I thought I would resurrect this thread back in the correct forum, because (at least for me) its time to start solidifying my plans.
See Original Thread Here
If anyone is still interested in going, here is my proposal:
April 7-11 : Mermaid I to Similan, Surin and Richelieu Rock areas
April 11-16 : Day trips??? (13 - 15 is Songkran Holiday meaning huge water fight)
The price for the Mermaid I trip $940/$1040/$1300 depending on the cabin selected. I have been in the $940 one before and it was all I needed.
I will be in Phuket for the first week of January and plan on booking it for myself. If there are enough people showing interest, I can probably get a lower price quote.
Post here or PM if you are interested.
