Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Ko Thalu ตำบล ตลิ่งงาม อำเภอเกาะสมุย สุราษฎร์ธานี Thailand

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.


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.

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.

Duration: 1 hour

Pass By: Ko Wao Noi ตำบล อ่างทอง อำเภอเกาะสมุย สุราษฎร์ธานี Thailand

Sail north beyond the Marine Park waters, to Koh Wao, where you will find the best snorkeling sites.

Stop At: Ko Wao Yai ตำบล อ่างทอง อำเภอเกาะสมุย สุราษฎร์ธานี Thailand

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.

Duration: 1 hour

Pass By: Ko Lao Yu ตำบล อ่างทอง อำเภอเกาะสมุย สุราษฎร์ธานี 84140, Thailand

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.

Pass By: Koh Thong Thaeng, Ang Thong, Ko Samui District, Surat Thani, Thailand

Koh Thong Thaeng is one of the bigger islands in the Marine Park, and a beauty to behold.

Pass By: Ko Wa Noi ตำบล อ่างทอง อำเภอเกาะสมุย สุราษฎร์ธานี Thailand

Next, we pass Ko Wa Noi on our way to Ko Mae Ko to see the Blue Lagoon.

Pass By: Ko Sam Sao, Ang Thong, Ko Samui District, Surat Thani, Thailand

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.

Stop At: Ko Mae Ko, Ang Thong, Ko Samui District, Surat Thani, Thailand

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.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Blue Lagoon (Emerald Lake), Ko Mae Ko, Ang Thong 84140 Thailand

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.

Duration: 45 minutes

Pass By: Ko Wua Talap Island, Ang Thong Thailand

As we head back to Ko Samui, we will also pass Ko Wua Talap, the Marine Park headquarters.

Pass By: Ko Phaluai, Ang Thong, Ko Samui District, Surat Thani, Thailand

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.

Crew were very hospitable and friendly. Considering the small space to work in the food served was plentiful and excellent quality. Comfy bean bags were an option while cruising. Snorkel stop was good.

The highlight of our trip to Koh Samui! Definitely worth paying a bit more to go on this trip compared to other tours. Organisation and food is great. Snorkelling and sea kayaking lots of fun. We were also lucky to see some pink dolphins swimming near the boat. Highly recommended!

Great trip. Picked up on time. The boat was comfortable, with bean bags, hot tub with seawater which was lots of fun. The food was excellent. York and the rest of team were great. York in particular really went out of his way to make sure everyone enjoyed themselves, including turning the boat round to pick up one of the guys hats that had fallen in the water! Myself and one of the other girls were worried about snorkelling, so he suggested we went in a kind of dingy, where we could look over the side, and not miss this adventure, which we did! thanks York. It is a little more expensive than other trips, but worth the extra ,especially when you can see these beautiful places with out the crowds, basically getting the place to yourself. DONT MISS IT but just prepare yourself as it is a LONG DAY! we set off at 9am from our hotel, and arrived back at 8.15pm!

Booked the Classic Thai Yachts Sunset Boutique Cruise after seeing the reviews on the website, it is every bit as good as everyone says . Our trip got cancelled because of bad weather but they let us know in plenty of time and rearranged no problem to a couple of days later . We were on the small boat just 14 of us . Our guide York and our captain saw that we had an amazing day by telling us all about the Islands and looking after us so well . The food cooked by a lovely lady who l am sorry to say l cannot remember her name !! was delicious. We had fun in the jacuzzi, snorkelling, kayaking, and swimming on a beautiful beach and then York guided us up the steps to see the Blue Lagoon , he made it so much fun and took photos for us all . Fab memories l shall treasure forever . Thankyou York and team for a wonderful day .

