I visit two popular dive sites for fun dive.
- 'Hin Luk Bat' rock pinnacle
- 'Hin Rab' rock pinnacle
Price 2,200bht for 2 day dives included all gear dive, lunch, and transportation from/to the accommodation. Not much expensive.
Should be able to book a trip snorkelling from most places in Ko Chang and most are selling the same trip at different prices, we paid 500 baht per person while most others were charging 700+.
Will be picked up from your resort (or where ever u say) in the morning and brought to Bang Bao the village port on stilts. This is where the boats leave from.
The boat then takes you to probably 3 locations for snorkelling and a beach to chill at half way. The snorkelling is great at Ko Chang with plenty of marine life and coral to see. The beach though is probably the best beach i've seen and i've seen a lot in Thailand.
You will be fed on the boat with a barbecue onboard mostly sea food but some potatos and stuff aswell and different types of sauces. You can also buy crisps and tins of fizzy pop if u don't like the food. The boat I was on had a small dinghy speedboat aswell with it which took people out for trips and pulled people along and just fooled about which was a good laugh.
Best thing about it was flying fish would jump out of the water and fly along beside the boat.
Equipment: I bought an underwater camera 500 baht at the local 7/11 but the photos weren't great as you can see by my photo. The colour does'nt show and the feesh in the photo are meant to be yellow it looks hundred times better to be there than the photo as it has also been scanned. Should bring a digital camera with an aguapac for better photos.
You get snorkelling equipment onboard but you maybe charged for flippers as i was.
Can rent kayaks on all the beaches the best beach we found for kayaking was Kai Bae beach where you are able to go out to small deserted islands.
Equipment: Can get equipment from most places renting snorkels and flippers aswell as the kayak if you want to try snorkelling. Use proper trips when it comes to snorkelling probably less expensive, and you are brought to some beautiful islands, you need to try these.
Koh Chang is Thailand's second largest island and there is a whole lot of ocean and beach. Koh Chang in located in the Gulf of Thailand, Pacific Ocean. The water is EXTREMELY warm! Swimming is a lot of fun. The water is shallow for several meters out, but be careful the tides are strong!
Equipment: Goggles/mask would be good so your eyes dont get salty. On another note, you can be arrested in Thailand for nude bathing, it's against the law.
Try to get a snorkeling package from Ban Bang Pao. More choices there and the price might cheaper.
I get a package at 450 baht which include snorkeling at 4 places, lunch and fruit along the trip.
