Crystal Clear Water near Bo Phut

I am looking to do some snorkeling, and after reading all the posts here it sounds like the water in Koh Samui is muddy and not clear. Any crystal clear water at any beaches? Wanted to know if it would be better to charter a boat to Koh Phngan (i believe 30 min away) or to Koh Tao? How long does it take to get to Koh Tao from Bo Phut?

Thanks Gang!!!

No interesting snorkelling on Samui, but very good snorkelling at Koh Tao and Koh Ang Thong.

Day trips usually also include kayaking, snorkelling and lunch.

Appproximate cost per person 1,800 THB (36 euros)

We went to Koh Ang Thong and it was amazing!

Water at Chaweng was crystal clear last month! Would'nt say that in general, the water on ko phan gan is any clearer. If anything, K>P>G is a more windswept island anyway with tides bringing in flotsam e.t.c.
