It is not unusual to find turtles swimming around the Similan Islands snorkeling sites. The Mu Koh Similan National Park is once of the most popular island destinations in southern Thailand.
The Surin Islands snorkeling and diving is some of the best in the world. The Surin Islands National Park is a group of 5 islands north of Khao Lak with some of the most beautiful coral reefs in Thailand. The Surin Islands are also home to an ancient community of Moken Sea Gypsies who once roamed all over the Andaman Sea. A Surin islands overnight snorkeling tour is an amazing experience.
Koh Kam Archipelago
The Koh Kam Archipelago is still relatively unknown by tourists. This group of islands is much closer to the mainland, meaning that the boat ride is almost guaranteed to be smooth. While the snorkeling around Koh Kam depends very much on the water clarity, many of the islands have beautiful deserted beaches that make the perfect get away destination.
