NOTE: I didn't mention the rip tide at Phuket beach which I misjudged and on entering the sea for the first time got taken out ankles over head. Dan found me rolling around in the shallows attempting to stand up. I went under wearing my "Roy Bans" and came up with a lot of sand instead.

We went snorkeling with sharks.
We have no photos of the sharks because the noise of the camera would have scared them away and I wasn't about to do that. Photos of snorkel masks and our boat driver who came into the sea in his pants to swim underneath us were obtained.
The current was pretty strong so it was tough work but we did see about 15 black fin reef sharks. (Message from Dan: WE SWAM WITH SHARKS, IT WAS SO GREAT. UNDER THE SEA...WITH SHARKS....IN THEIR HABITAT. BEST THING!)
The rest of the time on the island we spent on the beach, visiting Maya bay (Leonardo Dicaprio The Beach beach) and snorkeling some more.
