Aquatic Adventures

My Kind of Paradise On Ilha Grande thumbnail

I guess I have a thing for seedy islands. A pirates lair, a leper colony, and a penitentiary for political prisoners — much like Koh Tao in Thailand and Isla de Coiba in Panama, Ilha Grande in Brazil has quite the illicit past. And much like those islands before it, this one also managed to steal…

Koh Tao By Land: Jumping Into Jaws thumbnail

By this point, you guys are probably sick of hearing me say it — yes, there is more to do on little Koh Tao than just diving and partying! In fact, there’s a whole company that specializes in proving it. Technically yes, my good friends at Goodtime Adventures do offer scuba diving; but they also offer…

Phang Na Bay Tour

Unbelizeable: A Day at Bread and Butter Caye thumbnail

The morning of our last full day in Hopkins Bay, I woke up anxious. The previous day, our planned excursion had been rescheduled due to spotty weather. This was our last chance. I ran to the window, and flung open the curtains to tentatively clear skies. Snappily-named Cook-Your-Catch snorkeling and fishing adventure, here we come! We…
