Snorkeling Around Koh Tao (Thailand)

AMAZING. The island of Koh Tao is the "it" spot for scuba diving in Thailand. People from all over the world to this tiny island and stay for months to dive. Sadly we did not have the time to go through scuba diving lessons and everything that comes with it so we opted for the alternative, snorkeling. A boat took us out to several locations around the island where we were able to explore the beauty beneath the sea. Unfortunately, the majority of sites we went to -because they were closer to land rather than out in the middle of the ocean- did not have much live coral. There was however countless varieties and colors of fish at the snorkeling sites that were memorizing and certainly made for a great time. I would go back to Koh Tao to try out scuba diving because Koh Tao is one of the best places to view whale sharks! That would be awesome to see.
I don't have any snorkeling photos because I don't have a special waterproof camera, but these are some of the shots I took from the boat of Koh Tao.
