    Hi everyone!
    I am traveling to Phuket with 2 other non-divers, and we are hoping to make a trip out to the Phi Phi Islands or Phang Nga bay for a trip where I can do some scuba diving, and they can snorkel at the same time. It appears most dive shops allow non-divers to tag along, but I'm sure some companies are more diver-centric and end up with snorkelers feeling left out on that boat. Has anyone had experience with a boat that has a setup that makes it fun for both divers and non-divers?

    No diving in Phang Nga Bay, and as mentioned on a different thread already, Phi Phi trips from Phuket are either diving or snorkeling/sight seeing.

    I wondered why I couldn't find a dive shop anywhere near Phang Nga (town or bay). I really want to stay in that area because of the beautiful mountains, but I'm going to Thailand to dive. I booked a room on the northeast side of Phi Phi. It seems to have the best of both worlds.
