Meet a driver at your hotel for 7am departure to Thap Lamu Pier, where you’ll pause for a light breakfast and pick up snorkeling gear for the day. Traveling by speedboat, you’ll reach the Similan Islands Marine National Park in under 80 minutes, making the first snorkel stop of the day at Koh Miang, or “Island No. 4.”
Swim over the coral reef, then enjoy some beach time at Princess Bay, where you’ll be served an authentic Thai lunch. After the meal, continue to Koh Payu, “No. 7,” whose East of Eden reef is a deeper water snorkeling highlight, then visit Koh Bangu, “No. 9,” to snorkel Christmas Point, The Mooring, and Snapper Alley.
The final snorkeling stop is at "No. 8," in Koh Similan’s Donald Duck Bay, where you can sunbathe on the beach or hike to a viewpoint at Sailing Rock. Take a break for a snack of fresh fruits and drinks, then begin the return trip to Khao Lak, where this snorkel trip concludes with drop-off at your hotel between 4:15pm and 5pm.
