Stop At: Ko Nai Phut, Ang Thong, Ko Samui District, Surat Thani, Thailand
Our first stop in the Ang Thong Marine Park archipelago is also the most remote and magical spot, exclusive to our tour.

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.

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.
