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 and across the road, TJ Boats at Mark House, both offer standard snorkeling trips on their different sized speedboats. Prices range from 600bt per person for a 1/2 day locally to 1,200bt for a full day over to Koh Rang. Transfers and lunch are included. Note that you pay the Koh Rang fee, 200bt for westerners and 40bt for Thais, once in the Marine Park.
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.
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.
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.
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.
