That perfectly described our journey back from Perhentian Islands to Kuala Besut couple days ago. It was bumpy,it was violent,it was a breathe-stopping 30 minutes speed boat journey. However,despite all,it was a great Perhentian Islands 5.0 baby!
Only a day trip, we went with yet again, Sunny Travel. We arrived an hour later than promised,but still he attended us and give us best service.
(p/s: contact me if u will,he's good friend of mine,so I'll be able to arrange trip with some discounts XD)
Perhentian Islands usually closed down for tourists or public during monsoon season, and for the time being, the weather is not entirely okay, but we brave our way anyway. The islanders decide to open the island for public for a while since it's CNY public holiday.
The opening season you may say. It was like a gamble after all, it's all up to your luck! There's a good sunny day with great visibility perfect for snorkelling and diving,and somehow, there's also stormy days where..well, you could do nothing but to wait and enjoy the scenic view of the sea..The waves could be violent,and the current could be too rough for snorkelling,it literally could carry you away if you're unaware. I say wait until March or April, the official opening season,for best experience.
After few months of being shut down from people and all, the coral,fishes & the entire underwater world seems to be spawning,growing,healing and playing around very well. Some pictures from the trip! Syaffiq & Syafiq seems to enjoy their brief trip there.
