FAQs – Snorkeling Trips
Do I need to know how to swim to go snorkeling?
If you do not know how to swim, and wish to learn snorkeling, please ask us for a private guide – there will be an additional charge (depending on availability).
Is there a Snorkel Guide in the water with the snorkelers?
We provide a Snorkel Guide on selected trips – generally the Phi Phi trips. The maximum group size is about 10 snorkelers, but can vary depending on conditions and age and ability of snorkelers. All other trips are independent snorkeling without a guide, however our staff will give you a thorough briefing about safety issues, the sites and the equipment.
Can snorkelers go on the same boat as the divers?
All of our trips are suitable for both snorkelers and divers.
How do I breathe when I am snorkeling?
You will use a snorkel – this is essentially a long tube with a mouthpiece (and one-way valve) that you hold in your mouth to breathe through while you are face-down at the surface.
Do you have an underwater photographer?
Yes, a photographer is available on select trips. Photo packages vary in price. Ask for more information.
Can my friend/family/partner come along as a passenger?
Yes, they can come along and enjoy the sun and the views.
Do I need to rent or buy snorkeling equipment for your trips?
Standard snorkeling equipment is provided from our well-maintained rental stock, comprising Mask, Snorkel, Fins and a Portable Flotation Device.
