Koh Samui snorkeling is an amazing activity that can be enjoyed by anyone.

Even though it doesn’t require any special training, it is highly recommended you should at least have basic swimming skills and feel comfortable in the water.

If you’re an experienced snorkeler or a total beginner,  and if you like the sea, then Koh Samui snorkelling is certainly one of the must do things on a Thailand holiday.

Snorkelling is a great way to become one with the vibrant tropical marine life that inhabits the reefs here. See it for yourself and for the first time, for it will give you a memory for a lifetime.

This is truly a wonderful way to see Koh Samui and from a different and beautiful perspective.

Koh Samui Island has some fine little spots for snorkeling, however, due to the largely sandy bottom areas around Samui you should check locally for the best spots.

Sea and weather permitting, of course, there is some good snorkelling to be had on the coastal area between Lamai Beach and Chaweng Noi.

The rocks around Hin Ta and Hin Yai (Grandfather and Grandmother Rocks) in Lamai can be great snorkelling spots as well.

In order to truly enjoy the best Koh Samui snorkeling, a day tour to some of the nearby islands is a must is highly recommended.

A couple of the finest snorkelling trips from Koh Samui are off the islands off Koh Tao & Koh Nang Yuan as well as Ang Thong National Marine Park.

The best time to enjoy Koh Samui snorkeling and the tours to the nearby islands are the months of June, July, and August. At that time the weather conditions are usually most favourable with sunny days,  flat sea and clear water. 

During the winter months, the Gulf of Thailand is influenced by the North-East Monsoon which can be a little bit unpredictable with possible rainstorms, choppier seas.
