Fabulous day. Well organised and thoroughly enjoyable. Never been sea kayaking before but we are now both hooked. Unfortunately I don't have any photos to share just now. Really cannot recommend highly enough.

It was our first time to kayak in the sea, we have learned a new skill and the guide was amazing!

We were picked up on time from our hotel. Amazing views even though we didn't manage to go all the way to the top even wearing the right shoes. Great boat ride, good food, helpful guides and fantastic kayaking. An enjoyable day!!

The tour was great. The boat was old but still good. The hike was great but it is not the easy hike you are thinking. It is quite a trek but worth the view. The sea kayaking was spectacular. All in all be ready to take pictures and to do lots of trecking to see the views.

Amazing experience! Warning: the description presents the hike as if it no big deal but it is quite a trek and not for the faint of heart. I recommend bringing LOTS of water and your best tennis shoes. Climbing to the top is exhausting but well worth it once you see the view. We also loved the kayaking and the sights were incredible!

This is a definite must do on your trip to Thailand. Just be sure to wear appropriate shoes for hiking as the hike is massive. But I loved this day trip, it was one of my highlights of my whole holiday. A little tip is to eat breakfast before you go, but lunch was fantastic.

Awesome, you get soo close to the marine park, kayaking in a thunder storm was different captain knew his stuff so felt totally safe.x

This was an excellent experience! I couldn't recommend this any more -- the marine park is out-of-this world. If you want to venture off Samui to see some of the other "islands," this would be the one to go on. The kayaking was great too; the local tour guides really know where to take you and were extremely professional. Great food selection too! They were very generous with the food, water, soda...overall, terrific experience! As two 30 year old professionals from the USA, we couldn't recommend this tour any more!

Great tour! Really interesting kayaking route around rocks, very friendly and helpful stuff. The guide was very good, described the places we visited, explained everything about the tour, very interesting. Also liked the boat, very comfortable, plenty of places to seat under the tent, also large sun deck and you may seat of front of the boat. Snorkeling on approx. 4m depth, a lot to see. Good lunch and breakfast.

The tour was very well organized for the participants in a variety of languages. The head guide was very good, and gave a great run down of the tour before we really got going. The food availability and variety was excellent, and made for a very enjoyable time as well. The safety features were also excellent for us while snorkelling and kayaking. I loved the places we kayaked, and the fact that we had two chances to do it was great. The guides who took the smaller groups kayaking were good, and offered to take our photos so we could remember our time. The scenery was outstanding, and the time visiting the Green Lagoon was also worthwhile. I loved the entire day!

Wonderful day away from the resorts. As a family of 5 we were well catered for and all instructions were very clear. Kayaking is a good work out for the upper body as well.
• Submitted 30 Jul 2010
The tour itself was very enjoyable. The chance to kayak up close and under some of the rock outcroppings was great. There was also a chance to snorkel while the other group was kayaking. Only thing was I felt the groups were too big. Must have been 20-25 per group which meant when the guide was talking it was difficult to hear out on the kayak - especially if you were at the back he could have started talking by the time everyone had stopped kayaking.

Great day. Was different to advertised as they only provided one short kayak. The first activity was a hike and we did not take appropriate gear. Bit we snorkelled instead which was good. You spend 4 hours of your day on a slow boat going out and back. My advice would be to take the speedboat option.
• Submitted 13 May 2016
This tour was really good. You really need to take proper shoes with you for the hike. Views are amazing. There is only a small amount of kayaking involved.
• Submitted 16 Apr 2016
The day was great and the boat staff very good. The water for snorling was very murky and visability was poor.Kayaking was great. The boat a little old but it did the job.
• Submitted 15 Sep 2015
The tour was wonderful - at least certainly in the elements that were controllable by the tour group. The guide offered both German and English language instructions for snorkeling, swimming, kayaking, and climbing the steep steps and platforms to view the sunken lagoon in Ang Thong. This part of the tour was certainly 5 star. The area in which we snorkeled was literally so cloudy that you couldn't see anything in the water not their fault, but rather the weather and the boat ride out to Ang Thong took approximately 2 hours each way, meaning 4 hours total spent on the boat. Overall, great job, and I'd recommend the tour to others.

Great fun and great value. Make sure you wear sneakers for the hiking portion.

Well organised tour, great guides, great kayaking, great day. Only downside was the poor visibility for snorkelling.
• Submitted 03 Mar 2015
Was a really fun day out. The National Park was beautiful and the lunch was very yummy. Kayaking was the highlight. I thought the day was very well organised. But there were a lot of people on the tour (circa 100) and I thought it would be a smaller group and a bit more personalised.
