About the Kayaking at Angthong Tour
We take you from Koh Samui on our 23 meter boat to the beautiful Ang Thong Marine Park for a kayaking tour. The kayak tour starts with picking you up from your hotel or villa anywhere on Koh Samui. The pickup time is generally between 7:15 and 7:30 in the morning.
The tour boat leaves from Nathon Pier, which is located on the north west coast of the island. At 8:00 we take you to Angthong Marine Park in just under 2 hours. On the boat we enjoy a light breakfast, while you can enjoy the amazing scenery of Angthong as we are getting closer.
Kayaking, sightseeing and snorkeling
On entry at the park , our guide gives you a briefing of the activities of the day. This one day tour includes kayaking, sightseeing and snorkeling. We own a fleet of the best and most professional kayaks (Ocean Kayaks as its brand is called). The name of the model is Malibu Two, which is known as the world’s best sit-on-top sea kayak. Before you can start paddling, our tour guide will also give you an instruction on how to steer your kayak around the waters. The Ocean Kayaks are easy to maneuver. You don’t need any previous experience to be on this tour!
The kayaking experience starts at Koh Mae Ko, halfway Angthong Marine Park. Our guide will lead the way as you paddle along the white sandy beach of this island. We then head to the shores, where you can have a look at the beautiful Emerald lake (also referred to as Green Lagoon). We then head back to the boat for a delicious Thai buffet lunch. The boat heads to our next stop: to the northern end of Angthong Marine Park: ‘Koh Tai Plao’.
Kayaking through caves and around the islands
Refreshed after lunch, our guide will take you by kayak through tunnels, along steep rock formations and into mysterious caves. The highlight of the day! When we end the 2nd kayaking trip, we take you to Koh Tai Plao for some cooling down: snorkeling. As the marine life is still very present on this part of Angthong, you can explore the underwater world there together with numerous fish and other creatures.
On the kayaking tour you will be able to spot a lot of dreamy, deserted beaches. While kayaking, please keep your ears and eyes open. Not only because it’s safer; but you might be able to spot dolphins, whales or monkeys who live on or around the islands. Keep your camera ready at all times for some unforgettable memories. Our return will be at the end of the day, where we sail back to Koh Samui and bring you back to your hotel or villa.

we had a great trip and great explanation prior to that in the office of kohsamuitour. Oscar thank you for the great help; I can only give you 5 stars!!
We visited Ko Samui in june 2016. As we have been to the island and its surroundings many times, we decided to go back to Angtong marine park for something different: a kayak trip. That worked out really well as it is such a nice day trip! On a kayak you can come so much closer to the natural surroundings, it really gives you a free and natural feeling. Also big thumbs up to Bluestars for their work during the day. Made the holiday!
