Very good trip for a two-day weekend liveaboard. Amazed by the sheer volume
of fish at sites like Hin Muang and Hin Daeng. Huge schools of various
small fish teeming over reefs, as well as large schools of bigger fish
(including a small school of very large barracuda). Second dive group
actually saw a whale shark, though our group did not. Despite having to
reroute second day to more "day-trip" sites, still very impressed
with the life off-shore of Phuket. Definitely worth a return visit. Very
competent and efficient liveaboard crew, guides, etc.
