Phi Phi Snorkeling

Snorkeling on Phi Phi island is a pleasure I have enjoyed since 1992. The shear variety, the unexpected, always give me a great anticipation for every new encounter.

From the simple reefs on the mountain end of Tonsai Bay on Phi Phi Don to the remote soft corals of Mosquito Island to the north of the Phi Phi islands, to the huge boulders behind Phi Phi Don to the dark deep caverns at Wang Long Bay there is always something new to see.

Some of my favorite snorkel trips involves the caves near Nui Bay where large clouds of baitfish sit in balls of black only to be disturbed by the odd snorkeler or Long Tom (fish).

The other favorite trip is the shark watch snorkel trip on Long Beach where I have seen many black tip sharks on all 50+ times I have been there. The trick is to get their at sunrise.
