Snorkeling from Ban Krut

I am staying with my family for 7 days in Ban Krut, from August 21st, Iam keen to arrange some snorkeling, looking at Koh Tao and Koh Talu, Can anyone advise me if the snorkeling is good in Koh Talu, which is easier to get to or is it worth making the longer journey to Koh Toa?

Also thinking about staying 1 night, if anyone can recommend accomadation on the beach, good for children?

Thanks Sarah

Hi Sarah, welcome on TA forum!

Koh Tao is definitely too far for a day trip, from Ban Krut 2 hours drive to reach Chumpon pier then ferry about 1 30 hours. You should stay minimum 1 night, 2 is better.

The first day you can explore the best beaches, the second day you can do an organized snorkeling trip around the island, 4 or 5 stop including Koh Nang Yuan, they provides lunch and snorkeling equipment.

There are plenty of choice of accomodation on the beach, it depends on your budget.

Thanks for your advice,sounds like lots of options for snorkelling. We will definately look at booking stay over. Our budget is up to $150-$200 for 2 adults & 2 children, we often end up booking 2 rooms.

Is it better to book snorkelling package from Ban Krut when we get there?

You can take a taxi to the Chumpon Pier then a boat, I think you don't need a package, It's pretty easy to do this trip by yourself.

With your budget I suggest you Sairee Hut, Palm Leaf or Sairee Cottage in Sairee Beach, 10 minutes to the pier. All are directly on the Beach at walking distance to restaurants, shops and bar.

Enjoy
