I had to rent a private longtail boat to be able to visit. Yes, only accessible at low tide via 80m long tunnel. Once you are through the tunnel it opens up to one of nature's wonders. I was fortunate to have about 5 minutes where it was just me and my boat guy. I have visited similar in the Philippines but this is number one. Not to be missed.

So we are two generally happy people who booked a private tour to the cave. Cave was so cool and a fun thing to do, the whole tour including some snorkeling took us like 3,5 hrs. Upon arrival there were plenty of other tourist floating in a row like a band of pearls with their life jackets, being swum into the cave by a tour guide, which to us was hilarious. It looked really funny, but also smart way of getting asian tourists into a cave for a day of exploring despite the lack of swimming knowledge :) You gotta give Asians cred for their business savvyness. If you'd like the cave empty of people, come early in the morning, like always when you visit sightseeing places. And if you have a waterproof bag, bring it with you as there's a bit of land in the middle of the cave and a tiny beach where you can walk up on. We didn't and so that was a bummer. Enjoy Morakot Cave!

It’s a nice thing to experience, but it’s important to hit it without as many other tourists. It looked better on pictures, but If you have children with you, I bet they will remember this trip forever.

Went here as part of our snorkling trip around the island. Were advised not to go in the morning because sea lice would be there in great numbers because of the cold water. Instead we went snorkling on a private longtail which started at the pier and ended at the Charlie Beach, with emerald cave in between around 15:00. Only a few more people were there and we were pleasantly surprised. Definitely wouldn't wanted to have missed this! It is a beautiful piece of nature and it truly spoke to the imagination of pirates having stored their booty here! Entire tour cost us 1600 baht including snorkles, drinks, some snacks, etc.
