Group water tours have long been the norm' in Phuket:
you book a trip at your hotel's front desk or tour counter and join
a day with new friends. Coral Seekers can provide something a little
bit extra your own personalised day out on the beautiful waters
of the Andaman Sea or the calm of Phang Nga Bay.
As Claire explains, "We do this so that families and couples
can have an enjoyable day. We concentrate on offering the best quality,
so that children will be able to enjoy snorkelling in a life jacket
and mask that fits."
Coral Seekers' aim is that all members of the trip enjoy the snorkelling
experience, not only for water awareness and safety reasons, but
also for the appreciation of what is under the surface of the sea.
"We like to teach the children the different names of the fish
and, in very simple terms, the importance of coral", she says.
The beauty of the waters surrounding Phuket is renowned . . . what
is different is to have a local company on a tropical isle offering
to take you, your friends and family, to destinations otherwise
generally unreachable or difficult to access: this can only enhance
Although this type of activity is what the company is renowned
for, they offer much more. The recent explosion in MICE (meetings,
incentives, conferences and exhibitions) trips to destinations such
as Thailand provided a new challenge. "We customise trips to
suit any group, as sometimes they can be busy and just have a few
hours to do something that is fun. We also do special events on
islands for them and offer team building and fun games for meeting
groups that want something for participants to get to know each
other. We have been doing this for just over a year and have quite
a few return clients . . . we concentrate on making everything perfect,
so that we always have happy customers." One example is General
Electric, who have just returned for their sixth year!
Another service (group bookings alone at the moment) is childrens'
camps. This enables parents and children to go to a secluded island
where the children are occupied with fun activities, the parents
can swim, snorkel or relax and all have a great time.
The service provided by Coral Seekers is fairly unique and one
which is welcomed by locals and visitors alike. The whole experience
enables anyone; swimmer, snorkeller, sunbather or onlooker, to see
the area surrounding Phuket at its best . . .
