About the Kia Ora Catamaran charter

Kia Ora has been around Koh Samui for over 9 years now. It has taken out over 20,000 passengers and has an excellent reputation for the provided service. It gets a large number of reapeating and referral clients. Our customers are well taken care of by both the crew and staff.

Kia Ora is one of the few catamarans on Koh Samui that offers both private sunset and private day trips. Its main focus is a high standard of service. That starts from the moment we pick you up from your hotel or villa and ends when we bring you back there. Aboard Kia Ora there is nothing to worry about as the crew takes care of food and beverages. The only thing you need to bring is a swimsuit and sunscreen and we’re off to go!

The Kia Ora catamaran operates throughout the year. It can take between 2 and 35 persons on board and it sails daily, either for a sunset cruise, a private day trip to Koh Phangan or both. It is the best choice for a family group charter, a honeymoon cruise for 2, corporate events or weddings. Are you planning on visiting Koh Samui in high season? Please make sure that you book well in advance as bookings fill up quickly. Our advice is to check with us in advance if there is availability in july & august, as well as around Christmas.

Enquire about the Kia Ora catamaran charter here. This is not a booking; we will check availability for you and get back to you within 4 hours.
