Important Announcement from the Similan National Park Service
The Similan and Surin National Parks will open as usual on the 15th of October. However for the 2016-2017 Koh Tachai will remain closed for all day trip activities.
How This Effects our Snorkeling Tour?
Luckily for us the closure of Tachai does not have much impact on our snorkeling tour. Our philosophy has always been to avoid the crowded snorkeling spots close to the island, instead opting to snorkel at the better dive spots such as Koh Tachai Pinnacle. These sites are to remain open.
The Only Change to our Snorkeling Itinerary
We will no longer be able to visit the beach at Koh Tachai. This is a shame but we fully support the National Park’s decision to make environmental protection the priority at Koh Tachai. After our snorkel stops at Koh Tachai we will head straight to the Surin Islands and spend more time snorkeling and visiting beaches there.
