Once again, snorkelling enthusiasts are amply catered for, whilst fishing rods and bait are provided for the eager fisherman and woman.
3rd Island Stop) Koh Ped
Next stop on the tour is the island of Koh Ped literally translated as Duck Island, although there is not a duck in sight there are monkeys abound. Koh Ped or perhaps more appropriate, Koh Ling (Ling meaning monkey) has a resident population of Thai Samae monkeys, but once again no human inhabitants.
A ramshackle sun shelter and worn down mermaid statue adorn the coastline along with thousands of monkeys, who often swim out to the boats to receive food or scavenge what they can find. The dingy ferries passengers to the island, where an offering of fruit and vegetables are given to the monkeys, whilst tourists are free to pose for photographs and play with the lovable primates. Due to the monkeys over population of the island a natural, self sustaining food source is no longer present on Koh Ped; as such they are solely reliant on the tour boats as a source of food at present, whilst conservation strategies are being discussed.
Following the feeding of the monkeys on Koh Ped the Serenity begins its homeward bound journey to the Ocean Marina passing the scenic beaches of the Sattahip region and Bang Saray to conclude the fun filled day of island explorations.
