What to expect
Koh Hong is about 20 minutes by speedboat from AoNang. We recommend the speedboat tour because the long tail boats take one hour to get there and one hour back (normally the long tail tours are done by extra big long tail boats that are crowded. They are also hard to climb into because they have 1 metre high sides and small rickety ladders).
There isn’t much coral for snorkeling at Hong Island although mask and snorkel are provided if you fancy looking for some small fish, mostly sergeant majors, rabbit fish and a few parrot fish.
Note that this is Krabi Hong Island, there is also a Hong Island in Phang Nga bay. Hong means room in Thai so many islands with inner lagoons are called Hong Island.
