If you only do one trip in Koh Samui, it HAS to be this one. This was amazing, your first stop is snorkeling, the second is to some of the islands that look like animals, monkey island, lion island and crocodile island for a photo opportunity. Then you head over to another island where you climb to the top to see the green lagoon. A bit of a climb, but well and truly worth it. The fourth stop is to a traditional fisherman's island which is what Koh Samui use to look like before it was developed. At this island you get to have an amazing lunch (included in the trip) and walk around and see how the locals live. The fifth stop is at another island where you can go canoeing and for a swim. The guys on the boat got out a frisby for us to play with and the captain of the boat joined in. The crew were amazing, our guide Yo was fantastic, he served us watermelon and pineapple, there was (free) cold bottled water available. Best trip on our entire holiday.
Brilliant,beautiful scenery, snorkling great, meal was good plenty of it.. A good days trip.
A great day trip from Koh Samui with a variety of activities - something for everyone!
The snorkeling location was spectacular, though a bit crowded. The 10 minutes hike up one of the islands was the highlight of the trip, with a green lagoon opening up on the other side of the island.
Really enjoyed this tour, saw some beautiful sites. Tour guides were very good; because I was on my own they took lots of nice pictures for me. Free soft drinks and water on the speedboat. Boat can get pretty bumpy and on the way back everyone got absolutely soaked!
I loved this. Snorkeling was great, only two boats at stop so not crowded. Scenery on way to most beautiful beach was amazing, crew was great and humorous. I would recommend this trip.
This tour leaves from Bophut Beach. The snorkeling location we were taken to was perfect with an abundance of fish and the secluded island we visited was magic where you could kayak around the island or just play Frisbee on the beach. The team were a lot of fun, though the trip was a little rough on the return, it was still certainly worth it. Very much a relaxing tour.
This was a terrific day trip and included viewing sights that were very unique. You are taken on a boat, about an hours ride from Koh Samui, to snorkel near a small island, and then taken to view the Emerald Lagoon, which was an impressive site. The guide was fun, energetic and informative and made a point of showing us interesting rock formations or slowing near areas that would make for great photos. He also helped take photos for the tour group every step of the way. Lunch was at a small fisherman's village, and the food was better than expected. We ended the day on a secluded beach where you could either relax and swim or kayak to a nearby formation. The trip was outstanding and highly recommended.
Downsides to the tour, reason for not giving this 5 stars: The boat was absolutely packed, making it very close (and uncomfortable) quarters for changing into snorkeling gear and getting in and out of the boat. This tour would have been far more enjoyable had the group been smaller or the boat larger. It was hard to find a seat, and for such a lengthy journey, it detracted from the overall experience.
The tour was well organized and the staff made the trip even more enjoyable.
