Koh Surin National Marine Park rates as one of Thailand's prime island locations. The two main islands Koh Surin Nua (North Surin Island) and Koh Surin Tai (South Surin Island) form the bulk of the land mass. The other 3 satellite islands both enhance the overground vistas and provide supplementary fringing reef.
The entire Surin archepelago covers a region greater than 320 km² and includes the picturesque island of Koh Tachai and sublime scuba diving at Richelieu Rock where the large pelagic favourites, Manta Rays and Whale Sharks, are often sighted.
The Marine Park headquarters are situated on the North island. They are tastefully designed, blending with the surroundings. Thankfully the National Park has not pushed the development of the island too far. Visitors can stay on the island and sleep at the camp site or in one of the bungalows.
All our Surin Islands snorkeling trips depart from Khuraburi pier. Transfer is included between Khuraburi Town and Khuraburi Pier.
We can arrange accommodation in Khuraburi Town at Boon Piya Resort when booked in conjunction with a Surin Islands trip. Boon Piya Resort is owned and run by the charismatic Panich Apichitsakul. The resort provides delightful bungalows in the heart of Kuraburi. All rooms come with hot and cold running water, air-conditioning and TV.
Panich speaks excellent English and is willing to provide you with any assistance that you may require including motorcycles for rent and ordering bus tickets. A true Khuraburi original, he can give you the lowdown on local events and give you impartial advice on where to go and what to see.
Situated only 100m from Kuraburi bus station and close to local amenities, Boon Piya is the ideal stopover for those on Surin Islands snorkeling trips. It is great value at only 750Bt+ a night per bungalow.
Transfers are included between Khao Lak and Khuraburi Pier before and after Surin Islands trips.
Khuraburi is a small market town and there are a handful of places to stay. We can help reserve you a room at Boon Piya Resort - Khuraburi in combination with a Surin Islands Trip booking.
Khao Lak is a more popular option with visitors as there is a large variety of accommodation available for all budgets. The main difference is the transfer time between Khao Lak and Khuraburi Pier is 1 - 1 1/2 hours so this means an earlier departure from your hotel in the morning.
Phuket transfers are available for overnight trips only. They depart Phuket early in the morning at 5.00 -5.30am and do not arrive back into Phuket until after 8.00pm. The Phuket return transfer service carries a 500Bt surcharge (250Bt each way).
The Surin Islands rate as one of the top snorkeling locations in Thailand.
Long broad and shallow coral reefs line the sheltered eastern coast - good for beginner snorkelers.
Offshore sites scattered around the Surin Islands offer more challenging snorkeling and the chance to view larger animals such as sharks & rays
The Surin Islands are located in the Andaman Sea off the west coast of Thailand. The nearest town is the port town of Khuraburi, situated on the mainland about 60km east.
They are situated surprisingly close to the Myanmar border; being only 12km south of the Burmese Christie island.
The Surin Islands Marine Park hosts a phenomenal range of flora and fauna on the land and in the sea.
The casual eco-tourist will see a glimpse of the park's promise on a Surin Islands day trip. The committed naturalist can marvel at the impressive bio-diversity on Surin 3d2n Tour.
