The clouds were burnished bronze by the setting sun as we departed Phuket’s Chalong Harbor for the northern Andaman Sea. Destination – diving in Similan Islands. With several hours to cross to the Similan Islands, we had ample time to assemble camera gear and unwind with a glass of wine. There would be no diving that night. Located about 60 miles (97 km) North of Phuket Island, the Similans comprise nine granite islands washed by blue water and rimmed with gorgeous white-sand beaches. Similan Islands National Park was established in 1982 to preserve this national treasure, and strict rules are in place to protect the islands’ ecosystem.
