We didn’t expect to see so much from a simple half day snorkelling trip – turtles, box fish, razor fish and lots more…What was most interesting was that we could snorkel right through several overhanging rocks and into some caves created by the national rock formations. Krabi is probably one of the prettiest spots in Thailand and offers so much to the traveller. We had never seen so many fishes. And the water is very warm and comfortable at 29′deg’C!
We booked with www.KrabiDivers.com for our day out. They came to the hotel to pick us up. Taking off from Naphorat Pier just 5 minutes from the beachside town of Ao Nang, we hopped onto a quaint traditional long-tail boat that took us out to the big boat. Thereafter, it was just a 15 minute ride out on the sundeck as we soaked in some glorious sunshine with the warm sea breeze in our faces. And for the next 4 hours, we were treated to several snorkel spots off the Krabi National Marine Park which features numerous limestone mountains that sit proudly in the water. After a wonderful afternoon, we were taken by longtail back to the pier and then back to the hotel. All this for a great afternoon, and reasonably priced at only 1,000 baht (about 20 Euros). The crew on the KrabiDivers.com boat were really friendly and fun and we had a wonderful time.
