Hello tal! The diving predetsya not to go and swim. Samui diving is not, for him to go to the neighboring Islands: Tao or Angthong marine Park or other. There is already a need to look at the storm and rain to go out to sea and not on the murky water. This is my IMHO. ...
While in the rain water sufficiently transparent? And what about "go" - all life in shipbuilding work, and there don't swim, and walk. So dive into the storm there, and in the rain? ...

Hello! Prompt who knows like Tao from Koh Samui to swim on one day. Boats and schedules. Or should not communicate, and to buy a tour? ...
Hello! As far as I know, Tao from Koh Samui directly on Lompraya to get there (it was an airline like this, read more here http://nashaplaneta.net/asia/thai/samui ... hp#ferries). but if you look at the schedule, it turns out that on the day in any way, only overnight. Anyway I think that this just makes no sense. If the island you want to see during the day, there is nothing to watch. If diving or snorkeling, then sailed to the island would not be able to dive. There are many excursions to Tao, so this really is the best option for you. But for good, better not to day, and for a couple of days to swim. ...
