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.
