What You Can Expect

Koh Nang Yuan and Koh Tao Snorkeling Tour from Koh Samui

Koh Tao and Koh Nangyuan Snorkeling Trip from Koh Samui

After hotel pickup on Koh Samui, travel by speedboat to the island of Koh Nang Yuan. With three smaller islands making up this amazing destination, all connected by a large sandbank, Koh Nang Yuan offers an unbroken stretch of clean white sand to relax on. You’ll find fabulous corals and an amazing array of brightly colored fish in the crystal-clear, warm waters where sea turtles are also a common sight.

Spend your time swimming, snorkeling and sunbathing at this postcard-perfect spot before continuing on to Koh Tao. The island gets its name (translated as Turtle Island) due to its shape, and is renowned as one of the most scenic places for diving and snorkeling in the Gulf of Thailand. (Hint: You might spot sea turtles here too!)

After lunch is served, dive into the crystalline water to explore the corals and abundant marine life along secluded Aow Leuk or Leam Tien beaches, one of which will be visited (subject to weather and water conditions). Rest assured that both options provide plenty of picturesque vistas for swimming and snorkeling.

In the late afternoon, hop back aboard the speedboat for the return ride to Koh Samui with drop-off at your hotel.

This tour was amazing!

4 star rating: Recommended January 2012

The trip out was very rough, which meant fun for some people and using the bag for others. We went to some nice snorkeling places, and the view from the beach restaurant was great.

4 star rating: Recommended December 2011

Very enjoyable day. Would definitely do again.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better January 2013

I thoroughly recommend visiting Koh Tao but do not use this tour company. On our boat only two out of three engines worked, and we were over taken by many other speed boats as we were so slow, spending about 4 hours in a very overcrowded speedboat. Also, don't expect flippers for snorkelling :(

1 star rating: I do not recommend this July 2015

I have been several times in those kind of snorkelling tours in Phuket and without any doubt I can tell that this Koh Samui tour was the 'biggest torture' I have ever seen. First of all there were more than 25 people in the speed boat.We were sitting very uncomfortable due to the crowd also all got wet nonstop because of the waves during 3 hours of travel in total in a very rough sea. Seem like refugees
Net snorkelling time was around only 2 hours.
The only good thing that I have to mention is the transfer shuttle and its kind driver between hotel and the tour point.Overall this experience was a huge disappointment for me and as a result that was the first and the last time of my viator booking.
