Pattaya is a colourful and vibrant city but it nice to escape to the tropical islands and see some of the natural side of Beautiful Thailand. Snorkelling Pattaya gives you the opportunity to get out on a boat for the day, observe uninhabited islands and the surrounding underwater reefs and life. Pattaya is an ideal location for snorkelling as it has a vast amount of islands with fringing coral reefs.
The reefs provide calm waters and a habitat where fish thrive. Visibility in the shallow waters is generally clearer with warm waters in excess of 30 degrees C. Below is the coral reef with an abundance of small colourful reef fish, anemones, sea horse and turtles. It is an adventure for beginners, immediate & advance snorkellers alike that anyone can enjoy.
No trip to Thailand would be complete without visiting the beautiful islands of The Siam Gulf! There are more than 15 islands close to Pattaya and its shore line. 95% of which are desert islands and uninhabited. We go to different islands everyday and even plan special island hopping trips to some of the most remote islands in the area for you to enjoy!
What the fish!? There are literally hundreds of species of tropical fish to be found in Thailand and most of them you can see everyday whilst snorkeling in Pattaya. Moon Wrasse, Damsels, Sgt Majors, Banner Fish, Clown Fish, Bat Fish, Puffer Fish, Yellow Box fish.. Do you know your fish? learn from our guide and tell your friends what you saw !
Do you think that viewing corals is only for scuba divers? The fact is, the best corals are in shallow waters, perfect for snorkelling and seeing the most color on the reef. Coral around Pattaya’s islands is in danger from damage by none careful snorkelling. Expect our guides to teach you how to snorkel without impacting our reefs! Help Us Save Our Reefs
