Koh Phangan Snorkeling Tips

- Use thick sunscreen or wear a T-shirt; the sun’s rays are magnified by sea
- Make sure that your equipment fits you;
- Be wary of fishing boats and make yourself as visible as possible while snorkelling
- Snorkel with good visibility.Only snorkel in clear water. Phangan’s waters is generally pretty clear all year round. Make sure to check the conditions before you head to the beach.
- Always defog your mask before diving. No use snorkeling amongst colourful tropical fish if you can’t see them
- Kicking from the hip is the most effective way to use your fins
- Please try not to touch the coral under any circumstances. Remember that coral is a living thing. Touching it and stepping on it actually kills it. Respect the coral and sealife!
