Explore Surin Islands by speedboat at Mu Ko Surin National Park, Try snorkeling, see Sea Gypsy Village & beautiful coral reef

We’ve found paradise, and it’s located in the Andaman Sea. Comprising an archipelago of gorgeous, untouched islands and islets located 60 kilometres off the western coast of Thailand and a few kilometres away from the Myanmar-Thailand oceanic border, the Surin Islands, known locally as Koh Surin, are a haven for wildlife and ocean biodiversity due to its remote location, as well as fantastic nature preservation efforts. On the Surin Islands Snorkeling by Speedboat Tour, you get to experience arguably the finest snorkeling in Thailand and embrace a feeling of becoming one with nature as you enjoy unspoiled nature at its best. In addition to exquisite coral reefs and pristine waters, you’ll also get to broaden your cultural horizons as you learn more about the fascinating sea gypsy customs of the ‘landless’ Moken people, who base themselves in the vicinity of Koh Surin. The day gets underway bright and early with a refreshing light breakfast at the pier, where you’ll get ready for the fabulous day ahead. As you set sail for the turquoise waters of your Surin Island expedition, enjoy the wind in your hair as you travel in style on a speedboat. Before you know it, you’ll be introduced to incredible culture of the nomadic Moken people inhabiting the waters of the Andaman Coast of Myanmar and Thailand, as you make your way to a fascinating sea gypsy village. The Moken traditionally spent most of their lives on houseboats, moving from bay to bay depending on the wind and weather; however, an estimated 150 Moken people currently inhabit Koh Surin. Catching a glimpse of these unique sea nomads and their mystifying customs is an eye-opening experience that will surely leave a lasting impression. When it comes to snorkelling, the Surin Islands are in a league of their own. During the glorious speedboat trip, you’ll stop at several jaw-dropping snorkeling spots, where you can feel all your worries melt away as you explore stunning seascapes and get acquainted with beautiful coral reef life. As the Mu Ko Surin National Park (Koh Surin National Park) encompasses the archipelago of the Surin Islands and their surrounding waters, the area of over 140 square kilometres makes for the most amazing sea exploration possible. Feast your eyes on vibrant, colourful coral reefs and keep your eyes peeled for everything from sea turtles to whale sharks, manta rays, and possibly more, as these protected waters are known for inhabiting some of the most thriving coral ecosystems in Thailand. All this action will, of course, be complemented by a delectable lunch at a Koh Surin National Park restaurant, where you’ll also be able to soak up the sun, relax on the beach, and catch your breath before continuing to explore the crystalline waters. After a day onboard this awesome speedboat, leave feeling inspired by the stunning beauty of Thailand’s most treasured resource – its intensely beautiful nature – and appreciate the undeniable benefits of supporting ecotourism.
