Koh Tao is a island of choice for snorkelling. Can be around the island. There was in made not really from place where it cannot make snorkelling to Koh Tao. The water is transparent throughout and fish are numerous. If Koh Tao is the island of diving, it is primarily the island of snorkelling. Koh Tao everyone made snorkel! That it is at the foot of your bungalow or a snorkelling tour.

What is snorkelling tour?
The principle is simple, it takes a boat and will tour all the best spots of Koh Tao. It is simple, not expensive, accessible to everyone and it is magic. It takes a good half day to a snorkelling tour. Your boat you will bring around the island and will make stops in the best corners for snorkelling.

How is?
There are several way to a snorkel tour Koh Tao. Two main solutions emerge to make your snorkelling tour. Be you the made by renting services of a taxi boat and you are then only put on board to decide where you want to go and what time, or either you pass through an organized tour.

Option 1: Snorkelling tour private (from 1600 to 2500THB/boat)

This is the option we prefer!
It's simple, you don't have to go on the beach and dock a taxi for her driver request the tour of the island. Drivers are used and if you do not know where exactly to go, they can lead you in the right places.
Rates trading area 1600THB to 2500THB of the day (depending on the season)will for the day and it also depend on a bit of many people that you are. With this option, you are free to the time you want and you stop where you want ! Try to avoid going at the same time in the same locations as the snorkelling tour organized to avoid the crowd because that is the main interest.

Another possibility: to do this trip with Aqua Tao which offers several times a day snorkeling trips led by French-speaking guides with laying lunch to about 1500THB/people weekly. (Web site): http://www.aquatao.fr/content/snorkeling.php)

You can find more info on these tours in our page discovery of Koh Tao (day number 3).


Option 2: Snorkelling tours organized (approx. 750THB)

These companies all offer to do the snorkeling tour in two ways to choose from
Rates are the same for all companies that organize snorkeling tour. Either long tail boat (water taxi) to 550 THB, either big boat style boat diving 650 THB.

Attention, the snorkeling tours are sometimes little expensive and very nice (day with meals from 600 b/17? in 2015), but there may be charges and more!
-100 b/3? In addition to the stop at Nangyuan. (otherwise, you must rest 2 H in the boat without being able to bathe)
-1500 b/45? If we lose mask/snorkel (value 250 b/7?). Advice: come with your materiiel!
-Drinks: hide your plastic water bottle in your bag: it is prohibited on the island of Koh Nangyuan, not for ecological reasons, but to be able to sell their drinks very expensive! It must then drink quietly (and of course bring even an empty!).

That said, I still found the beautiful Nangyuan Island, and if it walks or swims a little, little find places (almost) deserts.
