Snorkeling at Similan Islands
It’s now more than twenty years since we started our popular Similan Tours, giving the non diver or diver on a budget the same opportunity as those on the dive boats to see these spectacular islands and reefs at a third of the price and without a noisy compressor to refill dive tanks.
Our 3 day / 2 night trips depart every Tuesday and Friday morning from the end of October to May and we will take you all around the islands. They are spread out over 20 km so you need a few days to appreciate them – they are well worth it! The tour starts in the morning on day one (we serve breakfast on the boat) and we return to the mainland at around 17:00 on day three. Weather permitting we go to all the islands and also to Ko Bon north of the Similans here we have the best chance to see manta rays.
So what can you see on a trip? I cannot give any guarantees but we do see turtles most of the time, dolphins often, manta ray sometimes and whales seldom. But you always see lots of coral and coral fish, including eels, clownfish, parrot fish, octopus and so on and we do see as much or even more as the divers do, because we spend more time in the water.
