After pickup from your Koh Samui hotel, you’ll be transferred to the Red Baron to begin your full-day sail to Ang Thong National Marine Park. Hop aboard the elegant sailing yacht where your professional crew welcomes you with a complimentary cocktail.
You’ll find plenty of space to relax on the 99-foot (30-meter) long vessel. Claim a sun bed under the characteristic twin mast and large Thai-style sails or chill out at a wooden table in the covered salon. Enjoy breakfast on board (see sample menu in Itinerary below) as you cruise to famous beaches around Koh Samui, such as Lamai, Choeng Mon, Taling Ngam and Lipa Noi.
Then sail across the Gulf of Thailand to Ang Thong National Marine Park. This archipelago, consisting of 42 islands, is renowned for great snorkeling amid shallow coral gardens, caves and hidden lagoons. Ang Thong, which translates as ‘golden bowl,’ is also popular for its limestone cliffs that rise dramatically from the sea. Your crew will introduce you to the unspoiled white-sand beaches and secret hideaways of the Five Islands, Koh Tan, Koh Madsum and others. Dive in for a swim or go snorkeling among the reefs teeming with colorful fish!
When it’s time for lunch, enjoy mouthwatering Thai dishes at a lunch buffet and barbecue on board (see sample menu in Itinerary below). If you’d like, rent a kayak, enjoy a relaxing massage on board or smoke a cigar with a cognac or other alcoholic beverage from the bar (each at own expense). Upon return to shore, you’ll be dropped off at your hotel.
