Koh Tao Snorkeling
Koh Tao is surrounded by large rock formations covered with stunning coral reefs with an abundance of marine life that starts just a few metres offshore. Most of the year the conditions are very good, with crystal clear and shallow, calm water, so snorkeling Koh Tao is suitable for both adults and children.
The most popular way to combine sightseeing and snorkeling Koh Tao is on one of the “Around Island” boat tours. If you would prefer a more quiet and gentle approach, plan your own trip by walking or kayaking. However you go, a variety of fish await, such as parrotfish, angelfish, triggerfish and blue spotted rays, and at some sites, maybe a black tip reef shark and sea turtles!

Snorkeling Koh Tao by yourself
Snorkeling and Walking or Kayaking combination
If you don’t want to join a group tour, you can always go off and discover this beautiful island of Koh Tao on your own. There are many walks for you to take to explore at your own pace and it’s easy to see some of the interior of Koh Tao and a beach or bay in one trip. Kayaks are available for hire in some places and these are great to combine with snorkeling. You will also see lots more without the engine noise of a boat to disturb fish life.
Koh Tao boasts stunning coral reefs and abundant marine life in clear warm water, combined with a relaxed atmosphere and lifestyle, making it an unforgettable destination for thousands of visitors a year.