What a great day! Picked up from my resort at exactly the time I was quoted in a comfortable mini-van with fellow travellers. Settled onto the deck of the Red Dragon where they had spread mattresses with towels for us to recline under a shady canopy. Some of us slept and relaxed on deck while we motored out to the National Park. We had a lovely breakfast/morning tea and then our first activity was sea-kayaking around the rugged limestone islands. Everything was done so well. All snorkelling equipment was cleaned and sanitised before use and great care was taken to ensure our life jackets and snorkelling equipment fitted properly. Alternative activities were offered if you didn't want to partake in the kayaking or snorkeling. Lunch was a delight and we all fitted into the booths in the saloon to eat together. We visited a beautiful lake on one of the islands and a short hike to view. Later we were given bananas and icecream to keep us busy until sunset while we motored back to Koh Samui. Couldn't have faulted a thing. All staff were helpful and good-natured and there were plenty of helpful hands to guide you into and out of the tender and kayaks, fitting your life-vests and the right sized fins. Our little chef was the star. She produced such amazing dishes for the 16 passengers and also the crew in a tiny space, no bigger than a walk-in wardrobe! Delivered back to my resort by 8pm. Yes it was a long day, but plenty of chances to catch 40 winks. I recommend this to anyone fit enough to get on and off the vessel, to walk up stairs, and reasonably confident in the sea. The only thing I skipped was jumping off the roof into the water - getting a bit old for such things!

I highly recommend this tour. I looked at many different options before deciding on this one and was very glad I did so. The whole experience was great. My wife and I really enjoyed this tour. The staff is incredible, they really care about your experience and want to make sure you have a great time. They go out of their way to make sure your not going to locations flooded with other boats. We had all areas to our selves on the day we went. Our guide York was amazing, his energy and enthusiasm were great. The food was exceptional and the boat is very comfortable with bean bags and plenty of drinks for the day. After the tour and when we really wanted to get some pictures had difficulty receiving our email I communicated with the owner Ron, and he quickly responded and gave us a link for pictures, etc. I can't recommend this tour enough. If your looking for a comfortable day with great food and great staff, pick this tour.

This was a wonderful cruise. The Yacht was amazing, and extremely comfortable, the people were so warm and friendly and the places we went were awesome. This was the last full day of our vacation, and I would not have wanted to end any other way. I would highly recommend it to anyone who was interested.

This was by far my favorite part of my trip in Koh Samui. You get so many activities and sights to see for your money. The whole crew and staff were super helpful and friendly! Shout out to George for the making the trip such a great time, he was so nice and had a lot of good information. I would highly recommend doing this tour! The islands were breath taking and I got some amazing photos! Definitely go on this tour if you love adventures and sight seeing. There was snorkeling, kayaking, hiking to emerald lake and visiting a beach off the island. It was amazing!!

Like many of the other reviews, I can only echo that this trip was unequivocally worth every cent. From the punctual and seamless departure, the spacious and well appointed Yacht, the carefully planned schedule to avoid the masses to the friendly and attentive staff - everything ran perfectly, in an unhurried yet thoroughly professional manner. The food was delicious, the kayaking and snorkelling wonderful and the climb to view the emerald lake truly memorable capped off by a wonderful sunset as we returned to Koh Samui. For anyone tossing up between this and a typical speedboat tour, don't even hesitate - I promise you won't regret it. Thanks for the wonderful day, the memories will not soon fade.

Highly recommended, Professionally handled, not rushed, As mentioned in the other reviews its a must go. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Good crew, and worth every penny.

This was a fantastic surprise. Extremely well organised. It begins with an email the previous day, asking for the hotel details. The pickup was on time, and the minibus was extremely comfortable. The Yacht is extremely comfortable Bean bags are sprayed across the covered area for all. There are cushions laid out for folks who would like to sunbathe. A morning snack was served around 10 30 am. Refreshments and water are on the house. Beer is available on purchase and is not very expensive. Lunch is incredible the chef was amazing. The four locations each have their charm. Snorkelling was incredible as they took us to a remote area, where the number of fishes and diversity of fishes was unparalleled. Kayakking costs 250 THB and is worth every cent. It was magical. The tour crew are extremely sweet and friendly. The magical sunset brought a perfect day to an end.

This was the highlight of our time in Koh Samui. By leaving later on a slower boat we didn't have to deal with any crowds so that many times it felt like we had the park to our self. The boat is large and nice. Bathrooms and drinks were available all day and the lunch and snacks were tasty. We splurged a bit on this tour and we are so grateful we did. We paid extra for the kayaking and if this is your thing I would highly recommend adding it on. People of all ages were on the tour and there was plenty of space for all the groups to spread out and be comfortable. It was a perfect day.

Not your usual speed boat tour. Great experience overall, though a bit slower and longer to get to the park compared to the speedboats.
