Blue cave is a very nice place to do diving. You can also do snorkel and kayak. It is very safe! Highly recommended for all people, including families with children and grandparents. I recommend to go a weekday, afternoon, since there is less people, I am sure you will enjoy!

Compared to snorkeling in Phuket, the good sides of snorkeling in the Blue Cave are: 1) Water is very clear with different species of fish. 2) Fish won't bite you. 3) The Blue Cave is beautiful. 4) You are given the full gear of snorkeling mask, wet suit and flippers. Corrective masks are even available for people wearing glasses. 5)... More

Great place to see the marine life up close. Be sure to wear good water shoes because there are a lot of sea urchins right as you enter the water. They do not rent equipment there unless you hire a tour guide. Be sure to bring everything you need. They also charge ¥200 to shower off and don't allow people... More

We visited the Blue Cave by snorkeling. Jumping off the boat at around 100 meters from the blue cave, we slowly swam toward the cave. Outside the Blue Cave, it was packed with boats and tourists, mostly snorkeling, queuing to get into the cave. Inside the cave, it was full of people, crawling on the surface and shouting and trying... More

Went with Sun Marina Hotel, as we stayed there. They provided wet suits, life jackets and prescriptive googles and snokels. The hotel's little boat took us there in 10 min. The two guides took our group of 5 with a small float-raft and lead us into the cave. Whole trip around 90min. Many fish and many divers/snorkelers in the area... More

This little cave is about 20-30 meters on the right from the water entry at Maeda Point. It's the main attraction over there, so might get a bit crowded, so come early if you are in-season... In any case, it's totally worth it, such a picturesque location!

It's busy but the colour of the water is so brilliant. We went with our daughter and were amazed by the variety of flush and the blueness of the water. We went with our own snorkelling equipment, no need to take a tour.
