Early 8am start got on a coach picked up other tourists and headed for the port to catch a high speed ferry to Pulau Payer (Island Payer).

Got to the not too busy island we had 4 hours on the island to snorkel in the very clear waters amongst coral and hundreds of fish and many black tip sharks.

Unfortunately a large amount of coral was closed off due to it being under threat because due to lack of rain and high temperatures the water had heated up to 31⁰c killing off coral, global warming is so real.

The fish were amazing we were right amongst them and I think only I swam up close with some sharks nearly as big as me, no fear lots of fun.

Louise was in the sea with the fish alone so I through some bread next to her so all the fish would group up to compete for it she got only a little scared but it was so funny, when she got out the waters she had a bite the size of a 2pence piece on her chest the bite was not deep but drew a tiny tiny bit of blood.

She got me back the same way I got nibbled loads but no blood thankfully because I wanted to swim with the sharks more.

We had some lunch then carried on snorkelling until it was time to dry off quick in the sun and catch the boat back.

The trip was good fun.

When we got off the bus in the morning a guy took our photo I knew it was going to be face on a plate again so I pulled a funny biting face.

On the way back we saw our plates they were so wonderfully rubbish we took a photo of them, the lady selling them wanted 10rm (2) I tried to knock her down to 5 but she wasn't game so didn’t buy it, would have love to but it because it was hilariously tacky but would have had to carry it rest of the journey.
