The Perhentian islands are known mainly for what is underneath the water so we looked around for snorkeling trips. Over at Coral Bay there are plenty of options starting from 30RM including gear and some even breakfast. There were a few other boats already here, and they were all treading water with their life jackets. Soon we were all geared up and ready to jump in. It didn’t take long until we were surrounded by hundreds of small colourful fish. We saw some large parrotfish feeding off the coral and swam with swarms of fish.
The last stop before lunch was Turtle Point. These were huge turtles, gracefully feeding on the bottom. We saw two come up right before us to breathe. They were 3-4 meters down, so to get right up close we had to dive down. The largest I dove down next to was almost my length. These are beautiful animals.
