Was at Phi Phi island we had a early flight out and opted to take a 

long tail instead of going back the day earlier. We use the same / driver every time. 

 

Sea was choppy and we started taking water and drivers wife was 

using bucket most bailing water, I get sea sick so it was a painful 

but we survived or should I say I did...... wife was fine.

 

Great way to go around islands ...
