Best snorkelling spots near Patong?

Hi all,

It's our first trip to Thailand in two weeks. We're braving monsoon season! hopefully it's not too bad, but judging by the forecasts, its rain and storms all along >_<

We're wondering we're the best snorkelling spots are near/ish Patong?

We're also heading to Phi Phi for four nights. Any must-do's besides Maya beach whilst there?

Thank you all! :)

Hi Indie the conditions for snorkelling and swimming off the beaches are far too rough and dangerous due to the rip tides at the moment. So rather consider going on a daytrip boat to do some snorkelling. I recommend that you arrange this when you arrive so that you can check out the weather conditions then.
