snorkeling? Distance from Laem Chabang?

Is there a beach that has any undersea life around Pattaya? We will be on a cruise ship and after disembarking will spend time in Bangkok so we are looking for alternatives near the port for the day???

If you Google up "Diving in Pattaya or Underwater Tours in Pattaya " or something like that you will get some hits. I remember some advertising for "Submarine Tours" and similar themes.

Laem Chabang is not that far from Pattaya. However, you are at the mercy of local transportation if you are not familiar with the bus runs. If you have a decent ship they should have a representative that can arrange tours from the ship or set up transportation for you.

If you are leaving from Bangkok to Pattaya you can take a meter taxi or use the Vip bus from the Ekamai bus station, right off the Skytrain stop.

From Pattaya you can find a taxi to take you back to your ship. There is a bus that goes by the port too! The Pattaya Bangkok bus often passes by the entrance to the port.

Good luck.
