Best Snorkeling Tours in Phuket

Snorkeling tours in Phuket are a must to be experienced by the travellers who love adventurous vacations. Phuket, also known as the Pearl of the Andaman is Thailand’s largest island. It has beautiful coastlines, long sandy beaches, amazing rock formations, and clear blue water. Tourists have been flocking this island for decades now. Even though some parts are highly populated, it still has a traditional side alive which makes it one of the best destinations to visit. Best time to visit Phuket is from November to April which is the post-monsoon season and the sea is most placid during this time. Since it’s an island, water sports are the major adventure sport here. Snorkeling being the most famous mainly due to the presence of beautiful marine life as the water here is calm and clear. A lot of beaches here in Phuket provide snorkeling opportunities. The 200-metre-long Ao Sane Beach on the south island has distinct snorkeling areas.
Clownfish, eel, and parrotfishes are few species that one can find in waters at this beach.

 

The Kata Noi beach also has abundant marine life and is one of the most aesthetic of beaches here. A lot of vivid corals form the marine life here. Paradise Beach is another amazing beach for snorkeling. It’s a 150-meter-long beach with large granite rocks on both the ends.

  • Q. What things/tips should I know before going for Snorkelling activity in Phuket?

    1. Make sure that your clothing is comfortable and able to protect you against the sun.

    2. While snorkelling, take care not to touch any coral reefs, or marine animals since it can be unexpectedly dangerous for you and for them.

    3. Your snorkelling gear should be of high quality and you should try it on, before heading to the waters to avoid any mishap.

    4. Before taking the dip underwater, make sure that you are aware of the risks and dangers of Snorkelling in Phuket and take a fair idea about the oceanic conditions before heading for the activity.

    5. Start the activity calmly and stay that way for the first few moments of the activity so that you do not waste your energy right at the start.

    6. It is important to practice breathing while you are in the shallow waters with your snorkelling gear on you so that you may not panic while you are under the currents.

    7. It might be a good idea to inquire about jet skis on the water, in advance.

    8. In order to avoid foggy vision, make sure that your mask is defogged before you put it on.

  • Q. Is there any medical restriction to go for snorkelling in Phuket?

    You must understand during snorkelling, as an activity, you will have to display intense physical strength and flexibility. As a result, people with back pain problems and pregnant women are not advised to undertake these activities.

  • Q. What is the best time to go for Snorkelling in Phuket?

    The clear and calm waters of the Andaman Sea are just perfect for snorkelling, which can be done at any time during the year in Phuket. However, for the best experience, we recommend the post-monsoon months of November to April, when the waters are most placid.

    After these months, the undercurrent tends to be quite strong and the temperatures rise considerably.

  • Q. How deep do you go when snorkelling?

    Snorkelling in Phuket usually does not involve going in deep waters. Usually, after a depth of one meter, the snorkel special mask on your face might start feeling uncomfortable due to the water pressure.

    It is possible to get facial injuries due to this and hence, going beyond this is not recommended.
