Snorkel Ao Nang / Railay
There are three main destinations for snorkelling around Ao Nang & Railay, as follows:
Koh Phi Phi has problems these days and, for most people, it's better to visit it on this day-trip than to stay there. Click here for more on Koh Phi Phi.
This daytrip includes quite a long time in the speedboat, as Phi Phi is a fair way from Ao Nang / Railay. Some travellers won't enjoy spending the best part of 2 hours bouncing up and down in a speedboat, for others it will be no problem.
This tour includes 7 different stops, so visitors get in and out of the boat a total of 16 times. While this is no problem for adults and makes for an interesting day out, this trip is not reccommended for children under 12, due to the trouble of getting them repeatedly in and out of the boat. Families with younger children should take the Koh Hong snorkelling speedboat trip instead (see below).
It is also possible to charter a private speedboat to Phi Phi. Click here for more on the Koh Phi Phi speedboat snorkelling trip.
Luxury Sailboat Trip
For those who want to avoid the worst of the crowds and have extra money to spend, this is the trip to choose, click here for the luxury yacht trip to Ph Phi.
The suprisingly affordable sailboat MV Loo-Ong is available for rent by the day. Guests can optionally island hop, snorkel and/or deep water solo. Click here for more on the private sailboat trip.
While the snorkelling on this trip isn't quite as good as it is on the Phi Phi trip, there are a lot of fish to be seen, and these are quality day-trips, about which we receive very positive feedback, click here for more.
