Angthong National Marine Park Snorkeling Tour
Exclusive Snorkeling, Kayaking & Sightseeing
Boat Departs: 09.30hrs Returns: 17:00hrs Journey time 1hr (each way) - Maximum of just 12 guests per tour
Don’t leave Samui without taking the opportunity to visit the beautiful Angthong National Marine Park. This environmentally protected reserve comprises 42 islands and lies just 1 hour away by speedboat.
Our tour departs from Samui at 09:30, which not only allows you a more relaxed start to the day, but also avoids the other over crowded speedboats and larger boats which leave at 08:30.
The tour includes snorkeling at the northern most island called Koh Wao where the water is deeper and clearer than it is within the reserve affording you the opportunity to view the abundant corals and aquatic life.
You’ll then head into the centre of the Marine Park where we take a stop at the famous Emerald Lake - a stunning landlocked salt water lake separated from the sea by sheer limestone cliffs. For the energetic the Emerald Lake has a great viewing platform at the top of the island which affords stunning view over the whole of the National Park and is great for photo opportunities.
After a tasty lunch taken at a quiet beach and some time to relax on the beach you’ll then venture off on kayaks for a guided one hour tour of exploration along the coastline of Angthong’s islands. You’ll steer your way under rock overhangs, washing up for a short rest on one of the many idyllic and deserted beaches.
Our final stop of the day is Koh Wua-ta-lap – the Park’s headquarters - which gives you the opportunity to spot the resident dusky leaf monkeys and take a final swim or laze on the beach, before the speedboat heads off for the journey back to Samui.
Please note at certain times of the year depending on prevailing wind directions this itinerary might be altered as certain beaches are inaccessible.
With a minimum of 4 crew including 2 tour guides you will receive a very personal service and our crew will aim to cater for your every need. Please note that although we will always endeavor to avoid the crowds at all times, this is not always possible during the busy high season months on Samui.
