Snorkeling trip with a great company, with English instructor great staff and good gear. Tour included two snorkeling sites on Koh Rok and one on Koh Haa. Lunch was at Koh Rok national park and white sandy beaches. Every sesion was different but Koh Haa was by far the best spot. Tour has lots of participants even during very low tourist action due to covid so might be more crowded when the tourists come back.

On 26 December, COVID had wrecked tourist numbers on Ko Lanta, so snokelling companies are not usually able to fill a boat. To get round this, scuba/snokel companies on the island combine customers and go with one boat. This worked out well with a snorkel trip of about 15 people going every day. Boat was newish, in good repair, and tidy. Staff were pleasant but could not speak English. The breifing at the start of each snorkel, 3 in total on my trip, was only in Thai. Usually not a problem. There was a bucket of masks and snorkels, and these were passed out. I wss suprised there were no flippers available, but hey, this is Thailand. A few of the Thai customers had flippers, I assumed they brought them along, smart move. At the end of the last snorkel I noticed the flippers being taken back from the Thai customers and put in a locker. I do not know when they brought them out as I was sitting next to the locker and would have noticed. Snorkelling without flippers is not easy. Otherwise staff were good. We visited Koh Hat for one snorkel, and Koh Rok for ttwo snorkels. Koh Hat was a disapointment, but Koh Rok was good. We also stopped for lunch on Koh Rok, plenty of good food. Some customers took up the option of missing snorkelling on Koh Rok, and spent the afternoon on Koh Rok beach, which was good. Snorkel fee with organiser does not include entry to Koh Rok, 400 baht for farangs, 40 baht for Thai.

I went with 4 friends on a day tour with 3 snorkeling spots on Koh Rok and Koh Haa. We were picked up in a van and taken to the beach where we boarded the boat. The snorkeling spots were great, so much to see, and we were given ample time, though not too much, in each. One was a bit crowded so the driver took us to another location which was much appreciated. Lunch was amazing and more than enough food. The break was long enough to allow us to do a nature trail to an amazing lookout point, though many stayed and swam on the beautiful beach.

Staff on boat were really friendly and helpful and all the places we went to had very clear water - so there was some good snorkelling. We had decent vegetarian lunch. We sat outside (no room inside boat when we got on), which was fine. It was choppy on the way out - but not so much on way back. Wasn’t so impressed by the Emerald caves. Just felt like swimming through a dark cave. There were loads of jellyfish - though the sting didn’t really hurt us at all (just a little prick). Most places were very crowded - especially where we stopped for lunch and the islands were quite similar.

First the positives, staff members on our boat were very kind and the water and limestone mountains of Phi Phi Islands are beautiful. Now (unfortunately) to the negatives ... it seems all of the speed boat tours that head to these islands are JAM PACKED. We went on a day when the water was quite choppy and it was dis-concerning when we were also on a boat that felt too full. I had to ask for life jackets for my two children and when we got back on the boat after visiting Bamboo Island the waves were so big I wasn't sure how we were going to make it .... (we did and all was fine thankfully.) Phi Phi is pretty overrun with tourists ... I understand why people want to see it though. It is beautiful ...
