You "may" get wet on the boat trip
Water is wet, the boats are not too big and if you have just a little rougher sea, you are apt to get quite wet on the boat trip.
I don´t really mind that, as long as it is warm enough, but the electronic equipment is just not made for this.
Now you certainly do not want to leave your camera at home, here. So you better make it as waterproof as you can. A plastic bag is always a good idea.
Our friends camera (miniature thing) did not survive it. One drop was enough. Mine did - thanks to the plastic bag you can see in the picture. Looks stupid, works fine.
One more note: the longtail boats can be quite noisy. If you have problems with that, take some earplugs with you.
Oh, and a sunscrean is a very good idea as well!

A Zoo at James Bond Island
The James Bond movie
was filmed at this location about 30 years ago.
Since about 10 years or more,
this beautiful location has been
converted into a Disney World Park
in a sort.
As you arrive,
there were several boats docked,
small and large traveling packed with tourist.
You walk on its pier that becomes a pathway
that leads you a bay where the infamous
James Bond rock is, also known as Koh Ping Kan.
many, many people coming to see
the exact same thing as yourself.
Also, with great sadness,
tons of stalls selling the exact same thing.
Seashells that should remain in the sea!!!!!
Junk that is known as souvenirs,
all at a more expensive price.
Even though the beaches are clean,
I feel these numerous stalls
and amount of people
are a sort of pollution in themselves.
If you can,
ask your boat driver to cruise
in the bay near the limestone formation.
There you can get your picture shot,
and avoid the disappointment of what
this beautiful spot has become.
