Similian or Surin island for snorkelling??

We are looking to visit either island in next couple of days to snorkel, which is the better option, most reviews talk about dives rather than snorkelling and we cannot see many reviews on surin. We are beginners at snorkelling having only tried it once in Vanuatu. We'll be travelling from Khao Lak. Thanks

Most seem to advise Surins over Similans for snorkelling as well

In recent times, there were many tour groups that visit the similans, far less folk visit the surins

the coral , and marine life is also preferable at the surins, just don't expect too much...

Nothing of interest from the beach, though some persons fine it fun

its from the boat, but don't worry, I have major mobility problems and have very recently done a lot of snorkelling from the boat, so you will be fine

you will find the crew are most helpful

Kuraburi were our preferred operator
