As another option for wiling away a lazy Koh Kood day, snorkeling and fishing trips are available on the local reefs off the west and east coast, as well as around the offshore islands of Koh Raet and Koh Maisi Lek.
Excursions are either 1/2 day to full day, with transfers and lunch included.
Snorkeling Companies on Koh Kood
Koh Kood Boat Trip, based at Doy Homestay by the bridge in Klong Chao Beach has a daily snorkeling trip to 3 spots as above off Koh Kood – two rounds daily, 09.30 (with lunch) and 13.30 (with snacks), price from 600bt per person. It also heads over to Koh Rang for a longer day, 1,200bt per person with lunch and transfers from your hotel.
Across the road, TJ Boats at Mark House, or over on Ao Tapao, Chonratee at Seafar also have very similar itineraries, using different sized speedboats depending on the amount of people. They are all popular with the Thai weekend package tours.
In all cases you pay the Koh Rang fee, 200bt for westerners and 40bt for Thais, once in the Marine Park. Kids under 10 are 100bt and 20bt respectively.
Sunshine Resort on Ao Phrao Beach offers both snorkeling and fishing on 1/2 day trips. The Memory 408, a small bungalow resort inland in Klong Chao, has its own speedboat for both fishing and snorkeling.
Over on Bang Bao Beach, Diver Club Koh Kood at Koh Kood Resort or directly at Siam Beach Resort, you can also find similar trips on offer – just ask.
In the same area, you’ll find one of Koh Kood’s best drinking spots, Bartist. They too lay on a couple of party snorkeling trips during the season – just ask at the bar for details on the next date or check their Facebook page.
You can also snorkel using the dive boats, with them going out either locally at 1,000bt per person, over to Koh Rang at 1,200bt or to the wreck at Koh Chang for 1,500bt. Transfers and lunch are included, park fees where applicable are extra.
Private Snorkeling Trips
You can charter private speedboats, for 2 to 10 persons or more to visit the different spots such as Koh Raet and the undeveloped beaches on the north west coast. As a guide, prices start at 10,500bt (subject to number of people) including transfers to and from your resort. Larger groups can be accommodated on the classic two decked wooden boats.
If you are interested in a private snorkeling trip by speedboat, whether as a couple, a family or group of friends, then please do contact us. We can also provide larger wooden boats as needed (wedding parties or such like).
Once we know your preferred date and requirements, the numbers in your group, we will come back to you with prices and availability.
Koh Kood Fishing
The snorkling companies all offer fishing trips too, with prices at around 1,500bt for 2 persons for a couple of hours. Additional people are charged at 500bt but it is all open to some negotiation.
On the jetty at Ao Salad, Dutchman Fishing Tours, complete with its own small guesthouse, offers full day and overnight fishing tours on its bespoke GPS boat, prices dependent on numbers and destinations.
Kayaks are rented out at 300bt for a half day and this too is a great way of exploring the coastline and mangrove-lined klongs (canals), in particular giving you a different way to access the Koh Kood waterfalls.
