Hello all,

im planning my vacation next summer. I am a student so i have a low budget. (For 30 Days 40 € a Day, Flight payed)

I want to go Spearfishing and a little bit of traveling, 2-4 Spots in arround 4 weeks.

But I have no clue where to go. Thailland. To wich Airport should I fly, than where to go?

I find a lot of old stuff in the Internet,maby some of you have current Infos about where to go. I want to create a Spearfishing route in Thailland.

So can you tell me some nice Spots in thailland wich i connect with a Route.


My Equipment:
- SeacSub 3,5 mm Spearfishing Suit
- Leaderfins Carbon Fins
- Rob Allen Tuna ( using 1 rubber most of the Time)

Spearfishing Experience
- Cuba or Greece every Summer (got family on Cuba, but fish is rare)

I will be in Thailand this January. I will go to Koh Chang and do some spearfishing there. Koh Chang is the only place I know in Thailand, never had much time to explore the rest of the country, perhaps not the best place but I simply don't know any better. Taxi ride from Bangkok airport all the way to Koh Chang costs just over 100$, including ferry ride. Waters around Koh Chang are national park and regulations about spearfishing are not completely clear, I was not able to get a straight answers from anyone. Although locals fish everywhere, and you can charter a fish boat reasonably cheap.

mike, where would you go, what would be your place for snorkeling and spearfishing in Thailand? I am struggling between choices. Phuket and area around it, Koh Tao, Chantaburi, Koh Kood. I know nothing about these areas. I am planning my next trip, you can PM me with better options, like particular places and even hotels you liked, boats I can rent etc.

I`m going to koh lipe from february 2019. But I`m stronly advise not going to koh lipe alone. You must to know ropes.
Also you can try Koh mook - rubber tree bungalows. Owner mister Ot very good spearfishermen
Very good place Koh Kradan but only in one place - ao niang beach resort. But don`t take any other hotel you can` t spearfishing from them
