Its an absolute delight to be snorkeling or diving in Thailand with so many options. One could go to the crystal clear waters of the Andaman sea in Phuket or one could go to the beautiful Islands of Koh Samui and Koh Tao and dive in the Gulf of Thailand, which is the hub of diving there. So throughout the year there are multiple options available for various water sports and specifically snorkelling and diving.
In this experience we will be focussing on Koh Samui and Koh Tao.
Ko Samui is Thailand’s second largest island and lies in the Gulf of Thailand off the east coast of the Kra Isthmus. Its has picturesque palm-fringed beaches, coconut groves and dense, mountainous rainforest, plus luxury resorts and posh spas. There’s 12m-tall golden Big Buddha statue at Wat Phra Yai Temple is located on a tiny island connected to Ko Samui by a causeway.
So if one is not diving there plenty to see and do, or just chill on the beautiful beach.
Thailand is a great place to snorkel and discover scuba diving. You don’t have to be a pro to dive. Qualified and experienced divers would give you an orientation and introduction to diving. They would further accompany you under water where they would guide and help you dive to be close enough to kiss the fish ☺.
However, if you want to get one step further, you could get certified. PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) offers certification courses to train divers so that they could become more proficient and qualified while diving. We could help you there as well.
We have designed the itinerary for people who are new to diving to diving. Therefore, you could just come to snorkel and take a “fun dive”, or take a PADI certification if you are ready for it, or just dive with us if you already have one.
