At risk of being self-absorbed, I have one more picture post.
We took the tourist route one day and organized to go on a boating adventure to some remote islands. We took a speedboat out and passed more islands than we could count. It was absolutely beautiful.
The guide took us into some amazing caves, caverns, and particularly tight places. He would instruct us to lay flat in the canoe and take us through places that barely cleared our knees and foreheads.
And then we spent the rest of the afternoon on a private island beach before taking the speedboat back to Phuket. Due to the high tides of monsoon season, the boat could also jump waves on the way back, which was incredibly fun.
