SNORKELING IN KOH TAO, THAILAND

We love scuba diving, but maybe you aren’t quite there yet or you want something more relaxed for your Southeast Asia holiday.. There are several snorkeling adventures available so you can still experience everything there is to see around Koh Tao.

Thailand is one of the few places in the world where you can see (and swim) with a whale shark, and Koh Tao is the best place in Thailand to do just that. They are regularly spotted around Koh Tao near the following dive site Chumphon Pinnacle, Sail Rock, South West Pinnacle, White Rock and Shark Island.

Whale sharks often swim close to the surface, so you can even see them while snorkeling!
