Ang Thong Marine Park: Full-Day Kayaking & Snorkeling Tour

1. Ang Thong Marine Park: Full-Day Kayaking & Snorkeling Tour

Discover the picture-perfect scenery to the northwest of Koh Samui. Embark on a guided boat trip to Ang Thong Marine Park and explore dozens of deserted beaches, bizarre rock formations, and calm blue waters. Kayak and snorkel your way through beautiful islands and islets. Be collected from your hotel and transferred to the Nathon pier. Meet your guide and the team, who will welcome you onboard the boat. Enjoy a light breakfast as your guide gives a briefing on the day’s activities while familiarizing you with the boat’s features. Visit Koh Tai Plao, the best location for kayaking, with amazing rock overhangs, tunnels, small caves, and a hidden lagoon to explore. Hop onto your kayak and grab a dry bag so you can take your camera with you. Take a dip in the inviting calm waters. Snorkel, swim, or jump from the boat. Enjoy a great lunch on board as you cruise through the park, heading to the second stop at Koh Mae Ko. Admire the island with a relatively short but quite steep climb to a viewing platform, where you’ll witness the breathtaking sight of the Emerald Lake. Finally, stop at the main island of Koh Wua Talap. Explore this area by kayak and circumnavigate the small adjacent island then return and relax on the beach. Alternatively, make the climb to the viewpoint where you will be rewarded with an amazing vista of the entire park. If you wish to, you can trek to the stunning Bua Bok Cave instead, and take in its monumental stalagmites and stalactites. For those who prefer to simply relax, the pristine beach here is a great spot to get some sun or find shade under one of the many palm trees. Head back to Koh Samui, while feasting on fresh fruit and a snack while you relax on the journey home.

From Koh Samui: Island Hopping with Snorkeling and Lunch

2. From Koh Samui: Island Hopping with Snorkeling and Lunch

Begin with hotel pickup in Samui between 8:30 AM-9:15 AM. Transfer to Koh Samui's inner river jetty and board the luxury dragon yacht departing towards the Five Islands with its spacious sun deck, onboard Jacuzzi, and comfortable indoor lounge.  Marvel at the brilliant ocean view around you including caves, beaches, and bamboo dwellings hanging off limestone cliffs. A rare phenomenon takes place on the Five Islands: the harvesting of bird nests, or as the locals call it, “White Gold”.  Journey to a snorkeling site at Koh Taen and explore the tropical reef. Opt to explore the site from the safety of a floating lounge that moves along the snorkeling site. Alternatively, feel free to sunbathe or relax in the Jacuzzi aboard the yacht.  Afterward, enjoy a freshly prepared buffet lunch made by the yacht's chef while you head back. Take in the spectacular views of the island coastlines. Savor fresh fruits and drinks as you admire the surroundings.  Choose between a dingy or kayak to the shore of Koh Rap. Go snorkeling, feed the deer, relax on the secluded beach, or have a drink at the bar. Around 3:15 PM, arrive back at the Koh Samui jetty before you transfer back to your accommodation.

Next, cross to Koh Madsum by speedboat, where on arrival you can swim or relax on the white-sand beach. Avail of access to a nice sunbed to top up your tan. Enjoy a tasty lunch at the beach, and then sea kayak in the warm tropical waters and soak up the island's beauty.

Spectacular and beautiful pictures of the rock formations in the water, interesting and adventurous kayak trip, delicious food on the ship. The highlight for me is the Emerald Lake and the Mu Ko Ang National Park with the little monkeys and the beautiful beach

Just great, the scenery was breathtaking and the guides were awesome. The even dived for our GoPro, after we lost it in the sea and found it. Would always recommend it.
