Phang Nga trip is a complete contrast to the Phi Phi Islands. This is why many guests choose to do both, but if you can only do one, this is a very good choice. This is especially prevalent during the monsoon season as it is situated in a sheltered bay, therefore it is not subject to the large sea swells that are found on the crossing to the Phi Phi. Some people in the Siam office say this destination is the only reason to come to Phuket, with only two places in the world like this, so quite special.
Siam Phang Nga and Beyond trip has become popular with families, single travellers and guests of all age groups that are not keen on rough seas. It’s great for non-swimmers too! This is a more relaxed sightseeing tour but still with plenty of activity to keep the interest for both young and old.
If you are looking for a nice mix of both snorkeling and sightseeing these tours are perfect.
Phi Phi Islands - World famous for its setting in the Leonardo DiCaprio movie The Beach. The Phi Phi snorkeling tours are a wonderful way to see some awe inspiring scenery and plunge in for some pretty good snorkeling. Along the way, you will see Maya Bay, Pileh Cove, Viking Cave and Monkey Beach. Want to avoid the crowds? Check out the exclusive Phi Phi Early Bird Tour (aka - the Phi Phi Early Bird Snorkeling Tour) - see Maya Beach before it looks like a rock concert and stay one step ahead of the masses.

Rok Islands - If you want to visit a real paradise on earth, this is the tour we recommend. The twin islands of Ko Rok Nok and Ko Rok Nai have remained almost completely undisturbed by the outside world, and a snorkeling trip to visit them can feel quite dream-like. With more than 30 metres underwater visibility and incomparable beaches, it's easy to spend the whole day snorkeling among the square kilometres of abundant coral and colorful underwater sea life.
Similan Islands - One of the world's most famous diving destinations is also one of the best snorkeling and sightseeing destinations in Thailand. Donald Duck Bay has become a favorite snorkeling destination for those who want to get away from Phuket and into some amazingly clear waters filled with marine life and green sea turtles. Snorkeling in the Similan Islands.
Surin Islands - Remote and uninhabited make this an ideal snorkeling tour for those who want to see one of the last untouched areas near Phuket. Those who join this excursion will be rewarded with probably the best snorkeling in Phuket - In our opinion it is even the best snorkeling in Thailand! The whole day is spent snorkeling with a midday stop for lunch on a jungle island where you can opt for more snorkeling or rest up on the powder white sand before getting back on the boat for more snorkeling at amazing coral reefs.
If you want a great day of snorkeling, but do not want the long journey involved with getting to the Similan Islands or Surin Island, check out our Phuket local favorite Racha Yai Island.
Racha Yai Island - Racha Yai (Raya Island) is located only 40 minutes from Phuket by speed boat. There you will find stunning crystal clear blue waters and lots of fish waiting for you to jump in and join them on a full day snorkeling tour.
