Snorkeling at the Similan Islands
Crystal clear water together with an enormous diversity of marine life is the reason why the Similan Islands are considered to be one of the best snorkeling destinations in the world. Most times our snorkelers gets to see as many interesting animals as our divers. At the end of a day at the Similan Islands most people have discovered an exciting new world.
If you come with us to the Similan Islands you will get maximal time to snorkel or just relax on a truly white tropical beach. Our trip will take you to one of the islands, where the morning snorkeling will take place. In the afternoon you can continue snorkeling off the same beach or you can come out with the diveboat to another island.
A relaxed day with more quality time
Many of the snorkeling operators and other dive centers will take you to three or four different islands. This is nice, but there will not be time to relax since it takes time to get in and out of the water each time. Also, no other dive operators will let you spend time on- and explore the islands.

We pick-up our guests at their hotel in the morning, depending on where you stay the pickup time is between seven and seven thirty.
We depart from our pier at about eight, and between nine thirty and ten we arrive at the Similan Islands. First we head to one of the beaches of island #4 or island #8 to let snorkelers and some divers off.
A snorkeling guide will help you with equipments and teach those who have never snorkeled before. The coral reef starts just off the beach, in shallow water, and even if you don’t like deeper water you will see colourful fish.
