    I am not "lying on the reef". My palm is on the rock, on specific locations where there is no coral, and it is the only thing that is making contact. The thing i am pulling down is a bleached/dead whip coral which has algae growth on it (so again, not live coral), and my legs are in the air, well away from anything.

    This is far more secure and less dangerous to reefs than trying to float around in a current, while kicking around with your legs to stay in place.

    So while i appreciate and completely agree with the "save the reef" sentiment, let's not extrapolate too much about my body position without seeing the rest of my body or the reef contours. I've been doing this for 26 years, with over 5000 dives, and I am especially careful about where/how i position myself when taking photos (and that is a large part of what i focus on when teaching photography as well - in tight positions, it is better to "fix" yourself with 1-2 points of safe contact rather than flapping around and banging into things).

    If snorkelling and being in the sea water do count, here's my contribution to this thread, during our recent visit to Phuket

    Nice! On my short list to visit.

    How is the snorkeling/diving water visibility? Coral health?

    I was there not too long ago, myself.
    It's more worth taking the time to go from Phuket to the Similan Islands. The visibility is far far better than around Phuket, and the sealife and experiences are better. Best seen on a live-aboard though, but there is plenty of options to get out there.

    Not worth the dive at Koh Phi Phi, the crowds are insane and drove me crazy. I have never splashed with that many fins kicking in my view. Visibility is rubbish and you don't really get to enjoy the dive there. One of the islands off Phi Phi (it's made up of six I think) we dove on as part of the day had a Whale Shark though, but that's never guaranteed. Koh Racha Yai was nicer visibility but rather bare and bleached.

    Similan is hands down the best recommendation I can give you around Phuket! And Aussie Divers Phuket are a great outfit I dove with, super professional and a beautiful few dive shops and people. Enjoy!
