Snorkeling sites

Popular snorkeling and dive spots 

The BB Divers’ boats typically head out to the colorful coral sites in Koh Rang National Park, many snorkelers’ favorite, or to the exciting wreck HTMS Chang and local coral sites. 

The national park is a group of islands where fishing is not allowed. It offers an abundance of marine life and very healthy coral reefs. On our trips there we make a stop near a beach as well, some time to relax or snorkel near the reef.

The HTMS Chang wreck and coral sites nearer to Koh Chang are also great snorkeling as long as we have calm sea. The combination of 2 coral sites and 1 stop near the wreck make sure for a great snorkeling day. With wavy weather we do not snorkel here, but in high season we have lovely snorkeling in these spots.

1.Koh Rang National Park snorkeling sites

Koh Thien West

This island has recovered nicely after a lot of its coral was destroyed many years ago. It is actually nice to see how the coral reef can recover once it catches on again and comes back better then before.  On the southside of the island there is the biggest formation of stag horn coral you’re likely to see, forming a stunning view and protection to an abundance of fish. A great snorkeling site.

Hin Kuak Ma (or three finger reef)

This is the only snorkeling site which is not around an island but near a rock. It has healthy coral and a nice variety of marine life. The south side is a rock wall, good to spot eels, nudibranchs, stone fish etc. The backside of the rock is a slope, covered in coral, and with an abundance of fish. Sometimes we spot a bamboo shark or turtle, every dive we see blue spotted stingrays, moray eels, blue ringed angelfish, parrotfish. Good snorkeling if there is no current.

Koh Yak and Koh Laun

These small islands just next to eachother are the most popular snorkeling area, they are ringed with a very beautiful coral reef with a rich abundance of different coral fishes. Both islands are small enough to snorkel around them.

Koh Tong Lang and Koh Kra

These 2 islands are different in coloring and coral reef from the rest of koh Rang, snorkeling is the major appeal here, these islands offer some beautiful reefs. The special-colored rocks offer nice crevices rich in fish life; the coral is very healthy and varied, big table corals, stag horn, anemones of all sizes and colors.

2.Koh Chang sites

HTMS Chang Shipwreck

On 22 November 2012, the HTMS Chang was intentionally sunk. The wreck rapidly became the most popular dive site of Koh Chang, suited for diving and snorkeling. It now is an impressive artificial reef teeming with marine life. Although the wreck is not a typical snorkeling site, there is so much fish on it that experienced snorkelers will love it.

When visiting the wreck we combine with 2 coral sites, most popular being:

Hin Luk Bath

One of the premier coral sites around Koh Chang, Hin Luk Bath boasts a pinnacle that attracts an abundance of shoaling fish. The coral is ringed around a rock pinnacle with marine life from a few meters deep up to 20 meters of depth. This makes the site great for snorkeling and diving. 

Hin Raab South (locals call it Hin Laab)

This rocky site boasts a diverse array of coral. Hi Raab usually has clear water which makes it a favorite site to visit. The coral reef is spread out over the sandy bottom and around the rock, offering excellent opportunities to spot turtles, batfish, stonefish, porcupine fish, stingrays, moray eels, and occasionally, large barracuda. We’ve also had several sightings of whale sharks here. Soft coral abounds in this location. 

Hin Tai nam (blueberry hill)

This site is located close to Hin Raab, a bare rock full of fish, on the southside there is a nice coral garden. 

Hin Rua Tek (Banana Rock)

A rocky dive site, with nice crevices to search for shrimp, lobster, nudibranch, et cetera. There are big table corals, gorgonian fans, soft corals, sponges and more.  We do not visit this site often since the visibility is less good than other sites around there, but on a clear day it is a brilliant site to explore.

 3.Others

Koh Wai, Koh Khlum, Koh Lao ya and Koh Ngam

These lovely paradise islands south of Koh Chang are great for a half day trip. Beautiful snorkeling, but for diving the reefs are too shallow. For this reason, we only visit it on designated snorkeling days eg. half day speedboat trip. The reef is less colorful than in k rang nat park, but the lovely beaches make up for that. The combination snorkeling and visiting the tropical island make them a great snorkel destination.

Koh Kood

We only visit the sites around koh Kood leaving from there, but if you would like more info about dive sites at Koh Kood, please click on the links below:
