Surin Islands is rated as one of Thailand's prime snorkelling sites with a phenomenal range of flora and fauna on the land and in the sea. The two main islands Koh Surin Nua (North Surin Island) and Koh Surin Tai (South Surin Island) form the bulk of the land mass. The other 3 satellite islands both enhance the overground vistas and provide supplementary fringing reef.
The casual tourist may be able to enjoy a glimpse of the park's promise whilst the naturalist can marvel at the impressive bio-diversity. During the day you will make several snorkel stops, at Pakkard Bay, at Nemo Village and at Ao Mae Yai, always with turquoise waters and colourful reefs and fish.
You will also visit the village of the Moken where you can meet the local Sea Gypsies. Discover their natural way of life, still dependent on fish hunting and building their homes from natural raw materials. They are very friendly and welcome kind explorers to their home.
Afterwards, make a stop on Koh Surin Nua for enjoying a delicious lunch at the National Park canteen. You will also have time for fun activities in the sun at Mai Ngam Beach or some hiking along the 2-kilometre walking path.
In the afternoon you will visit one more snorkeling site at Ao Mae Yai to explore the amazing coral gardens. Then head back to the pier in Khao Lak where you can enjoy light refreshments before finally being dropped off at your hotel in Phuket.
