Surin Islands - The Snorkeling Experience

The Surin Islands rate as one of the top snorkeling locations in Thailand. Long broad and shallow coral reefs line the sheltered eastern coast providing extensive opportunities even for beginners. The Surin Islands Marine Park hosts a phenomenal range of flora and fauna on the land and in the sea.The Surin islands are populated only with a group of nomadic sea people “Mokens” who normally live in the Burmese Mergui Archipelago.Following a convenient pick up from your Phuket hotel you will be driven north to Khao Lak. Departing Nam Kem Pier at 9.00am., enjoy a long snorkeling stop at Ao Mae Yai, probably the best known of all the bays of the Surin Islands for its crystal clear waters giving perfect snorkeling opportiunities.This will be followed by a visit to a Mokun Village. The Mokun people are an Austronesian people who live a semi-nomadic hunter-gatherer lifestyle heavily based on the sea. It has been estimated that there are only 2,000-3,000 Mokun living today and you will find it quite interesting here.You will enjoy a nature walk at the very picturesque Ao Mai Ngam before having a Thai Buffet Lunch at the National Park Restaurant.Following a period of leisure on the powdery sands of the beach you will be given the opportunity to do a little shark watching (January to April).Finally, (away from the sharks!!), is a long snorkeling stop at either Ao Chong Kaad or Ao Suthep before returning back to Nam Kem Pier at about 4.30pm. and onwards to your Phuket hotel.
