45 at the dive center and then the boat left at 8 o'clock from the beach. There were me, Andrea and 16 guests on the boat. The first stop that we did was at Koh Hong, it got a nice beach and if you go further into the island you can find big lizards! Then the speedboat took us in to the lagoon that is on the island. Inside there are mangrove trees growing, and the thing about them is that they can turn salt water into sweet water. After that we went to Poda Island, it is a beautiful island with a beach that goes around about half of the Island. I loved it there and I will definitely go there again when I have a day of. When it was time for lunch the boat took off for Chicken Island where we ate and afterwards I did snorkeling. After that the speedboat took us to Railey beach and from there we walked about 15 minutes to Phra Nang Bay, on the way there were a lot of monkeys climbing around on the fences and in the trees. When we came to Phra Nang Bay we saw the Princess Cave and then we just relaxed on the beach until the speedboat came and picked us up and took us back to Ao Nang.
I still don't know when I'm starting my open water diving course yet... I was going to start this Tuesday but I weren't finished reading the book. So I will see when it starts hopefully I will know in a week! / Julia
