Points Of Interest

  • minutes: Begin your journey at the southwest of Koh Samui where we will pass the picturesque Five Islands. These islands are home to a mysterious and rarely seen phenomenon, the harvesting of bird`s nests.
  • 60 minutes: Our first stop in the Ang Thong Marine Park archipelago is also the most remote and magical spot, exclusive to our tour. Go for a guided sea kayaking tour along the coastline to explore the dramatic cliffs, limestone islands, caves, magical tunnels, as well as a secret lagoon. Alternatively, hop on our dinghy that accompanies the kayaks.
  • minutes: Sail north beyond the Marine Park waters, to Koh Wao, where you will find the best snorkeling sites.
  • 60 minutes: Sailing further north we will reach the Ko Wao island group, which offers some of the best sites to explore the vibrant tropical reef. It's considered one of the top 20 snorkeling sites in Thailand. We're the only non-speedboat vessel to reach this destination. We'll select the optimal site depending on conditions, to ensure you have the best underwater journey possible. After a short safety briefing, our crew will fit you with complete snorkeling gear, and take you on a guided underwater tour, to see some amazing marine life. Non-swimmers and young children are welcome to get into our netted floating raft, which allows you to see the tropical reef from the safety of a raft.
  • minutes: We head back to the marine park and will pass Ko Lao Yu to enjoy the scenery. At this point, we will offer you a delicious buffet lunch while you journey along Ang Thong park`s most interesting limestone islands, which rise from the sea as dramatic rock cliffs and bizarre rock formations.
  • minutes: Koh Thong Thaeng is one of the bigger islands in the Marine Park, and a beauty to behold.
  • minutes: Next, we pass Ko Wa Noi on our way to Ko Mae Ko to see the Blue Lagoon.
  • minutes: As we head south, we will also pass Ko Sam Sao or three sister island, with its notable natural stone bridge that extends out into the sea, with clean white sandy beaches.
  • 15 minutes: Ko Mae Ko is where you will find the famous "Blue Lagoon", the inspiration for Alex Garland's book and later movie, "The Beach". Also known as the "Emerald Lake", locals call it "Talay Nai", which means "inside sea" and it is widely considered the highlight of the Ang Thong Marine Park. We are the last boat allowed to visit Ko Mae Ko, which means that we do not meet other organized tours.
  • 45 minutes: Here you can decide to climb up to the viewpoint or relax on the secluded beach. Climb up the steep stairs along narrow ravines to reach a panoramic view of the Park's 42 islands. Once we've reached the top, you will venture to the other side to take a closer look at the hidden saltwater lake completely enclosed, which besides its beauty, also acts as a natural nursery for all sorts of marine life.
  • minutes: As we head back to Ko Samui, we will also pass Ko Wua Talap, the Marine Park headquarters.
  • minutes: Cruise past Phaluai Island, one of the few inhabited islands in the Ang Thong Marine Park, home to a small community of "sea gypsy" fishermen, which are the original people that settled in the Samui archipelago. Enjoy the scenic cruise back to Ko Samui, cool down with a few drinks and a banana split on the deck, or take a dip in our jacuzzi. On most days you will embrace wonderful views of the sunset that will remain with you for a lifetime.
