1. Phuket: Coral Island Longtail Boat Cruise with Snorkeling

Enjoy a day out on Coral Island, a gorgeous strip of sand and sea where you can snorkel, swim, relax, and unwind. Begin by getting picked up bright and early before heading to Rawai Beach. From there, board one of the famous Thai longtail boats and enjoy a leisurely 20-minute boat ride to beautiful Coral Island. Once you reach the island, explore Banana Beach. Wander along alabaster-colored sands, and take a dip in the refreshing waters before gathering to eat a delicious local lunch. After lunch (own expense), jump back on the boat and head to the first snorkeling spot, where you’ll hopefully get to see and play with the titular black and orange clownfish. Later, visit two more snorkeling and swimming spots. Wade around, enjoy the cool waters, and catch glimpses of local marine life. Finally after your full-day adventure, head back to Rawai Beach and get dropped off at your accommodations.

Discover Scuba Diving Racha Yai From Phuket

2. Discover Scuba Diving Racha Yai From Phuket

Have you always wondered what it is like to breathe underwater? If so you do not necessarily have to pay for a course to have certification. Begin your diving adventure at your own pace. During the experience, you get an introduction and briefing on scuba diving and you are taught how to use the scuba diving equipment in shallow waters. Please note that this is not a scuba diving certification. Breathing underwater is a whole new experience - it takes a few minutes to get used to it. This is not a typical human behavior and it is completely normal to be a little hesitant to put your face in the water and inhale at the beginning. However, within a few moments, your body adapts and you will be taken over by the freedom of movement while discovering the amazing marine life!

Fantastic way to see Coral Island and the beautiful marine life right by its shores. Our guide Joy was fantastic and she made sure to tailor the trip to suit our needs. We visited three different beaches and got to see fantastic reefs and marine ecosystems at each, right from the beach or a private long tail boat. It was our first time snorkelling, and will be unforgettable!

This was a spectacular activity. The snorkeling was fun with lots of colorful fish; the Thai lunch was delicious, and the beach was gorgeous. At first we weren’t sure whether we needed an English speaking guide, but we were glad we had one in the end. Great value for money

It doesnt get any better than this. My divemaster Jean was incredible, warm, patient and a fantastic teacher.

A private tour to Coral Island. Snorkeling had to be cancelled due to vast swaths of jellyfish in the area.
