Explore the Gulf of Thailand on this multi-activity tour, which includes the use of all equipment for snorkeling and kayaking. Booking these activities separately may take some logistical maneuvering; this tour includes both as well as fast transportation to the islands via a large, stable boat. Visit Koh Mae Ko to see the Emerald Green Lagoon (Talay Nai), go kayaking at Wua Ta Lap, see the unusual rock formations in Lotus Cave, and enjoy shallow water snorkeling.
