Snorkelling on Ko Lipe

a fun day trip

What we say: 3.5 stars

For non-divers still eager to get better acquainted with Lipe's marine life, there are plenty of opportunities to snorkel around Lipe and the surrounding islands.

You can snorkel in the water off the beaches and most resorts rent out snorkels and fins (100 baht each is the going rate). The water surrounding Lipe is crystal clear, but the boat traffic scares away a lot of the fish near the beach.

Snorkelling trips by longtail boats to the nearby islands have become very popular, and your odds of seeing creatures like clownfish and anemones are better here. These trips usually include lunch and will take you to four islands -- Ko Jabang, Ko Hin Ngam, Ko Rawi and Ko Adang. Prices are around 400 baht per person plus another 100 baht for snorkel rental. If you have a large group you can book the whole boat for 1,400 baht. Dang-Dee Tour Service or Friends Tour can book these for you.

A few of the diving boats can also accommodate snorkellers, and the going rate seems to be 500 baht for a day trip including lunch; enquire at Forra Diving or Ocean Pro.
