Phang Nga –
Dozens of False killer whales were spotted near Similan Island in Phang Nga.
The President of the Phang Nga Tourism Association Mr. Lertsak Pomklin told the Phuket Express that over the past weekend he was notified by a tour guide about the whales. The tour guide was on a tour boat with tourists heading to Similan Island.
When the tour boat was between Payu Island (7th Island) and Similan Island (8th Island), the boat captain immediately slowed down the boat after he spotted a huge group of false killer whales. Dozens of them were visible for more than ten minutes before disappearing under the water. The tourists were very happy to see them.
The Phuket Express noted that the false killer whale is listed in the Wildlife Conservation and Protection Act of Thailand.
