Private snorkeling trip around the islands

Ko Lipe Diving - Private snorkeling trip

These last 2 days I hosted a snorkeling trip around the islands for a few guests from Bangkok who wanted a private trip tailored to their desires. We started each day at their chosen time, arranged the food, fruit and alcoholic beverages of their choice, and at their request I accompanied them as their personal guide and photographer. We visited not only the most popular snorkeling sites, we also discovered new ones as we cruised around the archipelago, jumping in wherever the scenery underneath the surface of the clear waters looked promising. We explored isolated beaches, each more stunning than the next. The flexibility of a private trip such as this meant that if one place was a bit crowded or not so nice, I would simply ask the boat captain to take us to another spot, drawing on my knowledge of the beaches and snorkeling sites in the archipelago. They loved the experience and I got to rediscover just how beautiful this archipelago really is.

A beautiful beach on the southwest coast of Koh Rawi – the whitest, softest, most powdery sand imaginable, completely deserted and absolutely silent except for the occasional bird call
