What You Can Expect
Board a fully equipped 23 metre 3 level Escort boat. A light breakfast is served as we depart Koh Samui. Arrive Ang Thong National Marine Park and commence the first kayak trip traveling along the coastline of Koh Mae Koh. Along this course you will cruise beneath huge rock over hangings and experience some of the most beautiful beach in Thailand.
Arrive at the beach of Talay Nai or the Green Lagoon. Ascending the carefully constructed stairs and wooden walkways, passing through dense rainforest and deep ravines, at the top you will witness one of the greatest sights in the Park.
Once an enormous cavern, but now after its' ceiling collapsed, Talay Nai is a saltwater lake within the Island and a haven to a wide variety of marine life. Boarding the Escort boat again enjoying your lunch as we cruise through the magnificent scenery of the northern region of the Park. Making our way to Koh Wao or Tai Plao, and area where most other tours will not visit, but are the most spectacular and exciting for kayaking and snorkeling. Here you will kayak amongst bizarre rock formations and venture into hidden lagoons and caves.
After you will explore the underwater sights snorkeling, and it is recommended that you keep your eyes open for families of dolphins or the occasional sea turtle in these waters. Also experience the once in a lifetime thrill of Kayaking alongside the awesome and majestic Whale Shark. Depart the Park and head back to Koh Samui to your hotel.
The tour was great. The boat was old but still good. The hike was great but it is not the easy hike you are thinking. It is quite a trek but worth the view. The sea kayaking was spectacular. All in all be ready to take pictures and to do lots of trecking to see the views.
Amazing experience! Warning: the description presents the hike as if it no big deal but it is quite a trek and not for the faint of heart. I recommend bringing LOTS of water and your best tennis shoes. Climbing to the top is exhausting but well worth it once you see the view. We also loved the kayaking and the sights were incredible!
This tour was amazing!
Well organised, good guide and the group was great. Good value for money
This is a definite must do on your trip to Thailand. Just be sure to wear appropriate shoes for hiking as the hike is massive. But I loved this day trip, it was one of my highlights of my whole holiday.
A little tip is to eat breakfast before you go, but lunch was fantastic.
Awesome, you get soo close to the marine park, kayaking in a thunder storm was different captain knew his stuff so felt totally safe.x
This was an excellent experience! I couldn't recommend this any more -- the marine park is out-of-this world. If you want to venture off Samui to see some of the other "islands," this would be the one to go on. The kayaking was great too; the local tour guides really know where to take you and were extremely professional. Great food selection too! They were very generous with the food, water, soda...overall, terrific experience! As two 30 year old professionals from the USA, we couldn't recommend this tour any more!
Great tour! Really interesting kayaking route around rocks, very friendly and helpful stuff. The guide was very good, described the places we visited, explained everything about the tour, very interesting. Also liked the boat, very comfortable, plenty of places to seat under the tent, also large sun deck and you may seat of front of the boat. Snorkeling on approx. 4m depth, a lot to see. Good lunch and breakfast.
The tour was very well organized for the participants in a variety of languages. The head guide was very good, and gave a great run down of the tour before we really got going.
The food availability and variety was excellent, and made for a very enjoyable time as well.
The safety features were also excellent for us while snorkelling and kayaking. I loved the places we kayaked, and the fact that we had two chances to do it was great. The guides who took the smaller groups kayaking were good, and offered to take our photos so we could remember our time.
The scenery was outstanding, and the time visiting the Green Lagoon was also worthwhile. I loved the entire day!
