3-Night Sailing Cruise: Koh Samui to Koh Tao
Snorkeling, kayaking, sunsets and beach barbecues — what more could you ask for on a sailing trip in paradise? Your expert captain shows you around spectacular beaches and snorkeling spots on this 3-day sailing tour.
Your tour includes accommodation on board the catamaran with comfortable beds and bathroom facilities. Some rooms have double beds, which means that some passengers will be sharing a bed, making it an ideal trip for couples, friends and families traveling together. Solo travelers are welcome, too: Separate bedding can be provided along with a curtain or divider.
Everyone can enjoy 3 breakfasts, 2 lunches and 2 dinners.
Day 1: Ko Samui – Ang Thong National Marine Park (D)
Meet your captain and a small group of travelers in Mae Nam in the early afternoon. Once you have been oriented to your luxurious catamaran, set sail for Ang Thong National Marine Park. Ang Thong (which means golden bowl) is an archipelago of 42 islands, famous for sculptural limestone cliffs that rise out of the ocean. The islands are covered by a dense forest that monkeys, monitor lizards, hornbills and langurs call home. Deserted beaches, great snorkeling, shallow coral gardens, numerous caves and hidden lagoons make the marine park a natural treasure chest.
Anchor at stunning Koh Mae Beach where you can swim and snorkel. You can also follow your guide on a somewhat strenuous hike that rewards you with spectacular views of Emerald Lake (Thale Nai), a beautiful inland sea surrounded by limestone cliffs. In the evening, enjoy a delicious dinner and restful night on the boat.
Day 2: Ang Thong National Marine Park (B, L, D)
After a leisurely breakfast, discover the natural beauty of the park as you explore coves and limestone caves by kayak. Hop in the water to snorkel and marvel at the colorful fish and corals. You can also opt to simply relax on the beach or sun deck.
In the evening, your boat drops anchor and your group hits the beach to watch the sunset and have a barbecue. Put on some music and enjoy a private beach party in the moonlight.
Day 3: Mae Hat, Ko Tao (B, L)
Spend a relaxing day sailing to Ko Tao, one of Southern Thailand's truly amazing island getaways. Stop to swim in warm waters, lounge on white sand beaches and admire the gorgeous scenery before arriving at Mae Hat beach on Koh Tao. Head out in the evening to enjoy a scrumptious Thai meal (own expense) or have something to drink in one of the lively beach bars (own expense).
Day 4: Koh Tao (B)
Enjoy breakfast on the catamaran before saying farewell to your captain. Stay on in Mae Hat or continue to your next destination, the choice is up to you.
