Best Snorkeling in Pattaya

Imagine unspoiled coral islands bathing in hot tropical sunshine as warm clear water flows up through shallow bays to quench golden sand beaches.

These are picture-perfect conditions for a relaxing boat tour where passengers can jump in and enjoy some of the best snorkeling near Pattaya.

Pattaya Snorkeling Trips with Private Scuba

We offer family friendly trips for people to snorkel around the Pattaya Near and Far Islands.

The "Private Scuba" team of friendly guides includes PADI Instructors and snorkel experts with more than 20 years of experience.

Our customer testimonials describe why we are the unrivaled experts focusing on safety and fun.

Coral island snorkeling is popular in many tropical areas, especially for people who cannot scuba dive - or choose not to.

Joining a relaxing family fun tour offers you a superb opportunity to interact passively with the vibrant marine life and aquatic ecosystems in the northern Gulf of Thailand.

All you need is your swimmers and some sunscreen. There are no specific age restrictions to join and we welcome singles, families, and groups.

Swimming skills are not required per se, but you should be comfortable enough in water to maximize the boating experience out at sea.

Note: We have a section with some snorkeling tips for non swimmers so beginners can come along too and join in the fun.
