Scuba diving and snorkeling on a daytrip
On our Koh Chang boat trip, everyone can have fun in the water, no matter what they like to do. You can go scuba diving, take a beginner’s diving course, or go snorkeling, all on the same boat! This means families and friends can all enjoy different activities but still be together. Dive deep to see beautiful coral, learn diving basics from experts, or just float and snorkel to see colorful fish. It’s a great way for everyone to have an awesome day at sea.
Dive Spots: Local Sites and National Park
Local Sites with HTMS Chang
When you join us for a day trip, one of the exciting places we often visit is the local dive sites, including the famous HTMS Chang shipwreck. This shipwreck is a must-see and offers a thrilling experience for divers. It’s like an underwater playground where you can explore and see lots of marine life.
Another amazing option is diving in the National Park area. This place is all about natural beauty. You’ll see colorful coral reefs and maybe even some unique sea creatures you’ve never seen before. It’s a different vibe from the local sites but equally amazing.
Busy Days and Regular Days
Now, here’s the cool part: On busy days, we actually go to both the local sites and the National Park in one day! That means you get the best of both worlds. On less busy days, we alternate between the two. So, one day we might go to the local sites, and the next day, we’ll head to the National Park.
