We start the day by collecting you from your hotel lobby on Koh Samui and then taking you to our private pier at Bang Rak beach. You’ll be welcomed with a light breakfast and then it’s straight off to Koh Nangyuan.

After a 90-minute journey to the Koh Nangyuan island, you can go two ways: either straight to the ocean to see the marine life or head to the viewpoint! Not everyone gets to the top, but those who do are rewarded with a lasting memory and photo to match. It takes about 15 minutes to get to the top so there are no excuses, so get to it!

Koh Nangyuan is also a great place to chill and relax. The beach is unique, the snorkelling is great and there are sunbeds and umbrellas available to rent to take in the sea view. You can enjoy the morning as you please here and roam the islands freely.

Sights and activities on the tour:

  • Exciting speedboat journey to the islands
  • Rich and diverse marine life off the coast of Koh Tao
  • Great viewpoint for an awe-inspiring photo opportunity
  • Swim and kayak in the dreamlike turquoise waters of the gulf

After you’ve explored the sea life around Koh Nangyuan, you will move on to the nearby Koh Tao where you will be treated to an authentic, local Thai lunch at a restaurant by the sea tucked away in a hidden cove.

Koh Tao (“turtle island” in Thai) is only 21 kilometres in length, so our speedboat will ensure you see all the best spots for snorkelling around the island. These places change depending on weather conditions and the time of year, but our guides and crew will ensure you see the best spots. Sometimes, we’ll make a stop at the Buddha Rock, a spiritual and revered place for locals as the sculptured rocks represent giants which overlook the sea.

The beauty of this tour is that there’s a little bit of everything packed into one day. It’s action-packed and adventurous with kayaking and snorkelling. There’s also time to chill on the beaches if you wish to rest. You choose how you want to spend your time! With our guides there to provide the fun, food and fish, all you have to do is relax and enjoy the day.
