We are happy to offer our snorkeling trips on our private boat, the Samui Princess!
Our snorkeling trip runs from about 9:45 until 3:30 in the afternoon. We go all the way around the island to some of the best bays on the island, so you will get a chance to see more remote parts of the island. Popular sites include: Japanese Gardens, Mango Bay, Lighthouse Bay, Hin Wong Bay, Aow Leuk, Shark Bay, and Taonte Bay.
Ko Tao was named by its first settlers after the island's turtle-like shape. Coincidentally, the island is an important breeding ground for hawksbill and green turtles. Development of tourism has negatively impacted the health of these grounds but a breeding programme organised in 2004 by the Royal Thai Navy and KT-DOC, a coalition of local scuba diving centres, has reintroduced hundreds of juvenile turtles to the island's ecosystem.
The island is well known for scuba diving and snorkeling, as well as hiking, rock climbing, and bouldering. The most popular place for tourists is Sairee on the west coast, which has a white sandy beach of 1.7 km interrupted only by a few huge boulders and a scattering of medium budget resorts and restaurants. Chalok Baan Khao, to the south of the island, is becoming increasingly popular as an alternative for those wishing to escape the crowds. A great many granite boulders, both in the forests and on the beaches of Ko Tao, attract a growing number of climbers.
We offer lunch as part of our trip, and you will also get a chance to travel to Koh Nangyuan, which features Koh Tao Snorkeling famous viewpoint, beach, and restaurants. The price per person is 1,000 THB, and there is also an entrance fee of 100 THB to get on the private island of Koh Nangyuan.
Undoubtedly the best snorkelling Koh Tao. Coral Grand Divers have a dedicated Koh Tao snorkelling trip on a fantastic boat that goes to all the nicest snorkelling spots around Koh Tao and Koh Nang Yuan. With refreshments provided and with our professional staff, you will not beat this!
