Simba Coral Delight Tour is the best way to discover the wonderful underwater world around Phuket. In Simba management's opinion, the coral reefs we visit on this tour at the aptly named Coral Island and Mai Thon islands are some of the best snorkeling conditions you can experience in the region, with crystal clear waters, calm seas and abundance of different corals and fish species. We occasionally spot a pod of dolphins that frequents the local waters here also.
After two great snorkeling stops we lounge around the emerald green waters in a spectacular secret location at the foot of towering limestone cliffs typical of the region as seen in Phang Nga bay and the Phi Phi islands. Calm waters and no other tour boats to contend with at this location will make this a truly peaceful, relaxing and memorable experience.
We provide you with the chance to see everything you desire with speedboat tours designed to beat the crowds and allow you to experience our local islands the way they are meant to be experienced. Seeing the coral reefs, stunning cliffs and other eye-opening sights in ultimate comfort really does make all the difference.
Following a morning of swimming, snorkelling and taking in the majestic limestone scenery, we whisk you off to an idyllic, rustic tropical island for a yummy Thai lunch and swimming on a beautiful beach.

Simba’s Coral Delight tour involves an early start on our magnificent speedboat with our customary small group sizes that sets Simba apart from all other Phuket tour operators that operate on much larger passenger loads. Firstly, our Coral Delight tour from Phuket leaves from the Royal Marina at 7:30am and arrives back by 2.30pm to avoid the crowds. This is AT LEAST 2 hours before most other companies start their Phuket boat tours to these beautiful underwater paradises at Coral Island and the private island Koh Mai Thon. Keep in mind that hundreds of visitors flock to these islands every day in the high season. That’s a lot of people to share these small coral reefs with! But not with our spacious speedboats! Enjoy a head start to your tour that will mean you won’t have to deal with the crowds that other Thailand travelers have to deal with.
To ensure the greatest Phuket experience possible, our Coral Delight tour is very flexible. We juggle many variables (weather, tides, currents) to ensure you have the best day tour experience possible. Other companies may promise the world, but we and our tour guide staff deliver the ultimate Phuket snorkeling experience!

Experience the underwater world- 1st Snorkeling Stop. Mai Thon Island
Located at the back of an exclusive private island, we pull into this beautiful well protected cove well before the majority of all other tour boats. Here you'll see an abundance of fish life and a vast array of corals beautiful manicured like an underworld garden. Clear and calm water and the chance to be visited by some curious dolphins make this snorkeling stop a must see on anyone's travel itinerary in the region. Expect to snorkel here fro around 45 minutes before we set off to the next snorkeling location.
Coral and Crystal Waters - 2nd Snorkeling Stop. Coral Island
Aptly named, this is another of Phuket's premium and most beautiful snorkeling locations. Often visited by passing super-yachts, this particular snorkeling location features a great variety in species and layout of coral. Expect to enjoy the snorkeling here for around 45 minutes. We are generally finishing our snorkeling for the day here whilst a bunch of other tour boats are just beginning to arrive.
Swim and Relax at stunning Limestone cliff. Secret Location!
A feature of this tour only is one of favorite swimming spots. We can almost guarantee to have this location entirely to ourselves in absolute peace and serenity as it's well off the beaten tour boat paths. Float around in the beautiful emerald green, warm waters on our lounges and swim noodles and take in the sounds of nature, the stunning limestone Karsts whilst local Thai farmers silently clamor around the cliffs in search of the local produce ingredients for bird's nest soups.
Tropical Islands at their best - Koh Rang Yai
Our last stop on the Coral Delight Tour for some swimming and relaxation at an idyllic tropical island named Rang Yai. A well-kept secret you'll not want to leave! During the Coral Delight Tour you will have the chance to see many glorious places, but make no mistake this amazing island is one of the best.
Lunch time- Rang yai
Lunch at a seaside restaurant with all the flavors of the islands. Many travelers have enjoyed the scrumptious family style lunch. Because Simba leaves early in the morning you’ll reach this beautiful beach-side restaurant well before the crowds. The Coral Delight boat tours enhance your culinary palette thanks to the unique island’s cuisine. Here, Thai Cooking takes its place front and center. The refreshments are provided in one of the most beautiful island settings imaginable with your feet in the sand at a rustic and friendly, beach-side environment. A perfect reward and the nourishment you need after a long day swimming and snorkeling. Its then back on the boat as we set sail the short distance back to the Phuket Marina to end a sensational, and memorable tour.
