Phuket

So today we hooked up with the Phuket Scuba Diving Club, http://www.phuket-scuba-club.com/ ( which took incredible care of us!) and spent the day cruising the surrounding islands and Suba Diving, thank god we took that diving course back in Calgary before we left, seemed a little pricy at the time but completely worth it!..... I can’t believe all the fish I’ve seen. This might be the most exhilarating moments I’ve had! It’s no wonder why the readers of the top diving magazines voted Phuket of the top ten diving spots of the world. I think my favorite spot was Phi Phi Island (mom, this is the island where “the Beach” was filmed(1)) its true that it was a little busy and touristy, but that didn’t seem to bother the fish one bit…. Sooooooo many fishies!!!!!!! Ummmm… I swam with sharks (2) today…. Didn’t mean too… the dive leader said it was a Blacktip Reef shark, (from the name you can tell that they usually hang out in the reef.. teeheehee) I guess if I would have done my research I would know that swimming with them is a pretty common experience, a little scary at first, they’re a little bit smaller than Erin, so I figured if we had to she could take them on. Show ‘em how we roll “cowboy” style (sooooo happy we didn’t have to beat up a shark…… teeheehee). The diver instructor said not to worry about them, they don’t attack unless provoked. We did NOT provoke it………and there was no problems had, but did make for some pretty amazing pictures (which will be posted shortly!)
