Hi,

No it's not too far to do in a day.Air-con buses (with toilet on board) leave Ekkamai bus station (ekkamai is on the suhkumwit line of the sky-train, the bus station is below the station) leave every 20-30 minutes and take 2-2.5 hours.From Pattaya bus station there are 20 baht songthaew taxis waiting to drop you off at the beach.Pattaya beach itself is no good for snorkelling but...take the ferry from the pier to Koh Larn island offshore and there is some good snorkelling there.All this can be done in a day!
