Thailand Travel Guide Dive Time on Mu Ko Surin Phang Nga

Dive Time on  Mu Ko Surin Phang Nga Thailand Travel GuideMu Ko Surin is a group of islands in the Andaman Sea. The seabed is a stunning picture of coral reef and marine life in many forms and colours. The giant yellow seafan _ almost four metres tall and as much wide _ in Mae Yai Bay immediately caught our attention. We couldn't establish its age but we were pretty confident that it must have been there a long time. Even in the shallower waters of Chong Kad Bay, the narrow channel between Surin Nua and Surin Tai islands, we could see coral covering the seabed. It was a perfect spot for skin diving and only a few steps from the beach.Moken decorating their god 'Lor Po' to greet tourists this season. Turnning around I was impressed by the richness of marine life. There were all kinds of fish of different size and colour. I saw angelfish, Andaman butterflyfish and bannerfish. Bright coloured starfish clung on to branches of coral reefs, while big groupers hid in deep holes.
