Ang Thong National Marine Park snorkeling and kayaking tour

Red and Blue Dragon Classic Thai Yacht at Ang Thong national marine park

A holiday in Samui is never completed without visiting the picture-perfect Ang Thong Marine Park, Whose sheer limestone cliffs, hidden lagoons, white-sandy beaches and dense vegetation never fail to thrill. Ang Thong National Marine Park translates as "Golden Bowl" and occupies almost 250 sq. km of protected nature reserve consisting of over 40 islands. All of the islands are uninhabited and undeveloped except for one. The islands range in size from mere rocks in the deep blue sea to little paradise islands with white beaches and coconut trees. The book "The Beach" which the movie by the same name was based on starring Leonardo Di Caprio was inspired by and partially filmed at this location. Being in the Marine Park gives you the feeling of being an explorer, discovering the far ends of the world. The water is clean, calm and inviting, creating the perfect conditions to explore the park´s hidden treasures.

At Tours Koh Samui we offer two options for a visit to the marine park:

  • Our semi-private trip is designed for guests who prefer to avoid the crowds, enjoy safe and tranquil sailing, and value personal service.

Joint economy Marine Park Tour aboard the Speed Boat

The speedboat will take you first to the north of the Marine Park, to Koh Wao. Koh Wao consists of three islands with a shallow, sheltered bay in between, making it well-suited for snorkeling. The underwater life is not as abundant as at Koh Tao, but it is refreshing to jump into the water and swim around the beautiful bay. You will spend about 45 minute snorkeling at this site, where you will get a good glimpse of the Park's marine life

After snorkeling, the speedboat will take you nearby the most interesting limestone islands created by erosion of the earth which rise from the sea as dramatic rock cliffs and bizarre rock formations. Caves, hidden lagoons and white sand beaches are there to be explored.

At our next stop you will land at Talay Nai, then an easy and spectacular climb through dense rainforest and narrow ravines will take you to a fantastic viewpoint which looks out over the surrounding islands. Here you will have some time to enjoy the view and take some breathtaking pictures. A short stroll downhill will take you to the famous Emerald Lake, also known as the Blue Lagoon from the movie 'the Beach'.

From here, almost all Ang Thong Marine Park tour orators go to Wua Ta Lap Island (the Park's Visitor Center) for picnic lunch and kayaking. The visitor center is visited by many tour operators, making it very crowded. We choose instead to travel a bit farther to eat lunch and do sea kayaking at Koh Paluay's sea gypsy village.

On Koh Paluay you will have a freshly cooked buffet lunch in at the traditional Thai fisherman's village a restaurant. After lunch, the speedboat will take you to the south of the island to the secluded Song Pee Nong beach.
