Over 130 friends and family from all over Phuket headed out for a day of dolphin watching, snorkeling, beach games, and of course FUN for the 5 Star Marine Phuket annual Charity Birthday Bash

On Saturday the 7th of October the pier at 5 Star Marine was buzzing with over 130 people looking forward to a day out with 5 Star Marine Phuket. Breakfast was on hand as well as face painting and balloon animals and everyone was ready for the annual Phuket charity event. There was no fee to come to the event, all we asked was that people donate what they wanted to our amazing charity Living Waters Phuket.

Everyone was ready to go and after a short brief from Shaun the boats filled up and off, we went to the first stop, dolphin watching and snorkeling at Maiton Island.

Maiton Island, nestled off the southeastern coast of Phuket, Thailand, is a pristine tropical paradise that captivates with its unspoiled beauty. This idyllic island, also known as Ko Maiton or Honeymoon Island, boasts crystal-clear turquoise waters, powdery white sand beaches, and lush greenery that creates a postcard-perfect setting.

Maiton Island is also famous for its resident population of Phuket dolphins, and very often you can catch glimpses of these playful marine mammals in their natural habitat. Sadly, the dolphins didn’t show up. We think it was because YouTube host Jay Leshark was on the tour and he has a strange dislike for dolphins. So yes, let’s blame Jay.

One of Maiton Island’s other main attractions is its vibrant underwater world, making it a haven for snorkelers and a perfect place to go on the Birthday Bash. The coral reefs surrounding the island teem with a kaleidoscope of marine life, including colorful coral formations, tropical fish, and other fascinating sea creatures.

After an hour and everyone getting all wrinkly it was time to jump back onto the boats and head to the next stop, Coral Island.

Coral Island, locally known as Koh Hae, is a popular island for tourists and locals alike, due to its stunning coral reefs and picturesque landscapes. Located just a short boat ride from Phuket’s southeastern coast, Coral Island is a haven for water enthusiasts and nature lovers alike.

A perfect Phuket snorkleing spot

The island’s underwater world is a kaleidoscope of vibrant coral formations and diverse marine life. Snorkelers can snorkel directly from the beach and explore the rich biodiversity beneath the crystal-clear waters. The vibrant coral gardens are home to an array of tropical fish, sea anemones, and other captivating sea creatures, creating an immersive experience. Just watch out for the sea urchins. Stunning creatures but those spikes can be nasty.

In addition to its underwater allure, Coral Island offers an array of water and beach-based activities, from parasailing and banana boat rides to jet-skiing and sea kayaking.

Away from the water, the island boasts pristine beaches with powdery white sand, providing the perfect backdrop for relaxation and sun-soaked leisure. Or if your like us, set up an awesome football pitch with jumpers for goal posts and spend an hour running around in the hot tropical sun getting sandy and (if your like Jay Leshark) forgetting that you are not 20 years old anymore.

Many of the guests just chilled out on the beach and enjoyed some delicious Thai cuisine at the beachfront restaurant, and possibly a few drinks or four.

If you have never been to Coral Island it’s well worth a visit.

Its easy accessibility from Phuket, coupled with its natural beauty and a plethora of recreational offerings, makes it a must-visit destination for those seeking a day of adventure, relaxation, and exploration in the enchanting waters of southern Thailand, and especially if you are a young family.

But enough of the sales pitch.

After a few hours on the beach, it was time to head back to Boat lagoon.

It was a fantastic day and we would like to say a huge thank you to everyone that came and supported the amazing Living Waters Phuket.

We shall see you all next year for the 5 Star Marine Phuket annual Charity Birthday Bash
