Snorkel Tours

If the focus of your trip is to enjoy snorkeling and marine life then Koh Tao is the best destination for you.


snorkel-tour-koh-taoYour day will begin between 7 – 7:30 am (depending on where you are staying) when we pick you up from your resort. You will be taken to our dive center in Bophut and our boat leaves for Koh Tao around 7:45-8 am.

As a snorkeled, your day will be as exciting as the divers on board, with visits to the best sites suitable for snorkeling. With one of our PADI Professionals as your snorkel guide and in a group of no more than 6 snorkelers, you will explore the coral reefs and stunning marine life that Koh Tao has to offer. You will visit 2 different spots around Koh Tao, enjoying those locations that have the best conditions at the time.

Koh Tao is approximately a 1 hour 20 minutes speedboat journey from snorkel-tour-koh-samuiSamui and is famous for its clear water and abundance of marine life and is the perfect place for snorkelers.

We take you to one of the beautiful, shallow bays around the island, where you can swim and snorkel in clear calm seas (weather permitting) and see a fantastic variety of underwater life. If you are lucky you will get to see one of the turtles that helped give Koh Tao its name – Koh Tao means “Turtle Island”. After lunch, we take you to another lovely location for more snorkeling and lots of exciting things to see.

Our Koh Tao tour has a maximum of 14 customers on board our 2-engine boat and 20 customers on board our 3-engine boat, which is usually a mix snorkel-tour-koh-taoof divers and snorkelers, so you will not be on an over-crowded boat like most of the snorkel tours. You will receive the same high levels of service, safety, and fun that The Dive Academy has a reputation for.

We provide each snorkeler with:

  • Return transportation to and from your resort;
  • A full snorkel briefing about where you will go, what you may see, and things to do to snorkel responsibly and help protect the sites you visit
  • A lifejacket (if desired);
  • Mask and snorkel;
  • Lunch, fruit, soft drinks & water;
  • Experienced PADI Professional as Guide to enhance your safety and fun;

Please be aware we do have snorkelers and divers on our Koh Tao trips and we organize our day to give the best possible experience for both groups.

If you have any questions please contact us and we will help in any way we can.
