Ko Ha Yai - a midday stop and excellent snorkelling

Ko Ha Yai is not really suitable for an overnight stop and it can get very busy, for good reason with dive boats and snorkelling trips.  We were fortunate and picked up a deep water buoy just off the reef left vacant by a departing dive boat.  The snorkelling was great and it was easy to see why one of the rocks is called Floating Island.

 

The Floating Island – it is fun snorkelling through the gap
