Snorkeling island close to Phuket

We recommend Racha Yai snorkeling tours because Racha Island is close to Phuket (25 minutes by speedboat from Chalong Bay) and the granite island is surrounded by clear water with large schools of fish.

Fish that you can see include schools of sergeant major, snapper, fusilier, titan trigger fish, clown fish (Nemo), lion fish, parrot fish, banner fish, moorish idols, trumpet fish  and much more.

Crocodile longtoms swim just below the surface, blue spotted sting rays and flatfish try to hide on the sandy bottom.

There are several varieties of hard coral including brain, cabbage, plate, leaf and stag horn coral. Plus sea fans, sea whips, anemones, sea stars, sea cucumbers and spiny sea urchins.

Eagle eyed snorkelers should also be able to spot moray eels, mantis shrimps, garden eels, blennies, gobies, nudibranchs and scorpion fish.

  1. Need pick up and return to cruiseship for day snorkeling tour, arriving on 5 March, 2018, Sapphire Princess cruise ship in Phuket ( no idea if it is tendered or dock).
    Ship will arrive at 9am and depart at 6pm.
    Any snockeling tour that is close to port, with less travel time and cheaper will be desirable. Must return to Phuket cruiseship passengers drop off-peak up location by 4pm to be safe and not late.
