Snorkelling - Karon Beach

Hi All,

Is there any reasonable snorkelling off the beach at Karon and if so where?

On a calm day are there options suitable for small kids?

Are there any other family options nearby?

You have very nice snorkeling at the south end of the Karon Beach, I been lucky and seen small reef sharks there :-)

Phuket Scuba Club have one of their shops (a small shop with blue roof next to the Ruam Thep in restaurant) on the beach at south end, from them you can rent snorkeling gear and get some good advise :-)

Or...why not try scuba diving for a day, its fun, its exiting and its easy!

(can be addicted though...:-) )

Other family options .... Mini golf at Dino Park is a nice way to spend the evening, (the mini golf is build as Jurassic Park, kids love that) or surf house on Kata Beach,(depending on kids age.. )

Happy Holiday!

Between November and April snorkeling at the south end is possible, other times of year not.
