Didnt snorkel on samui but took a day trip to Ang Thong National Park (take the speedboat tour - only a few baht extra and you save about 2 hours) and the snorkelling was good.

Got back from Koh Samui yesterday, we looked everwhere for snorkelling and its poor on Koh Samui. Visibility at the Marine

National Park is poor at the moment and on the trip they only give you an hour in water. We went over to Koh Tao for a night which was fantastic for snorkelling. You can get there by Catamaran and when you arrive there will be taxi- boat drivers waiting to take you to a resort. You can take one of these boats and they will take you to a remote resort good for snorkelling - and may be possible to see whale sharks in March? the accommodation costs 200b - 1000b depending on fan or air con. Can go for day trip but only get couple of hours of snorkelling, so at least if you go on your own steam as we did you can have hours in the water!!Hope this is of some use to you
