Phuket Let’s Go brings you to new destinations and horizons with this day trip to Rok Islands. These islands are pretty far from Phuket but the journey is well worth it with 3 amazing snorkeling locations throughout the day.
Get picked up from your hotel before 7am and go to Royal Phuket Marina for a light breakfast before the trip. The boat departs at 7:30am and is usually not crowded (30pax max in a 47pax capacity boat). Depending on the tide table we will either make a first stop halfway in Pileh Cove in the PhiPhi islands, If the tide is too low, we go straight to Koh Rok and will come back to Pileh Cove in the afternoon.
The first snorkeling spot is quite impressive and consists of 3 large rocks in the middle of the sea with a lot of fishes a very colourful corals. If you are lucky, you might even spot some clown fishes (Nemos) playing in the soft sea weed. You will be fitted with all safety equipment if you require it (life jacket, snorkel and fins). Later on, we get back on the boat for a short ride onto the white stretch of sands of Koh Rok.
We will stop on the main island for about 2hours so you can relax by the beach with a fresh drink on us. You may also walk around as there is a trail which is the old “Tsunami evacuation trail” with some stunning natural sceneries all around. Lunch will be served on the beach ( in the shade of course) and is a delicious Thai food buffet. 1 or 2 dishes are always vegetarian options if you request it.
Then we hop back on the boat and go for the 2nd snorkeling spot of the day with impressive coral formations. There are a bit less fishes there but beautiful live coral ! it’s also ok to jump off the boat for some extra fun time, just watch where you jump before you do ! Then we hop back on the boat for a 3rd stop snorkeling either around Rok, either in Pileh Cove depending onthe morning tidetable.
You will be back at Royal Phuket Marina around 4:30pm and will be served a little ice-cream if you like 🙂 Then it’s time to get back to your hotel in air-conditioned minivan.
