The aquatics center is professionally run by a highly experienced team of qualified instructors, with hundreds of certifications and thousands of dives. Even the coast line in front of the resort provides a wonder of marine life. Explore it by snorkeling off the beach and rocks along the resort coastline or at Koh Rung, the most famous site in the area for snorkeling. Or if you’d rather remain on the boat, try to catch your own dinner either in front of the Away resort or out on the gulf. All catches are brought back to the resort and prepared by the chef for your enjoyment.
