  • We organize a boat tour from our hotel. In 40 minutes fantastic snorkeling spots and a amazing beaches. The best.  more »
  • A true island paradise. We went here with launch and stayed at Koh Ha and snorkeled. Fantastic nice and many different fish. Koh Rok has long white beaches and go a little bit from the boats you're alone on this fantastic beach. A must to visit!

  • We were picked up in the morning with the speedboat. The ride was a quite "ride" - clearly you should not tend to seasickness. After 45 minutes we were on Koh rok and have snorkeled there 2 x. Afterwards, there was a lunch on the island. Then it was HA for snorkelling to Koh. The whole thing is quiet and dreamy definitely not, there are many boats with tourists there. But the trip was fun, we have seen many great fish and the team took care of really great about 16 people us. Our guide Jenny spoke English pretty well and was super friendly. That's great we found, as are individual crew members to the participants have taken care, who could not swim. They dragged them with rescue rings through the snorkeling area. Nice trip!
