You can do a lot of things on Koh Rong, including but not limited to partying, relaxing on the beach, water adventures, island hopping, and so on. In fact, there are so many waterfalls and villages around to explore that you might need to do a few boat trips to actually see it all.
So, one of the best things to do when trying to explore Koh Rong is to take a full-day boat tour. This boat tour includes snorkeling, fishing, local village tour, and so on. Now, you might be thinking how you can find a good boat tour to explore the Koh Rong island?
Well, you have two options. You can either search online for a boat tour operator like I did. And I found Adventure Adam which is a local boat tour company and is a good one too. They offer a boat tour on specific days which usually lasts from 9:30 a.m. in the morning to 7:00 p.m. in the evening. This tour includes lunch, snacks, fishing, snorkeling, 2 Cambodian beers, cold drinks, water, village tour, bornfire, marshmallows, and swimming with the glowing planktons. They also provide all the equipment for snorkeling, fishing, etc. and charge just 25-30 USD for the boat trip.
However, you don't have to choose this boat tour if you have a few days with you. You can reach the island and then explore to find a suitable boat tour for yourself. In Koh Touch village, you will stumble upon several such boat tours which you can choose for yourself.
Things Included in the One-Day Boat Trip
Here are a few things to expect from full day boat trips in Koh Rong:
Snorkeling to Observe the Magnificent Coral Reefs
The first thing that you can expect in the boat tour is traveling to a good snorkeling spot away from the inhabited land in Koh Rong. Usually, this spot is around 30-40 minutes away from the Koh Touch village and one can see sea urchins, catfish, and some other exotic fishes in the area.
The tour guide provides you with adequately sized snorkeling gear and then helps you in getting acquainted with the water. You also have a lifejacket to keep you safe so, there is literally nothing to worry about.
Over the course of the entire day, you can enjoy snorkeling at 2-3 spots depending on the weather. So, this is definitely a great experience for all the snorkeling enthusiasts.
