Ang Thong National Marine Park
Adult: 4950 THB Child 2950 THB (4-12 years old)
Departs at 9:30am
Note: Option for Kayaking or Emerald Lake Viewpoint Maximum 12 Guests
Departing from the beach in north east Koh Samui we head to Koh Wao (approximately 70 minutes journey time) which is the most northerly of the 42 islands (see maps) Koh Wao is one of the few islands in the Marine Park which offers sufficient visibility and abundance of underwater sealife to enjoy some snorkeling. As we cruise south the waters become more green coloured as we become closer to the mainland and rivers fed from the mountains. Following departure from Koh Wao we enjoy some spectacular limestone rocks, beautiful secluded beaches and some interesting caves.
Once we reach the Emerald Lake we offer our guests the option of visiting the Viewpoint an approximately 100m climb taking 10-15 minutes or for the more adventurous to take some Kayaking around the amazing limestone rock shoreline of the island. Next we cruise to a secluded beach for lunch and relaxing, swimming and beach activities. Finally before we depart the Marine Park we take a cruise around the island with a chance to see a dolphin on the way back to Samui.
Adult: 4,500 THB Child: 2,750 THB (4-12 years old)
Departs at 8:00am
PLEASE NOTE: We do not visit Koh Nangyuan island (because it is often too busy and snorkeling focused trip)
Koh Tao is an out and out snorkeling / diving tour and we depart at 08:00 in the morning – journey time is approx 90 minutes each way. We visit one snorkeling site in the morning for a couple of hours, have a break for lunch and then visit a second site in the afternoon. We usually leave Koh Tao at 13:30 – 14:00 and are back on Samui at around 15:00 – 15:30.
We do not use Koh Nang Yuan as one of our snorkeling locations, as the island does get very busy during high seasons as all the larger ferries and tour boats also use this as one of their snorkeling locations and in addition you are not allowed to take your snorkeling fins onto the islands. The snorkeling at Koh Nang Yuan is very limited and generally all you see is a mass of orange life jackets floating near the beach.
For the snorkeling we find alternative snorkeling locations such as Mango Bay, Japanese Gardens, Hin Wong Bay or Aow Leuk Bay – actual snorkeling locations on any given day will be dependent on time of year and prevailing wind direction.
We have dedicated snorkel guides who are in water with you all the time ensuring you get the most out of your day and we have life jackets for guests to wear in the water who are not confident swimmers.
Please note that the focus of our Koh Tao tour is on the in water activities and the snorkeling / diving – this is not a beach hopping / relaxing on beaches tour. There are very few beaches in Koh Tao where the speedboat can be taken to the beach and these beaches get very overcrowded so we usually take lunch on the speedboat.
All trips include return transfers, lunch, park fees, insurance, tea/coffee, towels, selection of soft drinks, fresh fruits, life jackets all sizes, mask, snorkel and fins all sizes with English speaking snorkeling guide. You can also bring own snacks/drinks recommend breakfast at hotel only tea/coffee served on board.
