Breathtaking Koh Tao & Koh Nang Yuan

The islands Koh Tao and Koh Nang Yuan, located north of Samui, are two of the world’s most breathtaking islands. They are widely known as the best snorkeling spot in the Gulf of Thailand, which is included in this one day tour. You can discover the absolutely beautiful coral reefs at some of the following amazing bays; Tian Nok, Sairee, Mango and Hin Wong bays. On this speedboat tour from Koh Samui we also explore Koh Nangyuan, the island next to Koh Tao and if you feel up for it you can take a walk up to the world-famous viewpoint for some amazing pictures.

What will you do during this tour?

In the morning we pick you up from your hotel or villa on Koh Samui, somewhere between 07:30 and 08:30, depending on your location. A more accurate pickup time will be stated on your confirmation email. After a light breakfast at the pier, we depart by speed boat from the north of the island and head to Koh Tao in about 1 – 1.5 hour. At Koh Tao we stop to do some snorkeling in one of the many bays around the island. We visit at least 2 of them, so you can enjoy different kinds of fish and different views of Koh Tao. Think of Mango Bay, Shark Bay, Ao Leuk or any other bay around the island.

Next we will stop around Sairee Beach in one of the many seafront restaurants for a delicious Thai buffet style lunch.

After lunch we will bring you to the stunning Koh Nangyuan, where you will have around 1.5 hrs free time. Here you can simply relax on the spotless beaches, snorkel in the crystal clear waters, or if you are feeling energetic, hike up to the world famous viewpoint overlooking this tropical paradise.

The stops are dependent on the weather and how busy it is at any given time at the bays and the stops are at the discretion of your captain and guide on the day. At the end of this day trip we head back to Samui, where we arrive at around 16:30. An air conditioned transfer will bring you back to your hotel or villa on Koh Samui.

Great snorkelling. Beautiful nang yuan

Lovely day out. Our tour guide ken was excellent and gave great information. He gave us tablets for sea sickness which I'm delighted we took as the sea was choppy. If you're looking to spend time exploring koh tao don't book as you just eat here and leave however nang yuan is breathtaking great snorkelling on this trip too

by Petter on Koh Tao Tour

Fantastic daytrip with speedboat to Ko Tao. Super-well organized, the staff is super friendly, proffessional and care-taking. Allways checking up on the participsnts well-being and offering water and comforting those getting a bit seasick. The sea is a bit rough, but the skipper is quite good at trying to meet the waves in best possible way. Lunch was very good. The snorkeling spots just spectacularly good! DO NOT HESITATE to book this trip! Worth every baht!
