Lovely relaxing day,visiting a couple of near deserted beaches. Superb food, plenty of soft drinks to hand, and alcoholic also at an extra cost. Good comentry from the captain and good music played throughout the day. Very enjoyable
Unfortunately the weather for our trip was windy we missed out on going to most of the nice spots and snorkelling wasn and #39;t worth it. The business cannot control the weather. Boat was spacious and there weren and #39;t many on the boat. Food was delish! Our kids loved it and staff were amazing with the kids :)
Fantastic crew, hospitality, unique and comfortable boat. Great food and friendly atmosphere.
Absolutely amazing! Best crew who were so kind and helpful all day long. Welcome drinks upon arrival, snacks all day long, lovely lunch and phenomenal scenery. Cannot recommend more!
The most amazing trip for honeymooners...the crew it's just amazing and the food incredible. It's a must in ko samui
Brilliant boat, given story of how it was made. Captain is a fantastic man. Food is good and plentiful.x
Would be one of the best boat trips you are going to get.Captain and crew brilliant nothing was an effort, food was 1st class and plenty of it. We went on the brunch tour sunshing birds sing don't get much better than that
The Red Baron is a beautiful, comfortable boat. Very spacious and luxurious. Our cruise only had a handful of people on it, which meant we all had an entire section of the boat to ourselves. If you want plenty of sun and a great view, the top deck has some beanbags and beds (that also stack up into couches). When the sail is down there isn't a lot of shade, but you can find that at the back of the bottom deck or inside where the bar is. The crew on the Red Baron look after you exceptionally well. The food is also good. We hopped off the boat twice on this trip - once to go swimming and snorkeling and another time to visit a waterfall. This cruise is ideal if you want to enjoy the beauty of the islands in a relaxing way - not do too much and not feel rushed or cramped.
This boat is amazing and the crew was very attentive. The food was cooked on board while we played in the water and on an island. It was delicious! We were very happy with the excursion. The Skipper even let us take over the music and have a dance party at the front of the boat!
Snorkeling in Koh Samui is not great, but the skipper, ship, and destinations are amazing. The trip takes its passengers to a couple of secluded beaches (a nice change from the business of the main island). The Skipper is highly knowledgeable of the island and the boat is beautiful. Trip offers great opportunity to test gravity from the top deck before lunch is served. Stiff drinks make the ride home seem way too quick.
Lunch was definitely a surprise. You wouldn't expect that level of cooking on a boat but somehow they pull it off. The waterfall trip can be skipped - spending time on the beach is probably the more fun option. While passengers can get to the waterfall/beach excursion via dingy, its faster just to swim to shore.
Definitely was the highlight of my Koh Samui experience.
What a fantastic, relaxing day. Great boat, great food, great scenery and the staff on board were fantastic. Highly recommend
Amazing snorkelling beach, however the day we went out was too windy so spent way too much time in the boat with large waves rocking usa bigger speed boat would have been more suited to the open seas. Food was great. No massages as advertised tho.
My husband and I had a glorious day on this wonderful junk boat. The owner/skipper/host was very accommodating with only the guests enjoyment in mind. We were collected and transferred to the pier as arranged. We boarded the boat where we were met with the host. He gave us loads of information of the boat and the planned itinerary. All went smooth and according to plan. The only thing I would have wished for was for more time spent at our second and last stop. The host took us on a walk to a waterfall which was plesant however when we returned to the beach we were boarded back to the boat with no additional time for swimming or snorkelling. Perhaps had I known this I would not have taken the walk. This however did not impact our day at all. The food was marvellous and the host very gracious. He even offered us a free alcoholic beverage on our return journey. If you are looking at doing a half day tour please pick this boat as you wont regret it..... Thanks for a lovely day and if we are ever lucky enough to return to KS we will definately book the full day tour.
This was a fun way to get off Koh Samui and explore the waters of Koh Phangan, but the snorkeling wasn't really any better than our resort in Lamai beach. The food on the cruise was exceptional - some of the best we had during our time in Thailand. A fun activity, but if you're looking for great snorkeling then you'll probably want an activity that takes you to one of the other islands near Koh Samui.
The crew were very nice and food was great, but the snorkeling was way less that optimal - the water was very cloudy and it was difficult to see fish. The fish we did see were very small and nothing special. There also was no direction from the crew regarding the snorkeling equipment - mask only.
