Thailand is famous for its pristine white sandy beaches and under-water treasures. Koh Samui is one of those sites blessed with fascinating sea creatures living in the always inviting blue-green waters off the gulf of Thailand.

If you are not into scuba or don’t have the time to invest in under water activity that require lengthy training or complicated equipment, then Sea-walking is just for you.

seawalking 1Sea-walking is the most easy and exciting underwater sport on the island. It is a new and up-coming underwater activity now available for the whole family in Koh Samui.

The ease of the sea –walking system enables practically anyone, including non-swimmers, children and the elderly, to be immersed in a world previously limited to those with advanced skills or certifications.

“…as simple as walking and breathing,
and you don’t have to know how to swim
— you can even wear prescription glasses.”

All you need to do is wear a big brass diving helmet, which resemble those used by astronauts when they land on the moon. Made of clear glass, the face of the helmet allows the wearer to clearly see everything around him in the water.

Air pumped into the helmet through a special tube, allowing the user to breath easily and comfortably. Sea-walking helmets are designed for both adults and children aged seven and above.

Operating from Thong Krut, famous for its brightly colored fishing boats and friendly fisherfolk, Sea-walking (the name of the business) takes its guests to Koh Tean and Koh Mudsum islands southwest of the Samui on a longtail boat.

The waters of Koh Tean and Koh Mudsum teem with marine life of various shapes and colors, including anemone, stingrays and corals.

On top of all the excitement of walking with the fish, the experience of walking in next to zero gravity (like the men on the moon) is making the trip an unforgettable day for everyone.

To top everything, on the way back, we make a stop on a secluded beach for a bit of relaxing and snorkeling.
