This was a great activity and one of the most budget friendly options for water sports. There was parasailing, sea walking, jet ski, banana boat ride, water slide, glass bottom boat and snorkeling activity. Sea food lunch was good - 1 fried chicken leg, 1 crab and 1 prawn for each, and noodles, rice, lettuce, chicken soup with medium chicken pieces, and a fish to be shared on the table with 5-6 people. Please note Free hotel pick up is only provided if you stay along North Pattaya road, Central Pattaya road, South Pattaya Road or along the beach near these roads. Otherwise you have to pay 200 THB per person (so better to take taxi/Grab/songthaew tuc-tuc if more than 1 person). Also for snorkeling, if you have glasses and high negative power (Mine is : -3.5), you would not able to see much as you have to leave your glasses to wear the snorkeling mask. If you know swimming it is better, they do provide life jackets to all (it keeps you afloat always) and net rafts to non-swimmers. Since I was a non-swimmer I had to hold the rope and row the net raft with my hands to roam. If you know swimming you can roam around and view the corals properly. For snorkeling your nose is covered in mask and you have to breathe through mouth with a pipe. My father was uncomfortable with it and came out of water soon. Just take a note. This was a great experience.

This experience made my Pattaya visit the most memorable one. The activities were highly organised with staffs taking care of each tourist personally. There were many activities like Parasailing, Sea walking, Banana boat, Jet ski, Glass boat, etc. apart from Snorkelling and the views were great with fishes and corals living in harmony. In addition to it there was sea food (the other option was Indian food) which was delicious after day long activity of 4 hours. The experience was worthwhile and something to remember for a very long time.

The services will be on a sharing basis, thus other people will accompany you. For those who do not want to avail of this, they can directly reach the venue by taking local transport like tuk-tuks or taxis.
Essentially, snorkelling is a surface sport. If you are an adult and don't know how to snorkel, then you too can try this fun as well as adventurous sport. Essentially, you do not need to know swimming for snorkelling in Pattaya, you just need to be able to get your head under the water without panicking. However, in the case of kids, knowing swimming is a must, as the water which may seem less to an adult, could be deep for kids. Snorkeling does not require you to push your arms and legs as in swimming, thus even if you are a beginner you too can try this activity.
Clothes specifically made for swimming or water activities are recommended for pattaya snorkelling. A swimsuit or a bodysuit and a pair of water shoes or flip flops will work best for your trip. You can also wear a t-shirt and a pair of shorts if you want, but make sure they are tucked in well. Do not wear any loose clothing or dangling jewellery. Other essential items required for snorkelling will be provided to you at the venue.
November to March being the winter season is considered to be the best time to visit here. Around this time, rainfall is less and you can easily watch the beautiful marine life in its crystal clear shores. You can also consider doing Pattaya snorkelling between May to August, as the place receives quite a high sunlight around this time, and doing water sports around this time is preferred by many people.
Snorkeling in Pattaya is safe as well as fun. Since the place is surrounded by multiple other small islands and has calm surroundings and environment, snorkelling and swimming around here is very common. A snorkelling package if booked through Thrillophilia, offers full safety be it of your money or you yourself. Every year almost eighty percent of tourists try this extreme sport in Pattaya, thus assuring the safety point. Also, supervision is a very prominent step while going for snorkelling. Make sure you have proper guidance while entering the shallow reefs and try not to go alone.

To make your trip a memorable one, this package includes meals too, so you would not need to wander here or there for the food. As soon as you are done, a proper drop off service will be provided around 3:30 PM, which will take you back to your stay.
