A must have -experience at Koh Mook. You swim through the cave in the middle of fishes almost in perfect darkness for about 80 metres. Take the tour either in the morning or the late afternoon so you can avoid the crowds.

After all the talk about the Emerald Cave I was expecting something a bit more breathtaking. It was definitely interesting and worthwhile seeing. It's a set price for the long tail boat, so if you can hire it with four people, it lowers the per person cost.

What an amazing natural phenomena but almost spoilt but the number of people in it. It was still worth a visit
No good if you can't swim or have claustrophobia

This has to be Paradise! You are swimming in a 80 meter cave and end up on a smale beach with stipe mounthes around.

For the past 20 year visits to this gem of a sapphire lagoon accessible only though a natural sea cave tunnel opening, I have never encountered outrageous choatic and loud crowds so abusive to the sanctity of this spiritually powerful spot. This ecological sensitive and extremely fragile spot needs much better and systematic management and protection by more capable Thai National Park Official who can provide clear written/verbal communication,crowd enforcement including citation and arrest action (if necessary) to many tourists who disturb and pollute the pristine environment of this precious location. With the local longtail boat operators who do their best coordinating among themselves to guide their visitors by swimming in hundreds of them through this rock sharp risky tunnels, thrashing/panicky buoyed vest swimmers could easily get spooked by unexpected current surge and sudden floating objects coming at them in the dark. Chief of many violators observed recently include Spanish (illegal) tour director from rental sail boats who propelled huge rubber rafts full of passengers into this heavily travelled, dark and crowded sea tunnel full of thrashing swimmers, heaving waves/currents and protruding rocks. The lame excuse given by these illegal foreign tour guides of their non-swimmimg passengers do not warrant accidents/injuring/drowning risks to others using this sea tunnel. The Thai Park official need to immediately address tunnel mixed use mode and immediately take charge in STOPPING all rafts going through this tunnel at all times. This inability to enforce single swim-in mode has been putting the swimmers at higher drowning risk and disturb the tiny beach lagoon with bulky rafts/boat mooring on a stamp size, pristine tiny exquisite beach lagoon. The Thai State Park also need to limit the number of longtail boat swimmers going through the tunnels at one time to ensure safety and accident prevention or fatalities. If continued to be left to the coordination by the longtail operators we could see high season visit to this precious spot resulting in easily preventable accidents, injuries, deaths and severe beach lagoon, foliage, defecation to this money making gem of Koh Mook, Trang which is not reversable. Immediate and more clear sea tunnel tourist enforcement (especially no mixed entrance mode use) is needed NOW before lawsuits and costly damage charges can be brought against the Thai government and other reckless parties involved!
