Depart the hotel between 7am and 8am for a drive to the jetty to board a speedboat for the hour cruise to Mo Ko Surin National Park. Famous for being the best snorkelling destination in all of Thailand, the five-island archipelago is heartachingly beautiful, whether above or below the water. The islands have thrived because of their remote location and its status as a protected marine sanctuary.  

You’ll stop at three snorkelling destinations around the islands.  Offering some of the best visibility for underwater life in Thailand, you’ll often think you’re swimming in an aquarium. Under the surface it is stocked with corals, turtles, sharks, moray eels and an endless variety of tropical fish.  

After working up an appetite, go ashore for lunch at the national park canteen where the staff cook excellent Thai food.  Afterwards, you’ll have time to enjoy the sandy beaches and short walking trails surrounding the national park headquarters.  

During the trip you’ll stop to visit the Moken people.  Their village, which is one of the last living a semi-traditional life, is situated on South Surin Island although modern encroachments are becoming more present. You’ll have time to wander the beachfront stilted houses and interact with the community who are often all too happy to sell trinkets to supplement the income they harvest from the sea.  

In the late afternoon, you’ll depart for the return boat and van transfer before arriving to your hotel in Khao Lak.
