Private Longtail Trip to Ko Rok
Koh Rok is the white sand beach and blue seas island that people dream about.
Ko Rok is actually two islands Ko Rok Nok and Ko Rok Nai, separated by a narrow 250 metre wide channel. Protected as part of Mu Ko Lanta National Park, these twin islands are some of the most beautiful in Thailand’s Andaman Sea.
The beaches here are pristine with talcum-powder like soft coral sand and crystal clear waters, perfect for snorkeling. Ko Rok is probably the best snorkeling around Ko Lanta to view pristine marine life without actually going scuba diving – however if you want to go scuba diving, or learn to dive, then we recommend Scubafish in Kantiang.
As well as lots of hard and soft corals, you’ll see a huge variety of marine life such as anemones, giant clams, angelfish, pufferfish, clownfish (Nemo!), moray eels, parrot fish, lionfish and many, many more. If you’re lucky you may even spot a sea turtle or black tip reef shark.
Also, keep an eye out for the large monitor lizards that prowl around the island – many are well over a meter long!
In high season the main beach at Ko Rok Nai can get busy, but as you have your own private boat, we often visit the less busy spots so you can enjoy this desert island paradise Robinson Crusoe style, away from the crowds.
Once arriving at Ko Rok we’ll typically stop at a few snorkeling sites before heading to a beach for lunch and some spectacular photo opportunities, then we can do more snorkeling, or move to a different beach, or if there’s been any rain recently, there’s an impressive cliff-side waterfall on Ko Rok Nok that is always worth a look. As its your private longtail for the day, its entirely up to you – the captain however usually knows the best places to visit!
