Khai Island Snorkeling tours from Phuket
Khai island snorkeling tours visit Koh Khai Nui and Koh Khai Nok, small drops of sand in the ocean on the way to Koh Yao. You can do a tour just to the Khai Islands or combine them with Koh Yao and Phi Phi.
The cheap prices and the close proximity to Phuket makes these speedboat day trips very popular, they are great for half day tours. Kids love these trips because the small fish have got used to being fed and swim in to the shallows surrounding anyone who wades in to the clear water. You don’t even need to be able to swim to enjoy the fish at Koh Khai, the water is shallow and the fish come right up to the waters edge, it’s like a natural fish aquarium.
To appreciate the beauty of the islands you have to try and look past the fact that there are hundreds of other tourists there at the same time as you. A top tip is just to swim away from the beach a short distance as 99% of the other tourists will be standing in the shallows looking at the sergeant major fish. Further from the beach you’ll see more variety of fish.
