Thursdays, from May – October inclusive, subject to sea conditions and with minimum 5 passengers booked.
ITINERARY: A must for keen snorkelers, this trip will allow you hours of time to float over the reefs around the Ao Nang archipelago (2 – 10m depth). The cruise will take in all the sights around the beautiful 4 Islands, but avoids anchoring in all the busy tourist spots. You’ll instead head to the rock islands such as Koh See and Koh Haa, known for their anemones and many types of clownfish, as well as colourful coral gardens. Koh Yawasam and Yawabon offer great sloping reefs to explore – ideal for those who enjoy free diving.
Enrich your experience with dedicated snorkel guides to point out areas of interest and help identify fish. There will be a briefing and debriefing following each snorkeling session where you will have the opportunity to learn more about the Andaman marine life you have encountered.
As the sun sets, continue the cruise and enjoy a BBQ buffet on board the boat. After this, the brave can try night snorkeling (torch provided) to explore the nocturnal life of the reef, or simply swim with the phosphorescent plankton. Move your arms through the water to create a trail of sparkles.
Comfort levels on board the cruise boat are high, with a toilet, shower, and dining area and two decks to relax and take in the scenery.
Expected group size: 6 – 25 pax, depending on the day and time of year.
Important: Please provide the full names of all passengers and their shoe size in the order notes when you check out, so we can ensure the correct size fins are available for you on board.
This trip includes 2-3 open water snorkeling stops of around one hour each. It is possible to stay on the boat during this time. Please wear a life jacket if not a confident swimmer. Travel time to the islands is around 30 mins.
