We have several different island snorkeling tours available from Phuket depending whether you would like to join our regular diving boat or you may prefer to charter your own private boat for the day.
During the snorkel dive trip, the majority of snorkelers don't usually need any formal training but we can offer a guide for assistance if you don't know swimming skills.
Our guides are experts at diving with a snorkel and they can give you advice about the local marine life around the coral reefs at Phuket and Phi Phi islands and how to use basic snorkeling equipment, which is a mask, goggles, and fins.
We will help you with gear selection and function and for those asking us what to wear when snorkling in Thailand, fortunately the Andaman Sea is part of the Indian Ocean which has warm water all year round.
The average sea temperature is 29 Celsius so wearing a rash vest or a shorty wet suit should be adequate unless you get cold easily in the water or prefer to wear more protection against sea organisms.
Our snorkeling experts and guides are developing a review of the most popular and accessible snorkelling sites in Phuket.
The regular trips from phuket to Phi Phi and Racha islands are sometimes over-snorkeled, so we will focus on creating reviews of the less touristy sites that will interest marine life enthusiasts searching for remote spots for underwater swimming and snorkel diving.
You do not need to be a good swimmer to enjoy our snorkeling trips around the Phuket islands. There are no age restrictions to snorkel and our tours are focused on the coral reefs in shallow water near to the sandy beaches. We visit the popular snorkeling spots around Phi Phi and Racha Yai.
Snorkel tours around Phuket, Phi Phi and the Similan Islands are very popular with many sites offering shallow coral reefs perfect for snorkeling. Close to Phuket, you can visit Koh Racha Yai on a day trip, or take a slightly longer trip to the Phi Phi islands.
The Similan Islands or the Phi Phi area are some of the best spots for both diving and snorkeling in Thailand. During the high season (November to May) there are day trips, overnight tours and also the chance to stay for longer on a "live-aboard" boat and enjoy the beauty of the Similan Islands for several days.
If you are interested in trying diving and wondering how to breathe under water, then we have the solution. Fully qualified and insured, PADI Instructors, teach the beginner's courses.
If you have never tried scuba before, this experience is ideal for first timers. Discover scuba diving in a highly supervised and safe environment, and we will supply the fun and excitement.
