Know More about this tour

After pickup at your hotel, your day tour begins with the 45-minute speedboat ride from the Maenam pier on Koh Samui to Angthong Marine National Park, where you'll arrive in the mid-morning.

Translating to 'golden bowl,'Angthong occupies nearly 95 square miles (250 square km) and includes 19 square miles (50 square km) of fascinating karst topography and limestone islands that rise from the sea. Known for its natural beauty and untouched conditions, the marine park is home to 42 islands, all of which are uninhabited and undeveloped except for oneKoh Paluaywhich is inhabited by so-called 'sea-gypsies' who still earn a living from fishing. The island looks like Koh Samui did 40 years ago, prior to the arrival of tourism and modern infrastructure.

During the day, you'll island-hop through the archipelago, visiting the park's principal islands (including Phaluai, Wua Ta Lap, Mae Ko, Sam Sao, Hin Dap, Nai Phut, and Phai Luak), where you can check out rock formations, lagoons, and caves. At midday, enjoy a Thai lunch at a local restaurant on the island of Woa Ta Lab, and spend the afternoon sunbathing, swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, or simply relaxing on the endless white-sand beaches of the islands.

Your tour ends with return to Koh Samui at approximately 4:30pm.
