Phuket, Thailand Snorkeling

Phuket, the largest island in Thailand, is situated in the warm tropical waters of the Andaman Sea. The clear, calm waters and abundance of interesting marine life make Phuket a great snorkeling destination. You can snorkel year-round in Phuket, but the best time of year is November-April, when the water is at its calmest.

Be aware that undertow and riptides can be dangerous along the west coast of Phuket – especially from May-October. Kata Beach is a great spot for snorkeling on Phuket, especially the coral reef formations at the north end of the bay. Islands near Phuket like Coral Racha and Khai Nok are great for snorkeling. A bit further away (but well worth visiting) are the Phi Phi Islands and the Similan Islands. You’ll find great snorkeling adventures in and around Phuket.
