Pirate Divers in central Khao Lak run by Brenda an Irish lady who when she discovers that you are English talks until the cows come home but is lovely and very informative.“We went on the slow boat as the idea of bumping waves didn’t appeal to my other half and because Brenda did say it was more enjoyable – she wasn’t wrong. The water was so calm and on our trip over, we saw a mother and baby whale – not seen since 2009 apparently.”
“The whole trip was as Brenda described – the food cooked in a tiny galley was well presented, hot and very good both at breakfast and lunch and the hot snacks served on our return trip
“I didn’t end up doing the dive – panic set in unfortunately but my husband did and enjoyed it seeing so many different fish. The crew were also very encouraging with me to do the snorkelling later in the afternoon which even though I had not enjoyed it before,”
I really did this time – the fish were so pretty.
We recommended this to an Australian couple in our hotel and they said it was a great experience so I would definitely try it and book through Brenda if you are in that area”.
“PS. There is a bar on board but water, tea and coffee are all free and they also provide a towel so no need for your own.”
