Similan Island Snorkelling Trips

Similan Islands
View Point at Similan Island 8

Snorkelling trips to the Similan Islands are one of the main reasons why many people visit Khao Lak. The Similans are an archipelago made up of 9 islands which form the Similan Islands National Marine Park. According to many divers this area of the Andaman sea is one of the top dive sites in the world, and for snorkellers it is a very special place too. Open from November until to April, this area has some of the most crystal clear waters in the country, ideal for a day of exciting snorkelling easily accessible from Khao Lak.

Snorkelling at Koh Tachai

Koh Tachai lies just north of the Similan Islands but still within the National Park limits. This island is a little more off the beaten track and consequently has more undisturbed wildlife and nature. The shape of the shallow bay here lends itself for perfect snorkelling conditions and is arguably the best dive site in the area. The beach on this island is the best accessible beach in the National Park; it is a true tropical island paradise.

In addition to our Khao Na Yak Snorkelling tour, Green Andaman Travel offers 2 other snorkelling trips. One trip to the famous Similan Islands and another is to Koh Tachai. On these snorkelling trips you will be collected from your hotel and taken to the pier where you will board a speedboat before heading out to the islands. On both of these tours you will have a fun filled day of magical underwater exploration snorkelling through the turquoise waters next to the almost blindingly white sand on the shore’s edge. The Andaman Sea here is home to some brilliant underwater life; if you are lucky you might see a parrot fish, butterfly fish, angel fish, sea snake, puffer fish or even a sea turtle.

All equipment is provided; just make sure you bring your best eyes and swimming legs ready for what these islands have to offer!
