Phuket Day 4 - Coral Island

Itinerary today was a very last minute decision. After dinner last evening, the adults went to look for activities for today while the kids stayed in the room to play their Game Station. After much discussion, we booked the Coral Island adventure. We bought 3 passes for Sea walking and Parasailing too. So its another day at the beach!

The girls woke up first. Saw them having breakfast and chatting at the small balcony. They were so loving (for once) and I quickly grab my camera and took a snap shot of them!

Today, we will be taking a speed boat to Coral Island.

All ready for the bumpy ride...

No life jacket available for the if anything, he will be the first on daddy's person to rescue list.

After the briefing from our guide, everyone couldn't wait to head down to the clear water to feed the fish. We brought along a few loaves of bread for the kids so they can go on a feeding frenzy.

Its free and easy time till the guide rounded us up for our next activity - Sea Walking. Only the 2 girls and their daddy paid for this but I brought Nicholas along to watch and I was also like a back up, just in case one of the them didn't dare to go.

The instructor briefed everyone what to do when they were in the water and the girls were nervous but excited. The first to go down was my sister and followed by Rachel. But Rachel came up after a while saying that she had difficulty getting the air out from her ears (which was instructed by the instructor) But we assured her and told her to try again and down she goes again. This time a success. Guess she was just too nervous and needed some assurance.

Daddy was next and followed by Charmaine. Charmaine, too, got out saying she couldn't breathe but went down again after assuring her. But still, she came up again and didn't want to try anymore. I was surprised as she was always the more adventurous girl than Rachel. So I told her to stay with Nicholas and I took her place.

Spotted everyone down under and we got to hand feed the fish. It's ticklish when the fish nibble the bread from our hands and we could see corals too, though not that colourful. Just before coming out, they caught a fish and gave it to Rachel. After taking pictures with it and showing the rest of the groups the catch, Rachel let it go..back into the sea.

The girls were supposed to go for Parasailing with their daddy but the guide said the water is too choppy and the kids can't go. So daddy and my sister took their place instead. The girls were very disappointed with that.

After lunch (provided), the kids fed the fish again and try snorkeling too before heading home.
